The news comes as the court battle between Becky and Coleen Rooney continues.
Last month, Coleen Rooney suffered a setback in her defence against Becky’s libel case.
She has been denied permission to bring a claim against Rebekah’s agent as part of a legal battle between the footballer’s wives.
In a pretrial hearing, a series of conclusions were made ahead of the libel trial – which is supposed to take place in May but now may be delayed.
Coleen’s Legal team had asked for Becky’s agent, Caroline Watt, to be included as a “additional claim” within the case for misuse of private information.
Coleen’s legal team, led by Mr David Sherborne, previously claimed Rebekah had leaked information to The Sun either directly or through her agent Caroline Watt “acting on her instruction or with her knowing approval”.
However, a two day hearing last month ended in Mrs Justice Steyn refusing permission for the additional claim against the agent and for it to be heard alongside the libel trial.
Still, the judge did give permission for Coleen to amend her defence and include an allegation that, through Caroline, Rebekah provided information to The Sun about an unnamed professional footballer.
Mrs Justice Steyn gave permission for Whatsapp messages between Rebekah and her agent during the relevant period to be disclosed and allowed an order that both parties can make a joint request for information to Instagram. She refused other disclosure applications made by both parties.
