Former assistant to football superstar David Beckham, Rebecca Loos, has confirmed the truthfulness of stories portrayed in the self-titled Netflix documentary. However, Loos criticized Beckham for portraying her as dishonest and called on him to take responsibility for the consequences that occurred almost two decades ago. In an exclusive interview with dailymail.co.uk, Loos said, “He needs to take responsibility… 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.”
Almost 20 years ago, Loos caused a media frenzy when she revealed details about her relationship with Beckham. The four-part Netflix documentary “Beckham” premiered on October 4 and has attracted an impressive 3.8 million viewers since its release. The first episode alone drew in 3,813,100 viewers, according to the Broadcasters Audience Research Board (BARB).
The media buzz surrounding Beckham’s alleged affair with Loos led to Victoria Beckham breaking her silence on October 4. The former Spice Girl described it as the “hardest” period of her life, especially as reports suggested that her husband and his assistant grew close while he played for Real Madrid in Spain. “100 per cent. It was the hardest period for us. Because it felt like the world was against us,” Victoria confessed. She added, “Here’s the thing, we were against each other, if I’m being completely honest. Up until Madrid sometimes it felt like us against everybody else but we were together, we were connected, we had each other… But when we were in Spain, it didn’t really feel like we had each other either. And that’s sad. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was. And how it affected me.”
Beckham himself described the stories as “horrible” and stated that they made him feel sick every day. Reflecting on how they managed to survive the crisis, he said, “I don’t know how we got through it, in all honesty. Victoria is everything to me, to see her hurt was incredibly difficult, but we’re fighters, and at that time, we needed to fight for each other, we needed to fight for our family.”
As for Loos, she has since moved on and is now living a quiet life in the mountains of Norway with her husband and two sons.
