Leaked Beckham emails reportedly include attack on Katherine Jenkins and sweary anger at no knighthood
This sounds very unlike the Becks we know and love.
As part of the ongoing 'Football Leaks' whistleblowing operation, some very controversial - and alleged at this stage - personal emails from David Beckham have been made public which don't paint the ex-Manchester United man in the best light.
The most damaging reports revolve around Beckham's reaction to not being given a knighthood in the 2013 Queen's Honours. He is alleged to have emailed his chief public relations adviser, Simon Oliveira, the following at not being made a Sir:
"They [are] a bunch of c**ts I expected nothing less...Who decides on the honours?? It’s a disgrace to be honest and if I was American I would of got something like this 10 years ago."
The leak also claims that the former England captain focused his ire on singer Katherine Jenkins, who was awarded an OBE:
"Katherine Jenkins OBE for what? Singing at the rugby and going to see the troops plus admiring [sic] to taking coke…F**king joke and if you get asked we should think of a cutting remark."
There are also suggestions that Beckham's charity work with UNICEF was partly motivated by the hope of royal honours. Beckham has yet to respond to the allegations and so they are best to be treated with due scepticism at this stage.
