David Beckham Tries To Get Hooker Story Lawsuit Reinstated


I thought when David Beckham lost in court last year that all would be quiet about the story In Touch ran about David paying $10,000 to a hooker for sex. That really is a lot of money. I think he is probably suing because he does not want people to think he paid $10K for sex. Anyway, last year David sued In Touch and a judge threw the case out saying that In Touch believed their source and there was nothing David could do. He waited a very long time, but Beckham has appealed the ruling. He is not going to have any luck. Even if it gets reinstated it will get kicked out at some point down the line. It is very tough to prove libel in the United States. In England, In Touch already would have written a check. They love this story in England because they get to mention it without fear of being sued because it is a news story.

Me too!

The REAL reson David is upset is because Victoria got mad. She told him:
"Ten thousand?? The first time you hired ME you only paid 500!!"

She got so mad her implants exploded. I bet this story went over like a fart in Sunday School in the Beckham house.

Rose said...

She got her implants removed a few years ago. He probably should have let this go. Now everyone remembers he hired a hooker.

Mango said...

@ Rose, I think she traded down for a smaller pair of implants. Those melon tits were ridiculous.

Shay said...

Wow, a married athlete paid a hooker??? (sarcasm)

RocketQueen said...

Yeah, she traded down for a smaller pair, ostensibly (according to Lainey) to finally get a Vogue cover. Still no luck.

I love reading the comments in the UK Daily Mail whenever there is a David Beckham story. The readers act like he is pure as the driven snow and would never, ever, even contemplate such a thing. We don't care that much here, but over there this is huge and he no doubt wants to clear his name, even if it happens to be true.

I was in London a couple of years ago for work. While there, Beckham got hurt and had to go to Norway (I think) for surgery. The hype was over the top, news cameras following his car to the airport, non-stop coverage, etc. But here in Canada, Sidney Crosby gets that kind of attention. Beyond ridiculous.

I have a hard time believing this story. Not that he cheated but that he had to pay her for it. He can get sex for free.

@Cheryl - I agree and that is the same no matter which UK tabloid you read. The public have pretty much been conditioned to adore him. Even when he cheated with his PA and revelations were endless and didn't make him look good, both the press and the public blamed either the mistress or Victoria. He remained consistently blameless in their eyes. The fact that he won't let this go says that this particular hooker is lying about the liaison or that he is so arrogant that he does not like losing.

@Janet296 - The most beautiful and desirable of men, famous or not use prostitutes. It is the availability,control and discretion (oh the irony) that they are buying.

Didn't Charlie Sheen say something to the effect of "I didn't pay her for sex, I paid her to leave afterwards"? A pro is in it strictly for the money, whereas an amateur might well push for more.

He was able to disprove her story & they didn't bother to check with him before they ran the story. He's suing for $25mil, which seems a little much. I don't believe he's been 100% faithful but it seems unfair that they get at with stuff like this.
