The spat resulted in a viral Twitter thread that had all the twists and turns of an Christie Agatha page-turner.

While the Internet had fun with the drama between the warring WAGs (WAG stands for wives and girlfriends of high-profile sportsmen and women, FYI), it was no laughing matter behind the feed, with Rebekah suing Coleen for defamation in 2020. A years -long legal battle followed, with a judge ultimately ruling that Coleen did not defame Rebekah.

Since pressing send on that tweet that nearly broke the Internet, Coleen had not spoken publicly about the case.

Until now.

Coleen, 37, shared all of her receipts and then some in Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story, the Hulu Original documentary series that breaks down every aspect of the libel case. And yes, Wagatha Christie herself has seen all of the memes and mocking of scandal, which, the documentary proves, had a serious impact on her marriage and her mental health.
