Rebecca Loos found herself in the very centre of a media frenzy back in 2003 after alleging she had an affair with David Beckham.
But, speaking in the brand-new Beckham Netflix doc, they have broken their silence on his alleged 'affair' with former glamour model Rebecca, saying the media attention at the time was the 'hardest period' for both of them. Have a look:
At one point, Victoria, 49, appears to allude to her husband’s alleged 'affair' - saying there was one time that saw her at her ‘most unhappy’.
The couple have previously denied that David, 48, had an affair when he was playing for Real Madrid in 2003 after the rumour mill went haywire after Rebecca, who was 26 at the time, was pictured with then 28-year-old footy star inside a nightclub.
While they didn’t speak about the alleged extra-marital relationship in the new docu-series, they did address the media fallout at the time.
"It was the hardest period because it felt like the world was against us," she said. "Here’s the thing – we were against each other if I’m being completely honest.
"You know, up until Madrid sometimes it felt like us against everybody else but we were together, we were connected, we had each other.
"But when we were in Spain, it didn’t really feel like we had each other either.
"And that’s sad. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was and how it affected me. It was a nightmare.
"It was an absolute circus — and everyone loves it when the circus comes to town right? Unless you’re in it."
When asked if she 'resented' David, Victoria said: "If I’m being totally honest, yes I did. It was the most unhappy I have ever been in my entire life."
She went on to say that she 'internalised' a lot of trauma as a means of supporting her husband’s career.
"It wasn’t that I felt unheard because I was always mindful of the focus that he needed," Victoria said.
Now, some two decades after the media storm - many of us will be wondering just where on earth 46-year-old Rebecca, who once worked as David's PA, is and what she's up to.
Well, for starters, she's relocated to Norway and has seemingly swapped out a life in the headlines for a more nomadic lifestyle teaching yoga at a retreat with her new husband, Norwegian doctor Sven Christjar Skaiaa.
The pair welcomed their first child just five years on from the 'affair' scandal in 2008 and married by 2012.
They then had a second child together and relocated to mountain village, Hemsedal, to start a brand-new life.
It seems miles away from the life of stardom, reality TV shows, Playboy shoots and one particularly controversial appearance in Channel 5's The Farm back in 2004.
However, Rebecca does still document her life to her 20.8k followers on Instagram where she can be seen enjoying walks out in nature, practicing some yoga poses and walking her dogs.
Opening up about her new life, Rebecca said via MailOnline: "I am so happy with my life now. Many people are so afraid of change.
"Change is good, change is how you learn, people should just f**king go for it.
"I like the way my life has taken me. If I hadn't been famous, I would not have been invited on the TV show where I met my husband Sven and had my lovely boys. I would not have had the life I have now."
While admitting she 'took a lot of wrong decisions' and 'got talked in to a lot of things', the mum-of-two revealed: "Of course if I could go back in time I might change some things, but wouldn’t everyone?
"I have no regrets."
Beckham is available to stream on Netflix now.
