After working his magic with the KSI and Logan Paul boxing match, promoter Eddie Hearn has his eyes set on Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy.
It comes after the two women got into a rather heated back and forth that set the world alight, after Coleen – who is married to Wayne Rooney – accused Rebekah of ‘selling stories’ about her in the press.
Rebekah – who is the wife of Jamie Vardy – hit back and denied the rumours, with claims she’s now asked for a forensic investigation of her phone to find the culprit who may have been leaking social media posts to the press.
It’s a drama fit for a TV movie, or, for Eddie, the boxing ring.
Speaking to IFL TV he was asked whether he was considering putting Coleen and Rebekah on the KSI/Logan Paul undercard next month.
A tough chance that will ever come off, but Eddie is remaining positive.
‘I must say, I did find that fascinating this morning. And I loved Coleen Rooney the way she wrote out like blah blah blah,’ Eddie beautifully detailed.
‘And I was like obviously she’s not going to say [who it is], and obviously it’s just a mate – and it was “It’s… Rebekah Vardy’s account”. Dun dun dun. And Rebekah Vardy came back and said other people have access to her Instagram account, so…’
As he was pushed on whether or not he’d push for the chance to promote such a fight, he continued: ‘Shut up mate. I’m only doing KSI against Logan Paul, they have had a fight before.’
But still, if he got them together for a charity match it might work out.
‘For Sport Relief I would yeah. For charity,’ he continued.
‘You know what, they’d probably be quite decent as well. It would be massive wouldn’t it? How many buyers? A million buys!’
Yesterday Coleen levelled the dramatic accusations at her fellow WAG, revealing she’d been working behind the scenes to try and expose whoever was allegedly leaking fake news to the press.
She cited several examples of stories and insisted she took screenshots.
‘For a few years now someone I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The Sun newspaper of my private posts and stories,’ she wrote on Twitter.
‘There has been so much information given to them about me, my friends and my family – all without my permission or knowledge. After a long time of trying to figure out who it could be, for various reasons, I had a suspicion. To try and prove this, I came up with an idea. I blocked everyone from viewing my Instagram stories except ONE account. (Those on my private account must have been wondering why I haven’t had stories on there for a while.)
‘Over the past five months I have posted a series of false stories if they made their way into the Sun newspaper. And you know what, they did! The story about gender selection in Mexico, the story about returning to TV and then the latest story about the basement flooding in my new house.
‘It’s been tough keeping it to myself and not making any comment at all, especially when the stories have been leaked, however I had to. Now I know for certain which account/individual it’s come from.
‘I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It’s…… Rebekah Vardy’s account.’
Rebekah fired back in her own statement, writing: ‘As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this. I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me over the years can vouch for.
‘If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped. Over the years various people have had access to my Insta and just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.’
The reality star continued: ‘I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you? I liked you a lot Coleen and I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant.
‘I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this. You should have called me the first time this happened.’
