Ryan Seacrest has the hots for David Beckham – and his staff thinks his infatuation with the soccer stud “has gotten a little out of control.”
A DishNation insider says the “American Idol” host, who launches his Ryan Seacrest Distinction clothing line in the fall, refers to the tattooed underwear model as his own personal fashion idol.
Seacrest, the well-groomed red carpet staple, even used Beckham look-a-likes as models and mannequins for his upcoming Macy’s fashion line.
“Ryan is like a giggly teenage girl when it comes to David – and it has everyone talking,” a well placed source in the Seacrest camp revealed. “He always goes on and on about how buff David’s body is and how good he looks in a suit…and in underwear. He respects David’s internationally renown style and hopes that someday he’ll wear one of his suits. Ryan’s totally straight, but his infatuation with David verges on the uncomfortable.”
David, who’s married to former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, launched a line of underwear called David Beckham Bodywear for H&M last year.
It’s fine that Ryan’s inspired by the British athlete, but it’s his non-stop complimentary comments that are creeping his friends out, says the source.
“Ryan’s friends joke about his Beckham man crush, but it got weird when he started talking about hoping to go on holiday with David,” adds the source. “We all looked at him funny so Ryan said something about David trying to find him a girlfriend. We’d love to know what Victoria makes of it all.”
