Rebecca Loos has finally broken her silence over the David Beckham ‘affair’ claims.
And if you’ve not already binged the whole thing, here’s the trailer:
The doc synopsis includes: "David Beckham is one of the most known names on the planet, yet few people know who he really is. From his humble working-class beginnings in east London, his drive and determination to win, and the battle to find balance between ambition, love and family, David’s story is one of immense ups and downs.”
Among the themes explored in the docu-series is David’s alleged affair with Rebecca.
Formerly an aide to the football star, she made global headlines back in 2004, claiming to have been his mistress.
David denied the allegations and both he and wife Victoria have pretty much avoided talking about it since.
In BECKHAM, he just spoke about ‘tabloid stories’ and how they left him ‘feeling sick every day’.
And now Rebecca has had her say, telling The Daily Mail: “It's all, 'poor me'. He needs to take responsibility.
"He can say whatever he likes of course, and I understand he has an image to preserve, but he is portraying himself as the victim and he's making me look like a liar, like I've made up these stories.”
Rebecca also criticised how David addressed the rumours: “Yes, the stories were horrible, but they're true.
He talks in the documentary about this ultimately being his private life, shutting it down.
"I think it's one thing to keep your private life to yourself. It's another thing to mislead the public. And so many people had forgotten about all of this.
"So many people put all this behind them, this whole affair, the scandal and everything. And he's dragged it back up again in a way that is affecting my reputation...
“The worse bit for me is that he says he didn't like seeing his wife suffer. That bothered me. Because he's the one that's caused the suffering…
"If you don't want to take responsibility for things because of your family and your children that's absolutely fine.
"And if he had just said it was a tough time for us and moved on I wouldn't be here today.
"But he specifically made it look like… my fault, that he had nothing to do with this."
Rebecca seems to be living her best life anyway, living in Norway for the past 14 years with her partner and has two children.
Working as a medical assistant and teaching yoga, she said: “I t's not like England here, it's much less judgmental.
"I used to get people coming up to me in Waitrose, right in my face, taking pictures of me with their mobiles.
"Here people are cool about it. They don't care. Most of them [Norwegian friends] say, 'Well, I was with a married man once and I did this…' It's like everyone has done something at some point."
