Victoria Beckham has opened up about the “hardest period” of her marriage to former football star David in a new Netflix documentary series.

In the four-part series, titled Beckham, the Spice Girl-turned-designer addressed the speculation that David allegedly had an affair while he was playing for Real Madrid in 2003, according to The Sun.


The couple, who married in 1999 and share four children together, have always denied claims of an affair.

In extracts of the documentary shared with The Sun, Victoria spoke about how the allegations impacted their relationship, saying: “It was the hardest period because it felt like the world was against us.


“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.”
