At the time, Coleen had been in Barbados with her younger brothers when Rosie’s condition deteriorated.
A statement from the family read: “Sadly our special angel Rosie, our much-loved daughter and sister, went to Heaven at 2.50 this morning at home where she was surrounded by her loving family.”
What else has Coleen been up to?
The poignant family milestone comes after a difficult year for the star.
The pair came to blows after Coleen accused Rebekah of leaking personal stories about her to the media.
During a preliminary hearing, the 34-year-old claimed she had “reasonable grounds” to suspect Rebekah or those with access to her social media of breaching her trust.
However, Rebekah’s lawyers argued that the meaning of Coleen’s posts state that she had consistently and repeatedly betrayed her trust over several years.
Meanwhile, Rebekah has fiercely denied Coleen’s accusations.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain in September, Becky said: “We tried to sort things out amicably but it didn’t work.”
She added: “I need to clear my name, I want to clear my name. And I will do whatever it takes, and I hope it’s going to be resolved soon.”
