Rooney Splashes the Cash

English professional football manager Wayne Rooney has purchased the copyright in several hotel images taken of himself in a deal worth £1.00.

Reports state Rooney had met a group of women in a Manchester nightclub on 24 July 2021 and he later joined the women at their hotel in Manchester. Photographs were then taken of the former Manchester United star in the hotel room during the early hours of the morning. The photos of Rooney have been circulated on mainstream media after they were first posted on the women’s social media profiles.

A spokesperson for Rooney claimed the women who took the photographs voluntarily handed them over after contact from Rooney’s lawyer. An agreement was entered into between the parties with a fee of £1.00 being paid to the women for the copyright in the images. As Mr Rooney is now the owner of copyright in the photographs, they can now only be published with his consent.
