Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen are currently being sued for almost £500,000 in a disagreement with their agents, Proactive. The accusations are Rooney hasn’t paid two months worth of commission and that he also owes them £19,000 for the cost of Wayne’s stag do, which was put on the agency’s credit card.
