Victoria offers Cheryl place to stay

Victoria offers Cheryl place to stay

Victoria Beckham has reportedly offered Cheryl Cole a place to stay as she copes with the latest stories to rock her marriage.

The former Spice Girl - who lives in Los Angeles with her soccer star husband David and their three sons, Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, seven, and four-year-old Cruz - is said to have called the Girls Aloud beauty to console her after raunchy photos of her Chelsea player spouse Ashley ended up sent to a glamour model's mobile phone.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Victoria just wants to make sure Cheryl is OK. The offer's there - and you can't get a more relaxing and private environment than Vic's Los Angeles home.

"If Cheryl needs some time to think and reflect, the Beckhams' is the place to go."

Cheryl - who became friendly with Victoria during the 2006 soccer World Cup in Germany, in which both their husbands were in the England squad - is reportedly furious after the explicit photos were sent to single mother-of-two Sonia Wild in June 2008, from Ashley's unregistered pay-as-you-go mobile phone.

However, the soccer star - who is out of action for three months after breaking an ankle - insists he did not send them and instead lent his phone to a friend, who gave it to another pal, who then sent the raunchy images.

He said: "I gave a phone away that still had stuff in its memory. I thought I had deleted it. I can't believe I did it and would laugh if my foot did not hurt so much."

Friends say the news is a huge blow to Cheryl as the couple have been rebuilding the trust in their relationship following claims in 2008 that Ashley had cheated on her with a hairdresser.

A spokesperson for the couple insists everything is fine between them.
