Rebecca Loos, David Beckham’s former assistant, has responded to an avalanche of negative comments on social media after her alleged affair with the former football star was highlighted in her recent docuseries.
The four-part Netflix series, aptly titled “Beckham,” looked at his rise as one of soccer’s most sought-after players, in addition to his life off the field with another world-famous celebrity , his wife Victoria Beckham.
Affair allegations hit the couple in 2003 after David was traded from Manchester United in England to Real Madrid in Spain. In 2004, Loos reported an alleged four-month relationship with the footballer.
Loos, who is now a yoga and meditation teacher, found strength in supportive comments on her Instagram page after some social media users attacked her character for discussing the alleged affair nearly 20 years ago.

“Some comments here are disgusting!!! Stay strong,” one user wrote. “You have a beautiful life with your beautiful family who, unlike others, don’t need to fill in the gaps involving Netflix!!!”
“Thank you,” Loos replied with a praying hands emoji before adding, “I take nasty comments with as much humor as possible.”
Fox News Digital has contacted Loos and the Beckhams for comment.
In the documentary, neither Victoria nor David directly names Loos as the woman responsible for the difficult period in their marriage.
“Did I blame David? If I’m being completely honest, yes, I did,” Victoria said. The former Spice Girl did not immediately move to Spain and chose to stay in England to raise their young sons while David played football in Madrid, a choice heavily scrutinized by fans and the media.
“It was probably, if I’m honest, the most unhappy time I’ve ever experienced in my life. It’s not that I felt ignored because I chose to internalize a lot of it because I was always aware of how important it was to him,” she explained.

“It was the hardest time because we felt like the world was against us,” Victoria said. “Here’s the thing: we were against each other, if I’m completely honest. You know, up until Madrid, sometimes it felt like we were against everyone, but we were together, we were connected, we had each other.”
She added: “But when we were in Spain, we didn’t feel like we were together either. And it’s sad. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was and how it affected me.”
“It was a real circus – and everyone loves it when the circus comes to town, right? Unless you’re there,” she said.

David denied all allegations and released a statement saying he was “very happily married” and had two children. “No third party can do anything to change these facts,” he said at the time.
“I don’t know how we got through it, in all honesty,” David said in the documentary. “Victoria is everything to me, seeing her injured was incredibly difficult, but we are fighters and at that time we had to fight for each other, we had to fight for our family.
“And what we had was worth fighting for.”
Directed by Fisher Stevens, “Beckham” included interviews with David and Victoria, David’s parents and former teammates throughout his decades-long career.
The couple married in 1999 and have four children: Brooklyn Beckham, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.
