Victoria Beckham is reportedly gearing up to sue the U.K. magazine Now over an article that claimed she was "hooked on sex and diet pills."
"The accusation is dangerous, defamatory and blatantly untrue," 34-year-old Beckham's agent Jo Milloy said Monday, referring to the latter half of that statement.
"Victoria takes her position as a role model to young women very seriously and is horrified by this hurtful, fabricated story. It is now with her lawyers."
Now's story also claimed that the former Spice Girl's sister, Louise, has been acquiring the pills for her in Britain and then shipping them to the U.S.
Beckham, also known as Posh Spice of the Spice Girls, has denied using unhealthy means to achieve her famously slim physique.
"As you can see, I'm a normal-looking girl, and I just make the best of what I have. I'm not out-of-the-ordinary-looking at all — I'm incredibly ordinary," the mother of three told Allure magazine last month.
