Wayne Rooney party girl Laura Simpson sells her car

The woman at the centre of Wayne Rooney’s drink-drive scandal has sold the car the footballer was driving when he was arrested for being over the limit.

Party girl Laura Simpson took to social media to announce she was going to sell her VW Beetle because she gets so many chants from ‘white van men at traffic lights’.

The 29-year-old wrote on Twitter: ‘Need a new car cba being sang chants by the world and his wife’s white van men when I’m at traffic lights.’

Simpson has been at the centre of a media storm since meeting Rooney on September 1. 

They enjoyed a night of drinking in Cheshire, after which the footballer was caught three times over the legal limit while driving her Volkswagen Beetle. 

Just days ago, Simpson exchanged flirty Twitter messages with former boxing champ Ricky Hatton, 38.

The sporting star asked for her number on the social media site, prompting her to jokingly hit back that she wasn’t interested as she prefers footballers instead.

Meanwhile Rooney’s embattled wife Coleen, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, has not worn her wedding ring since her husband’s arrest.

Earlier this week, Wayne apologised for his ‘unforgivable lack of judgement’ as he was banned from driving for two years and given 100 hours’ community service.

In his statement he said: ‘I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgment in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.

‘I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.

‘Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.’
