Victoria and David Beckham commented for the first time on rumors of a football player's infidelity: who is Rebecca Loos and what happened in 2003
Supermodel Victoria Beckham commented for the first time on the difficult period 20 years ago, when the media accused her footballer husband David Beckham of "cheating" with his assistant Rebecca Loos. For decades, the couple did not respond to rumors in the public space and now decided to only describe their struggle for a relationship.
According to Victoria Beckham and her husband, the period in 2003, when the football legend was still playing for Real Madrid, was the most difficult in their relationship. The stars shared their feelings in a new documentary series about their lives, which was released on Netflix, writes the Daily Mail (to see photos and videos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The story of the "betrayal" began twenty years ago, when a tabloid published news of Beckham's infidelity to his wife. It was claimed that his assistant model Rebecca Loos had become the star's new romantic interest. The "mistress" herself publicly confirmed the information and boasted that she had slept with the married Beckham, who denied everything.
The news was picked up by the media, and the paparazzi attacked the family. However, it was not the attention of journalists that was a blow to the Beckhams, but the undermining of trust in the family. The lovers did not disclose whether or not there had been an affair, but judging by their words, the marriage was really hanging in the balance. At the same time, the tabloids unearthed several more stories about the athlete's infidelity.
"It was the most difficult period for us. Before, it often seemed to us that the world was against us, but we always had each other... But in Spain, this connection seemed broken. And it was sad. I can't even explain to you how hard it was and how it affected me," Victoria Beckham admitted with tears in her eyes.
Her husband was also going through a difficult period at the time. He saw his wife broken every day, and later he found himself alone, because she stayed in England while Beckham built his career in Spain. However, due to family problems, the footballer could not concentrate on his work.
"Every time we woke up, we felt like we weren't losing each other, we were drowning. To be honest, I don't know how we got through it. Victoria is everything to me. Seeing her suffering was incredibly hard, but we are fighters. At the time, we had to fight for each other, we had to fight for our family," Beckham recalled.
The lovers managed to let go of the situation only after moving to the United States, where they bought a house and found themselves in an English-speaking environment. Subsequently, the family stayed in different parts of the world until they eventually moved to England.
Where is Rebecca Loos now?
The former Beckham assistant lives in Norway with her doctor husband. She started a family a long time ago and even managed to give birth to her beloved children. Nowadays, the former model, who is rumored to have earned a lot of money from the scandal with the footballer, leads a private life and focuses on social media.
As OBOZREVATEL wrote, David Beckham married singer and fashion designer Victoria on July 4, 1999. In honor of their 24th wedding anniversary, the star couple showed how they looked at the beginning of the romance.
