David Beckham did ‘come clean’ over Rebecca Loos in Netflix doc – but ‘things were cut’

David Beckham did ‘come clean’ over the Rebecca Loos scandal in his Netflix documentary, according to director Fisher Stevens.

The ex England footballer, 48, made no direct reference to the alleged affair and did not admit to any guilt in the hit four-part series – though he did speak about the ‘horrible’ fallout that made him feel ‘sick every day’. His former assistant Rebecca, 46, has since come out to accuse the dad-of-four of making her 'look like a liar' by skirting around the subject.

However, documentary director Fisher said he believes David did come clean over the scandal. He also said, however, there were some other things he had to cut out because “David just wouldn't go there”.

Fisher opened up on making the Beckham documentary when he appeared on the WTF podcast with Marc Maron. When discussing the show, host Marc spoke of 'tabloidisation of the affairs or the assumed affairs, which he diplomatically… not even diplomatically, which he didn't handle'.

Marc added: “He didn't come clean in the doc.” But Fisher replied: “He did.”

Marc, referencing David’s wife Victoria Beckham, then said: “Well whatever they were able to survive in that was a testament to whatever that family was made out of, and what she's made out of.”

Earlier in the podcast, Fisher also told Marc that there were some topics that David refused to discuss.

"It was tricky," he said. "There was other things I had to cut out because David just wouldn't go there with me."

When Marc suggested it might be because David was British, Fisher replied: “They are… very repressed. The guy never looks back.”

In 2004, football icon David was hit with claims he had an affair with Rebecca, who alleged she had a relationship with him while he was playing in Spain for Real Madrid. The former Manchester United midfielder described the claims as "ludicrous" at the time.

Victoria and David both appeared to finally address the scandal in their Netflix series – though Rebecca was not mentioned by name. However, the Beckhams opened up about how the allegations impacted their relationship – with Victoria admitting "we were against each other".

In her first response to the series, Rebecca told The Mail on Sunday: "It's all, 'poor me'. He needs to take responsibility.

"He can say whatever he likes of course and I understand he has an image to preserve, but he is portraying himself as the victim and he's making me look like a liar, like I've made up these stories."

In the documentary, director Fisher Stevens asked David: "Multiple tabloid stories broke, and how did you deal with that?"

The dad-of-four replied: "There were some horrible stories that were difficult to deal with. It was the first time that me and Victoria had been put under that kind of pressure in our marriage."

Former Spice Girl Victoria, 49, added in the series: "It was the hardest period for us. Because it felt like the world was against us. And here's the thing; we were against each other, if I'm being completely honest.”
