MADRID – Despite his alleged affair with Rebecca Loos, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has finally agreed to move to Spain to live with her husband David, it was reported Friday.
The Real Madrid star revealed the couple had already found a new home in Madrid for the entire family. Victoria, 30, is to re-launch her singing career from the Spanish capital.
The England captain issued a statement to dramatically quash speculation that he was about to quit Spain for a big-money deal at Chelsea.
"I have a long-term commitment to Real and to my life in Spain," Beckham said.
I’ve been here for one season and it feels like the job is not done yet. The support that I have received from the fans has been amazing and I would like to see them repaid with success. Victoria shares my vision of our life here together."
It is thought that Beckham, 29, made the decision after finally persuading Victoria to join him with sons Brooklyn, five, and Romeo, 20 months.
The former Spice said: "The time is now right for the children to move to Madrid and we are all looking forward to it enormously".
The statement also revealed Brooklyn will be enrolled at a Spanish school.
Frequent separations since Beckham's move from Manchester United last year have been blamed for the couple’s marital problems.
But sources say Victoria decided it was essential to be together after allegations that David had an affair with former PA Rebecca Loos, the daughter of a Dutch diplomat.
Loos later sold her story by giving interviews to Sky TV and Dutch broadcaster SBS, where she has also appeared as a guest presenter of the entertainment show Shownieuws.
Beckham has officially denied the affair, but it has been alleged by publications in the UK that he confessed it to his wife and asked for forgiveness.
