Victoria Beckham PICTURE EXCLUSIVE: Posh looks sombre in London after divorce rumours

Victoria Beckham was pictured looking sombre as she was seen for the first time since furiously denying claims she is set to divorce her husband of 19 years, David.

In pictures obtained exclusively by MailOnline, the 44-year-old designer was seen leaving a boutique hotel in the upmarket district of Mayfair in London on Saturday, making a quick exit as she hurried into her car. 

As the mother-of-three was in the English capital, her husband, 43, was more than 5,000 miles away in Los Angeles on a business trip, and was spotted casually shopping solo on Saturday afternoon around Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade area, where he stopped in the Vans Store for a snap with a female fan.

Their respective outings came after they were forced to shoot down rumours of an impending divorce.

After rumors of an impending split began racing around social media on Friday, Jo Milloy, a spokesman for Spice Girl-turned-designer Victoria, told the Daily Mail that the gossip was ‘absolute nonsense’.

Meanwhile former England football captain’s spokesman, Simon Oliveira, likewise dubbed the claims ‘embarrassing and laughable’.

Elsewhere, a spokesman for the couple was quoted as saying: ‘There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news. This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.’ The rumours were ‘a crock of s***’, he said. 

Since the rumours began to circulate, Victoria has been enjoying some quality time with her family, sharing several snaps with her brood on social media. However, she was on her own as she left a hotel in London on Friday with a strained expression. 

The mother-of-four looked typically chic for the outing, teaming an oversized blue shirt with a pair of figure-hugging leather trousers that accentuated her lean legs, whilst also donning her trademark towering heels. 

Whilst she may have dressed to impress for the outing, Victoria failed to muster a smile for the outing, a far cry from her husband’s beaming grin across the pond when he was pictured posing with a fan. 

The glowing brunette fan was even sporting a Manchester United cap, signalling her true devotion to the team’s former star midfielder.

According to a source, David was in a great mood and gladly posed for the pictures, with no signs of trouble two days after he and wife Victoria shot down rumors of an impending divorce. 

Claims the couple were planning to divorce circulated on social media earlier on Friday, prompting high street bookmaker Paddy Power to suspend betting on them separating. Paddy Power’s move came despite there having been no suggestion the couple were having any marriage difficulties. 

David married Victoria wed in 1999, and the couple have four children together: Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13, and Harper, six.

The retired footballer player was in the US for a business trip earlier in the week to Miami to discuss his impending Major League Soccer team there. Yet, his time in Miami wasn’t notable, a source told ‘He was in for a meeting with his business partner in the soccer deal,’ the source said. ‘It was a quick in and out trip.’

David’s lawyers were in court in Miami on Tuesday as the county was fighting for the right to sell his ownership group land for his new stadium. While he didn’t make an appearance in court, he was probably in town for updates or to scout other property for his impending soccer stadium.

David secured the rights to Miami’s MLS expansion team as part of his 2007 contract with the LA Galaxy, and exercised his option to pay $25million for the new franchise in 2014.

Initially scheduled to launch for 2016 or 2017, the yet unnamed team has faced financing and stadium deal delays, and may begin play in 2020.

Meanwhile, Victoria has been enjoying some quality family time back in England, and took to Instagram on Saturday to share a sweet snap with  sons Romeo and Cruz as well as daughter Harper and her parents Jackie and Tony Adams. 

The doting mother-of-four – who is also famed for her eponymous fashion line – put on a typically chic display as she was clad in a pair of patent trousers and a white tee, tied in with pointed red stilettos.

Victoria beamed with delight as she embraced her youngest child Harper, who flashed a wide grin for the adorable image. Second son Romeo bore a resemblance to Cruz, as the brothers both sported white T-shirts and dark-wash bottoms. Victoria captioned the image: ‘Fun dinner x kisses from us all x.’  

David also returned to social media following the scandal as he promoted his grooming brand House 99 with a typically dashing snap on Instagram on Friday. In the black and white image, the football icon posed up a storm as he displayed his heavily-inked physique in a form-fitting T-shirt.  

Plugging his brand new collection, the father-of-four captioned the image: ‘@House99 is gearing up, share your #GameReady looks.’

Shortly before his post, the former Manchester United ace shared his condolences following the death of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, who was found dead from a suicide on Friday.

He took to his Instagram story: ‘Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you.’ 

The touching message continued: ‘It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.’ David ended the note with ‘Rest in peace Anthony’, alongside a folded hands emoji.
