‘Sex lies are wreck­ing my fam­ily’

Daily Star - - FRONT PAGE - By JERRY LAW­TON

■ WAYNE Rooney blasted claims he cheated on wife Coleen af­ter he was pic­tured out­side a ho­tel lift with a mystery brunette.

The footie ace says the ru­mours are un­true and “dam­ag­ing”.

WAYNE Rooney has said pic­tures of him in a ho­tel lobby with a mystery woman had dam­aged his mar­riage to Coleen.

The DC United player yes­ter­day re­leased a public state­ment deny­ing any­thing had hap­pened be­tween him and any girl that night.

He said the “whole story was a smear” against him and “not true”.

And the for­mer Manch­ester United and Eng­land cap­tain added: “It is dam­ag­ing to my fam­ily and not some­thing I am pre­pared to put up with.’’

The mar­riage cri­sis erupted af­ter a re­port the footie ace had got into a ho­tel lift at 5.30am with a brunette af­ter par­ty­ing with team-mates on a trip to Van­cou­ver, Canada.

It al­leged the striker had downed rum and cokes with other play­ers in a club, where he was seen cosy­ing up to another brunette.

Coleen, 33, is said to have con­fronted him in the US over the claims and re­port­edly de­manded he re­turn to Bri­tain im­me­di­ately so they could save their mar­riage.

Last night, a re­moval truck was seen out­side their home in Bathesda, Mary­land.

Wayne, also 33, who is set to be­come Derby County’s player coach af­ter the MLS sea­son ends in Oc­to­ber, lashed out at the me­dia re­ports, say­ing the story was “com­pletely un­true”.

He said: “They are us­ing mine and my fam­ily’s name to sell pa­pers.

“Noth­ing hap­pened be­tween me and any girl on that night in Van­cou­ver.

“I did not en­ter the lift alone with the girl pic­tured in the ho­tel foyer.

“The girl pic­tured in the club was sim­ply one of many who in­no­cently asked for au­to­graphs and pic­tures.”
