David Beckham and Victoria Beckham are not "headed for divorce," despite a new tabloid report falsely claiming the couple is splitting after 18 years together. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight about this bogus breakup rumor.
An article in the latest issue of OK! says the retired soccer star and former Spice Girl have grown apart in recent years and are now stuck in a passionless marriage. The magazine then quotes a supposed "source" as saying the spouses "have more of a business relationship than a romantic one at this point."
The outlet's dubious insider goes on to contend that the couple's alleged split will be amicable as they plan to evenly divide their $1 billion fortune and share custody of their three kids. "This has been a long time coming, and they are practical about it," adds the tabloid's questionable source.
As for the supposed reasons behind the couple's so-called "divorce," the magazine's seemingly phony insider says there haven't been any major fights between the two, but "their lives are just going in different directions." "David still loves to party in L.A. and Miami... while Victoria prefers her close circle of friends in the U.K.," according to alleged insider, who adds, "They agree this is for the best. They're both eager to start the next chapter of their lives."
Of course, the tabloids have been trying to break up the happily married couple for a long time, so Gossip Cop was suspicious of this latest story. Our doubts were confirmed after checking in with a source close to the couple, who exclusive assures us they're not on the verge of a divorce. We're told the Beckhams' relationship is going strong and the tabloid's claim otherwise is simply "not true."
In fact, OK! tried to arbitrarily drive a wedge between the spouses earlier this year when it wrongly reported David and Victoria might split over his emails being hacked. Gossip Cop debunked that report, as well as the tabloid's 2016 cover story falsely claiming the Beckhams had separated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
