Victoria Beckham and David Beckham are headed for a split after getting into a big fight at the royal wedding earlier this month? That's the claim in one of this week's tabloids. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
"Posh & Becks Epic Wedding Blow-Up!" reads the latest cover of the Australian version of OK! The accompanying article says the former Spice Girl was in a bad mood at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding because she and her husband had been arguing in the weeks leading up to it. A so-called "source" tells the magazine, "They actually had been fighting so much in the run up to the wedding that they almost didn't go." The unreliable outlet doesn't mention what the supposed animosity was all about.
The tabloid further contends that the couple started bickering as soon as they got to the church because the first thing David did was compliment Amal Clooney's outfit. "That went over like a lead balloon," says the questionable insider, who goes on to say that Victoria became "furious" when she discovered they weren't seated in the VIP area of the ceremony.
"She totally blamed David for this," says the seemingly phony tipster. "[She said,] 'We are like unwelcome black sheep at this wedding and it's your fault!'" The alleged source concludes that the spouses of nearly 20 years will split sooner than later. "David always promised he would wait until their kids all left home to divorce Posh, but I think he will quietly move out and just live apart from her for a while," says the supposed insider.
This bogus story is based on information from an anonymous and untraceable "source," but the couple's own spokesperson tells Gossip Cop on the record there's no truth to any of it. We're assured the spouses never had any sort of argument at the royal wedding, nor are they headed for a split. In fact, Victoria herself described the royal wedding as "the best day."
Another aspect of the magazine's article that's provably false is the notion that the former pop star complained about not being seated in the ceremony's VIP section. Earlier this week, Victoria revealed she sat in the front row at Prince Harry and Markle's wedding. It doesn't get much more VIP than that.
This bogus story may have been written because some people on social media criticized the former Spice Girl for not smiling in photos taken at the nuptials. Victoria responded to the backlash with a Instagram photo of herself posing stoically, along with the caption, "When you're smiling on the inside..." Regardless of the reason for the tabloid publishing its bogus account of events, a rep for the Beckhams confirms it's all fabricated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
