Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The re­tired sports­man took home the hefty sum af­ter his new com­pany Seven Global LLP man­aged to make £8.6 mil­lion of profit in only seven months. A source told The Sun news­pa­per: “There is no stop­ping Brand Beck­ham. Even though he has long re­tired from foot­ball David’s em­pire keeps on grow­ing. He is a savvy busi­ness­man and sur­rounds him­self with like-minded peo­ple. The lat­est fig­ures are stag­ger­ing but it’s no real sur­prise.” The fig­ures come from the £3.8 mil­lion, which was paid to Beck­ham’s DB Ven­tures and life­style com­pany Global Brands Group Hold­ing Lim­ited, with the money thought to come from his suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion with brands in­clud­ing cloth­ing re­tailer H&M. Else­where, David also man­aged to se­cure an­other £11.4 mil­lion in profit at his Foot­work Pro­duc­tions com­pany, which rakes money in for the use of David’s name and his im­age. It comes af­ter the 41-year-old star ad­mit­ted he isn’t into lav­ish gifts and wants socks for Christ­mas. He said: “Socks is al­ways a good one. You know, I’m an English­man so we - us Brits we love nice socks, so I’ve asked for socks this year. Vic­to­ria’s list - nice pa­ja­mas. She loves some nice PJ’s, comfy and cozy.” And de­spite his wealthy sta­tus, David much prefers to wear ca­sual clothes like jeans, t-shirts and train­ers rather than suits. He added: “[I am a] very ca­sual dresser. I love to wear smart suits and I like to feel smart when I go out for din­ner but I also much pre­fer to wear jeans, Tshirts, train­ers, boots, vin­tage boots and that’s kind of how I dress ev­ery sin­gle day.”
