Recent rumors that David Beckham and Victoria Beckham are heading for a divorce are all the fault of their fellow celebrity couple, Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
Earlier this week, the Sun, via the Mirror, reported that David Beckham and Victoria Beckham’s marriage of 16 years is under a strain. Their source explained that the pair were living “increasingly separate lives,” while the insider then went on to insist that Victoria Beckham didn’t approve of David Beckham’s new choice of friends, especially Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
However, the Mirror’s own source close to Victoria Beckham has insisted that all of this speculation is completely wide of the mark, insisting that David Beckham isn’t even friends with the actor and model.
They declared, “It’s nonsense. David isn’t even friends with Jason and Rosie. The family were together for seven weeks on holiday recently. It’s all rubbish.”
These rumors were then exacerbated when it was spotted that Victoria Beckham’s tattoo tribute to her husband had been removed. This sighting was made when Victoria Beckham made an appearance at the New York Fashion Week on Monday.
Previously, the 41-year-old mother of Brooklyn Beckham, Cruz Beckham, Romeo Beckham, and Harper Beckham had a Hebrew tattoo that read “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine” on her back, which went all the way down her spine, from her neck to the middle of her back.
An insider told the Sun, via the Daily Mail, that the former Spice Girls singer was completely embarrassed by the ink, while it was even remarked that she’s decided to get rid of them because she wants to be taken more seriously in the fashion industry.
The insider remarked, “Victoria seems embarrassed about her tattoos — probably because she thinks they’re cheap and tacky.”
The source then added that she was surprised Victoria had decided to get rid of the tattoos, especially since they had such a strong “sentimental meaning to her.”
They explained, “But it’s still surprising she would so readily get rid of ones that had such sentimental meaning to her in the past.”
In fact, Victoria Beckham has even told her eldest son, Brooklyn, that she doesn’t want him to get tattoos, even though his father, David, is covered in them.
The source added, “She’s been very firm about it even though David obviously doesn’t feel the same way about his.”
