Coleen Rooney, the wife of former English football legend Wayne Rooney, played a pivotal role in supporting Victoria Beckham during a tumultuous period in her marriage to David Beckham. This crisis had erupted due to alleged infidelity and an affair with Rebecca Loos, a situation that bore striking parallels to Coleen's own painful experience when her husband's alleged affair became headline news both in Britain and internationally.

The recent Netflix documentary series, "Beckham," has brought to light a multitude of explosive revelations about the beloved Beckham family. One of the most attention-grabbing moments was Victoria's candid admission that this period marked the unhappiest time in her life and the most challenging phase in her marriage.

During this tumultuous period, Coleen emerged as a pillar of support and confidante for Victoria. Standing steadfastly by Victoria's side during the Rebecca Loos scandal, Coleen offered her unwavering support. Moreover, she continued to provide solace and companionship as Victoria revisited those painful memories for the documentary.

David Beckham's move

Allegations of an affair between David Beckham and Rebecca Loos first emerged shortly after David's move to Spain in 2003 to play for Real Madrid. Rebecca had been working as his personal assistant during that time.

When the scandal erupted, the football icon released just one statement in response, dismissing the reports of the affair as "absurd." He strongly emphasized his contentment in his marriage, highlighting his "happiness with a wonderful wife and two extraordinary children." Notably, Wayne Rooney joined Manchester United a year after David's departure from England for Real Madrid.

However, even before their husbands' professional paths crossed, Coleen Rooney and Victoria Beckham were acquainted. Subsequently, they became integral members of the renowned group of WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends) who enthusiastically supported their husbands and the English national team during the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Their camaraderie and shared experiences deepened their friendship during this remarkable period.
