According to David Beckham‘s carefully curated public image, the former soccer star is a doting family man who is completely and utterly devoted to his wife and four kids.
But there have also been rumours of infidelity that have plagued the 43-year-old for years, with reports of affairs with multiple women dating as far back as 2004.
Despite the repeated rumours though, the public seems to be quick to forgive and forget when it comes to David’s alleged indiscretions – a testament, no doubt, to his expertly crafted image as a committed family man.
Most recently, David has been linked to his six-year-old daughter Harper’s school teacher, amid reports he allegedly impregnated her.
The reports surfaced on Twitter late last week, with multiple insiders saying it was just a matter of time before David and his wife of 19 years, Victoria Beckham, announced their divorce, as reported by Mamamia.
But as has become the norm for the PR-savvy couple, they were quick to shut down the rumours, issuing denials to various media outlets.
“This is nonsense,” a spokesperson for Victoria, 44, told Harper’s Bazaar almost as soon as the story broke.
“There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news,” a spokesperson for the couple told The Sun.
“This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.”
Proving it was business as usual for the pair, Victoria also shared a photo on Instagram of herself and David looking affectionate in what appeared to have been a candid moment.
“#momentcaptured,” she wrote, adding a love heart emoji.
