Lawyers for David Beckham have filed a lawsuit against In Touch Weekly after running a cover this week claiming that he had wild sex with hookers.

In the suit - filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court - he accuses the tabloid of libel, slander and intentionally causing emotional distress.

The suit also names 26-year-old Irma Nici, who is quoted as saying she was a call girl who slept with Beckham five times in 2007. She also says he had sex with a second prostitute.

In Touch has yet to comment.

Earlier this week, Beckham's rep told UsMagazine.com the allegations "are completely untrue and totally ridiculous, as the magazine was clearly told before publication. Sadly we live in a world where a magazine can print lies and believe they can get away with it."
