Soccer star David Beckham is planning to move to America to escape the "lies" of the British media.

The 30-year-old currently divides his time between Spain, where he plays for Real Madrid, and his family home in England.

But Beckham is sick of his happy home life with former SPICE GIRL VICTORIA BECKHAM and their three children being attacked by women claiming to have had affairs with him in the British press - and he hopes a move to Los Angeles will answer his prayers.

He says, "I love LA. I could get used to this. One thing I like about America - they respect the sportsman.

"A lot of the things said about me in the past year and a half have been lies. The fact is I'm happily married. I love my wife.

"We've got three amazing children. And for people to try and ruin that? It's pretty incredible."
