We’re sorry Coleen Rooney, say parents of prostitute
The parents of the woman Wayne Rooney allegedly paid £1,200-a-time for sex apologised to the footballer's wife Coleen yesterday.
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 2-1 victory over Switzerland on Tuesday — 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 is at her parents' home in Huyton, Liverpool, as she decides what to do.
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.
“We would also like to make it clear that we are not interested in being interviewed by any newspaper or magazine no matter what offer has or may be made.
“This is also true of Jenny's three brothers (Alexander, Charlie and Max) and other members of our families.
“We will not be answering any questions from this point forward.”
Miss Thompson was born in Aberdeen but brought up in the Gulf state of Qatar as her father is reportedly an oil executive.
Rooney remained inside his mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire, yesterday after returning in the early hours from England's European Championship qualifier in Basel.
A group of photographers and reporters had been gathered outside since the news broke in the News of the World on Sunday.
Yesterday, his model and celebrity columnist wife emerged from her parents' plush detached house for the first time.
She appeared with a scarf wrapped round her left hand, concealing the ring finger.
