A court heard David Beckham was concerned for the “protection of his family” after a lady who falsely believes she is the mother of his daughter showed up at her school.
Sharon Bell, 58, is accused of stalking the former Manchester United and England player, believing he and his wife Victoria Beckham had stolen her eggs.
Before showing up at the Beckhams’ homes in Oxford and London between July and September, Bell allegedly sent them letters.
She also went to their daughter Harper’s school to chat with her and was present when Victoria arrived to pick her up, according to Westminster magistrates.
Bell is claimed to be certain she was in a relationship with David, 47, and that Harper, 10, is her child.
Prosecutor Arizuna Asante said of Beckham: “He felt threatened, he felt frightened for the safety of his family, and he believed this behaviour was targeted and intimidating.

“He says he does not know the defendant and she is not the mother of his children.”
Bell, of Watford, Hertfordshire, has previously pleaded not guilty to a stalking charge and is set to stand trial in July.
She did not appear in court yesterday, and the judge was informed that she is temporarily sectioned in a hospital.
Lisa Wilson, her lawyer, stated that if her client is not determined to be made by the court, she wants the Beckhams invited as witnesses in the trial to be questioned about her accusations.
The former Spice Girls singer Victoria, who has four children with her husband, would be accused of conspiring with David Beckham to steal Sharon Bell’s eggs, the court heard.
However, district judge Michael Snow stated that the “totally strange notion” would just add to the Beckhams’ anguish and that their statements should be read instead.
“There is a possibility that the family will be subjected to more harassment, fear, or anguish as a result of the delusional charges,” he stated.
The judge prolonged a civil interim stalking protection order until the conclusion of the proceedings, which he predicted would take a “psychiatric turn,” leading to a hospital order.
