The latest claims – made by the the same US magazine, In Touch – are thought to have come out in court, as Beckham takes legal action against the magazine and its publishers.

Earlier this year, the famous footballer issued a writ against the German company, reportedly claiming £16 million in damages for printing the ‘completely untrue’ story.

Now it’s thought the publishers have used the privilege of court to make the new claims, reportedly revealing they were set to run a story about a second fling – this time with an American lingerie saleswoman.

But sources have already shot down the latest claims, branding them a ‘smokescreen,’ and have revealed David plans see the legal battle through.

‘This is a smokescreen and it is not going to hold up in court,’ an insider told US site RadarOnline.

‘He is not backing down – he plans to go full throttle in this matter. This posturing, with no evidence and no facts, isn’t going to stall the inevitable.’
