Coleen Rooney has stayed by husband Wayne Rooney ‘s side throughout his various public cheating and drinking scandals.
However, Coleen, 35, who shares four sons with childhood sweetheart Wayne has spoken out on his infidelities in the trailer for new Amazon prime documentary ‘Rooney’.
The Liverpudlian WAG is seen addressing her husband’s past in the trailer which showcases the footballing star’s life on and off the pitch as she deems his behaviour ‘unacceptable’.
Coleen says in the footage: “I knew groups Wayne was hanging around with – together with alcohol – not good. I forgive him but it wasn’t acceptable.”
Wayne, also 35, then tells how he is still dealing with the consequences of the scandal, adding: “People still look at me in a different way.
“For me, it’s important that people remember me for who I am rather than what I’ve done.”
Clips featuring in the trailer show video from the pair’s wedding day as well as them at home with their kids.
Coleen has stuck by Wayne through thick and thin and she has overlooked his numerous indiscretions and infidelities to stand with him.
Rooney, who has known Coleen since they met in secondary school aged 12, started visiting prostitutes at the age of 16.
He paid £140 to sleep with Charlotte Glover, then 21, and left her with an autograph as a souvenir.
A month later, he had sex with Gina McCarrick, then 37, at a £45-a-time brothel in Liverpool, which he visited 10 times and where he was caught on CCTV. He also had sex there with a 48-year-old grandmother known as “Auld Slapper” who wore a rubber catsuit.
The scandal came out in July 2004, devastating Coleen, who had stayed true to her childhood sweetheart.
In her autobiography, she revealed the reason she’d forgiven him was that he’d slept with the prostitutes before their relationship became serious.
“The truth is, and I’ve never said this before, at that time in our relationship I’d never even slept with Wayne,” she said.
“I was only 16 and we weren’t having that kind of relationship at that stage. We used to meet at the chippy or the cinema.”
Wayne later issued an apology, saying: “Foolish as it now seems I did on occasions visit massage parlours and prostitutes. I now regret it deeply and hope people may understand that it was the sort of mistake you make when you are young and stupid. It was at a time when I was very young and immature.”
Coleen managed to overlook Wayne’s past with sex workers – despite the national outcry – and went on to marry him in 2008.
But in September 2010, the Sunday Mirror exclusively revealed that Wayne had been spending family money on secret hotel sessions with Jenny Thompson while Coleen was pregnant with their first son, Kai, in 2009.
He had seven separate trysts with Jennifer, who later went on to star in Ex On The Beach, and would take her out on date nights in public places.
Their last meeting was in October 2009, a month before Coleen gave birth.
In 2017, Jenny claimed that Rooney wasn’t up to much in the bedroom.
“I mean he was alright, nothing special. Pretty average,” she said of his lovemaking skills.
After it emerged that Wayne had cheated, Coleen moved herself and Kai out of the family home and stayed with her parents.
But once Wayne returned from the World Cup campaign, the two made up after Wayne promised there were no more skeletons in his closet.
Shortly after news got out that Wayne had been Pretty Woman-ing Jennifer Thompson, it then emerged that he’d had a threesome with Jenny and another prostitute, Helen Wood.

Both escorts apologised to Coleen through the press and their parents spoke of their disappointment over their daughters’ career choices.
Helen claimed to the Sunday Mirror that Wayne had regretted the threeway as soon as it was over.
“Why the hell did I do that?” he reportedly asked Helen and Jenny while sitting on the hotel bed in a bath robe.
“He said, ‘I feel really s**t already – I’m begging you two not to say anything. It will ruin my marriage if it gets out. Having a kid means everything to me,'” Helen claimed he said.
In the early hours of September 1 2017, Rooney was arrested and charged with drink-driving after being pulled over by officers following a night out.
He was driving party girl Laura Simpson’s VW Beetle through Wilmslow, Cheshire, when he was stopped by police and taken to a station for questioning.
Coleen, who was pregnant with her and Wayne’s fourth child Cass, was on holiday in Majorca at the time of the arrest, and rang Laura and demanded she told the truth about her night with Rooney.
“She asked me to tell her what happened,” Laura told the Sun On Sunday.
“She seemed unhappy with the fact that we had left a nightclub in a cab together to go to my car.”
Laura added that she apologised to Coleen but insisted nothing happened between the pair.
Coleen flew home to the couple’s multimillion-pound Cheshire home for a furious showdown with her husband, reportedly yelling at him: “How could you do this to me while I’m pregnant? How could you be so stupid?”
The WAG later forgave Wayne in an emotional public statement, admitting that she had come close to ending their relationship.
They rebuilt their marriage with child-free cinema dates and Coleen even agreed to move the family to the States so Wayne – who was found guilty of drink-driving and banned from the roads for two years – could play for DC United in Washington.
On the Super Bowl weekend in February 2019, Wayne was spotted partying into the night with pretty barmaid Vicki Rosiek in Florida’s Clearwater Beach, while Coleen was at home 900 miles away with their kids.
Wayne started drinking at 4.20pm and was still going at 2.30am, downing shots with Vicki after getting a lift with her to a different bar.
In August 2019, Wayne found himself pictured in a hotel lobby in Vancouver, following a mystery brunette into the lift.
The pictures sparked yet more speculation about the state of his marriage to Coleen, especially as it came amid reports he’d spent seven hours boozing with his teammates the night before.
Coleen was in the UK staying with her parents while Wayne partied the night away with his Washington DC team, ending up walking through the hotel at 5.36am a few steps behind the woman.
Coleen was seen hours after the story broke looking furious as she made a phone call, and reportedly insisted he fly straight home to explain himself.
Rooney is set to debut on Amazon Prime in early 2022.
