David and Victoria Beckham put on an united front in their first public appearance since Rebecca Loos spoke out about her alleged affair with the footballer.
The pair were joined by friends and loved ones as they headed for dinner in Miami on Monday night, including son Brooklyn Beckham and his wife Nicola Peltz, and Lionel Messi and his wife Antonela Roccuzzo.
Victoria, 49, wowed in a plunging mini dress for the outing, showing off her ample cleavage and toned legs in the skimpy number.
Sartorially in sync with his wife; David, 48, also took the plunge as he donned an unbuttoned shirt and smart trousers.
The couple held hands on the outing as they made their first outing after Rebecca spoke exclusively to The Mail On Sunday about her affair with David.

Showing their support: Joining the family on the outing were Lionel Messi and his wife Antonela Roccuzzo
Joining the family on the outing were Lionel – who plays for David’s Inter Miami CF team – and his stunning wife Antonela who wowed in a white two-piece.
Teammate Sergio Busquets was also in attendance with his wife Elena Galera.
Brooklyn and Nicola looked more loved-up than ever on the outing with the aspiring chef, 24, cheekily grabbing his wife’s bottom outside the restaurant.
He donned a crisp white overshirt and T-shirt, teamed with black jeans and a snapback cap.
Meanwhile, Nicola, 28, looked typically stylish in a black skin-tight top and jeans, teamed with platform heels.
It’s believed the footballers left the dinner party first, with the Beckhams staying and chatting for a while longer.
The family no doubt had plenty to talk about days after David’s former PA Rebecca made waves when she spoke out about their alleged affair.
Victoria and David have been married since 1999 – but it is almost 20 years since his former aide detonated a media frenzy like no other when she went public with details of their relationship.
It didn’t draw much of a response from Beckham at the time. So not for a second did she think he would address the subject – albeit obliquely – after so long in his BECKHAM documentary.

In BECKHAM, Victoria spoke for the first time of the pain she suffered in the aftermath of the claims about her husband David’s alleged affair with Rebecca.
Almost 20 years after it was claimed he and the personal assistant had become close while he was playing in Spain for Real Madrid, Victoria revealed that the months afterwards were the ‘hardest’ of her life and that she no longer felt like the couple ‘had each other’.
Meanwhile, David admitted he still doesn’t know how they got through the 2003 crisis but he and his former Spice Girl wife knew they had to ‘fight for their family’, and said they felt like they were ‘drowning’ when their high-profile marriage was in the headlines for months.
On the back of the revelations in the bombshell documentary, Rebecca shared exclusively which David stories are true.
She seesawed between irritation and annoyance when she watched the documentary on Netflix, recalling the aftermath of their affair. It is what he did not say that frustrates her, she said.
‘It’s all, “poor me”. He needs to take responsibility,’ Loos said. ‘He can say whatever he likes of course and I understand he has an image to preserve, but he is portraying himself as the victim and he’s making me look like a liar, like I’ve made up these stories.
‘He is indirectly suggesting that I’m the one who has made Victoria suffer.’
In truth, she would have rather he hadn’t spoken at all about what was, for her, a life-changing episode. To her mind, it was buried.
Elsewhere in the show, David choked back tears as he spoke candidly about his life and career while reflecting on his three decades in the spotlight.
The sportsman burst into the limelight at the tender age of 17 as Manchester United’s budding new midfielder, quickly earning himself the reputation as football’s golden boy and one of the most talented players of his generation.
Yet his career threatened to be derailed when he was blamed for England’s World Cup 1998 exit after lashing out at Diego Simeone, sparking a lengthy campaign of hate and abuse from fans.

Reflecting on the turbulent period, which David faced at the age of just 23, the athlete confessed he was a ‘mess’ and left unable to eat or sleep, with his wife Victoria, 49, revealing he suffered from clinical depression and the experience ‘broke’ him.
David recalled feeling ‘very vulnerable and alone’ as he landed back in the UK to hordes of jeering spectators and negative press, with his father Ted admitting David was ‘distraught’ when he met him, saying the young sports star ‘fell into my arms and said, “I’ve left everybody down.”‘
The night before the World Cup game, David had learnt that Victoria was pregnant with their first child and after touching down in England to see his parents he wasted no time jetting off to New York to spend time with his expectant fiancée – who was touring the States with The Spice Girls.
Victoria confessed: ‘I remember not really understanding how serious it was because you know I’ve never really been into football.
‘When he came to me in America he felt he let himself down, he let his teammates down, he let his country down, he let the fans down, me – he felt he let everybody down.
‘But when he was with us Spice Girls there was protection, people couldn’t get to us, we could put a cotton wool around us.
‘I don’t think either of us really realised what was going on in the UK. He went from having that protection into absolute carnage.’
Growing emotional as he reflected on the backlash he received, David confessed: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever talked about it because I can’t.
‘I find it hard to talk about what I went through because it was so extreme. The whole country hated me.’
Not staying silent: It comes after Rebecca Loos spoke out on her affair with David after the Beckham’s documentary aired
Oops: Rebecca noted that David isn’t exactly put on the spot about their alleged affair. Instead he is simply asked how he dealt with the ‘multiple tabloid stories’ it spawned
