In a different kind of football, big news has just broken about soccer’s biggest celebrity. Former L.A. Galaxy darling David Beckham will be brushing up on his French in the coming months, THR reports. And although he deserted us in the States, we can’t help but love him anyway for his latest move.
Beckham has signed on to play with Paris Saint Germain – for free, according to the BBC. All of the money he earns during his five-month deal with the French team will be going to a children’s charity in Paris.
Of late, Beckham has been somewhat more famous off the soccer pitch than on it. After his move to L.A., which gave him A-lister status and made him and his wife — former Spice Girl and fashion designer Victoria Beckham — a staple on Hollywood red carpets, the soccer player’s work in fashion and modeling eclipsed his athleticism.
While David Beckham hits the field in Paris, Victoria Beckham will stay in London with the couple’s four children – Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper.
