The former Spice Girl won undisclosed libel damages Monday as a result of an article published in Star magazine that claimed the crew of Beckham’s NBC reality program called her “full of herself and not very nice.”
The article, which ran in April, called the new Los Angeles import “picky, demanding, and rude” and described her as waltzing “round with her icy attitude”.
Beckham’s camp was quik to retaliate to the offending piece by suing the mag, and her lawyer Gerrard Tyrrell called the story “untrue and unfounded.” Not only was the British stunner not contacted by the magazine prior to publication, but filming of the show centering on the Beckhams big move to L.A. had not even begun by the time the story ran, according to Tyrrell. “The story was therefore completely inaccurate and defamatory of Ms Beckham,” Tyrrell said.
Northern & Shell PLC, which publishes the magazine, apologized and agreed to pay Beckham's legal fees and "substantial" damages.
