Rebekah Vardy says she stopped taking kids to Jamie’s games over ‘cruel chants’

Rebekah Vardy has sensationally revealed she stopped taking her kids to Leciester City matches to watch dad Jamie due to the cruel chants the crowd would sing.

WAG Vardy, 40, saw her 'Wagatha Christie' libel case against Coleen Rooney thrown out of the high court last week when judge Mrs Justice Steyn ruled the former I'm A Celeb star had leaked stories about Rooney to the Sun newspaper, labelling Vardy's evidence as "manifestly inconsistent . . . evasive or implausible".

"I’ve had death threats, rape threats, pretty much everything. It’s the pits, really," Vardy told the Sun following the ruling. "I’d go to a football game and there would be these chants sung about me.

"There was a point where I had to stop taking the kids to go and see their dad play football because of how bad it was.

“I was devastated, and it’s really hard to talk about. As a mum, all you want to do is shield your children from all that s*** and sometimes it’s just impossible to do."

Vardy also commented on the "insane" abuse she received when Coleen dropped the bombshell "It’s . . . Rebekah Vardy’s account," statement on social media in 2019. She said: "The abuse I was getting was insane. At the beginning, it would be 100 messages a day.

"I even got letters sent to my home, and some crazy s*** sent over including letters from psychics. I was linked to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, people suggesting I was a member of IS, stuff like that.

"It was as if I’d murdered someone. Every time something happened it was my fault, every time something new broke, it was my fault. It’s really hard because you can give out advice, but actually, when you have to take your own advice, it’s completely different.

"Jamie and everyone was like, ‘Just don’t read it. These are people that have just got nothing better to do with their lives’. But my line is, when you bring my family into something when you subject my children to such vicious and disgusting hatred, it does get my attention and it is hurtful."
