Wayne Rooney is reportedly concerned that the lawsuit involving his wife Coleen with Rebekah Vardy for allegedly disclosing false information to the press has "gone too far."
The Rooney family is apparently feeling stressed this week about the possibility that their personal lives could be disclosed to the court.
If the case comes to court, Coleen will try to prove that Rebekah's Instagram account was responsible for the fact that several stories about her have been published in the past year.

MailOnline asked representatives of Coleen and Wayne Rooney to comment.
The women have been in conflict since Coleen Rebekah publicly accused her Instagram account of sharing private stories to the media last year, which she denies.
At the recent turn, Rooney's wife described Rebekah as "disappointing" for her decision to move the lawsuit forward.

Rebekah, who vigorously rejects the allegations, has filed papers to bring her nemesis to the High Court for defamation.
According to the court list published last month, the star of I & # 39; a A Celeb is represented by Kingsley Napley in London and has to spend £ 500,000 to sue her former buddy.
Earlier this year, the two communicated via video meeting in a last attempt to save the expensive court fees and resolve their differences, but their efforts were unsuccessful because they could not repair bridges.

Coleen's lawyer, Paul Lunt von Brabners, said in a statement: “It is disappointing that Ms. Vardy has decided to go to court.
Coleen believes that the time and money could be used better. Your offer to meet face to face remains.
"Ms. Vardy's decision to initiate legal proceedings means, at least, that Coleen's evidence could be released in due course."
The WAGS in the war were once good friends until Coleen published some shocking allegations on social media last year.

Failed attempt: Earlier this year, WAG rivals tried to avoid court fees and resolve their differences in a video meeting, but their efforts were unsuccessful and they could not catch up.
She claimed that she posted fake stories about basement flooding and returned to her Instagram story that only Becky could see.
The stories were then released to the press, prompting Coleen to believe that her former friend was the culprit who provided the information.
Rebekah, who denied all the allegations and was pregnant at the time, shortened her family vacation to Dubai shortly after the dramatic accusation that conquered Britain in the so-called "War of the WAGs" and earned Coleen the nickname "Wagatha Christie".
Vardy's wife has made it clear that she is determined to clear her name and will not resign until her rival makes an apology.
