    Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen Rooney have seen most of their relationship detailed in public, thanks to the many scandals that have rocked it over the years.

    More recently, Coleen has been the focus of public interest thanks to her court battle with Rebekah Vardy, which is now set to be made into a television series and a stage show.

    But in 2004, Wayne – who celebrates his 37th birthday today (October 24) – was reported to have paid for sex with a number of sex workers while dating Coleen.

    Addressing the scandals in the couple's Prime Video documentary film, he said: "What people don’t understand is you’re 17 years of age, there’s gonna be mistakes made."

    Last 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 was 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.

    When did Wayne and Coleen first meet?

    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 in January 2016.

    Two years later the couple welcomed their fourth son Cass in February 2018.

    Talking to Great British Life in 2018 about motherhood, Coleen said: "You go through so many emotions with motherhood – it’s something you just cannot prepare for.

    "When I first fell pregnant with Kai it was a hugely exciting time, but like any mum, you have nerves, worries, and you need reassurance at every step.

    "These days there is so much support out there – family, groups, even things you can research online – but if I was to offer any sort of advice, it would be just to enjoy the whole thing."

    In 2016, Wayne also spoke openly about his parenting techniques. He told Good To know: "We just do things as we see fit and whatever we think is the best way.

    "There are a lot of things, in terms of the way we’ve been brought up, that have helped us out and we’ve tried to carry on setting those examples.

    "Coleen and I just try to be the best that we can be, and treat every day as a new day."

    Wayne's first cheating scandal

    In 2004, the Sunday Mirror revealed that a teenage Rooney paid £140 for sex with prostitute Charlotte Glover.

    That same year the England midfielder allegedly slept with Gina McCarrick at a £45-a-go brothel in Liverpool.

    Wayne visited the brothel 10 times, and was caught on CCTV walking inside the venue.

    During that time, Wayne reportedly slept with grandmother Patricia Tierney who claimed to have worn a rubber catsuit while getting intimate with the star and was known as the "Auld Slapper", according to the Sunday Mirror.

    In 2010, Helen Wood claimed Wayne had paid for a threesome with Jenny Thompson.

    Wayne said at the time: "It was the sort of mistake you make when you are young and stupid."

    Sleepy Wayne pics go viral

    Over the weekend, pictures of Wayne did the rounds on social media which has now lead to a criminal investigation.

    Rooney was pictured out in a hotel room after partying hard in a nightclub. The Derby County boss fell asleep and was posed with for pictures beside half-naked girls.

    One of the women posed in her underwear and took a pic beside the football icon, captioning the image: "Mooney Rooney".

    Despite this, there is nothing to suggest that the women were engaged in criminal activity.

    Since then his lawyers have claimed that the photos have been reported to the police, as it is believed that Rooney did not give his consent for the pictures to be taken.


    Coleen opened up about Wayne's behaviour when he was younger in the new documentary, saying: "I knew groups Wayne was hanging around. Together with alcohol…not good.

    "I forgive him but it wasn’t acceptable."

    Wayne added: "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."

    The Amazon Prime show will take a look at Wayne and Coleen's romance, as well as looking at his hugely successful footballing careers, which saw him become one of England's top players.

    David Beckham, Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand are among the stars who will appear on the show to speak about Wayne and his career.
