Inside David Beckham’s Relationship With Mark Wahlberg

This business relationship between David Beckham and Mark Wahlberg started when Beckham agreed to be F45’s global ambassador. This was back in August of 2021. Back then, the famous pair bonded while they were both living in Los Angeles.

According to legal documents, David Beckham claims he never got the $10M he was offered for this global ambassador role. He was also allegedly promised stocks as a form of compensation, which he also never received, seemingly after share prices took a major dip.

It turns out, Mark Wahlberg’s team of lawyers deny these claims made by Beckham. In fact, Wahlberg’s team even put forth a motion to dismiss. According to the legal team, the accusations made by Beckham are “baseless.”
