Two David Beckham fans, aged 9 and 10, are suing each other over a shirt that the football star handed to the crowd after a LA Galaxy game agains Japan's Gamba Osaka at Hawaii's Aloha Stadium. The nine-year-old reportedly grabbed it first and a fight followed with his best friend who claims it was meant for him. The boys’ parents also got into the fight and hired lawyers, reports the Mirror.co.uk
The nine-year-old boy’s father Wilfred Ho said: "My son got it first from Mr Beckham directly. Our main argument for the jersey is that my son got possession."
But the older boy’s parents say Beckham told their son that he wanted him to have it. The 10-year-old’s father said: "Mr Beckham pointed out he wanted our son to have it and it’s been really hard on him. He’s such a big star and it’s one heck of an experience for the boys."
With Becks unavailable for comment LA Galaxy president and general manager, Alexei Lalas perhaps has a solution.
"I suggest that they get a pair of scissors, cut the thing in two and give half to each."
"This is not something we'd want to happen-and certainly not something David would intend."
