Wayne Rooney And Coleen In ‘Crisis’: Emergency Holiday And Bentley May Save Love

by | 21st, March 2011

ARE Wayne Rooney and Coleen Rooney heading for separate agents? Rooney’s £200,000-a-week wage can be divided equally, almost without a calculator, but what about the brand? While CW was never quite VB (Victoria and David’s Beckham’s love on a monogrammed towel), adverts for perfumes and supermarket ownbrand fashions, flushing it away down the WC seems rash.

Anyhow, the source of the story is the Mirror, which leads with news that “Rooney’s marriage in crisis”.

Readers learn:

Fed-up Coleen Rooney has flown her family out on a £100,000 Caribbean holiday away from the pressure of her strained marriage to Wayne.

Is this a trial to see if she can live on £100,000-a-week?

Coleen and the couple’s 16-month-old son Kai have been joined on the two-week trip by her mother Colette, father Tony, her brother Anthony and sister Rosie. Meanwhile striker Wayne is 4,000 miles away back home at the couple’s sprawling mansion in Cheshire during a critical phase of Manchester United’s season.

So. She’s gone on holiday – which other than shopping seems to be her thing – allowing Wayne to focus on football? How is this a looming separation, then?

Will Payne says “the couple’s once-idyllic marriage remains mired in crisis and recrimination”.


The mounting friction, combined with the mistrust Coleen harbours for her husband, means their relationship has become “virtually paralysed”, ­sources say. And Coleen, who was forging her own ­successful career, has now retreated from public life.

Why not name the source? The news that Coleen has “retreated from, public life” contains a whiff of royal scented candle. But the talk of a split seems rash and based on unconfirmed opinion.

A “friend” says:

Poor Coleen feels people are sniggering about her behind her back everywhere she goes. She hates going out now. She used to be so proud of being Wayne’s wife, but she thinks people are ridiculing her and that’s a ­ terrible feeling to have. She still cries ­ every time she sees either of the ­prostitutes in the ­magazines and the papers.”

What started as sensation is turning into a story of Coleen’s victimhood.

She has bought a new Bentley and this holiday will have cost the best part of £100,000,” said a source. “But after all he’s put her through, that’s the least she and her family ­deserve.”

It is. Just as it was last December, when the Mirror wrote:

Wayne Rooney is ¬treating wife Coleen and her family to a £30,000 cruise as he tries to rebuild trust after his cheating.

Never mind the stories of prostitute and sex, Coleen, just think of the air miles…

In a Sunday Mirror exclusive, 37-year-old brunette Gina McCarrick, dressed in her favoured cowgirl outfit, said: 'Wayne didn't turn me on at all. He was ugly. He had a face like a smacked arse.' Rooney later confessed to having visted the den around 10 times.
