On Monday, David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, were seen in two different cities.
While the former footballer was spotted in London, his wife stepped out in NYC on Monday, ahead of the New York Fashion Week.
Their separate appearance is coming on the heels of David Beckham’s email drama over the weekend. In typical Victoria fashion; the former Spice Girl kept a straight face while being [hounded] by the paparazzi.
Over the week David [was] entangled in a £1 million ($1.2 million) blackmail plot. An email leaked by hackers; shared a 2013 conversation between the footballer and his publicist purportedly; detailing him fuming over being denied a knighthood due to tax reasons.
The email alleged that David used his UNICEF charity work to campaign for a knighthood.
Daily Mail reports that the email went public after Beckham’s representatives refused to comply with hackers’ demands.
A source who spoke with the news outlet revealed that Beckham [was] only caught in the cross fire
In some of the supposed damaging exchanges; Beckham — who [was] awarded an Order of the British Empire in 2003; allegedly [complained] that British singer Katherine Jenkins [was] also awarded an OBE; and called it “a f***ing joke.”
Beckham also supposedly called the committee that determines the honorees; “a bunch of cs” and said he “expected nothing less.” He also allegedly dismissed lower honors, ranting, “Unless it’s a knighthood, f off.”
His rep in reply urged him to focus his energy on his charitable efforts; like UNICEF, which he’s been an ambassador for since 2005.
In the email, he allegedly wrote; “It’s a disgrace to be honest; and if I was American I would [have] got something like this 10 years ago.”
Meanwhile, neither David nor Victoria have directly spoken out about the email leak.
