Beckham Draws Embarrassing Auction Bid
A private soccer lesson with DAVID BECKMAN received the lowest bid at SIR ELTON JOHN's post-Oscar bash on Sunday night (25FEB07).
Beckham and his wife VICTORIA are moving to the US later this year (07) after he signed a $250 million (GBP128 million) contract to play with the LA Galaxy soccer team.
Despite the talents of veteran charity auctioneer SHARON STONE, the lesson sold for $70,000 (GBP36,000). Most prizes at the star-studded auction scored six-figure bids.
Rap mogul SEAN COMBS bid $65,000 (GBP33,300), but was outbid at the last moment.
A source tells PageSix, "Guess that shows how much Americans care about soccer!"
Beckham wasn't present at the bash but in Spain, where he is still under contract with the Real Madrid team.
