Disney+ buys a documentary on ‘Wagatha Christie’ story

A blockbuster case centered on who got access to a celebrity’s Instagram Story will be the subject of a new Disney+ documentary. Wagatha Christie will tell the story of broadcaster Coleen Rooney, who is married to former Manchester United and England soccer superstar (and current DC United coach) Wayne Rooney. After stories of Rooney’s life leaked to the press, stories that seemed to be communicated only through private Instagram Stories messages, Coleen opted to do some detective work. After a lengthy investigation, Rooney believes the source of the leaks is Rebekah Vardy, wife of Leicester and former England star Jamie Vardy.

The incident, made fresh and different thanks to social media, was then brought up after Rooney went public that Vardy was the source of the leaks. In a tweet containing a screenshot essay, Rooney explained how she narrowed down the options with a series of fake stories aimed at increasingly small groups of Instagram close friends. The revelation led Vardy to sue Rooney for defamation, but Vardy managed to significantly weaken his case after failing to release the requested data as part of the trial.

(Oh, for those who don’t know: WAG is an acronym for “Wifes and Girlfriends”, a derisive term used to refer to a soccer player’s partners, usually while playing for the team. Agatha Christie is the author of several detective stories, including the Poirot and Miss Marple series. Don’t say the British don’t love a good pun.)
