| Last updated
On the back of David Beckham’s new Netflix documentary series, interest in Rebecca Loos has risen after rumours of her affair with Beckham.
Back in 2003, Beckham left Manchester United for Real Madrid, which kickstarted the hardest spell of his marriage with Victoria Beckham.
In 2004, Loos claimed she had an affair with Beckham after working as his personal assistant.
During an interview with Sky’s Kay Burley, Loos reportedly said Beckham was an ‘amazing lover’ and that the pair ‘couldn’t keep their hands off each other’.
As per Metro, she added: “We were just locked into each other all night conversation-wise, other people noticed… we just connected. I think the chemistry between David and I was so strong… people were aware and they weren’t very happy.
“He knows how to please. He’s not afraid of a woman’s body. He seems to know what he’s doing.”
In 2021, Loos spoke about the alleged affair to Closer magazine, she said: “I just felt the need to be truthful. Whether you’ve done something that’s right or wrong, it was kind of just eating me up. I was living a lie and keeping secrets.
“Max Clifford [former celebrity agent] said to me he’d negotiate an exclusive with the newspaper and that if I was willing to tell absolutely all the juicy details, then I would get up to five or six hundred thousand pounds. Ridiculous money.”
Since rumours of her affair with Beckham, Loos rose to fame.
Originally born in Spain, Loos gained Dutch citizenship through her dad, a Dutch diplomat.
After becoming famous, Loos has been involved in shows such as The Farm, Extreme Celebrity Detox, Temptation Island and The X Factor: Battle of the Stars.
Since 2012, Loos has been married to Sven Christjar Skaiaa, who was working as a medic on 71 Degrees North when the pair met. They now live in Norway with their two sons.
In response to the affair rumours, Beckham said at the time: “During the past few months I have become accustomed to reading more and more ludicrous stories about my private life.
“The simple truth is that I am very happily married. I have a wonderful wife and two very special kids. There is nothing any third party can do to change these facts.”
