Coleen Rooney has tweeted for the first time since the now-famous post of October 9, in which she claimed fellow WAG Rebekah Vardy has been selling stories about her family to the press.
Uploading a shot of her youngest child, Coleen, 33, the wife of footballer Wayne Rooney, 33, explained she has had to remain in the UK and skip her family’s half-term break to Barbados due to illness.
‘Lovely morning in the fresh air with Cass,’ she posted on Sunday evening. ‘We had planned to be with the rest of our family in Barbados for half term break.

Cancelled: The WAG, 33, told her Twitter followers she was home in the UK with her youngest son Cass, 20 months, recovering after falling ‘poorly with an injection’
‘Unfortunately I became poorly with an infection before we were due to leave. I am not able to join them for the time being, even though I am feeling better [sic]’
The tweet came as Wayne was spotted touching down in Barbados on Sunday to join his three other children for their trip, before joining friends and family on the beach near their home on the Caribbean island.
The football star arrived a few days after his sons – Kai, nine, Klay, six, and Kit, three – who jetted over with their grandparents Colette and Anthony McLoughlin, Coleen’s parents.

Meanwhile, Coleen’s dramatic revelation enthralled Britain and sparked an angry denial from pregnant Rebekah, who said ‘I don’t need the money’ and pointed out other people have had access to her Instagram account.
Rebekah recently gave an interview with The Daily Mail, in which she insisted arguing with Coleen is akin to rowing ‘with a pigeon.’
Rebekah was pictured returning to the UK in floods of tears after the scandal broke while she herself was on holiday with her football star football Jamie.

Sources close to Becky say leading law firm Kingsley Napley has sent Coleen a letter on her behalf demanding she provides them with the evidence she has against Becky so that she can complete her investigation.

Becky has called in a forensic team to analyse her Instagram account.
The aim is to identify the mole who sold fake stories to The Sun from Coleen’s Instagram account.
As part of that probe, they say, they have asked Wayne’s wife to give them the proof they have that the source must have been Becky’s Instagram account.
