Bec and Lleyton Hewitt Hit Back at False Tabloid Reports
Bec Hewitt has hits back at claims she and her husband Lleyton are ‘growing apart’ because of his ‘party boy behaviour’.
The 33-year-old slammed the magazine reports, saying that “It disappoints me to think that we cannot go out and enjoy a day with friends without it being sabotaged.”
Lleyton also broke his silence, saying the article published was ‘so far away from the truth.’
An insider has claimed tensions between Bec and Lleyton continued to rise as the former tennis star’s alleged gambling and drinking got out of hand.
‘He proceeded to get more and more wasted, while we didn’t even see her with one drink!’ an onlooker told New Idea about the couple’s appearance at the Melbourne Cup earlier this month.
The magazine also claimed Lleyton was ‘obsessed with the gambling side of things’ as he attended the Spring Racing Carnival celebrations inside the Lavazza marquee, for which his wife was an ambassador.
It was also claimed that the former sportsman’s marriage to Bec was on the rocks.
Bec and Lleyton have featured heavily in trashy weekly magazines for years, with speculations often suggesting the couple have broken up or are expecting another baby or whatever seems to be made up that week.
The couple’s manager David Drysdale went on to label the articles as ‘rubbish and fabricated lies’.
‘That is enough!,’ he told the Herald Sun, adding: ‘I have never read so much rubbish and fabricated lies continually written by these trash magazines.’
David continued to voice his disappointment to the newspaper, stating the marriage breakdown claims are ‘laughable’ because Bec and Lleyton are a ‘very loving, close knit unit’.
