LOS ANGELES (AP) - A spokesman says David Beckham will file suit in Germany against the U.S. magazine that published claims the soccer superstar had sex with prostitutes.
Los Angeles publicist Jeff Raymond said the former captain of England's national team will sue In Touch magazine in several jurisdictions beginning Friday but declined to provide more details.
Beckham has been married to former Spice Girl singer Victoria Beckham for 11 years. The couple has three sons.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS.
In Touch's publisher, Bauer Media, is based in Hamburg.
The magazine quotes 26-year-old Irma Nici, who says she was a call girl who had sex with Beckham five times in 2007. She claims he also had sex with a second prostitute.
