London, Sep 6 (IANS): English footballer Wayne Rooney reportedly had a series of intimate sessions with a 21-year-old prostitute nicknamed "Juicy Jeni" while his wife Coleen was pregnant with their first child.
The 24-year-old Manchester United striker reportedly made the confession to Coleen about his infidelity via text message as she sat in a hairdresser's salon Saturday, reports smh.com.au.
In an interview to tabloid News of The World, the sex worker, real name Jenny Thompson, said: "Wayne chased me with sex texts and paid in wads of cash. He didn't seem to care he was betraying Coleen."
The pair's tryst began when they met at a Manchester casino June last year - two months after the footballer and his wife announced they were expecting their first child.
Thompson revealed that she first bedded Rooney with another girl at the five-star Lowry Hotel.
"We both wore identical black lacy bra-and-brief sets specially bought from La Senza. Wayne told us he'd never had a threesome before. He was shy and awkward - and me and my friend were left to do all the work."
Rooney again met Thompson on six occasions. He arranged their meetings on prepaid mobile phones and paid more than $1600 in cash or casino chips for her services.
The footballer even reportedly invited Thompson to the family's $7.6 million mansion in Cheshire, but she refused.
Meanwhile, Coleen has left their home and is staying with her parents.
"Coleen and Wayne were supposed to attend a family christening this weekend but they didn't show up," said an unnamed friend.
"Coleen had been getting her hair done on Saturday when Wayne texted her to break the news. He's a coward for hiding behind a text message, especially when they'd been together earlier that day," the friend added.
