LATEST: Victoria Beckham and her ENGLAND soccer ace husband David Beckham have decided to go ahead with legal action against their former nanny, after talking counsel with their lawyers.

The Beckhams, who live in Madrid, took the decision after failing to win a court order banning British tabloid the NEWS OF THE WORLD from publishing an interview with former employee ABBIE GIBSON in which she alleged they are on the brink of divorce.

A spokesman says, "The Beckhams will be commencing legal proceedings against their former nanny, Abbie Gibson, for breach of confidence.

"They will also be applying to the courts to amend their outstanding action commenced last year against the News Of The World to include all of these issues by way of seeking aggravated damages."

The Beckhams' relationship came under close scrutiny last year (04) following tabloid allegations that David enjoyed an affair with his personal assistant REBECCA LOOS - a claim he dismissed as "ludicrous".
