Their 13-year marriage is largely considered to be one of the most rock solid of the showbiz world.
But last week, Victoria and David Beckham were rocked by sensational internet rumours claiming he'd had an affair with Katherine Jenkins.
Although both the 32-year-old opera singer and the Beckhams have denied the accusations, Victoria is said to be 'bemused' by the hurtful rumours.
Angry: David and Victoria Beckham are said to have been left 'devastated' by rumours he had an affair with Katherine Jenkins
A source told MailOnline: 'She is bemused by the whole thing.'
Despite the hurt the claims have caused, the 38-year-old fashion designer 'understands' that Katherine would want to clear her name.
The source added: 'Victoria understands why Katherine would want to defend herself against these allegations.'
The superstar couple raise four children together, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, nine, Cruz, seven, and Harper, 13 months
Victoria is now said to be focusing her attention on ensuring her family are not dragged into a 'soap opera' after Katherine took to Twitter to deny the rumours.
A source told LOOK magazine: 'Victoria and David have been through a lot and love each other. There's no way she'd let the family get dragged into a Twitter soap opera.
'The rumours are not true, but that doesn't stop them being hurtful.'
When Katherine publicly denied the claims on her Twitter page last Thursday, she inadvertently drew many people's attention to the rumours they had previously not been aware of.
She said: 'Dear Twitter friends, I've read some horrible rumours on here & want u 2 know I absolutely deny I’ve had an affair with David Beckham.

'The rumours are very hurtful, untrue & my lawyers tell me actionable.
'I’ve only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 & on a night out in the West End in Feb 2012.
'We were out in a group of friends & it was just a normal fun evening out. Just so we are clear I have never been on my own with him and never arranged to meet up.'

This isn't the first time the Beckhams have been rocked by rumours of an affair on David's part.
Most notably, in 2004 they dismissed claims the 37-year-old sportsman had been involved in a four-month romance with his former PA Rebecca Loos as 'ludicrous'.
David said shortly after: 'I do not flirt with other women. I exist only for Victoria.'

But the rumours seemed to have taken their toll on the Spice Girls singer.
She later said: 'I'm not going to lie, it was a really tough time. David and I got through it together.
'No one said marriage was going to be easy. Yes, there have been bumps along the road.
'But the fact is we've come out of everything we've been through stronger and happier.'
Katherine has been single since splitting from her TV presenter fiance, Gethin Jones, in December 2011.
Meanwhile, Victoria and David have been married for 13 years.
They are worth an estimated £125million as a power couple.
