The couple are known for their stylish and glamorous lifestyle, and have been dubbed “Brand Beckham” by the media. They have also been involved in various charitable and humanitarian causes, such as UNICEF, Malaria No More, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.


David Beckham’s career as a professional footballer spanned over two decades and saw him play for some of the most successful clubs in the world. He debuted for Manchester United in 1992 at 17 and became a regular first-team member.

He won six Premier League titles, two F.A. Cups, and the UEFA Champions League in 1999 with Manchester United and became one of the world’s most popular and influential players.

He was known for his exceptional ability to deliver accurate and powerful free kicks and crosses, often resulting in spectacular goals or assists.

He also became the captain of the England national team in 2000 and led them to the quarter-finals of the 2002 and 2006 FIFA World Cups and the Euro 2004.

He is the first English player to score in three consecutive World Cups and the second to score from three direct free kicks in World Cup finals.

In 2003, he joined Real Madrid as one of the “Galácticos,” a group of star players that included Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, and Luis Figo.

He won the La Liga title with Real Madrid in 2007, his last season with the club. He then moved to L.A. Galaxy in the Major League Soccer, where he won two M.L.S. Cups in 2011 and 2012.

He also had two loan spells with AC Milan in 2009 and 2010 and a brief stint with Paris Saint-Germain in 2013, where he won the Ligue 1 title in his final match as a professional player.

David Beckham has faced controversy and criticism in his career and personal life. Some of the most notable incidents are:

In 1998, he was sent off in the World Cup quarter-final against Argentina after kicking Diego Simeone in retaliation for a foul. England lost the match on penalties, and many fans and media blamed Beckham for the defeat.

He received death threats and abuse from some angry supporters and was burned in effigy in some places. He later redeemed himself by scoring a penalty against Argentina in the 2002 World Cup and becoming the national team captain.

In 2004, he was accused of having an affair with his assistant, Rebecca Loos, while he was married to Victoria. He denied the allegations and said they were part of a plot to damage his reputation and extort his money.

He and Victoria remained together and sued several newspapers for libel and invasion of privacy. They also renewed their wedding vows in 2006 and have shown a strong and united front as a couple and a family.

In 2010, he was involved in a lawsuit with a prostitute, Irma Nici, who claimed that she had sex with him in 2007. He denied the claims and sued her and the magazine that published her story, In Touch, for defamation and emotional distress.

He said he had never met her and was in another country at the time of the alleged encounter. He also said that the story was a deliberate attempt to harm his marriage and his image.

The lawsuit was dismissed by a U.S. judge in 2012 because the First Amendment protected the magazine. Beckham appealed the decision but later dropped the case in 2013.
