You might recall reading the story on David Beckham that appeared in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times. But it was long, so you might not have made it to this part:
Beckham’s track record for splurging on ostentatious and outrageous gifts for his wife is well-documented. […] On another occasion, while Victoria was expecting their third child, Beckham spent $1.8 million for a diamond-encrusted sex toy with matching 16-carat diamond necklace.
Seems some of that piece – the interesting part – was not thoroughly fact-checked, and although the Times has not yet seen fit to print a correction, Ray Richmond at Past Deadline asked Posh about the diamond-encrusted gift when he spoke to her on the phone and she said it wasn’t true. “We do buy each other nice things,” she told him, but “I don’t have a diamond-encrusted vibrator.” Well, not yet, anyway. She’s currently nagging Becks to buy her a set of ruby-and-platinum Ben Wa balls.
