David Beckham was ‘scared’ for his family’s safety after an alleged stalker who thinks she is his daughter’s mother showed up at the child’s school, a court heard.

After allegedly sending a series of letters to the Beckhams’ homes in Oxford and London, she also attempted to visit the addresses in July and September last year.

Bell, of Watford, previously pleaded not guilty to a harassment charge and will stand trial on July 12.

During a hearing on Friday, prosecutor Arizuna Asante said Beckham “felt threatened, he was afraid for the safety of his family and he thought this behavior was targeted and intimidating.”

“He says he does not know the defendant and she is not the mother of his children,” he said.

Bell did not attend the hearing. The court heard that she was currently in hospital, where she had been severed.

His lawyer, Lisa Wilson, said if Bell is not found insane by the court, the Beckhams – who will be on vacation during the trial – should be called to testify so they can be questioned about the allegations.

She said that would include suggesting to former Spice Girl Victoria that she “conspired with David Beckham to steal Sharon Bell’s eggs”.

However, District Judge Michael Snow described the complaint as “absolutely bizarre” and said it would amount to “further harassment of the Beckham family”.

“There is a risk that the family will experience further harassment, worry or distress because of delusional allegations made to them,” he said, adding that it is in the interests of the family. justice that their statements be read.

He extended an interim civil harassment protection order until the end of the proceedings, which he said was likely to result in a hospital order.
