Rooney too young to party with Diddy

Injured England hero Wayne Rooney has had to put off a night out in New York with rapper P Diddy -because he isn’t old enough to drink in the United States.

Rooney paid £150,000 at David and Victoria Beckham’s recent World Cup charity auction so he and fianc?e Coleen McLoughlin could party with Diddy at some of the Big Apple’s most “bling” nightspots. P Diddy – real name Sean Combs, 36 – boasted to the 600 VIPs at the Beckhams’ Full Length and Fabulous bash: “You spend a Saturday night out with me, you wake up on Wednesday.”

Rooney outbid Celebrity X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne for the date – then punched the air in joy and turned to Coleen to whisper: “It’s for you, love.”

But the couple, both 20, didn’t realize the legal age for drinking and entering most nightclubs in America is 21.

Rooney, who is still recovering from a broken bone in his foot, won’t reach that age until October 24, and Coleen won’t turn 21 until April 3 next year. The Manchester United star had hoped to whisk Coleen off to New York after the World Cup finishes on July 9, but will now jet out to see Diddy next year.

A friend of rap fan Rooney said: “Wayne loves P Diddy’s music and was really looking forward to a huge ‘bling’ night out in New York.
