The former Spice Girl reveals how she handles the dark side of fame

Victoria Beckham has got used to handling bad press over the years, but she’s still not immune to critcism.

‘It’s never nice when people write hurtful things and much as I say I

don’t see it, I’m not stupid,’ she says.

‘But I’d rather turn anger into energy. I suppose if I really cared what people say I’d have topped myself years

ago.’

The former Spice Girl, 36, had to face unsubstantiated allegations in a US magazine last summer that David, 35, slept with a prostitute back in 2007 – a claim that the former England football captain has branded ‘wholly unfounded’.

‘I don’t know if I’m balanced or deluded. I don’t mean about David – him, I trust completely because we’re both such talkers – but I am quite spiritual,’ Victoria tells Vogue.

‘I’ve seen both sides of fame and I realise that it’s brought me a lot of opportunities. I’m a positive person.’
