Man Pleads Guilty To Blackmailing Coleen
A man has pleaded guilty to blackmailing Coleen Rooney.
Lee Platt, 28, pleaded guilty to blackmailing the wife of Manchester United and England footballer Wayne Rooney at Manchester Crown Court today.
Platt, from Manchester, also entered a guilty plea to handling stolen goods.
Platt was arrested after the striker's celebrity wife lost her mobile phone at a concert at the MEN arena in Manchester in May.
The phone apparently contained family snaps of the couple's son taken on the phone camera.
Coleen Rooney was allegedly later contacted with a request for money to have the phone returned.
Jennifer Green, 25, and Steven Malcolm, 42, also from Manchester, today entered not guilty pleas to the same charges.
