A PR worker is under investigation for spreading false gossip about the Beckhams.
The girl messaged her family from work on Friday. Her email was screen-grabbed then shared online, making it public.
Paddy Power then suspended betting on the superstar couple getting a divorce. Sources say the Beckhams are said to be furious at the email.
It is not believed the girl, or her employer, was the origin of the false rumours and it is said she was passing on gossip. London-based brand agency The Communications Store, whose clients include Marks & Spencer and Gordon Ramsay, said it had suspended a worker pending an investigation.
A spokesman said: “In this case, a junior employee was commenting to her family members on gossip that was already circulating on Twitter.
“Although that should never have happened, she did not originate anything.
“The HR team at TCS are dealing with this member of staff in the correct manner.”
