Victoria Beckham considering legal action against Now

Victoria Beckham is considering legal action against IPC Media’s celebrity weekly Now following a story claiming she uses diet pills.

According to American gossip website, Beckham’s publicist said: ‘”The accusation by Now Magazine (Aug 10) that Victoria Beckham is taking any kind of slimming pill is dangerous, defamatory and blatantly untrue. Victoria takes her position as a role model to young women very seriously and is horrified by this hurtful, fabricated story. It is now in the hand of her lawyers.”

In June last year Beckham won  ‘substantial’undisclosed libel damages from New magazine following a story headed ‘Posh Breaks down – Why Does Everyone Hate Me?”, in which an insider was quoted as describing her as ‘coming off as a grade A bitch.”
