Unusual hobby

Beck­ham admits that play­ing with “sticky things” is one of his favorite pas­times. This is what Beckham’s wife calls the organ­ic hon­ey that David has been pro­duc­ing since the begin­ning of the coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic. David Beck­ham him­self insists on a dif­fer­ent name — “Gold­en Bees”. The first episode of the Net­flix doc­u­men­tary series about their fam­i­ly begins with this rev­e­la­tion.

Not allowed to attend the World Cup due to unusual outfit

Just before the 1996 World Cup, the Eng­lish press had a rea­son to prac­tice foot­bal­l’s biggest star: Beck­ham, dressed in a Jean-Paul Gaulti­er sarong, was spot­ted at a pri­vate par­ty.

Pre­sum­ably, it was because of the extra­or­di­nary out­fit that the head coach of the nation­al team, Glenn Hod­dle, left the foot­baller on the bench in his debut match.

“When I saw him in the play­ers’ lounge, the oth­er play­ers were in the bar, but he was stand­ing and talk­ing to his par­ents. I’m very close to my fam­i­ly and I liked that side of him,” Vic­to­ria said.

“Kissed my wife in parking lots”

Rela­tions between the cou­ple quick­ly dete­ri­o­rat­ed, but their man­age­ment did not want their rela­tion­ship to become pub­lic knowl­edge. This meant they had to get cre­ative.
Vic­to­ria recalls: “My man­ag­er kept telling me to keep it a secret, not to take pic­tures togeth­er. So we met in park­ing lots — and I don’t mean that in a nasty way.
