It was necessary to wait for Netflix to be born, for it to become a multi-million dollar industry capable of displacing traditional cinema, and for it to decide to offer a fortune to reveal what seemed like an open secret: the story of David’s infidelity Beckham and his wife Victoria.
The premiere of the series about the most prominent British couple was the occasion to deal with this topic, which goes back to 2003 and which she describes as a time in which she was “the unhappiest she has ever experienced”.
But since it happened a long time ago, it’s worth first remembering what he’s talking about. As a famous presenter would say: Let the wretched man pass: The woman for whom Victoria suffered so much is called Rebecca Loos, she was hired as David’s assistant when he arrived at Real Madrid and there when his family was still in London, he lived alone and she… Anyway, they began a torrid romance, which she later glossed over in the tabloid News of the World, in return for 400,000 euros plus 200,000 euros for an exclusive interview on the private channel Sky One in England, in to whom she… she had to tell details.
And he fulfilled the purpose of the contract: he said that they had sexual relations six times, that Beckham was a complacent lover who “is not afraid of a woman’s body in a hurry: “The thing “It was to undress us, it to do and it was over. I felt a bit like a prostitute, I felt cheap and used. I thought to myself, why am I doing this? But I adore him. I still adore him,” she said 20 years ago.
The Beckhams always denied the now famous Rebecca’s version, but Victoria used the Netflix documentary – which can now be seen in full – to speak openly about the topic for the first time. Let the betrayed person pass: “It was the most difficult time because I felt like the world was against us. The thing is, if I’m being completely honest, we were against each other. You know, until Madrid we sometimes felt like we were against everyone else, but we were together, we were connected, we had each other. But when we were in Spain we didn’t feel like we had each other either. And that’s sad. I can’t tell you how difficult it was and how it affected me. “It was a nightmare,” he revealed.
“It was an absolute circus and everyone loves it when the circus comes to town, right? Unless you’re in it,” he added. But the key question is whether she still holds grudges after 20 years: “If I’m being completely honest, yes, I do. “It was the most unhappy thing I have ever experienced in my life.”
Victoria said she “internalized” the trauma to support her husband in his career: “It’s not that I felt ignored because I was always aware of the attention he needed.”
The woman with whom David had an affair is not mentioned in the four-part documentary, but there are newspaper headlines from the time, including one that reads: “Sex with Becks.”
Becks, 48, likes to describe the toll the reports took on his beloved wife, whom he had married four years earlier in 1999.
Tonight her four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper attended the premiere. Romeo’s girlfriend Mia Regan and Brooklyn’s wife Nicola Peltz were also present at the screening in central London, along with numerous celebrities.
How did they overcome it? David explained a little: “There were some terrible stories that were difficult to deal with. It was the first time Victoria and I had had so much pressure in our marriage. Every time we woke up we felt like there was something more, both of us. We felt like we were going to lose each other at that moment.”
David says it was torture leaving his house, going to training and pretending nothing had happened, and his wife remembers it could have been a terrifying time for their eldest son. Broolyn, who was very small. There was an even stranger moment when she was in the hospital giving birth to her son Cruz in 2005 and David wasn’t there because he had a photo shoot.
“I thought, ‘Seriously, I’m going to explode, I’m on bed rest.’ Are you kidding me?! You have a damn photo shoot with Jennifer Lopez, who is beautiful and won’t have a baby. So I had my c-section and I remember laying there, not feeling at my best, shall we say, and I remember someone showed me the front page of the newspaper with a beautiful photo of David between Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé and the caption was, ‘What would Posh say?’” he said. “Let me tell you what I would say: Posh was pissed!”
Years later, the Beckhams seemed to have healed their wounds when they moved to Los Angeles, a very happy time for everyone. Today the eldest son got married, everyone lives their own lives and Victoria and David are still together. End of the story.
