Beckham faces new affair allegations
12 April 2004
MADRID – David Beckham has been hit with further allegations surrounding his private life, it was reported Monday.
A second woman has claimed to have had an affair with the Real Madrid player, a Sunday newspaper has said.
Sarah Marbeck told Britain’s News of the World the couple had a two-year fling, which began two years after he wed former Spice Girl Victoria Adams.
The 28-year-old footballer described previous allegations of an affair with his former PA as “ludicrous”.
In a statement, released through his agent last week, Beckham said: “During the past few months I have become accustomed to reading more and more ludicrous stories about my private life.
“The simple truth is that I am very happily married, have a wonderful wife and two very special kids.”
Victoria Beckham watched her husband play for Real Madrid at the Bernabeu stadium on Sunday against Athletico Osasuna.
She had been holidaying at the French ski resort of Courchevel with the couple’s sons, Brooklyn and Romeo.
The newspaper also published an interview with his former assistant Rebecca Loos who has claimed she had an affair with the footballer.
Ms Loos is understood to have sold her story to the News of the World for a six figure sum in a deal involving publicist Max Clifford.
She said she was donating a large sum of her fee to an orphan charity.
