Two prostitutes who reportedly had sex with Wayne Rooney have made public apologies on Sunday to the England footballer’s wife Coleen.
Jenny Thompson, 21, and Helen Wood, 23, both gave interviews to newspapers following allegations they had sex with the England star while his wife was pregnant.
The women spoke out after Rooney escaped a hostile reception from his former fans after being omitted from Manchester United’s side to face Everton on Saturday.
The couple have faced a week of torrid speculation and newspaper headlines following lurid claims about Rooney’s private life.
Speaking to News of the World, Thompson, who claimed that she regularly slept with Rooney, apologised to Coleen, mother of 10-month-old Kai, saying: “I’m very sorry for my part in this”.
“It’s a horrible thing to learn your husband has cheated on you. Particularly when you’re pregnant. I have so much sympathy for her.
“They have been together since they were so young but she is going to question everything now, their entire relationship,” Thompson said. Wood told the Sunday Mirror: “I wish this had never happened. I’m sorry for all the hurt that you’ve been put through. It was a mistake. I can’t apologise enough. I’m sorry.”
On Friday the Rooneys issued a joint statement pleading for privacy as they attempt to tackle their personal problems.
“The last six days have been extremely painful for us and for our families,” the statement said.
