Celebrity mum Coleen Rooney has found herself in a blackmail plot after she lost her camera phone at a recent Black Eyed Peas concert. The phone contained private photographs of her 15-month old son Kai, according to the Daily Mail.
The wife of footballer Wayne Rooney was apparently distraught after she realised that her phone was left behind in a private box at Manchester’s MEN Arena last year. Instead of returning it, three people kept the phone and tried to blackmail 24-year-old Coleen for a five-figure sum for the return of the camera.
It’s believed that on top of the blackmail threats, the thieves also made attempts to sell the intimate baby snaps to various newspapers. Three arrests have now been made and Coleen and Wayne’s spokesperson has said, “They take their son’s privacy very seriously.”
