6. OFF THE POST: Who will guard Beckham?
Several news outlets including UPI have reported that U.S. immigration authorities have denied visas to the eight-member bodyguard crew for David and Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, who will be moving to California this summer.
The inability to get work permits for the security team is based on U.S. policy not to grant them if U.S. residents are capable of doing the job. The Sun reported that the Beckhams are planning to hire a new group.
David Beckham received death threats following his red card in the 1998 World Cup against Argentina, which knocked England out of the competition. There was also a kidnapping plot against Beckham's family that was uncovered by British authorities in 2002.
Last year, one of Beckham security guards pulled a gun on three intruders who were discovered at the Beckham's home in Spain. It turned out they were Japanese journalists attempting to get footage for a documentary on Beckham.
