After fleeing from Coleen Rooney’s furious pals last week, Jenny Thompson exclusively tells Closer magazine she lives in fear of being attacked by people loyal to Coleen and has hit back at the star.
She says: “I think it’s pathetic. They don’t own Liverpool and don’t have any right to slag me off. Are they calling Wayne the same names? I wasn’t the one doing the cheating.”
Speaking out for the first time about the incident, she said: “I was walking past this club when I heard someone shout my name. A girl came outside and tried to trip me up, but I stepped over her foot. At first, it was just this girl calling me names, then she got three other girls to join in. They were shouting ‘slag’ and ‘whore.’ I just kept going with my head down, but they followed me.”
And Jenny reveals she fears getting attacked by Coleen’s fans. “I worry what people might do. I think people could glass me, like what happened to Danielle Lloyd who ended up injured in a nightclub,” she says.
Jenny – who tried to kill herself just two months ago by taking an overdose of pills, and is now seeing a psychiatrist once a week – adds: “I did it to try to escape this whole thing.”
She’s also been the subject of abuse online on Twitter and Facebook by those supporting Coleen. She said: “The abuse online started straight away. People called me a tramp and a slag.”
However, Coleen’s fans may be angered by Jenny’s plans to move from Manchester to Coleen’s hometown of Liverpool to start up her own escort agency, which is bound to make the situation harder for Coleen. But Jenny maintains she’s going to keep out of the Rooneys way. “Apparently I’ve been banned from several places in Liverpool and Manchester, but I don’t want to see her anyway,” she says.
“If I did see Coleen, I’d leave. If she said something nasty, I’d just ask her if she’d said the same to Wayne, then I’d walk away. But if there was a chance I could make peace with her, I would.”
