Victoria Beckham and David Beckham are not fighting because he spoils their four kids while she's out of town, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the claim. We're told the story is completely made-up.
"Victoria & David's Parenting Conflict" reads a headline in the latest issue of OK! The accompanying article says the fashion designer, who's been in New York City for her brand, isn't happy about her husband having few rules for their four children - Brooklyn, 20, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 14, and Harper, 7 - while she's away working.
A supposed source tells the magazine, "She doesn't like it one bit and has told David it's got to stop, but he refuses to change his ways. He's insisting that if he's the one holding down the fort, she can butt out." According to the alleged insider, some of the ways David spoils the kids is by taking them on fun day trips and "treating them to endless candy."
The questionable tipster goes on to say that the former soccer star will buy his kids "anything they ask for," including expensive electronic gadgets and designer clothing. "This has been an issue that's caused tension for years," adds the so-called source. "David says he's simply having fun with the kids, but he's going to have a whale of a fight with Victoria when she gets home."
The tabloid's story simply isn't accurate. For starters, David himself has admitted that he and Victoria are both "very strict parents." The former soccer star told the Daily Telegraph, "We want to bring them up as closely as possible to how we were brought up, because you have to give them manners, you have to give them boundaries and our children definitely have that." Victoria shared a similar sentiment last year, telling E! News, "We are strict with the kids. You have to be, but at the same time still allow them to have fun and express themselves." Simply put, the spouses are on the same page when it comes to how to raise their children.
Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the couple, who assures us the tabloid's report is complete nonsense. Of course, we're not surprised by the made-up story. Gossip Cop busted OK! back in November for falsely claiming David and Victoria were in the midst of a $1.2 billion divorce. They're still very much together, and will be celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary in July. The magazine also has zero insight into their family, considering the outlet wrongly reported last year that the Beckhams would be starring on a reality show. This latest article is also a work of fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
