Rebecca Loos reveals ‘text that sparked affair’ with David Beckham
| Last updated
In recent Netflix documentary Beckham, the footballer and his Spice Girl wife open up on allegations that David had an affair with Rebecca Loos.
Both David and Victoria denied the allegations of an affair, while Loos said 'he needs to take responsibility' as she watched it, complaining that he was 'portraying himself as the victim and he's making me look like a liar'.
"I think it's one thing to keep your private life to yourself. It's another thing to mislead the public. And so many people had forgotten about all of this," she said.
"So many people put all this behind them, this whole affair, the scandal and everything. And he's dragged it back up again in a way that is affecting my reputation.
"I think if he was going to touch on this time and how difficult it was, it would have been really nice for him to have said 'it was not my proudest time'."
Among her claims was mention of a six word text message from Beckham which she said was the start of her problems.
She had been assigned to work for Beckham and his family following his move from Manchester United to Real Madrid.
Loos claimed to the Mail she was told by Victoria Beckham's personal assistant to talk only to Victoria and not David, alleging that the football icon then started messaging her anyway.
She claimed: "It was something to do with the house - a pool or gym or something - and, let’s say, David wanted A and Victoria wanted B.
"Victoria’s PA then rang and said, “Victoria wants you to talk directly to her and not to David.”
"And then David began texting me. When I said I’d been given instructions not talk to him about things he said "We don’t have to tell anyone'."
Loos has received support following the release of Beckham, which she said she initially thought would just be about his footballing career and not his private life.
She had been criticised on social media by some, while others stepped in to say that it had been 20 years since the alleged affair and those who wanted to criticise her ought to 'leave her alone'.
