Following their appearance at the Melbourne Cup last week, rumours began circulating that Bec and Lleyton Hewitt were headed towards a split.

Online publications claimed that the tennis pro, 35, had ‘embarrassed’ Bec, 33, and she was fuming following his ‘drunken antics’ at the event last Tuesday.

However, the couple has since spoken out, slamming the reports as ‘fabricated lies’ through a statement given by their manager, David Drysdale.

‘They are a very loving, close-knit unit with very strong family morals. That is why saying Lleyton is a “party boy” and their marriage is failing is completely laughable,’ the statement reads.

The couple have been attending many spring racing events together, taking some time away from their three young children: Ava, Cruz and Mia.
