Beckhams issue statement following divorce rumours

They are not breaking up, people!

David and Victoria Beckham have felt compelled to issue a statement following a social media meltdown over the state of  their marriage, with wild theories the couple is about to announce their plans to divorce.

His rep says: “There is no statement due or divorce. This is just fake social media news.

“This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time. There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news.”

Meanwhile, it’s business as usual for the family. Victoria has been inundated with gushing comments after sharing a sweet snap of herself with daughter Harper on Instagram.

The fashion designer posted the image on Friday morning showing her six-year-old ready to go to school in her blue and white uniform.

Victoria, 44, bends down to give her a hug before she goes, with the little girl cuddling her back tightly while smiling for the camera.

“Beautiful photo one for the mantle place,” one told her.

“Lovely picture of mum and daughter,” said another.

Others described the image as “super gorgeous”, “so cute” and “wonderful”.
