Beckhams Abandon Holiday As Rain Stops Play
Football star and family pull plug on £250k Maldives break due to weather...
But The Sun newspaper claims that they endured three days of constant rain before pulling the plug on the holiday and heading off in search of sun elsewhere.
A source said: "It really is unfortunate for them, especially because it's such a beautiful place.
"But there was hardly anything for them to do except wait for the rain to stop. They arrived too late to leave in time to snatch Christmas Day somewhere sunny so they left on Wednesday.
"They were told by staff the rain could pass any day but the forecast for the coming days didn't look good either. You can only keep four children inside without anything to do for so long, especially over Christmas."
The couple are reported to have booked the best suite at the resort - which cost a whopping £8,600 a night - along with three other rooms at £3,700 per night each.
