Are David Beckham and Victoria Beckham headed for a split because the pressures of work are impacting their marriage? That’s the case according to one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop can confirm the story is entirely untrue.
OK! Australia asks, “Is It Over?” for the Beckhams. After a wholesome summer full of vacations and PDA, the two have started working full time again. This has prompted the outlet to insist their busy careers are tearing them apart. “Their summer closeness has all but disappeared,” an alleged tipster tells the magazine.
“David really thought these last few months have shown Victoria what their lives could be if they both just slowed down and enjoyed themselves a bit more,” adds the supposed source. “He was hanging his hopes on it. But instead, it was back to work for her, and back to all the same old frustrations for him.”
Victoria has been busy launching her new makeup line, Victoria Beckham Beauty, while David is prepping for the debut of his Miami soccer team. Naturally, this means the superstar couple will be spending some time apart, but it’s not the first time in their 20-year marriage they’ve had different schedules.
To its credit, the publication does acknowledge that both David and Victoria have publicly said marriage is hard work, but it completely ignores their statements about making it work despite the difficulties. “Their lives are less about each other and more about personal goals now,” the questionable insider concludes. “They’re on different paths.”
The story is totally phony. David posted a picture on Instagram of the entire family at Victoria’s fashion show earlier this week, along with the caption, “A lot of love for mummy this afternoon … Well done, we are so proud as always.” Those aren’t the words of someone who’s been trying to pull their partner away from their work as the tabloid alleges.
Also, as we mentioned earlier, this isn’t the first time the couple has had to spend some time apart while they worked on their respective careers. There’s no indication that this specific time will be any different. Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the Beckhams, who assures us the publication’s report is bogus.
The couple’s multi-million dollar businesses and their long standing relationship have made them a longtime target for the gossip media. In July, Gossip Cop busted the American edition of OK! when came up with a bizarre story about the Beckhams shopping for a castle together. In March, the outlet falsely stated the Beckhams were renewing their vows to shut down all of the divorce rumors that have circulated over the years.
Gossip Cop called out the tabloid yet again in May when it wrongly reported Victoria was furious with David for “spoiling” their children when she’s away on business. The outlet doesn’t know anything about the couple’s marriage or their careers. This latest article is more fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
