In 2003, David signed a contract with Real Madrid, and the couple moved to Spain with their two children. Dutch model Rebecca Loos became David's personal assistant, but left her role months later. In April 2004, she sold her story to the now-defunct tabloid newspaper, the News of the World, alleging she had a four-month affair with the footballer. Her claims were never corroborated and David denied the allegations as "ludicrous". David released a statement, saying (via E News), "The simple truth is that I am very happily married. I have a wonderful wife and two very special kids. There is nothing any third party can do to change these facts."
A decade later, married Loos told ITV's "Daybreak" that she regretted the way she went about telling her story, but maintained her version of events was correct.
Days after the Netflix "Beckham" documentary was released, in which David spoke of the "horrible stories that were difficult to deal with", Loos gave her review of the docuseries. Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: "He can say whatever he likes of course, and I understand he has an image to preserve, but he is portraying himself as the victim and he's making me look like a liar, like I've made up these stories. He is indirectly suggesting that I'm the one who has made Victoria suffer."
She added: "So many people put all this behind them, this whole affair, the scandal and everything. And he's dragged it back up again in a way that is affecting my reputation..."
Victoria and David's marriage became stronger than ever following the alleged infidelity, and they have not addressed the situation following the Netflix series any further.
