The Beckhams Deny Car Crash Story

Victoria and David Beckham have lashed out at reports stating they had been involved in a "terrifying car crash" - insisting the incident never happened.

The showbiz couple were reportedly visiting their home in the village of Bargemon, close to the French Riviera, last week (18Aug08) before the soccer star was due to fly to Beijing, China to take part in the Olympics closing ceremony on Sunday (24Aug08).

And as the pair made their way to Nice airport so the star could catch his plane to China, the pair was involved in a horrific crash - which left their black BMW with a smashed windscreen and extensive damage along the passenger side.
Reports stated David Beckham reportedly smashed the car laterally into a wall - leaving his wife severely shaken, with speculation the accident occurred due to paparazzi hounding the couple.

But the couple's spokesperson, Cheryl Maisel, has denied the crash ever happened, blaming online gossips for the false story.

She says, "There was no car crash. David and Victoria Beckham were driving a car that had been scratched the day before when it had been left parked at the airport - they were not involved in any accident at all".

"There was no police, no crash, no paparazzi chase, etc. - just very incorrect reports via Internet gossip sites."

I have gone back to find out where the story originated from, and it was a Fox News website, then Perez Hilton, then everyone else picked it up.

I guess that this will just put a end to the story.

yeah i think their spokesperson was right, it wasn't true.
If its true, David's reaction on Beijing shouldn't be that happy, am i right? He should be worried about her wife if thats the situation.
They were just bidding goodbye.
Though their car was so messed up.

*People are just making stories.
Thats what showbiz do..
