Wayne Rooney party girls ‘didn’t realise he was footie star’ and kept calling him ‘Wayne Clooney’

THE girls who partied with Wayne Rooney didn't realise he was a football star at first, a friend has claimed.

And one of them knew he was famous but allegedly kept on calling him Wayne CLOONEY.

The pal told the Mirror: "It was hilarious but everyone was in high spirits and enjoying themselves.

“They can be a feisty bunch and were just having fun. They were just having a laugh. Nobody meant any harm.”

The Derby County manager Rooney had gone to Chinawhite last Saturday with two male friends after his side had lost a pre-season friendly to League Two side Salford City.

They were joined in the VIP area by Tayler, Elise and a group of their friends who all come from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.

A nightclub snap shows Rooney close to a blonde. Another shows him sitting on a sofa with Tayler, whose face has the word “cute” peppered over it by a Snapchat filter.

At 5.15am, he was seen walking back to Staycity, with a hoodie pulled over his head and Tayler and another girl walking behind him. Once at the apartment, Rooney fell asleep after apparently barring the girls.

When they re-entered the room, one flashed her bottom in a snap beside the former ace. The picture was captioned “Mooney Rooney”.


Another photo saw one of the girls making a peace sign next to the snoozing superstar in a picture they titled “sleepy Wayne”. Another of the pals was seen lying on a bed in a basque as Rooney dozed.

A further picture showed him sitting next to a friend at the apartment holding a glass of wine.

There is no suggestion of any sexual contact between Rooney and the women in the photos that emerged.

After waking, Rooney, who lives in Knutsford, Cheshire, with Coleen and their four sons, called a pal who picked him up early on Sunday.

The girls were seen leaving at 12.30pm after their Snapchat images had gone viral.

Coleen, 35, was on a holiday in Abersoch, North Wales, with the couple’s sons, Kai, 11, Klay, eight, Kit, five, and three-year-old Cass while Rooney partied.

Rooney apologised after his night with the party girls last weekend.

He said: “I made a mistake. I went to a private party with two of my friends. I’d like to apologise to my family and the club for the images which have been going around.”


He also admitted he felt like a victim because he was photographed while he slept but he said: “I don’t really want to go into that.”

The women, meanwhile, apologised for their actions and sold the copyright to the circulated pictures to Rooney’s lawyers for £1. England’s record goalscorer had earlier complained to police, citing blackmail, but they decided no crime had been committed.

After the women said sorry, a spokesman for Rooney said: “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 didn’t expect it to end up in the mainstream media after it was posted on social media and 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.”
