David Beckham’s stalker claimed Victoria owed her money as star feared next move07/12/2022
David Beckham, 47, was targeted by Sharon Bell, 58, for a period between July and November last year.
He feared for both himself and his family after receiving letters home and visits to the Oxfordshire and west London properties he shares with wife Victoria Beckham.
Westminster Magistrates' Court heard how she sent letters before attending the properties with David writing in a statement read out by prosecutor Arizuna Asante that he was "worried about what she would do next".

Beckham said that Bell sent a handwritten letter to their Oxfordshire home on July 5, 2021 informing him that she would be attending the property.
The letter read: "I have got your address from a detective agency, I hope you don't mind. I have feelings for you, David.
"Victoria owes me some money, David, as she's been robbing my bank account for years, which isn't very nice. I would appreciate it if she wasn't there."
The court was told how Bell was "persistent" when she arrived at their home on July 9, but left when security told her she was at the wrong address.
Bell then sent another letter to the Beckhams' home in Holland Park and turned up again on September 9.
She warned David as the letter read: "Please be there, otherwise someone will go to the press and say you both have my roll numbers. Now that wouldn’t look good, would it, as you have got an OBE.
"You said if I write to you first and I’m unarmed (which I will be) then I can come in for a chat and a tea (Earl Grey is my favourite tea). I really want to chat to you, so please can I come in for a chat?"
Bell then told David that he "owed" her the chance to talk to him and added in the letter: "(PS I would like to be with you when you have brain surgery to give you a few new brain cells) and your friend Tom Cruise has really upset me, David.
"He has done some terrible things to me."
Beckham said he had never met Bell and feared the language was escalating and threatening towards himself and his family.
He said: "The letters were becoming increasingly threatening and obviously the female knew where I lived."
Bell was charged with stalking but will not face a criminal trial because she has a mental disorder.
District Judge Michael Snow made an order to detain Bell under the Mental Health Act.
