More, voluntary media attention unlikely to help Rebekah Vardy’s post-trial emotional exhaustion

With Rebekah Vardy accusing Coleen Rooney of “weaponising” her fan base during their barbed legal battle, I can’t help but feel that Vardy is the one trying to do the weaponising, by raising concerns about her poor “mental wellbeing” in her first interview since the trial.

At the risk of sounding callous, I need to make it clear I am not saying Vardy is crying wolf about her mental health issues. Many people experience poor mental health — and in many ways — so I have no doubt that the widely reported, no-holds-barred libel case that Vardy lost against Rooney last week would inevitably take a toll on anyone’s psychological welfare.
