After Friday afternoon the rumor was spread on social media that David (43) and Victoria Beckham (44) would announce their divorce in the short term, the spokesmen of the couple dismissed the stories as gossip.
Several British journalists, including BBC journalist Jonny Gould, reported on Twitter that former footballer David and ex-Spice Girl and fashion designer Victoria would be “trending”. There was a hint of adultery by David Beckham.
There were many reactions to these messages. The spokesmen of the couple, who have been married for almost nineteen years, refer the stories to the realm of fiction. “This is fake social media news, ” says the British newspaper The Mirror . “There is no explanation about this and no separation.”
At bookmakers even money was bet on when the divorce would be announced. A spokesman for Paddy Power now announces that the betting office no longer accepts bets on a possible separation of the Beckhams.
