Becky Vardy vs Annie Kilner; This is the new Premier League WAG battle. The wife of Jamie Vardy attacked Kyle Walker’s wife, following her behaviour around the allegations that her husband flashed and kissed another woman. Becky, 41, called Annie, 30, a “doormat” and accused her of being obsessed with her.
It all started a few days ago when it was announced that Kyle Walker is under investigation by Chesire Police, over allegations that he indecently exposed himself in a Winslow bar, following Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Newcastle United.
CCTV footage was leaked and started circulating on social media. Police were made aware of it and started investigating the incident, stating that “enquiries are in early stages and no arrests have been made at this time.”
Kyle Walker’s wife, Annie, was furious, as the video shows him exposing himself to and then kissing a woman in that bar. Annie Kilner is said to have told friends that she is deeply disturbed with her husband, using way more colourful language.
When the story was made public, an angry Annie Kilner wrote on Instagram: “I think it’s important to remember that no matter how good you are to people, it won’t make them good to you.”
A few minutes later, Backy Vardy shared an Instagram story reading “The gift that keeps on giving.”
Many suggested that the message was geared towards Kyle Walker’s wife, with whom Becky was once very close and the two were seen together in Russia when their husbands played in the 2018 World Cup, leading England to the semi-finals.
There were more than a few comments on social media connecting Becky Vardy’s post with the Kyle Walker case. A few hours later she appeared upset about it.
“Waking up this morning to my name being associated with this delightful story in yet another opportunity to attack me! Funny though isn’t it that it’s my name she wants to use rather than the people actually laughing at her for being a doormat? Art of deflection to a T… great at playing the victim is our Annie,” wrote Becky Verdy.
She also said that Kyle Walker’s wife is obsessed with her “I think she needs to focus on what’s going on in her own life instead of trying to attack me by bringing me into her drama. Believe me had it been about her I would have tagged her! She’s obsessed… I’m literally tired of being nice to people with short memories. I’ve stayed silent while she’s bashed me in the media and made lies up about me in her little community like a group of playground bullies! Just leave me alone.”
The story was accompanied by Michael Jackson’s smooth criminal, which features the lyrics “Annie, are you OK”?
Annie did not directly answer, but people who know her have spoken to tabloid media, saying that Annie isn’t obsessed. On the contrary, she was never particularly fond of Becky Vardy and is now extremely irritated that her name was drugged through the mud.
Before the beef with Kyle Walker’s wife commenced, Vardy had a strong argument with the wife of Wayne Rooney, Coleen, that ended up being settled in court. Becky was accused of leaking fake stories about Coleen Rooney in 2019 and she replied by suing Rooney for libel.
Vardy lost the trial and was ordered to cover 90% of Rooney’s costs, which added up to nearly £1.5m.
Annie Kilner and Becky Vardy are two of the highest-profile Premier League WAGs. It is not the first time that Kyle Walker has been on the tabloid front pages, infuriating his wife.
Back in 2019, when Kyle and his then-girlfriend were already together for 11 years, it was revealed that he has a brief affair with a reality TV star. A year later, Kyle (who has three children with Annie) fathered a child with another woman.
Kyle and Annie split up for a while, but in 2021 they were married.
