‘Delusional’ husband tried to force David Beckham’s car off the road after falsely claiming wife had an affair with footballer
David Beckham has been named in a court case over claims of an affair with a married mother of two.
The 35-year-old footballer was forced last night to deny having an illicit fling with Shery Shabani, a Hollywood jeweller to the stars.
Mrs Shabani, 33, said she was accused by her ‘jealous and ‘delusional’ husband Kambiz of having an affair with Beckham, whose three sons attend the same school as her own son and daughter.

She claimed Beckham had told her that Mr Shabani, a 42-year-old
lawyer, had tried to run the star off the road in his car outside the
school in May.
She also alleged that her husband told police officers that she had
slept with the former England captain after she called them out to a

She in turn favours similar sunglasses and accessories to those used by Beckham’s wife Victoria.
A friend of the Beckhams said they were ‘acquaintances’ of Mrs Shabani
as their children attend the same exclusive �14,000-a-year Hollywood
school. Beckham is often seen on the school run with their three sons
Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and five year-old Cruz.

the idea that she was having an affair with David Beckham
The seedy accusations surfaced yesterday as part of Mrs Shabani’s
application for a restraining order against her husband of 12 years.
She is also seeking a divorce.
The slurs are the latest blow to hit the shell-shocked Beckhams, still reeling from untrue sex claims from Bosnian hooker Irma Nici.

A spokesman for Beckham told the Daily Mail last night: ‘As
with another recent story, this is another tale full of fantasy.’
And a friend insisted: ‘This is becoming a clear case of victimisation’, adding that Beckham was ‘not aware’ of Mrs Shabani’s claim that he told her of the incident on the road.
Jewellery designer Mrs Shabaniher is friends with the Beckhams, who are among the celebrities to have worn her designs
‘It’s a very odd situation. Obviously, David’s not complicit in this at
all – and he’s only learned of it today. This is all false and there’s
absolutely no suggestion that there is any truth in the husband’s
claims of an affair between David and the woman. It’s all a bit bizarre
to be honest.’
Mrs Shabani denies any affair in the court documents. As part of the
restraining order application, she told a court that her husband raged
at her: ‘I know why you’re upset, it’s your birthday and you didn’t get
a text message from David Beckham!
‘Why don’t you ask him to send you a picture of his c**k for your birthday you whore!’
The documents were filed by Mrs Shabani on August 19 at Los Angeles
County Superior Court, where she was granted the restraining order
against her husband.
She wrote: ‘Beginning in 2010, Respondant (Mr Shabani) accused me of having an affair with Beckham, often in front of our children.
‘I have repeatedly told him that his accusation is untrue. In fact, Respondent’s ongoing allegations regarding Mr Beckham are part and parcel of Respondent’s delusional thought processes.’
‘Although Mr Beckham’s children go to the same school as our children,
Respondent’s allegations are untrue.
What she said: Excerpts from the legal documents
‘In May 2010, Mr Beckham told me that Respondent had gone to our
children’s school and tried to drive Mr Beckham’s car off the road. Mr Beckham told me that Respondent (Mr Shabani) had gone to our children’s school and tried to drive Mr Beckham’s car off the road. Mr Beckham
further advised me that his car had almost crashed as a result.’
She said it was on July 7 that, in front of their children, her husband
accused her of being upset at not receiving a message from Beckham.

Finally, she said that on August 17 – the night Mr and Mrs Shabani separated – her husband claimed to police officers called to the house that ‘I had ‘f***ed David Beckham’.
Among the reasons she cited for why she should be allowed a restraining
order, Mrs Shabani said the Respondent ‘falsely accused the Petitioner
[Mrs Shabani] of having an extra-marital affair with a celebrity’.
Mrs Shabani started her business in 2003 and on her website, it states:
‘Shery’s pieces are favourites among the Hollywood elite, gracing the
necks and wrists of A-list celebrities like Vanessa Williams and Heidi
She told the U.S website RadarOnline
yesterday that her estranged husband’s claims of her alleged affair
with Beckham were ‘absolutely not true’, adding: ‘This is a really
nasty divorce, it was a domestic violence situation.
‘David Beckham is a nice guy. There is no relationship, nothing. This
has nothing to do with David, this is my husband’s craziness.’

If you continually put yourself ‘out there’ posing in your very tight briefs on billboards, snogging your wife in lifts for the cameras etc etc, you will attract the attention of the crazies! Try a lower profile Beckham, you dont need the money, however you seem to need the attention, but that is a double edged sword.

They’d be better off shunning the spotlight as a couple/family. It has been too much all these years ……and enough. Think of the children and go raise them in peace and away from the media glare.

Trying to force David’s car off the road could be a criminal offence. It all sounds so bizarre. Things could perhaps get worse if they as a couple/family do not keep a low profile.

Time the Beckhams gave up LA and headed back to blighty. Their dream life has just been getting more and more sour and malicious. I doubt if any of these stories is true. I’m no supporter of the Becks but I actually feel sorry for them and for ANYONE accused wrongly of something.

They want to live in la la land, they will have to deal with the inmates.

Ok, now, I REALLY do not envy Victoria Beckham’s life. It is SO EXHAUSTING!!!!! Mother of 3 boys, running her fashion business, has to look good at all times and now has to fend all these “rumours” of her husband’s “infidelities”.- Noora, London, 02/10/2010 09:57
It could be that those complaining or talking about Victoria having to fend all these “rumours” of her husband’s “infidelities”. are the same ones who spend much of their time talking about just that or propagating the same “rumours” contributing to the source of the rumours and her EXHAUSTION lol
Perhaps focus on her ”fashion business’ and not rumors or unproven stories or her personal life?
