"It is highly inappropriate to trivialize such a disorder, and defamatory to be so thoughtless with a person's reputation in this way, therefore we are seeking legal advice," a spokesperson for Beckham told Fox News.

Christian Millau, French restaurant guide author, dies at 88 .
PARIS (AP) — Christian Millau, who built the Gault &amp; Millau restaurant guide series and was among the originators of the nouvelle cuisine food movement, has died at age 88. The Gault &amp; Millau publishing house announced Monday that Millau died Sunday. It did not provide details, but described him as "impertinent and independent." Born in 1929, Millau started as a journalist and joined Henri Gault to produce their first restaurant guide in 1969. It sold 100,000 copies and evolved into a French diner's staple. The series uses a rating system based not on stars, but the number of "toques" or chef's hats.
