Rebekah Vardy has admitted she has been paid for photographs of herself, her family and her pets which were sold to the media.

Rebekah, 38, made the confession, explaining she would “receive a percentage of the revenue from their syndication” to media outlets in court documents.

The court documents were filed as part of Rebekah’s ongoing court battle with Coleen Rooney,who Becky is currently suing for libel following claims she “leaked stories from her private social media to the press”.

Rebekah has vehemently denied 34 year old Coleen’s claims and is now suing her for libel in a High Court battle.

In court documents, Rooney claimed Vardy “worked with a number of agencies to bolster her public persona”.

Coleen claimed Rebekah “insisted” England’s WAGS “posed for a group photo” outside a restaurant in St Petersburg at the 2018 World Cup.

The mum of four, who has reportedly had enough of her WAG war with Rebekah, claimed Becky “did not let the others know” she “arranged” for a “paparazzo to be outside to photograph them”.

Her statement said it could be “inferred” that Rekebah “received payment directly or indirectly” when the photo was sold to the media.

Rebekah has responded and denied Coleen’s claims and said she “had nothing to do with the photograph” and “received no payment” of the group photo of the WAGS in 2018.

The document added: “She did not arrange for a photographer to be present and received no payment”.

The star, who is set to appear on Dancing on Ice next year, admitted she had separately worked with a UK-based agency who would take photographs of her, “or her family or pets on the basis that she would receive a percentage of the revenue from their syndication”.

Rebekah also denied that she is the person behind The Sun’s Secret WAG column and “has never been a source for the column”.

Shortly after she filed the lawsuit against Coleen, Wayne Rooney’s wife’s legal team shared their disappointment at the filing.

Coleen’s legal team released a statement which read: “It is disappointing that Mrs Vardy has chosen to issue court proceedings.

“Coleen feels that the time and money involved could be put to better use; her offer to meet face to face still stands.

“Mrs Vardy's decision to issue court proceedings does at least mean that Coleen's evidence can be made public when the time is right.”
