LOS ANGELES (LALATE) - David Beckham sued Irma Nici aka Irma Nezirovic (photos below) and In Touch Magazine in 2010. Shortly after the Nici suit was brought by Beckham, In Touch denounced the soccer star’s claims. Today, a court threw out Beckham’s lawsuit against In Touch. His suit again Nici will proceed.
Beckham in 2010 brought a $25 million suit against Nici and the publisher of In Touch Magazine. But today a court ruled the published did not act with malice. It remains unclear what proof Beckham had In Touch allegedly acted with malice.
But in 2010 In Touch said it “published its article in complete faith in the accuracy of the story and its reporting.” Beckham has previously said that he told the magazine, prior to publication, that its story was false. But In Touch relied on its sources, not Beckham’s denial. “Notwithstanding Mr. Beckham’s denial, the magazine did not doubt and had no reason to doubt their multiple sources. In Touch is confident that Mr. Beckham’s lawsuit will be dismissed”. That is exactly what the court did today.
Beckham will reportedly appeal. He previously told news that Nici’s claims were “completely untrue and totally ridiculous, as the magazine [In Touch] was clearly told before publication. Sadly we live in a world where a magazine can print lies and believe they can get away with it.”
