Victoria Beckham, fashion designer and Spice Girls member, opened up publicly about the rumors for the first time, revealing the toll they took on their relationship.

David Beckham’s transfer to Real Madrid in 2003 separated the family, with Victoria and their eldest sons remaining in England. The distance, coupled with the constant tabloid scrutiny, exacerbated the challenges they faced during this period.
“I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was,” Victoria shared, “and how it affected me.” David added, “Every time that we woke up, we felt, you know, there was something else. I think we both felt at the time that we were not losing each other but drowning.”
Victoria admitted that she resented her husband at the time for the media circus surrounding their lives, describing it as “probably the most unhappy I have ever been in my entire life.”
Despite the immense difficulties, the couple managed to weather this turbulent time in their relationship. David emphasized, “Victoria’s 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. And what we had was worth fighting for.”
The Beckhams’ story of resilience and commitment is a powerful testament to the strength of their bond, which has endured and thrived despite the challenges they faced early in their marriage.
The Netflix docuseries offers viewers a rare and intimate glimpse into the lives of these global icons, shedding light on their journey of love, growth, and the triumph of their enduring relationship.
