‘It’s not good for him to be unattended,’ Coleen says of her 14-year-married husband Wayne Rooney’s infidelity habit.

Wayne Rooney’s wife of 14 years, Coleen Rooney, has spoken up about her husband’s adultery and drinking habits, claiming it’s not a good thing for him to be unattended.

Coleen spoke candidly about the challenges they’ve encountered in their marriage in ‘Rooney,’ which will be aired on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, February 11, including Wayne’s legendary brothel visits and escort scandal.

Wayne, who was 18 at the time, paid £140 for sex with Charlotte Glover, a 21-year-old prostitute. He also slept with Gina McCarrick, aged 37, and Patricia Tierney, then 48, who was known as the ‘Auld Slapper’ and donned a catsuit.

‘I wouldn’t be standing here if I hadn’t forgiven him,’ Coleen says in the documentary as she reflects on their 20-year romance.

Wayne and Coleen began dating aged 16 and went on to marry in a lavish ceremony in Portofino in 2008.They are now parents to four sons – Kai, 12, Klay, eight, Kit, six, and Cass, 3.

‘I suppose when I was about 11 or 12 I knew I wanted to marry her, and I told that to her at the time,’ Wayne Rooney says in the documentary on their teenage romance. ‘When we grow up, we’ll get married, and you’ll have our children,’ I added. ‘Yeah, good one!’ she said, looking at me.

‘He’s a charmer,’ Coleen admits of her husband, ‘that’s how he won me over growing up.’ The more I answered no, the more he said, ‘I’ll get that date one day.’

‘I remember him hanging out near where I used to live, and every now and then you’d hear his mother shouting up and down the street, ‘Wayne.’

Coleen then recalls Wayne’s visit to a brothel in 2004, when images of his infamous romp with three prostitutes initially surfaced.

‘The first time, we were young, so there was a lot of squabbling,’ Coleen explained.

‘I knew Wayne was hanging out with folks that weren’t good for him. Lovely folks, but together, with alcohol, not so nice, as I warned him from the beginning.

‘I didn’t want him to quit being friends with them, but I also didn’t want him to hang out with them since they were in trouble.’

“Alcohol is a lot to blame and still is, up to this day with things that has happened recently. It’s not a good thing for Wayne to be unsupervised’.

Wayne admitted: ‘I put myself in the wrong place and when you’re in the wrong place and there’s alcohol involved you’re gonna make bad decisions and you’re going to have to suffer and deal with the consequences’.

‘That’s what happened, it doesn’t take away any of my love for Coleen, it happened. It was a wrong decision to make, I held my hands up and we worked through it.’

Coleen says she relied on the support of her family and her own instincts to help her through.

‘When you’re making those decisions you’ve got to focus on what you want and not other people because you have so many people saying different things to you. ‘Oh why is she getting back with him?”

‘Obviously I listen to the people that matter to me, my mum and dad always give me a positive outlook on things. There’s nothing that we can’t deal with and that’s my way in a situation – let’s sit down and see what we can do and can we make it work? And we have. We’re not the lovey-dovey type anyway, we like to have a laugh and we work well together.’

She adds that they also stayed together for their four boys:

‘That was part of it but also we still love each other. Hopefully he’s learnt and he doesn’t get himself into any of those horrible situations again. But it’s happened and I’ve got to live with it, if I couldn’t cope with living with it I would have ended the relationship.’

‘Life goes on and I’ve moved on. You’ve moved on. Not the behaviour, no. It’s not acceptable.

‘Forgiveness I’d say is different. It’s not acceptable what he’s done but it’s happened and that was a stage of life that we were in at the time. But we’ve moved on.

‘I forgive him but it wasn’t acceptable. If it comes up we talk about it like we are talking about it now. I haven’t got the anger I did at the time.’

She added: ‘I do think it’s amazing that we are where we are today. We’re lucky that we both had the strength and support of each other and the people around us to keep going. That’s something we’ve had to work hard at.
