"BAPS" - The British Association of ProstituteS - announced today its intention to sue Manchester United player, Wayne Rooney.
Rooney, once again in the news for paying for sex has now been deemed by the organsation as damaging its important brand image and as a result, compensation is being sought.
"We have spent a number of years trying to improve the reputation of hookers everywhere" a spokesman described, "and to now be linked so publicly with such a shameful and morally corrupt character as this premiership footballer based solely on the actions of a non member of our group is wrong. We are seeking significant damages".
It is believed that BAPS are also close to signing a notable sponsorship deal with a large sporting manufacturer, which may now be at risk given the recent news.
