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.
The former footballer admitted that he never feels like “an attractive, sexy person," to the magazine.

The MailOnline published an article questioning his parenting after 4 year old Harper was pictured with a dummy in her mouth.
David Beckham has angrily hit back at a recent article published by the MailOnline which criticised him for allowing his daughter Harper to use a dummy at the age of four. The former professional footballer and England captain has argued that the tabloid has “no right” to question his parenting.

Victoria and David Beckham's eldest son is the latest celebrity offspring to jump into the fashion world.
Brooklyn Beckham, the eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham has reportedly just signed a modelling contract with a top agency.

Brooklyn Beckham has reportedly signed to a modelling agency.
An unnamed source told The Mirror, ”He has recently signed to a modelling agency. It appears he has a lot of potential for a career in the industry. He is incredibly photogenic and has the handsome looks to be considered for some high-profile, big-money work.”
Would Eva Longoria make the perfect fifth Spice Girl?
The Spice Girls are back together! Ok, that was misleading. By “are” I mean “were” and by “together” I mean “in the same room, taking pictures for a couple of hours”. Also, there were only four of them. But other than that...
Posh, Sporty, Baby and Ginger reunited at David Beckham’s glamorous birthday party on Saturday, in Marrakech, Morocco. It was the presence of Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton that really spiced up the party, though.
It seems that even a high-flying, internationally-recognised and regularly-awarded fashion career does not guarantee people will like your style more than your husband’s as former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham recently found out.

The A-list power couple faced opposition from a neighbour after submitting extensive renovation proposals for their new luxury London home.
David and Victoria Beckham have triumphed in a planning dispute with their next-door neighbour over their proposal to put in air-conditioning at their new multi-million house in London.
At the end of March, the Beckhams submitted a planning request to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council to include the system in five rooms of their £31.5 million home in west London, including a luxury gym and a large wine cellar.
At this point, a neighbour lodged a complaint with the local council, arguing that the noise, pollution and dust from the construction would affect his enjoyment of his property. He was reportedly concerned that the Beckhams’ alterations would adversely affect “historic character of the Victorian house of the streets, my house included”.
