At LAX, the Beckham couple, accompanied by security, waved at a crowd of about 300 outside the terminal and walked through a barricaded sidewalk before leaving in a black Lincoln Navigator.

The Beckhams' sons -- Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 4 and Cruz, 2 -- were escorted out of the airport through a different route.
