Coleen Rooney: Baby Son Kai Photo Blackmail Plot Latest

Coleen Rooney A friend of Coleen Rooney's has told a magazine the WAG was 'sickened' and left shaken after a gang attempted to blackmail her and husband Wayne with pictures of their baby son.

The 24-year-old was targeted by thieves in possession of a camera containing over 100 images of 15-month-old Kai.

The blackmailers threatened to sell the pics unless the Rooneys parted with a five-figure sum.
A source told Closer magazine that Coleen was 'shaken to the core over the latest incident... she was really upset,' adding, 'She was sickened that strangers had taken the camera and were trying to use such personal and private pictures to make some money.'

Three people were arrested in September over the attempted blackmail, two men and a woman.

It is believed Coleen's camera was taken when she left it on a table in the hospitality area at a Black Eyed Peas concert last year.
