Soccer star David Beckham was spotted leaving a cheap massage parlour in Thai after a late night therapy session in Los Angeles.
The LA Galaxy striker apparently visited the Lamai Thai Massage shop last week when wife Victoria was in Britain.
He paid 40 dollars for a full-hour treatment.
There are plenty of parlours closer to Becks' LA mansion and he has also been provided a massage therapist and physiotherapist by Galaxy to help him recover from a torn Achilles tendon. But David, 35, is a regular at Lamai, which is in the edgy Venice Beach suburb.
"David has visited the shop a few times," News of the Word quoted Masseuse Al Manomai, who gave him a massage as saying. "I was standing on his back and we did a lot of stretches.
"He wanted his leg and back worked on but told me to be careful of his ankle as he has an injury. I was standing on his back and we did a lot of stretches. He came in quite late though and didn't have time for a cup of tea afterwards," she said.
LA's Thai massage parlours are notorious for offering sexual favors - known as "happy endings".
"He gave me a good tip, 20 dollar, but it wasn't much more than other customers," she added.
