Posh Wins Libel Case

by | 26 June 2007

Victoria Beckham has been awarded undisclosed damages over claims by a celebrity magazine that she was "picky, demanding and rude".

The former Spice Girl's solicitor Gerrard Tyrrell told London's high court that the description of the star in April's edition of Star magazine were "untrue and unfounded".

During yesterday's hearing, which Beckham did not attend, the court heard how an insider from the crew of her new US reality show told the publication that the star was "full of herself and not very nice".

The source also claimed that the 33-year-old was "mean" to the assistants who worked on the show, which is to be aired in America next month on NBC.

But Mr Tyrrell stressed that when the article was published, filming had not yet commenced on the project which charts Beckham's move to the US with her footballer husband David and three children.

He said that as such no member of the TV show's crew could have commented on her behaviour at that time.

Star's publishers Northern and Shell subsequently agreed to pay Beckham substantial damages and her legal costs after accepting that the allegations made in the publication were false.

Meanwhile it has been claimed that Beckham, aka Posh Spice, is being sought in the US for a new role as a cheerleader.

According to the Sun newspaper bosses at David Beckham's new football team LA Galaxy want the former singer to perform at her husband's first American match in August after she threw balls around with the LA Dodgers baseball team ahead of one of their games this week.

"There are discussions about getting her to do a similar cheerleading thing for Beckhams first soccer game," a source told the paper.
