David Beckham's burlesque friend
David Beckham has reportedly been texting burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.
The soccer star - who has three sons with former Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham - is said to be so impressed by 35-year-old Dita's "raunchy routine" he got her number so he could express his gratitude.
A source is quoted on the MailOnline website as saying: "David is a big fan of Dita's raunchy routine and thinks she's very talented. Dita was delighted when he sent her a text recently."
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Galaxy star says the pair met through Victoria.
The representative said: "Dita is really Victoria's friend. I think David and Dita have met only once."
Dita, the ex-wife of goth rocker Marilyn Manson, is used to have celebrity fans.
The shapely stripper recently received a variety of sexy satin dresses from 'Entourage' actor Jeremy Piven.
Dita's lawyer Keith Fink said at the time: "She is single, and she's not dating, so he should step up to the plate because there are a lot of guys interested."
