Biography

David Beckham OBE (born 2 May 1975)
David Beckham is a former British footballer who rose to fame while playing for Manchester United.

Net worth: David Beckham has a net worth of $300 million according to the International Business Times (2013).

Football career: When he was 16, David Beckham signed to play for Manchester United alongside Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes. He became officially professional two years later. He took a break from the team to play for Preston North End, but soon returned in 1995. Beckham cemented himself as Man U's right-sided midfielder and by 1996, he was recognised everywhere having scored an impressive goal against Wimbledon. The following year, he took over Eric Cantona's number 7 T-shirt. In the early 2000s, he and manager Alex Ferguson struggled to find common ground. Ferguson eventually fined Beckham for taking time off to care for his sick son Brooklyn, despite his wife apparently being able to look after him instead. Between 2000 and 2001, United became the first team ever to land three Premier League titles consecutively, due to Beckham's dedication to the sport. The team missed out on a title in 2002 after he broke his foot during a match against Deportivo La Coruña. In 2003, he had to get stitches near his eye when Ferguson launched a boot at his face. Despite tensions in the team, however, they still performed well and Beckham landed Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. That year he also transferred to Spanish team Real Madrid, though he was forced to drop his famous number 7 for a number 23. In 2007, he signed with American team LA Galaxy, but was briefly loaned to Milan in 2009 for the first of two temporary stints he would take with that team. In 2013, he signed a 5-month contract with Paris Saint-Germain, before retiring later that year. His last match saw him don a pair of special Union Jack boots bearing the names of his wife and children. Among his other business ventures are the David Beckham Academy football school which ran between 2005 and 2009, various charity work and underwear modelling.

Personal life: David Beckham was born in London. His parents are hairdresser Sandra Georgina and kitchen fitter Ted Beckham. He has enjoyed football since he was a child, playing in a youth team and developing a love for Manchester United. He went to school at Chingford Foundation School. In 1999, he married Spice Girls star Victoria Adams (now just known as Victoria Beckham) and the pair have four children: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven. In 2004, rumours emerged in the media that Beckham was having an affair with his ex-assistant Rebecca Loos, with model Sarah Marbeck also making similar claims. He denied both stories. He struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder in regards to even numbers and straight lines.

David Beckham 'Encourages Victoria's Spice Girls Reunion'


David Beckham Spice Girls Mel B Melanie C Emma Bunton Geri Horner Victoria Beckham

Popstar-turned-fashion-designer Victoria is expected to join her former bandmates Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell as the girls celebrate the 20th anniversary of their group this summer (16). While Victoria was said to be wary about the shows, it seems the promise of a relaxing break beforehand has helped make the decision easier.

"There are still lots of details to sort out, but Victoria's said she'll perform with the girls," a source told Britain's Closer magazine. "However she (got) stressed (about it) and needed to focus on David and the kids after a stressful 2015 of trying to juggle work and family life, so committing to all the dates would be too much.

"David was the one who helped change her mind about the tour and they came up with a compromise. They've already booked two mini-breaks for next month (Feb16) and are spending much more time alone together so they won't get complacent."
