LONDON – The Dutch woman who claims she was David Beckham’s lover says she “felt zilch” for him when they first met, it was reported Friday.
The Real Madrid star’s former personal assistant, Rebecca Loos, 26, said she felt nothing for the England captain when they first met.
But her feelings built as she got to know him – and she said “he is an amazing lover”.
Speaking in her first television interview, she said: “I felt zilch for him. I mean, he is not my type of guy. I never go for looks or, you know, I never go for image-type people. You know, it took a while before that attraction built.”
Asked about how her feelings for Beckham developed from their initial first meeting, Loos said they formed a special bond.
She said: “There was an obvious attraction. We just spent a lot of time together.
“We just built a bond. We connected. We think the same way, we make the same jokes. We make a comment and we laugh and other people don’t. So we had that special connection.”
Loos said she found herself growing closer to the footballing hero in spite of her fears of losing her job.
She said: “I think the chemistry between David and I was so strong that people were aware and people were not happy because I was being very unprofessional. I knew that there was a huge risk involved if I was to get involved sexually with this man – a he was a public figure and I would lose my job.”
Rebecca Loos: My Story was aired on Sky One in the UK on Thursday night.
Beckham has dismissed claims he had an affair with his former employee as “ludicrous”.
