Mazal tov Beckham, you're Jewish

LONDON - English soccer phenom and fashion icon David Beckham recently found out his mother comes from a Jewish family.

 

The enthused Real Madrid halfback, who has a large tattoo of a cross adorning his chest, chose to mark the revelation by adding another tattoo on his left forearm during a recent trip to Singapore, this time of a famous verse from the Song of Songs: "I am for my beloved and my beloved is for me."

 

Beckham’s wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Adams, was so moved by her husband’s gesture that she decided to tattoo the same verse on the back of her neck.

 

A source close to the glitzy couple told the London-based “Sun” that of all his tattoos, Beckham regards the Hebrew verse to be “the most romantic.”

 

On Wednesday the “Daily Mirror” admitted it had slurred Beckham when it published an article a month ago saying the soccer star has been harassing his children’s former nanny, Abbie Gibson, on the phone.

 

The article was posted after Ms. Gibson had given the newspaper a special interview.

 

The newspaper and publishing house are set to pay Beckham compensation and legal expenses.

 

The nanny promised not to expose any additional details regarding the fling with her former boss; she revealed that, in the past, she and Beckham had sex but did not engage in intercourse.
