Representative For David And Victoria Beckham Speaks Out On Divorce Rumours
| Last updated
David and Victoria Beckham have denied rumours of a split in a statement after bookies suspended betting on the couple divorcing.
Ex-England captain David, 43, met the former Spice Girls star in 1997 and the couple are due to celebrate their 19th wedding anniversary at the beginning of July.
In a statement, reps for the couple said: "There is no statement due or divorce.
"This is just fake social media news. This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.
"There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fak social media news."
Well that's everyone told then.
Bookmakers have suspended betting on the 'power' couple splitting up, the Mirror reported.
44-year-old Victoria bumped into the Manchester United legend 21 years ago at a charity football match.
And the couple who share children Harper, six, Cruz, 13, Romeo, 15 and 19-year-old Brooklyn, have been together ever since.
They regularly share family snaps on their Instagram accounts and messages of affection.
The rumours have come with no suggestion that the couple are suffering marriage problems and just this morning Victoria shared a picture of herself cuddling Harper and said: "Morning cuddles x So much love We love and miss u @davidbeckham".
Can't imagine she'd be declaring her love for him if they were separating, can you?
But bookmakers Paddy Power are no longer accepting bets on divorce - but are offering odds on who Becks could strike up a relationship with next. What a kick in the teeth that is.
A spokesman said: "We've decided to suspend betting on the separation between Posh and Becks."
The bookmakers are offering odds of 3/1 that Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins will become the next Mrs Beckham.
Meanwhile, Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston are 4/1 and 6/1 respectively to be next in line.
While Rebecca Loos, who claimed to have had an alleged affair with Beckham in 2004, is rated as 100/1 to score with Golden Balls.
Last month, Becks caused a stir when he attended the Royal Wedding looking rather dapper.
Then, just to remind us why we love him, he stopped to have a selfie with a 12-year-old survivor of the Manchester Arena bombing.
Young Amelia Mae Thompson later explained that the moment was the high point of the day for her.
In front of the ITV News cameras, she was asked what had been the 'best bit' of her day, and answered: "Getting a selfie with David Beckham and seeing the horse and carriage go past."
What an absolute LAD he is, and not forgetting Victoria too.
