After a week of the Wags taking the witness box at London‘s High Court, it has been reported that the couple are planning to move across the pond regardless of how the trial ends.
A source told The Sun that Vardy is ‘keen’ to get out of the UK ‘as fast as possible’ after the fallout of her ‘disaster’ of a libel trial.
But a spokesman for Rebekah Vardy told MailOnline: ‘The story in The Sun newspaper claiming the Vardy family are planning to move to the United States is categorically untrue.’
Vardy and Coleen Rooney have been battling it out in the High Court this week after Coleen publicly accused Rebekah of leaking stories about her to the Sun newspaper after carrying out a social media sting.

The pair are connected through their footballing husbands, who have been spotted by their side in court, with Wayne giving evidence and telling the judge he was told by then England manager Roy Hodgson to ask Jamie to tell Rebekah to ‘tone down’ her media appearances during the Euro 2016 tournament.
And while Wayne has been seen with Coleen throughout the trial, Jamie only joined his wife on the last day of evidence, where he branded Rooney’s claims ‘nonsense’ via a statement on the steps of the court.
According to The Sun, a source said: ‘She’s keen to be out of the country as fast as possible. The trial has been a total disaster, and really miserable for the family. She’s mortified.
‘They’ve been planning an American move for a while behind the scenes, and now it would be the perfect escape after everything that has gone on. She wants out fast.
‘Win or lose she comes out of this dreadfully and it’s all clearly been a terrible mistake.’
Vardy reportedly ‘never wants to be part of the British Wag scene again’.
According to The Sun , a source said: ‘She’s keen to be out of the country as fast as possible. The trial has been a total disaster, and really miserable for the family. She’s mortified. ‘They’ve been planning an American move for a while behind the scenes, and now it would be the perfect escape after everything that has gone on.

The source also said that Jamie, who has reportedly invested in Rochester NY FC, a New York football club, could see him move to America as it ‘makes practical sense’.
They added that Wayne Rooney feels Jamie ‘bottled it’ by not taking to the witness stand and saying what he wanted to say under oath.
‘That way he could have been cross-examined like Wayne was on the truth of what he was saying,’ the source said.
‘Instead he just said whatever he wanted outside court and disappeared with Becky — who the court was later told felt unwell.’
Jamie Vardy left court early with his wife Rebekah today, shortly after accusing Wayne Rooney of ‘talking nonsense’ at the bombshell Wagatha Christie libel trial.
In a witness statement for the £3million High Court showdown, former England captain Rooney claimed he was asked by a member of Football Association staff to take Vardy to task over Rebekah’s media antics during the Euro 2016 football tournament.
The source added that Wayne Rooney (pictured with his wife Coleen outside court on Tuesday) feels Jamie ‘bottled it’ by not taking to the witness stand and saying what he wanted to say under oath.
Giving evidence today, Rooney said he was pulled aside by then England manager Roy Hodgson and his assistant Gary Neville and asked to raise the ‘awkward’ issue with Vardy over concerns that Rebekah was ‘causing problems and distractions’ for the team in France.
However, Vardy claimed that the conversation with him never happened and sensationally accused Rooney of talking ‘nonsense’ this afternoon.
A source close to Rooney told MailOnline: ‘Jamie must have been aware of what Wayne was going to say weeks ago when his wife received all witness statements from Coleen’s side.
‘If he really believed what Wayne swore was not true, he should have had the guts to stand up in court and say so on oath as Wayne did.
‘Instead he and Becky left court early and he chose to make his statement outside where he couldn’t be held to account for it.’
Former England captain Wayne, 36, had told the High Court he was ordered by then manager Roy Hodgson during the 2016 Euros to speak to his fellow striker about Rebekah’s media activities and ask her to ‘calm down.’
Rebekah, 40, who wrote a diary column for The Sun during the competition, said in court that the conversation never took place, but her husband, Leicester City striker Jamie 35, has not given evidence in the case.
Instead, he sat at his wife’s side yesterday and stared daggers at Wayne from the well of the court, especially when the former Manchester United star discussed the disputed conversation in the games room of the England camp.
After the mid-afternoon break, the Vardys left the court building early, shortly after Rebekah’s publicist issued Jamie’s sensational statement through a news agency, accusing Wayne of ‘talking nonsense’ and being ‘confused’.
‘Wayne is talking nonsense,’ said the statement.
‘He must be confused because he never spoke to me about issues concerning Becky’s media work at Euro 2016. There was nothing to speak about, I know this because I discuss everything with Becky.’
