Soccer pro David Beckham has proven that actions speak louder than words after he officially denied prostitute accusations by suing the tabloid that published them.  PopEater reports that Beckham is suing In Touch Weekly for featuring quotes from former call girl Irma Nici suggesting that the two slept together in 2007.  The suit alleges libel, slander and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  Beckham has been married to former Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham for 11 years, and the two have three boys together, ages 11, 8, and 5.

If you’re falsely accused of cheating, what do you do?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes someone close to you might hear or see something that gives them the wrong idea about your faithfulness.  Cupid has some tips on how to clear up the situation:

1. Ask why: If someone started a rumor, talk to that person one-on-one to find out why.  They might just be angry about something, and talking to them will help clear the air and stop them from spreading more false rumors.

2. Reassure him: If you can, get your supposed cheating partner to tell your partner that the accusations are false.  When he gets reassurance from both you and the other person involved, he’ll be more likely to believe that nothing is going on.

3. Show proof: There’s nothing like cold, hard evidence to prove you’re telling the truth.  If the rumors say you went out with your mystery boy on Friday night, but you were with your best friend the whole time, the piece of gossip is officially dead.
