Rebekah Vardy has said she has been "inundated with messages" following Coleen Rooney's allegations that her Instagram account was involved in leaking false stories about her to the press.
Rooney, the wife of footballer Wayne Rooney, has pointed the finger at fellow footballer Jamie Vardy's wife's Instagram account over stories based on her private social media posts.
Having denied the claims shortly after Rooney's allegation on Wednesday, Vardy has now said that she will be keeping quiet about the situation until it is dealt with "properly."
"On a more serious note I've been inundated with messages from everyone but I'm not saying anything more until we've finished looking into this situation properly," Vardy tweeted.

In a previous tweet, Vardy refuted claims made by reality TV star Danielle Lloyd - the wife of footballer Jamie O'Hara - who waded into the row with an appearance on ITV's This Morning.
"Danielle Lloyd making false claims on @thismorning that we have had 'similar run-ins' is utter b******s. She is just fuming that I ‘didn’t get Jamie recruiting’ for her like she asked me to..." Vardy said.

Vardy was at the centre of drama on social media on Wednesday when Rooney posted a message saying she had spent months trying to work out who was sharing stories about her, only to say she thinks it was the account belonging to Vardy.
She wrote: "For a few years now someone who I trusted to follow me on my personal Instagram account has been consistently informing The SUN newspaper of my private posts and stories.
"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."
Rooney said she blocked everyone apart from an Instagram page belonging to Vardy from seeing her Instagram stories and over the "past five months I have posted a series of false stories to see if they made their way into the Sun newspaper".

She said stories she had falsified about "gender selection in Mexico, and the story about returning to TV, and then the latest story about the basement flooding in my new house", had all made it into the newspaper.
"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," she wrote.
"I have saved and screenshotted all the original stories which clearly show just one person has viewed them. It's ... Rebekah Vardy's account."
Denying the allegations, former I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! star Vardy replied to Rooney: "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 & just this week I found I was following people I didn't know and have never followed myself."
She added: "I'm not being funny but I don't need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?"
Vardy, who is pregnant with her fifth child, said she was "so upset" that Rooney had made the accusation and she was "disgusted that I'm even having to deny this".
"You should have called me the first time this happened," she told Rooney.
Rooney's spokesman said in a statement on Wednesday: "It is irrefutable that the leaks came from one account, and one account only."
According to various reports, Vardy is believed to have hired forensic IT experts to prove her innocence.
