David Beckham has reportedly been ordered to pay $272,000 to magazine bosses who published false allegations of his infidelity with a prostitute last year.
The football star decided to take legal action last September, but a US judge dismissed the lawsuit for failing to produce evidence that the story was published with malice.
And when the 35-year-old lodged an appeal to overturn the decision, he was ordered to pay the magazine in order to cover their legal costs.
