Coleen Rooney has told how she felt ‘hurt and ashamed’ when she learned that her husband Wayne had used prostitutes at a Liverpool massage parlour.

Speaking for the first time about the incident, which took place in 2002 when the former England captain was 16, she also described it as a ‘horrible dream’ and admitted she was unable to decide whether her relationship had a future.

Mrs Rooney also told how they had ‘screaming matches’ over his infidelity at the brothel in Liverpool where he had sex with a 37-year-old named Gina McCarrick and a 48-year-old grandmother.

Writing candidly in her autobiography, My Account, Mrs Rooney, 37, recalled the moment he confessed to her.

She said: ‘The full story was that when he was sixteen, Wayne had visited prostitutes in a Liverpool massage parlour. When Wayne sat me down and told me it was true and that the story was about to break in the national press I was confused and hurt. I couldn’t even speak to him.

‘More than that, I felt ashamed.’

Ms Rooney, 37, still a teenager then, told how she agonised over what others would think of Wayne’s demeanour.

‘Everyone knew, and everyone seemed to have an opinion. I sat with it all swirling around me like some horrible dream, unable to decide what was best or what I wanted.

‘A voice inside me told me not to do anything rash and not to make a decision in the midst of my anger.

‘Dealing with that kind of thing was heart-breaking enough, but I was eighteen –years-old. I was upset and confused, not knowing what to think or how others might react.

‘I wasn’t sure what I felt about Wayne anymore. Also, I knew my family’s instinct would be to protect me, and whatever way you spun it, this was not a good look.’

Mrs Rooney, who now has four sons with Wayne, decided to hold a summit with him and hear his side of the story. She reveals how they had a secret meeting at her auntie’s home in Liverpool where he admitted that the details were true, though insisted that some of the revelations were ‘fabricated.’

The couple also went on a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach where they tried to live some ‘normality’ – wearing hats and putting their collars up so they were not recognised as they discussed their future.

After some weeks, Mrs Rooney decided to accept Wayne’s apology.

She said: ‘He knew how bad this was, how wrong. He looked down at the floor as he told me how devastated he felt having put me in that situation.

‘I was still fuming, of course, and there were definitely a few screaming matches in the days to come, In the end though, I accepted that this had happened a long time ago and that we were stronger now, more committed.

‘We weren’t the kids we were back then, Wayne was no longer the cocky lad trying to impress his mates. If I’d found out he was having an affair or he’d told me in love with someone else, I couldn’t have gotten over it, but that wasn’t the case.’

Mrs Rooney also admits that her 38-year-old husband’s behaviour ‘tested’ her for years to come – often when he has been drinking alcohol.

She says that booze has a ‘lot to answer for, and confessed that when Wayne is troubled he will go out and get drunk and make things worse.

‘I couldn’t have known it then, but I’d be tested like this again in the future, more than once. I say the same thing now as I did back then. If you’re dealing with something stupid done in the heat of the moment involving alcohol, it might be fixable.

‘If love, emotions and ongoing deception are involved then it’s a different story.

‘Alcohol has a lot to answer for; as far as Wayne is concerned, it’s often been his downfall. Often, when something is bothering Wayne, he bottles it up.

‘Instead of coming out with the thing that is bothering him, relieving himself of the burden, he pushes it down. Then, sometimes, he’ll go off on one, behaving in a way that makes everything worse.’

Mrs Rooney also admitted that Wayne – now manager of Birmingham City football club – at times hasn’t been able to ‘control his drinking.’ She reveals how he has ‘binges’

The couple, who have four children – Kai, 14, Klay, ten, Kit, seven, and Cass, five – got together when they were teenagers after Wayne repeatedly asked the now WAG out.

Eventually she agreed and they went to see an Austin Powers movie and ate a McDonalds afterwards.

They got engaged in October 2003 when Rooney proposed at an Esso petrol station while they were on their way for a meal at a Chinese restaurant.

He gave her an emerald cut ring and they decided to instead go to Mrs Rooney’s parents Colette and Tony’s house.

There, they celebrated with a bottle of champagne and Colette’s corned-beef hash – and she had lit some candles for the happy couple too.

The Rooneys wed in the summer of 2008 in an idyllic ceremony in Italy and in 2009, they welcomed their first son, Kai following a miscarriage some months before.

Mrs Rooney told how she lost the baby at ten weeks in late 2008. She told how doctors dealt her and Wayne the bad news after she started bleeding.

She said of the miscarriage: ‘It’s a strange thing to be feeling all that excitement and joy, only to have it taken away so fast – a horrible experience which knocked Wayne for six too.

‘Back at home that night, he cried. He’d been desperate to be a dad and I could see on his face how wrecked he was with the loss.

‘It’s awful,’ he said. ‘I know you’ve been through such a terrible experience but it’s hard for me as well.’

‘I think he just had to voice his feelings, which wasn’t something he did all that often. It stayed with him for quite a while afterwards, probably right up until I got pregnant again.’

Last month Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story dropped on Disney+ last month giving the inside tale of what exactly happened between warring WAGS Coleen and Rebekah Vardy.

Rebekah had taken Coleen to High Court for Libel after Coleen claimed in October 2019 that stories about her were being leaked to the Press from Rebekah’s social media account.  

Coleen had said she felt compelled to make the show – which saw her being paid millions – to explain the situation ‘in her own words’ following the famous Wagatha Christie trial. 

A judge had ruled in Coleen’s favour after Rebekah sued her for libel and throughout the much-watched show she revealed how she managed to win the case and uncover Rebekah’s deception in a two-year solo investigation. 

Her autobiography, which is released today, will also delve into the trial, adding that she hopes it will ‘tell her side of the story’. 

Publisher Penguin states: ‘Here, she recounts how she first suspected someone was betraying her trust (and how devastated it left her), and then the meticulous steps she took to identify, trap and finally reveal to the world her suspect.

‘With the consequences playing out around the world and Coleen dragged unwillingly into a devastating court case whose outcome was far from certain, only now can she candidly give us her side of the story.’

Coleen added in the press release: ‘It was the biggest thing that had ever happened to me, and like nothing I’d ever experienced.

‘Looking back on it now, it still amazes me how inflated it all got, how ridiculous, how serious. That’s why I need to tell what happened in full.’

Elsewhere in the explosive book, Coleen reveals how her 2008 miscarriage left Wayne ‘wrecked’ as she revealed he cried as they learned they lost their first baby at ten weeks.

In fact, she was so distraught that she feared that she may not ever become a mother.

The WAG told how the couple were thrilled when they learned she was pregnant a few months after their wedding in 2008.

However, their joy quickly turned to heartache when Mrs Rooney discovered she was bleeding so they dashed to the hospital to find that initially the baby was okay.

‘We were both over the moon when I discovered I was pregnant in late 2008,’ she says in her autobiography, My Account.

‘That was until I started bleeding one morning at about ten weeks. After an examination at the hospital, doctors told us there was a heartbeat but the baby was smaller than it should have been at ten weeks. I went home feeling relieved.’

However, later that day Mrs Rooney says that she was bleeding again so returned to the hospital where doctors told her that she was miscarrying, saying: ‘Of course, we were both devastated by the news.’

Mrs Rooney also said she went home feeling ‘shaken up and hollow.’

But it also affected Wayne, who had been longing to be a father, so much that when they got home to their Cheshire mansion, he wept.

Mrs Rooney added: ‘It’s a strange thing to be feeling all that excitement and joy, only to have it taken away so fast – a horrible experience which knocked Wayne for six too.

‘Back at home that night, he cried. He’d been desperate to be a dad and I could see on his face how wrecked he was with the loss.

Mrs Rooney said that she struggled to know how to feel about her miscarriage but that she was concerned she may not ever be a mother – especially because, she says her own mother Colette struggled to get pregnant.

She writes in her book: ‘This had been my first pregnancy and it had gone wrong, I couldn’t help wondering what this meant – was I going to be one of those unlucky women who couldn’t carry a baby, who couldn’t have kids?

‘I thought about my mum, although she never miscarried, she’s really struggled with getting pregnant – it took her years and she went through a lot of fertility treatment.’

A few months later, the Rooneys discovered that they were expecting their son Kai, now 14. She says of finding out she was pregnant again: ‘That wonderful news lifted up back up again.’

Coleen has also written about the time she secretly flew home from the 2006 World Cup in Germany to get her hair extensions done after they fell out.

After meeting up with her fellow WAGs including Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole in the town of Baden Baden, she was worried that her hair was starting to look like a ‘straggly mop’ so desperately tried to find a hairdresser nearby.

After failing to do so, Mrs Rooney decided that the only option was to jet back to Liverpool to have the extensions re-done.

Revealing the secret trip home as husband Wayne played for England, she said in her book, My Account: ‘For a big occasion like the World Cup a girl has to look her best, so before flying out for the tournament, I’d had new hair extensions put in. Now, I’m not generally high maintenance, day to day.

‘Now, I’d had extensions plenty of times before, but these were a bit of a faff because my usual hairdresser couldn’t do them and I’d had to find an alternative.

Hair disaster: After meeting up with her fellow WAGs including Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole, she was worried that her hair was starting to look like a ‘straggly mop’ 

‘Not being great with make-up, my thinking was, at least my hair will look half decent while I’m there. Suffice to say, it didn’t go well. Almost as soon as I arrived in Germany, the hair pieces, sewn-in wefts of hair, started to fall out.

‘Desperate to fix things, I called everywhere, trying to find a hairdresser who could work with that kind of extension but no luck.

‘With no-one able to do it, all these terrible thoughts started going through my mind. With the world watching, I was about to go from having this lush long hair to a short straggly mop within a day. By then they were literally hanging out of my head, and I was bedside myself.’

Mrs Rooney, who was just 20 at the time, says she had no choice but to return home where Wayne’s cousin was able to sew the hair extensions back in.

She added: ‘In the end, I got a flight home to get my bloody hair done – leaving my mum, Claire and my brother in Germany. I know it sounds diva-isa and dramatic, but I got in such a flap about it; flying back to get it sorted seemed like the only way.

‘And we’re not talking private jet or anything extravagant like that; it was Ryanair all the way. When I got off the plane, I dashed straight home, where Wayne’s cousin Leanne, who did the extensions, met me. I sat down, she sewed my extensions back in, and I flew back to Germany on the next available flight. Panic over.

‘I never told anyone at the time – people must have wondered where the hell I’d disappeared to – but now you know.’
