David Beckham took his pop star wife VICTORIA out on a public date yesterday (28SEP03) as the pair considered legal action over reports of their ailing marriage.

The soccer star drove his former SPICE GIRL wife around Madrid in his open top Aston Martin in a public display of affection following reports over the weekend (27/28SEP03) of further discord between the pair.

British newspapers had suggested singer Victoria was upset after David was pictured partying into the early hours in the company of his personal assistant REBECCA LOOS - but the Beckhams are now reportedly considering taking legal action over the latest suggestions their relationship is in trouble.

A friend of the couple tells the DAILY STAR newspaper, "Rebecca and David were with a group of six people the night they were pictured together. Any suggestion anything untoward happened is complete and utter rubbish.

"David and Victoria have already consulted a lawyer."
