It’s been a very turbulent few months for the Rooney’s – thanks to Wayne’s drink-driving conviction following his night out with party girl Laura Simpson.
And as the ins-and-outs surrounding his arrest came to light, his relationship with Coleen looked very uncertain, leading to months of rumours that their nine-year marriage was over.
However, Coleen has now spoken out in a very lengthy Facebook post, explaining honestly to fans exactly what the state of their marriage is – and it seems Wayne isn’t fully yet forgiven for his drunken behaviour.
The pregnant mum-of-three began her statement by explaining that she has decided to start wearing her wedding ring again.
Coleen then thanks fans for their support, but assures her followers that “feeling sorry” for her is unnecessary: “I appreciate getting cared about, however, I am a strong person, I don’t feel sorry for myself. Also a few people are probably thinking I’m stupid for staying in my marriage. I am not stupid, I know my own mind and it’s something I want to try and work on.”
Going on to address the current status of her marriage, Coleen explains: “No, I’m not taking Wayne back as he’s never left. Yes, it has been a s*** time, and yes, time was spent apart and I thought my marriage might have been at an end”.
“I would never trust ANYONE who has had a lot of alcohol, it changes some people drastically”.
Coleen then signs off her post with a message which reads: “I know I would be fine on my own, with just me and my children, but I don’t want to live like that, I want to try and continue our marriage and live as a family, because that’s what I want to do”.
