Football heartthrob David Beckham has been counter-sued by Irma Nici, the prostitute who claimed to have had a threesome with him.
Beckham, who has been married to former Spice Girl Victoria for the past 11 years, had served the 26-year-old vice girl with a writ claiming $25 million in damages.
Nici, a Muslim immigrant from Bosnia, is now hitting back at the father-of-three and her attorney, Paul Rolf Jensen, filed her suit at Los Angeles County Superior Court for "emotional and physical injuries".
She is said to be claiming for the injuries received when a process server arrived at her New York hotel to deliver Beckham’s lawsuit last week.
Nici claims she was hounded by the officials and was hospitalised afterwards as a direct result and his holding Beckham responsible, reported TMZ online.
"Beckham is responsible for his goon’s conduct, and we will hold him liable for it. California law does not allow public figures like David Beckham to stifle free speech. Maybe he didn’t live here in Los Angeles long enough to learn how precious we here consider our rights to tell the truth in print," said her attorney.
To add further drama in Beckham’s current situation were revelations last week that he’d been named in a court case over claims of an affair with a married mother-of-two.
The 35-year-old sporting legend was forced to deny having an illicit fling with Hollywood jeweller Shery Shabani, 33.
Shabani said she was accused by her "jealous and delusional" husband Kambiz of having an affair with Beckham, whose three sons Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and Cruz, five, attend the same school as her own son and daughter.(PTI)
