Mooney Rooney: UK police check blackmailing soccer star over hotel pics

Cheshire police are checking facts of blackmailed football star Wayne Rooney for possible violations of the law.


The images leaked online and his photos went viral on social media on Sunday.

"We have received a complaint of blackmail which we are reviewing," a Chesire police spokesperson told the media.

Wayne Rooney claimed that he was blackmailed over a set of images with three women. Rooney and a model Tayler Ryan with two friends Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, all 21, spend time in their £60-a-night room at Staycity hotel in the early hours of Sunday. When Rooney fell asleep, accompanies loaded on Instagram a lot of frivolous videos and photos.

Ryan posted to 13,000 followers a photo with the title "Mooney Rooney." It elicited a vigorous response from social media users. The netizens supported Rooney and condemned his companions’ act.

The representatives of the ex-England forward said he was framed and the photos were taken without his consent and reported to Greater Manchester Police.
