In 2003, David was traded to Real Madrid, forcing the Beckhams to move to Spain. As a result, they hired Rebecca as his personal assistant. Then, in April 2004, Rebecca alleged that she and David had an affair. "He was incredibly lonely, very lonely. He was suffering in a way, he really missed his family,'' she told BSkyB Television. "I felt like I was helping him, that I was there for him, and that I was giving him what he needed and what he was missing in a way." Well, that's one way to be an "assistant." The Beckhams, however, have denied Rebecca's claims.
