Former English soccer star David Beckham has been embroiled in a bit of a controversy after a video of him lovingly kissing his daughter on the lips went viral. The co-owner of the MLS franchise Inter Miami released a video of his daughter doing his makeup at the end of which he pecked her on the lips.

This led to some people on social media criticizing him for seemingly consensual ‘fatherly’ love. ESPN analyst and Serena Williams‘ former coach Rennae Stubbs jumped in defense of the former Manchester United soccer star. “Ridiculous! That’s the cutest thing ever and so is he! I’ve met David a few times at Wimbledon and he always brings his mum and he’s adorable with her too and the nicest guy ever. People need to seriously get a life,” she shared on the social media site ‘X’.

Beckham has often been seen in attendance at the Wimbledon, usually seated in the Royal Box. This year, he was seen at the center court with his mother Sandra, 74.

Beckham’s side Inter Miami pulled off a coup earlier this summer when they signed Argentine World Cup-winning captain Lionel Messi. The MLS side fended off interest from major European sides to get the services of the Argentine great. Beckham is said to be pivotal in pursuing the 7-time Ballon d’Or winner to join the club.

David Beckham’s career in soccer and business

Beckham rose to fame for his stint at the English club Manchester United. A member of the famous ‘ Class of ’92 ‘ alongside Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes, he helped the club win the FA Youth Cup in May 1992. Famous for his goal from the halfway line against Wimbledon, he wore the prestigious no.7 jersey for United. David Beckham’s corners helped United complete a historic comeback against Bayern Munich in the final of UCL 1999. The victory made United the first English club to win a treble.

After having lost his place in the team, Beckham joined reigning Spanish champions Real Madrid for €37 million on a four-year contract in 2003. The transfer was in the headlines as the president of FC Barcelona, Real Madrid’s arch-rivals, had made a campaign promise to sign the English star. Beckham was part of a group of players called the ‘Galacticos’.

After a 5-year stint with LA Galaxy in the MLS, Beckham called curtains on his career as he played his last professional game for French club PSG in 2013. In 2014, MLS announced that Beckham and a group of investors would own Inter Miami, which began playing in 2020.
