Are David and Victoria Beckham splitting for the summer? That’s the claim coming from a number of outlets. Gossip Cop investigated, however, and here’s what we found out.

“David And Victoria Beckham’s Heartbreaking Summer Split Exposed,” OK! exclaims in a headline. Picking up a report from fellow tabloid Now, the outlet claims the couple will “actually be spending their summer apart.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as explaining, “Victoria loves London and she’d rather spend all her time there now the house is finally ready. But David totally prefers LA.”

“He loves the pace of life in the US and is still having talks about his proposed football team Miami MLS, so he never want to be far from there,” continues the supposed source. The alleged tipster goes on, “Victoria wants their daughter Harper to have a proper base now that she’s started school and she won’t like the boys being moved from pillar to post constantly. She’s told David in no uncertain terms that is he’s [sic] heading off abroad he’ll be doing it all on his own.”

Naturally, OK! adds, “David and Victoria have faced nasty divorce rumors over the months after they reportedly divided up their assets.” A question posed to readers even asks, “Do you think David and Victoria are headed for a divorce?” Of course, it’s the magazine that’s been spreading those “nasty divorce rumors,” and Gossip Cop has been accurately correcting them.

Now we can do a double bust of both OK! and Now. A rep for the Beckhams exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “The family will be together this summer as they always are during school holidays.” While they may travel separately at times for professional obligations, there is no split, for the summer or otherwise.
