    MORE ON WAYNE ROONEY’S PIC DEAL WITH PARTY GIRLS

    The deal with the other three means Wayne can now try to stop future publication of the viral images as he owns the copyright.

    His people claimed the girls “volunteered” to hand the photos over and made a written apology for the “embarrassment” caused, the Mirror reports.

    A statement said: “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.”

    WAYNE WANTS A ‘FRESH START’ SAYS SOURCE

    Sources told The Sun he wanted a “fresh start” and “knows losing his unhealthy relationship with the bottle would be the best thing”.

    Rooney, dad to Kai, 11, Klay, eight, Kit, five, and Cass, three, has been in the dog house with Coleen for a series of drunken scandals.

    In 2017, he was driving Laura Simpson home when he was nicked for drink-driving at 2am after a ten-hour booze session.

    In 2019, the then-DC United player was arrested for being drunk in public when he set off a security door alarm at a US airport after a booze and sleeping pill mix left him “disoriented”.

    EXPLAINED: WHO IS WAYNE’S WIFE COLEEN ROONEY?

    Born April 3, 1986, Coleen Rooney, 35, is probably best known as a football Wag – the other half of former England captain Wayne Rooney.

    The 35-year-old was born Coleen McLoughlin in Liverpool, where her dad Tony ran a boxing club. When Wayne first rocketed to sporting stardom she wrote columns for Closer and OK! magazine, talking about fashion and style.

    Coleen has in addition been the face of famous brands like George at Asda, Littlewoods, and baby toy company Lamaze.

    She recently hit the headlines after winning the latest round in the so-called Wagatha Christie battle with Rebekah Vardy.

    JAMES ARTHUR SAYS HE’S BEEN SET UP BY ‘HONEYTRAP’ GIRLS BECAUSE HE’S FAMOUS – JUST LIKE WAYNE ROONEY

    JUST like Wayne Rooney, James Arthur reckons he has had the wool pulled over his eyes in a “honeytrap”.

    The 2012 X Factor winner claims he was duped by a couple of women in his early days of fame, saying they only wanted to be with him because of his status.

    James told how he went on a date with one girl and saw paparazzi photos of them together in the media the following day.

    He said: “I think I might have been honey-trapped a couple of times by certain ladies. I went on a date — I won’t name the girl — but I went on a date with a girl who was in the public eye at one point.

    “There was a lot of photos of us the next day and it all seemed like . . . it all felt a little bit set up.”

    WAYNE’S WORLD

    Wayne Rooney remains Derby County manager and took charge of the Rams’ victory over Real Betis.

    But the under-fire England legend has been read the riot act by club chiefs after his boozy antics at the weekend.

    Rooney’s side put in an impressive performance to win 1-0 over the LaLiga side at Pride Park – thanks to a Max Bird strike four minutes from time.

    Rams boss Roo’s £4.5million-a-year job was on a knife edge after the father-of-four was pictured passed-out and surrounded by semi-naked girls in a Manchester hotel room.

    The pictures of Rooney, 35, went viral, to the fury of Rams owner Mel Morris and his board, who are currently trying to attract new potential buyers to the ailing Championship club.

    But SunSport understands Rooney will stay in his £90,000-a-week job and that he was left in no doubt about the standards he is expected to set as the club’s manager and high-profile figurehead.

    In a show of defiance earlier today, he smiled for photographs with fans and signed autographs as he arrived for the pre-season clash at Pride Park.
