Wayne Rooney was an exceptional soccer player in his career, unfortunately he was not an exceptional husband to his longtime wife and childhood sweetheart Coleen Rooney. The former DC United midfielder now coach of Derby County has had a history of incidents while intoxicated and adultery scandals during the course of his career.
Rooney at one point, early in his career, it was reported by the Sunday Mirror that he had paid £140 to have sexual relations with prostitute Charlotte Glover. Later in the month it was reported that Rooney had been with Gina McCarrick, at a brothel in Liverpool. In one of the most embarrassing incidents for the couple it was reported by the Mirror that Rooney had engaged in further adultery with known brothel worker Patricia Tierney, who at the time was 48 in 2004, and was known for wearing a rubber catsuit.
Now in a new documentary about the life of the former England captain, wife Coleen Rooney has forgiven her husband of 13-years, but still believes his antics were "(not) acceptable". Here is what Coleen has had to deal with over the years with husband Wayne.
Coleen Rooney forgives Wayne Rooney for adultery antics over the years
35-year-old Coleen admits in the new Amazon Prime documentary that “I knew groups Wayne was hanging around. Together with alcohol...not good...I forgive him, but it wasn't acceptable." Aside from the difficult and embarrassing moments where Wayne was caught “with his pants down”, Coleen has also had to deal with various incidents where Wayne had been drinking heavily and led to embarrassing behavior.
One such incident was while playing for DC United, Wayne Rooney had shown up to a US airport in a drunken state where he set off a security alarm and was arrested.
The couple met when both were 12 years old and began a romantic relationship when both were just 16, While Coleen admits it has been hard to deal with so many incidents of adultery and drunken behavior over the years, she states why she has stood by her husband and father of her four children, "It's my decision …. do I love Wayne … yes I do. If I didn't then I wouldn't be trying to make it work. I know I would be fine on my own, with just me and my children, but I don't want to live like that, I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family, because that’s what I want to do."
Rooney himself in the documentary states, "For me it's important that people remember me for who I am rather than what I've done."
