COLEEN Rooney has revealed she's "forgiven" Wayne for his booze and sex shame antics but admits: "It wasn't acceptable".
The couple's 13-year marriage has been rocked by a string of drunken scandals that have landed him in the dog house.
Most recently, the ex-Utd legend was pictured in a Manchester hotel with Snapchat models after a night out in July.
But defiant Coleen, 35, says she has forgiven Wayne's boozy behaviour in a new documentary about the England captain.
The mum-of-four says in an official trailer for Rooney on Amazon Prime: "I knew groups Wayne was hanging around. Together with alcohol…not good.
"I forgive him but it wasn't acceptable."
Wayne, 35, and Coleen met when she was just 12 years old in the Liverpool suburb of Croxteth.
They started a relationship when they were turned 16 after leaving school as Wayne's stunning football career started to take off.
But the Derby manager's impressive vocation has often been eclipsed by his behaviour off the pitch.
In 2004, Rooney reportedly paid £140 for sex with prostitute Charlotte Glover, then 21, and gave her his autograph as a “souvenir”.
A month later, he was said to have slept with Gina McCarrick, then 37, at a £45-a-go brothel in Liverpool.
It was round about this time – four years before he wed childhood sweetheart Coleen – he is said to have romped with grandmother Patricia Tierney.
The 48-year-old wore a rubber catsuit and was known as the ‘Auld Slapper’.
Despite owning up to his mistakes and saying he regretted it "deeply", just five years later he cheated on Coleen again while she was pregnant.
Wayne slept with £1,000-a-night prostitute Jenny Thompson and took her on a string of dates to bars, clubs and casinos.
Heartbroken Coleen moved out of the family home with newborn son Kai after Wayne's infidelity came to light but she later took him back.
But shortly after, it was reported the forward had a threesome with Helen Wood and Jenny.
Coleen forgave her husband once again – and gave birth to sons Klay in 2013 and Kit in 2016.
But in 2017, he was driving party girl Laura Simpson home when he was nicked for drink-driving at 2am after a ten-hour booze session.
And two years later, the then-DC United player was arrested for being drunk in public when he set off a security door alarm at a US airport after a booze and sleeping pill mix left him “disoriented”.
But Coleen has always stood by Wayne, who she shares sons Kai, Klay, Kit and Cass with.
After his latest scandal in July, she stuck by her husband and believed he was the victim of a "set-up".
And when Wayne was caught drink-driving, Coleen, who was pregnant at the time, insisted she is a "strong person" as she set the record straight about her marriage.
She said: "A few people are probably thinking am 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.
"Before the headlines start…. No, I'm not taking Wayne back as he's never left. Yes, it has been a s**t time, and yes, time was spent apart and I thought my marriage might have been at an end.
"I'm not going to list Wayne's good qualities as a person as I don't think he deserves it at this time but one thing is that he is a brilliant dad.
"He's made silly and selfish mistakes, some he's learnt from, some obviously not. However maybe that will change?
"It's my decision …. do I love Wayne … yes I do. If I didn't then I wouldn't be trying to make it work. 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."
The new documentary features interviews with David Beckham, Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand.
It charts Wayne's incredible success with testimonies from his family, friends and the footballer himself.
Former Utd teammate Neville explains how Wayne "threw the odd punch, but never when someone didn't deserve it."
And in one emotional scene, Wayne reveals how his dad would "slap" him during blazing rows when he was growing up.
Speaking candidly, the ace tells the show, which is due to air early next year: "People still look at me in a different way.
"For me it's important that people remember me for who I am rather than what I've done."
