Victoria Beckham's mother has spoken out and has said that her daughter is "living in fear" and may need counselling following a recent plot to kidnap her.
Jackie Adams says Victoria has been scared to leave her Hertfordshire house ever since police foiled an attempt to abduct her and her two children.
"Victoria is very upset and disturbed," said Jackie.
"This whole thing has left her shaken and she's scared to be on her own. To be honest, I think she should have some form of counselling."
She added: "It's really terrible to know that, unlike other grans, I can't just take the kids to the park to play on the swings and know they are safe. It's something that Victoria and I are too fearful to do."
