Beckhams Sue Newspaper

LATEST: England soccer star DAVID BECKHAM and his singer wife VICTORIA are suing British newspaper the NEWS OF THE WORLD after they published claims their marriage is in trouble.

Lawyers for the couple say the 'Posh And Becks On Rocks' article - published in the Sunday tabloid earlier this month (SEP04) - was false and "caused considerable distress to both the couple and their family".

In an official statement, the Beckhams' legal team said, "David and Victoria Beckham today initiated legal proceedings against the News Of The World in relation to an article published on Sunday 12 September 2004.

"The News Of The World was given the opportunity to provide an apology but have chosen not to respond to the couple's request.

The News Of The World's allegations followed intense speculation over the couple's relationship following Beckham's alleged affair with his personal assistant REBECCA LOOS.

Earlier today (22SEP04) the couple released a separate statement, in which the REAL MADRID icon insisted he would never split up from his wife, who is expecting their third child.
