Like most couples in the public eye, Bec and Lleyton Hewitt have long been the centre of rumours that their 11-year marriage is “on the rocks.”
But unlike most couples, they’ve traditionally avoided commenting on the incessant media speculation around their relationship.
The 33-year-old actress and 35-year-old former world number one tennis player spent Derby Day, Melbourne Cup Day and Oaks Day in the Lavazza marquee, where Bec was a racing ambassador.
But ‘insiders’ told New Idea that on Cup Day, Lleyton “proceeded to get more and more wasted, while we didn’t even see her with one drink!”
“Bec’s been hiding a big secret, and it’s the fact they’re growing apart after years of being together,” said another ‘source.’
The claims from a ‘family friend’ about Lleyton’s drinking and gambling go on and on, but the couple have had enough, saying Woman’s Day and New Idea completely fabricated the rift.
Speaking to News Corp, Bec said, “It disappoints me to think that we cannot go out and enjoy a day with friends without it being sabotaged.”
