From the South Florida site: Press accounts circulating in the UK over the weekend claimed soccer great David Beckham bought the Versace mansion in Miami Beach for $50M. But according to reports, Beckham says he and pop star wife Victoria did not purchase the South Beach property

According to a report on the Women’s Wear Daily website on Sunday, the Beckhams denied purchasing the 23,000-square foot manse. The article indicated that the initial story about Beckham buying the property ran in an Italian newspaper, Corriere Della Sera.

Several European media outlets, including Mirror Online, picked up on that story. But the transaction has not been recorded by Miami-Dade County or reported locally. The Nakash family acquired the 1116 Ocean Drive property for $41 million during a September 2013 bankruptcy auction.

The Beckhams are close friends with Versace’s sister Donatella. The 10-bedroom, 23,000-square-foot mansion was constructed in 1930. It opened as a hotel five years ago.

Beckham made his plans to bring a Major League Soccer franchise to Miami official last month. His investment group is currently looking for a stadium site and negotiating with county officials. [Mirror Online]Eric Kalis
