David Beckham and his oldest son Brooklyn were in a car accident on Friday morning. The incident happened on LA freeway 405, when Beckham tried to avoid a stalled car in the car pool lane. Instead, Beckham rear ended his Cadillac Escalade into a Mitsubishi in the neighboring lane.
While Beckham and Brooklyn were unharmed, the other drive involved in the crash had to be taken to the hospital. Witnesses say while the incident was minor, it could have been much worse!
A judge has order David Beckham to pay In Touch Magazine’s court fees after he sued the magazine for $25 million over false accusations. The suit was dismissed by the judge over failure of evidence that the editors of In Touch published the story “with malice” intent after In Touch printed that Becks cheated on wife Victoria beckham with Bosian prostitute, Irma Nici.
Beckham refutes the dates and times Nici claimed she was with the soccer star. In the legal documents obtained by News of the World, Beckhman said: “As is my custom when I arrive at a hotel on a road trip before a match, a massage therapist came to my hotel room within a few hours after I checked to in to give me a massage… I recall that the therapist did not leave my hotel room until the very early morning. My security team was with me before, during and after the massage. After the therapist left I went to sleep. I have reviewed the daily logs prepared by my security detail which confirm my recollections.”
Becks has already filed an appeal but still must pay the $300,000 in legal fees for In Touch. Him and his wife Victoria are expecting their fourth child and first daughter this summer.
With next year’s NFL season still up in the air, players are trying to get by where they can, if that means moving in with their parents or changing careers. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Chad Ochocino is trying out for an MLS team. The controversial wide receiver has a four-day tryout with Sporting Kansas City. Ochocinco confirmed his possible career change via Twitter saying, “Due to the NFL lockout, I’m excited to be able to follow my childhood dream of playing for a Major League Soccer team.”
While Sporting Kansas City is claiming this is not a publicity stunt, they were in the news last week for announcing that their new stadium would be called Livestrong Sporting Park, despite Lance Armstrong’s foundation not paying for naming rights.
