As Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen has said she has forgiven him for his indiscretions during their 19 years together, Brinkwire has taken a look at the footballing power couple’s romance
Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen Rooney have appeared in new Amazon documentary Rooney, where Coleen opened up about the scandals that have rocked their marriages over the years.
In a trailer for the show, Coleen said that she has forgiven Wayne for his behaviour over the years but it “wasn’t acceptable”.
Since tying the knot in 2008, the couple has often hit headlines, as they’ve been plagued with Wayne’s cheating scandals.
In 2004, Wayne was reported to have paid for sex with a number of sex workers while dating Coleen, and addressing the scandals in the trailer, he said: “What people don’t understand is you’re 17 years of age, there’s gonna be mistakes made.”
Earlier this year, the football star was caught in another controversy, after photos and videos emerged on social media showing Rooney fast asleep on a chair with a scantily clad woman on a bed in the background.
Despite the photos, there has been no suggestion that Rooney did anything wrong.
Wayne, 35, met two women in a Chinawhite nightclub earlier but sources claim no sexual contact was shared between any of the women when they arrived back at the hotel.
As their marriage continues to be the centre of media speculation, Brinkwire has taken a look inside their turbulent relationship over the years.
Wayne Rooney and Coleen first met when they were only 12 years old and started dating officially at the age of 16 when they both left school.
A year later, a young Rooney signed to Everton and his career went from strength to strength. Coleen stood beside him throughout and the couple later married in 2008.
The couple have always been fairly vocal about their marriage and the love they have for one another.
Coleen frequently takes to Instagram to express her love for the football player too.
Earlier this year, Coleen wished her husband a happy anniversary and posted a throwback photo of the pair online.
Captioning the snap she wrote: “Loved you then, love you now. Happy Valentines Day @waynerooney (Mexico 2003).”
Wayne and his footballer’s wife Coleen welcomed their first child, Kai Rooney, in November 2009, a year after their marriage.
Their Second child, Klay Anthony Rooney, was born in May 2013 and their third son, Kit Rooney, arrived. Brinkwire presents summary news.
