David Beckham’s representative said that the allegedly hacked emails that revealed that Beckham got angry when he was asked to donate money at a charity dinner, are “outdated” and “doctored,” denying its claim.
David Beckham’s representative denied a story posted in The Sun, which accuses Beckham of getting angry when asked to donate money at a charity dinner.
This was revealed through alleged “hacked emails” leaked by Football Leaks- the sports equivalent of WikiLeaks, which Beckham is saying are “doctored” and “outdated.”
His Representative’s Statement
Beckham’s spokesperson said: “This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture.
“David Beckham and UNICEF have had a powerful partnership in support of children for over 15 years. The David Beckham 7 Fund specifically has raised millions of pounds and helped millions of vulnerable children around the world. David Beckham has given significant time and energy and has made personal financial donations to the 7 Fund and this commitment will continue long term.
“Before establishing the 7 Fund, David had supported UNICEF and a number of other charities over many years, including donating his entire earnings from PSG during his time playing there.
“David and UNICEF are rightly proud of what they have and will continue to achieve together and are happy to let the facts speak for themselves.”
