Victoria and David Beckham call divorce rumors 'nonsense' and a ‘crock of s**t’
The divorce rumors pertaining to David and Posh had even become a trending topic on Twitter and Facebook
David and Victoria Beckham could not have stayed married to each other for nearly two decades and not have had to fence off a divorce rumor or two. The rumor has come up again, and uncharacteristically, the couple that maintain classy silence in the eye of these controversies, has decided to set things straight.
Then again, this time around, it is not just fans speculating or Page 3 sections that are spreading this fake news. Even big media outlets have been speculating and betting on the British power-couple's divorce, with the subject becoming one of the trending topics on most social media sites including Facbook and Twitter.
The Beckhams, having decided enough was enough, told The Sun, “If I spent all my time responding to ridiculous Beckham gossip and rumours there wouldn’t be enough hours in the day. What nonsense. Journalist Chinese whispers and fake news fuelled by social media. There is no impending statement, no divorce.”
A spokeswoman for the couple further added: “This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.” A spokeswoman is reported to have added that the whole issue is "a crock of s**t."
“It is nonsense. It is one of those laughable, nonsense things. There is no divorce. It is laughable.,” according to David Beckham’s spokesman.
The gossip mills had started churning out the story early Friday morning, despite the adorable messages the two had been leaving for each other.
The handsome couple have four children together – three boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, and a girl, Harper. The whole family seems to be pretty close with each other, oftentimes expressing love for one another on social media.
Less than a day prior to this, on June 8, Posh had posted an adorable photo of herself with young Harper, along with the caption, "Morning cuddles x So much love 🙏🏻 We love and miss u @davidbeckham 💕💕💕💕" What couple on the brink of a divorce would post such a beautiful message for one another.
The two have been together since 1997 after meeting at a football charity event and got married two years later in July 1999 at a castle in Ireland, four months after Brooklyn's birth.
They were most recently seen together at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on May 18; the second royal wedding they attended together after the betrothal of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.
Unofficially, the whole family was seen out and about, having dinner together at an up-scale restaurant in Oxfordshire countryside last week. According to a source who was present at the event said: “They seemed very happy together. They did not look like a couple on the brink of divorce.”
We sure are glad that the rumors are put to rest and hopefully will not come up again, at least not for a while.
