In October 2019, the mum-of-four accused Rebekah, the wife of Jamie Vardy, of leaking "false stories" about her private life to The Sun after a months-long sting operation. Rebekah denies the claims and subsequently sued Coleen for libel.

Coleen's hotshot lawyer is David Sherbrone; his previous client list includes Sir Paul McCartney, Sienna Miller, Meghan Markle, Michael Douglas and former prime minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie. Meanwhile, Rebekah has enlisted Hugh Tomlinson who has previously worked with Prince Charles, Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs.
