LONDON: It was, for a few brief hours, the love split that enthralled the nation. And no one, it seems, was more surprised than the pair supposedly breaking up.

When Victoria Beckham saw the social media rumours about her marriage at the weekend, she jokingly asked husband David, in America: “Are you divorcing me?”

At home in London when she saw the bizarre claims branded “laughable and embarrassing” Victoria was said to be bemused but cracked jokes about it.

A friend of the couple said: “Victoria was taken aback, but she found the whole thing very funny. They have had a sense of humour about this because it’s so ridiculous.

“They are stunned that so many people believed it, and that it spread so quickly. They have no idea where or how it started. It’s quite the mystery.”

The rumours began on Friday after Victoria, 44, posted a picture on Instagram cuddling her daughter Harper, 6, with the caption: "So much love." Shortly afterwards, a high street bookmaker suspended betting on the pair divorcing. - Mail On Sunday
