The three ladies who were involved in an alleged blackmail ploy against Derby County boss Wayne Rooney have reportedly apologized to the Manchester United legend.

Rooney was a trending topic on Tuesday, 27 July after photos of him in a hotel room with several ladies hit the internet.

The photos showed Rooney with some young ladies clubbing and they were later pictured in a hotel room with the 35-year old seemingly asleep at the time the snaps were taken.

In one of the photos, a lady was seen scantily dressed next to Rooney and the caption read ‘Mooney Rooney’.

The other image showed Rooney slumped in a chair with a woman making the peace sign towards the camera with the caption: “Sleepy Wayne”.

Daily Star now reports that the ladies involved in the images have apologized and sold the copyright of the images for just £1 (GHC 8.29).

“The three girls who took the photographs contacted Wayne’s lawyers and volunteered to hand over all pictures that were taken that night and the copyrights in them. Rooney’s spokesman told Daily Mirror.
“They have also, at their own suggestion, made a written apology to him for the events that took place and the embarrassment caused.
“These were three decent young women who went for a night out. They did not expect Wayne to end up in their company and are remorseful about how things turned out with the pictures.
