Beckham breaks silence on divorce rumours

VICTORIA Beckham has admitted that speculation about her marriage to David Beckham can be quite "frustrating".

The couple were hit by unfounded claims that their 19-year marriage was on the rocks last year, which the 44-year-old has now described as "annoying".

Discussing the rumours, the fashion designer told the Guardian: "It can get quite frustrating. But I leave it to my PR team. I don't get involved."

She added: "You do have to be quite controlling because people do believe what they read, and when it's completely fabricated, that's really annoying."

The mum-of-four went on to praise her husband for helping run the household while she is busy with her fashion empire.

During the interview she made a point of saying he was "at home in London doing the school run, cooking dinner, helping with homework so that I can be here".

In recent years David has taken on a more hands-on role parenting Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, Harper, seven, while Victoria is busy with work.

The former Spice Girl went on to praise David for his culinary skills - admitting he takes the reigns in that department.

"I never cook," she confessed. "I used to - when we lived in Spain, I used to cook a lot.

"But these days I don't tend to get home till late, so dinner wouldn't be ready till quite late. David's a really good cook."

Last year David added further speculation to the state of their marriage when he described it as "complicated".

In the TV interview on The Sunday Project, David said: "When you've been married for the amount of time that we have, it's always hard work.

"It becomes a little more complicated."
