The recent Netflix docuseries, "Beckham," that chronicles the rise of David Beckham as one of the world's most sought-after soccer players, has reignited conversations surrounding allegations of his 2004 infidelity while he was married to Victoria Beckham, a former member of the iconic Spice Girls.

Rebecca Loos, who once served as David Beckham's personal assistant, has found herself under renewed scrutiny after the series touched upon her alleged four-month affair with the soccer star. The rumors began shortly after David's significant move from Manchester United in England to the famed Real Madrid in Spain back in 2003.

Loos Faces Mixed Social Reactions

Post the series' release, social media was abuzz with mixed reactions. Many online users voiced their opinions against Loos, criticizing her decision to discuss an affair that is nearly two decades old.

However, Loos, currently embracing a peaceful life as a yoga and meditation instructor, drew strength from positive feedback on her Instagram. A picture of her in a meditative yoga pose was accompanied by the caption: "Letting go and finding strength in the mountains of life." Supporters rallied around her, with one commenting, "Some of the comments on here are disgusting!!!

Stay strong." They further lauded her life away from the limelight, saying her happiness doesn't hinge on the approval of streaming giants like Netflix. In the much-talked-about documentary, neither David nor Victoria overtly identify Loos as the catalyst for the rough patch in their marriage.

However, Victoria candidly expressed her feelings: "Did I resent David? If I am being totally honest, yes I did." She talked about the challenges she faced, staying in England with their sons while David played in Madrid.

This period, she shared, felt like "the world was against us." Recounting their time in Spain, Victoria recalled feeling isolated. "It was an absolute circus," she said. "Everyone loves it when the circus comes to town, right? Unless you’re in it." David vehemently denied all allegations, reinforcing his commitment to his family and their marriage.

Directed by Fisher Stevens, "Beckham" features interviews from both David and Victoria, their close family, and David's ex-teammates, tracing the trajectory of his illustrious career. David and Victoria Beckham, who tied the knot in 1999, are doting parents to their four children: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper. The couple's resilience and commitment to their family stand as a testament to their bond.
