The Guardian has the following story on its site today. I posited this theory on Tuesday’s Steve Wright Show on BBC Radio 2. Catch up guys.
Max Clifford held discussions with David Beckham’s former personal assistant Rebecca Loos as long ago as January with a view to selling her story, OnMediaGuardian.co.uk can reveal.
The PR consultant has consistently denied any official involvement in Ms Loos’ �300,000 deal with the News of the World, which last weekend published a series of text messages purportedly sent between Beckham and his former employee.
In fact, sources say Mr Clifford received �60,000 for his role in brokering a deal with the editor of the News of the World, Andy Coulson, but concealed his own involvement to give the story more credibility
