Wayne Rooney got the hairdryer treatment from wife Coleen over his drunken US airport arrest.
During a blistering telephone call she yelled: “How many times do you need to be told?”
A source said: “She told him he wasn’t to go out of the house again without her supervision.
“Coleen was really p***ed off with Wayne for getting into trouble again.
“She was mortified when she got the call about it and wanted him straight home. She called him an idiot for doing something so stupid.”
Rooney was arrested for public intoxication and swearing on December 16 after landing at Washington Dulles Airport.
The England and Manchester United legend, who now plays for Washington’s United DC, had mixed cocktails and sleeping pills during a 14-hour private jet flight from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
He was held in the cells until he sobered up. He later flew back to the UK for Christmas.
Coleen, 32, had calmed down by the time she saw Rooney, 33, face-to-face. The source said: “She warned him to never do something so daft again.
“When he’s been drinking and gets into trouble it upsets her because she thinks it gives a bad impression of their relationship.
“She’s told him before that people will assume he’s unhappy if they see him out drinking.
“But Coleen did see the funny side later when she saw how ridiculous the situation was.
“They’re loving their life as a family in the US and are moving on.”
Rooney is serving a two-year UK drink driving ban stemming from a September 2017 arrest in England. He admitted to drink-driving on a night out when he was caught driving a woman named Laura Simpson’s Volkswagen Beetle when nearly three times the legal limit.
Along with his ban Rooney was also ordered to carry out 100 hours of community service. It later emerged Rooney was docked two weeks of wages — about 35,000 — while with Everton.
Coleen was pregnant with the couple’s fourth child at the time and had made the announcement days before his arrest.
Simpson later revealed she had “kissed and hugged” the football star after they met in a bar before he drove her VW Beetle in Cheshire.
The 33-year-old forward came to Washington last July, signing with DC United and taking the last-place Major League Soccer club into the playoffs in his first half-season with the squad.
Rooney was the centrepiece of United’s marketing campaign as the team opened a new stadium, the English star saying upon his arrival he looked forward to the challenge and enjoyed the relative anonymity afforded by suburban life in America.
Rooney, who has retired from international duty, signed a three-year deal with DC United after quitting Everton — the club he started his professional career with as a teenager before joining Manchester United.
