Alleged stalker who believes she is the mother of David Beckham’s daughter showed up at her child’s school, court hears
David Beckham felt “threatened” and “terrified for the safety of his family” after an alleged stalker who believes she is the mother of his daughter Harper showed up at the child’s school, a court heard.
Haron Bell, 58, is said to be under the delusional belief that she was in a relationship with the former Manchester United and England footballer, that he and his wife Victoria Beckham stole their eggs and that their 10-year-old daughter is their legitimate child .
Bell reportedly sent a series of letters to the Beckhams’ homes in Oxford and London before attending the addresses in July and September last year.
Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard she also turned up to speak to Harper Primary School and was there when Victoria, 48, arrived to pick up her daughter.
Prosecutor Arizuna Asante said of the 47-year-old ex-Real Madrid, PSG, AC Milan and LA Galaxy star Beckham: “He felt threatened, he was afraid for his family’s safety and he believed this behavior was targeted and was intimidating.
“He says he does not know the defendant and that she is not the mother of his children.”
Bell, of Boundary Way, Watford, has previously pleaded not guilty to charges of stalking and will appear in court on July 12.
She did not attend Friday’s hearing, which revealed she is currently in the hospital where she was being dissected.

Her attorney, Lisa Wilson, said that unless her client is found insane by the court, she wants the Beckhams, who will be on vacation at the time of the trial, to be called as witnesses so they can be questioned about her claims.
The court heard that would include proposing to former Spice Girls singer Victoria, who has four children with her husband, “that she conspired with David Beckham to steal Sharon Bell’s balls”.
However, District Judge Michael Snow said the “absolutely bizarre allegation” would amount to “further harassment of the Beckham family” and said it was in the interests of the judiciary that their statements be read.
“There is a risk that the family will continue to be harassed, alarmed or distressed over delusional allegations,” he said.
The judge extended a civil restraining order for protection against stalking until the end of the trial, which he says will likely go the “psychiatric route,” resulting in a hospital order.
