Victoria Beckham has reportedly spoken out about rumours that she was planning to divorce husband David Beckham.
Football icon David, 43, and Spice Girls singer Victoria, 44, were hit by split rumours earlier this year.
Reports of the couple’s split came after social media hearsay spurred bookmakers to slash odds on the pair divorcing this year.

A spokesperson for the couple hit out at the claims, branding them “a crock of s**t.”
The Sun now claims that Victoria has opened up to Vogue magazine about the moment she told her and David’s children about the rumours.
In an interview to be published later this month to celebrate Victoria’s 10th anniversary in the fashion world, she reportedly said that she and David sat down with their children to reassure them that they were staying together.
It is believed that Victoria, who is said to have once again put a halt to a Spice Girls reunion, told Brooklyn Beckham, 19, Romeo Beckham, 16, Cruz Beckham, 13, and seven year old Harper Beckham: “Dad’s not a cheat.”
David has also been interviewed for the piece to celebrate the milestone but it is thought that he only discussed Victoria’s business.
A friend of the Beckhams told The Sun: “Allegations about the state of their marriage and ridiculous claims about David are extremely hurtful, and obviously potentially very distressing for the kids.
“Whilst publicly they maintained a united front by laughing off the rumours, behind closed doors they’ve taken them much more seriously.
“They sat the children down and addressed these horrific, hurtful whispers. Both David and Victoria are very transparent with the kids to ensure they hear things directly from them — and not from the playground.
“After the latest furore, they once again took the decision to be open and honest with them, reassuring them Daddy is not a cheat.”
