Beckhams Consider Taking Legal Action Over Nanny Story

LATEST: VICTORIA BECKHAM and her soccer ace husband DAVID BECKHAM are considering taking legal action over a British newspaper's claim that their marriage is on the verge of collapse.

The Beckhams are still fuming after a court refused to issue an order barring British tabloid the NEWS OF THE WORLD from publishing allegations by their former nanny ABBIE GIBSON yesterday (24APR05) .

Lawyers for the Beckhams had argued that Gibson's contract included an obligation to not speak about the couple's private life, but the News Of The World said a High Court judge ruled in its favour because the story was in the public interest.

A spokesperson for the Beckhams announced yesterday morning (24APR05), "(We're) consulting our lawyers with a view to taking legal action."

Gibson told the News Of the World she witnessed a series of rows between the Beckhams during her employment at their home from August 2003 until she quit earlier this month (APR05).

Gibson claims Victoria confided that her soccer star husband wanted to bring their marriage to an end.

The News Of The World also published further revelations by beautician DANIELLE HEATH, who had previously claimed she enjoyed an affair with David.
