On the Rocks Alert:
David Beckham caught cheating

Publication: In Touch
Date: 4 October 2010

David Beckham, the aging British football star who looks like a somewhat younger version of Sting, has had his name bandied about for a while as part of a sex scandal. In Touch has decided Americans are going to care about this story, so they print a bunch of details, including unsafe sex threesomes, a picture of a busty hooker who charges $10,000 a night and a quote from the young lady where she says she understands how he would be unhappy, a shot at Beckham's dull and way too skinny wife Victoria, who used to be Posh Spice back when anyone gave a rat's ass about her career.

The Beckhams aren't just denying the story, they are suing. The thing is, libel laws are different in the U.S. and it's harder to win than it is in the U.K. I can't be sure if anyone explained this to Becks and Posh, and even if someone did, no one can be sure they understood the explanation. Not the brightest bulbs on the tree, that pair.

I think anyone would cheat on someone who frowns that much.
And he certainly seems not to dress up much when he's out with her.
My verdict: He cheated but there were extenuating circumstances.

She and Baby Spice went on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart near the end of their career. He tore them apart and they didn't get it. Before that, I just didn't care about them. After that, I actively hated her.
