The wife of ex-England footballer Wayne Rooney is being sued by her former friend after publicly accusing her of leaking stories about her private life. The bitter dispute has raged for 18 months, with another High Court hearing scheduled for July 2.
But friends of Coleen say she is considering throwing in the towel because her legal team are struggling to find vital evidence.
One told The Mail on Sunday: ‘She is still convinced she’s in the right but that is very different from being able to prove it in a court of law. She wanted to settle this amicably ages ago but to her dismay, it has dragged on.’
Lawyers said the total estimated legal bill to date stands at £1.3 million – £900,000 for Rebekah and £400,000 for Coleen.

In the event of a trial, whoever loses will probably have to meet the other’s costs as well as their own. Damages could take the loser’s bill to more than £2 million.
It is understood that Rebekah is asking that Coleen pays her costs and damages and issues a public apology.
A source close to Rebekah, whose husband Jamie played for England with her rival’s husband, said: ‘Rebekah will not drop her demands of a sorry from Coleen. She feels that a lot of pain and upset has been caused by the accusations against her.’
The dispute began in 2019 when Mrs Rooney, 34, publicly accused Mrs Vardy, 39, of leaking stories from her private Instagram account. In a ‘sting operation’ that earned her the nickname Wagatha Christie, she turned detective to find out where newspaper stories about her were coming from.

The mother-of-four planted fake posts on her private Instagram account, then claimed to have blocked all of her followers except Rebelah, who is now claiming aggravated damages and seeking an injunction preventing Coleen from repeating the allegations.
An effort to resolve the dispute through mediation failed earlier this month and plans for a full trial were made.
Court papers filed by Coleen last year claimed Rebekah was the ‘Secret WAG’ behind an anonymous column in The Sun on Sunday. Last summer, Coleen instructed celebrity barrister David Sherborne to represent her.
A spokesperson for Coleen declined to comment.
