David Beckham And Wife In Trouble For Swindling British Taxpayers

Manchester United legend David Beckham and his wife Victoria have reportedly been accused of swindling British taxpayers.

A property source said the couple got a hold of a $20million penthouse in Miami as it provides them with ‘utmost privacy’, all the while Victoria pursued up $185,000 in emergency British taxpayer funds to save her crumbling fashion business.

The report went on to add that they both have their hands on the $19.8million condo in One Thousand Museum and while they haven’t yet moved in, the athlete and the designer are facing immense criticism for extracting a bank loan worth $12million to purchase the property spanning 11,000 sq ft.

This news comes following Victoria’s business wanting $185,000 in British taxpayer funds to furlough her 30 staffers during the coronavirus pandemic.

However, after facing flak, the company retracted their decision on May 1 of taking up the taxpayer assistance.

Meanwhile, their plans for the luxe Miami pad are going down as usual according to a source who told Page Six:

“The building is very special, it’s one of a kind. It’s like owning a piece of art. It’s a very special penthouse, you get a 360 degree of Miami from sunrise to sunset.

“The apartment provides more privacy, believe it or not… Here, they can hop into their private elevator and they don’t have to see anyone.”
