Cover guy Becks slaps down those di­vorce ru­mours

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - OUT AND ABOUT -

DAVID Beck­ham has been per­suaded to ap­pear on the cover of next month’s British Vogue with wife Vic­to­ria – to avoid fur­ther spec­u­la­tion that the cou­ple are set to di­vorce.

I can re­veal that in May, the for­mer Manch­ester United cap­tain in­sisted he would not fea­ture on the front page pic­ture to go along­side a fam­ily in­ter­view in the glossy mag­a­zine.

The shoot, with Posh and their four chil­dren, was ar­ranged to mark 10 years of Vic­to­ria’s fash­ion range. An­noy­ingly for Vogue, Beck­ham agreed to ap­pear on the in­side pages only.

How­ever, af­ter the cou­ple were forced to deny ear­lier this sum­mer that their 19-year mar­riage had hit a rocky patch, David, 43, thought his orig­i­nal de­ci­sion would prompt yet more silly claims. A source said: ‘Af­ter much de­lib­er­a­tion, David de­cided that to avoid even more non­sense...he would go on the cover.’
