Posh Takes On the Tabs Over Weighty Issue

Say what you want about Victoria Beckham -- that she looks like an alien, that she never smiles, that you wish you could sleep with her husband -- but do not, I repeat, DO NOT insinuate that she has some sort of drug-fueled obsession with her weight.

The super-skinny Spice Girl is reportedly getting ready to sue the U.K. tabloid Now, which claimed Vic was "hooked on sex and diet pills."

"The accusation is dangerous, defamatory and blatantly untrue,"  Posh's rep, Jo Milloy, said Monday. "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."

The story, which is no longer on Now's website, also claimed that Vicki has her sister, Louise, get the diet drugs in Britain then send them to her in a care package in L.A..

Okay, Victoria has made it very clear that she is not hoarding diet pills to keep her slim figure in tact, but she didn't say anything about not being hooked on sex. Then again, if you or I were married to David Beckham....
