Wayne Rooney’s many scandals – as Coleen Rooney keeps forgiving him
Wayne Rooney is no stranger to controversy – he's lived half his life in the spotlight thanks to his immense footballing talent, but his private life has always overshadowed his public one.
But he's always had loyal wife Coleen Rooney sticking by him through thick and thin.
Since they first started dating aged 16 after four years of friendship, she has overlooked his numerous indiscretions and infidelities to stand with him.
In 2017, Wayne faced losing half of his £80million fortune thanks to being caught drink-driving another woman's car while pregnant Coleen was at home.
A move to the States seemed to put their marriage back on track after Coleen publicly forgave him – but now he's been pictured getting into a hotel lift with a mystery brunette, will Wayne finally get the red card?
Here's what she's put up with in the last 17 years of their relationship.
2002: Wayne romps with three prostitutes – including rubber-suited granny 'Auld Slapper'
Rooney, who had known Coleen since they met in secondary school aged 12, started visiting prostitutes at the age of 16.
He paid £140 to sleep with Charlotte Glover, then 21, and left her with an autograph as a souvenir.
A month later, he had sex with Gina McCarrick, then 37, at a £45-a-time brothel in Liverpool, which he visited 10 times and where he was caught on CCTV. He also had sex there with a 48-year-old grandmother known as "Auld Slapper" who wore a rubber catsuit.
The scandal came out in July 2004, devastating Coleen, who had stayed true to her childhood sweetheart.
But, in her autobiography, she revealed the reason she'd forgiven him was because he'd slept with the prostitutes before their relationship became serious.
"The truth is, and I've never said this before, at that time in our relationship I'd never even slept with Wayne," she said.
"I was only 16 and we weren't having that kind of relationship at that stage. We used to meet at the chippy or the cinema."
Wayne later issued an apology, saying: "Foolish as it now seems I did on occasions visit massage parlours and prostitutes. I now regret it deeply and hope people may understand that it was the sort of mistake you make when you are young and stupid. It was at a time when I was very young and immature."
September 2010: Wayne cheats with £1,000-a-night prostitute Jennifer Thompson
Coleen managed to overlook Wayne's past with sex workers – despite the national outcry – and went on to marry him in 2008.
But in September 2010, the Sunday Mirror exclusively revealed that Wayne had been spending family money on secret hotel sessions with Jenny Thompson while Coleen was pregnant with their first son, Kai, in 2009.
He had seven separate trysts with Jennifer, who later went on to star in Ex On The Beach, and would take her out on date nights in public places.
Their last meeting was in October 2009, a month before Coleen gave birth.
In 2017, Jenny revealed that Rooney wasn't up to much in the bedroom.
"I mean he was alright, nothing special. Pretty average," she said of his lovemaking skills.
After it emerged that Wayne had cheated, Coleen moved herself and Kai out of the family home and stayed with her parents.
But once Wayne returned from the World Cup campaign, the two made up after Wayne promised there were no more skeletons in his closet.
The threesome news emerges
Shortly after news got out that Wayne had been Pretty Woman-ing Jennifer Thompson, it then emerged that he'd had a threesome with Jenny and another prostitute, Helen Wood.
Both escorts apologised to Coleen through the press and their parents spoke of their disappointment over their daughters' career choices.
Helen claimed to the Sunday Mirror that Wayne had regretted the threeway as soon as it was over.
"Why the hell did I do that?" he reportedly asked Helen and Jenny while sitting on the hotel bed in a bath robe.
"He said, 'I feel really s**t already – I'm begging you two not to say anything. It will ruin my marriage if it gets out. Having a kid means everything to me,'" Helen claimed he said.
September 2017: Wayne gets caught drink-driving while with another woman
In the early hours of September 1 2017, Rooney was arrested and charged with drink-driving after being pulled over by officers following a night out.
He was driving party girl Laura Simpson's VW Beetle through Wilmslow, Cheshire, when he was stopped by police and taken to a station for questioning.
Coleen, who was pregnant with her and Wayne's fourth child Cass, was on holiday in Majorca at the time of the arrest, and rang Laura and demanded she told the truth about her night with Rooney.
"She asked me to tell her what happened," Laura told the Sun On Sunday.
"She seemed unhappy with the fact that we had left a nightclub in a cab together to go to my car."
Laura added that she apologised to Coleen but insisted nothing happened between the pair.
Coleen flew home to the couple's multimillion-pound Cheshire home for a furious showdown with her husband, reportedly yelling at him: "How could you do this to me while I'm pregnant? How could you be so stupid?"
The WAG later forgave Wayne in an emotional public statement, admitting that she had come close to ending their relationship.
They rebuilt their marriage with child-free cinema dates and Coleen even agreed to move the family to the States so Wayne – who was found guilty of drink-driving and banned from the roads for two years – could play for DC United in Washington.
But it wasn't long before he started hitting the headlines for his tactics off the pitch once again…

Wayne started drinking at 4.20pm and was still going at 2.30am, downing shots with Vicki after getting a lift with her to a different bar.
Coleen's pals were furious with the "useless" Wayne, branding him "selfish" and inconsiderate of his wife's feelings after she moved away from her support network in the UK.
Given that the drink-driving scandal was supposed to be Wayne's last chance, many thought he'd finally be handed the red card by Coleen.
But more was to come.
