David and Victoria Beckham are said to have secretly caught CORONAVIRUS while partying in LA.
According to a new report, the couple feared they were ‘SUPER-SPREADERS’ after flying back to the UK for son Brooklyn’s 21st birthday before jetting back over to America, to spend time in Miami.
It has been claimed that it was here that the football legend began to feel unwell, with his designer wife developing a sore throat and a high temperature soon after.

A source told The Sun: ‘It was an absolute nightmare scenario,’ explaining how David was in LA schmoozing on behalf of his club Inter Miami, when Victoria and their children flew over to support him.
‘They attended a couple of swanky networking events as David had promotional duties, and were shaking hands and kissing fans and various club dignitaries,’ claimed the insider.
The footballer and the former Spice Girl then flew back to London where they went to their Cotswolds estate to celebrate their eldest son’s 21st birthday in style.
The couple then flew to Miami, which is when David reportedly started to feel unwell and soon after Victoria developed a sore throat and a high temperature.

The source claimed that several of the Beckhams’ team, including drivers, bodyguards and PAs – also fell ill, ‘a couple of them very badly so’.
According to the insider, Victoria ‘really panicked’ and forced the entire family to quarantine rigidly for more than the required two week period, defined by the UK government.
‘She was utterly petrified they might be super-spreaders, and did all she could to minimise all future risk,’ said the source.
David Beckham’s representatives declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.
