Coleen gets apology over sex claims
Coleen Rooney has received an apology from the parents of the woman who footballer husband Wayne allegedly paid £1,200 a time for sex.
Hamish and Dana Thompson spoke out after claims that their daughter Jennifer, 21, regularly slept with the Manchester United and England star while his wife was pregnant.
Mr and Mrs Thompson issued a statement, saying: "Following the various newspaper articles concerning our daughter Jennifer, we would like to offer our most sincere apologies to Coleen Rooney and her family.
"This may sound somewhat hollow, but my wife and I would never condone what has or may have happened.
"We had absolutely no idea about any of the allegations and claims that have been made."
Miss Thompson is said to have met the striker - who scored in England's 3-1 victory over Switzerland last night - at Manchester's five star Lowry Hotel for sex. She also spent time with him at Manchester's 235 Casino, she has said.
Coleen, 24, was pregnant with their son Kai at the time. She has been staying at her parents' home in Huyton, Liverpool, since the allegations broke.
Mr and Mrs Thompson went on: "Following this statement, we will not discuss the current situation further. The last few days have been extremely trying for us and our family."
The couple, who were believed to be on holiday when news of their daughter's relationship with Rooney broke, added: "Jennifer is our daughter and we love her and we will deal with this matter as a family, not via the media.
"We would appreciate greatly if we could be afforded a degree of privacy and time in which we can gain a better understanding of the situation."
