Before this month, Rebecca Loos had been living a quiet life in Norway.
But now, she's been thrust back into the public consciousness by Beckham, the new four-part Netflix docuseries about David and Victoria Beckham.
While the series documents David's rise to one of the world's most famous football stars, it also explores his relationship and marriage with Victoria, including the period Victoria described as her most unhappy - the time David was accused of having an affair with his assistant, Rebecca Loos.
Since the documentary's release, Rebecca's Instagram comments section has been overrun by negativity - which she has subtly responded to.
"Some of the comments on here are disgusting!!!" one commenter wrote, prompting a reply from Rebecca.
"Thank you. Am taking in the nasty comments with as much humour as I can," she wrote back.
In 2004, five years into the Beckhams' marriage, Rebecca gave an interview to the News of the World claiming they'd had a four-month affair.
At the time, David called the story "ludicrous" and said the "simple truth" was that he was "very happily married".
"I have a wonderful wife and two very special kids. There is nothing any third party can do to change these facts."
Despite his denial, David did not make any legal challenge of Rebecca's claims and she became a media personality.
Six months after her News of the World bombshell, she starred on British reality show The Farm, a competition show where celebrities lived and worked on a farm. She also starred on shows including Celebrity Love Island, Extreme Celebrity Detox, the Dutch version of Temptation Island and New Zealand series Treasure Island: Pirates of the Pacific.
