Three women who had a wild weekend with Wayne Rooney have apologized for taking explicit photos while he was passed out. In addition to their apology, the trio has sold the copyright of the images to him for just £1.
Early on Sunday morning, photographs began to circulate that showed the former English star asleep in the chair of a hotel room. He was fully clothed and the women insisted that “nothing happened” with the married father of four, but it was still a bad look for Rooney.
In one image, a woman dressed in only a thong was pictured bent over aside the Derby County gaffer with the caption “Mooney Rooney.” He can be seen dozing upright in another photo captioned “Sleepy Wayne.”

The women, all 21, met with Rooney, 35, earlier in the night at the Chinawhite night club in Manchester. It was the first weekend that clubs in England were allowed to reopen since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and Rooney had himself a night.
As was to be expected for anyone except the intoxicated women who posted willy nilly to the internet, the photos went viral almost instantly. One of the three girls’ mother was cited as saying that her daughter was “mortified” when the photos began to circulate and that she was extremely apologetic.
Rooney releases a statement:
Rooney’s camp released a statement to The Mirror after the photos were handed over to the footballer:
“The three girls who took the photographs contacted Wayne’s lawyers and volunteered to hand over all pictures that were taken that night and the copyrights in them.
“They have also, at their own suggestion, made a written apology to him for the events that took place and the embarrassment caused.
“These were three decent young women who went for a night out. They did not expect Wayne to end up in their company and are remorseful about how things turned out with the pictures.
“They got carried away and did something they later regretted. They did not expect it to end up in the mainstream media after it was posted on social media and they decided to take steps to put things right.
“It would be wrong to say no money changed hands because when a contract is drawn up there must be a sum and in this case it was a nominal £1.
“They have fulsomely apologised because they wanted to do what they saw as the right thing and draw a line under the matter.”
There were initial reports that Rooney had gone to the police over the matter, but it appears as though a “fulsome” apology and the photo rights is enough to settle the dispute. In the end, it was Rooney who invited the girls over at the club and chose to return to their hotel room.
