David and Victoria Beckham rake in 65m

David and Victoria Beckham made £65 million last year.

The power couple - who are worth a whopping £508 million - are believed to have raked in the huge amount pre-tax through their various business interests including Victoria's fashion label and David's endorsement deals.

This includes £14.1 million through David's Footwork Productions, £34.1 million in sales from Victoria's fashion brand and £17.2 million from David's licensing and commercial interests.

The Sun reports that according to figures filed with Companies House, Beckham Brand Holdings (BBH) made post-tax profits of £12.6million, and David's Footwork Productions firm raised an extra £12.5million.

They also paid themselves and their manager Simon Fuller £3 million each from BBH and David got an extra £6.5 from Footwork Productions.

David and Victoria's children are also making a name for themselves in the spotlight, with both Brooklyn, 16 and Romeo, 13, branching out into modelling.

And while Brooklyn is passionate about soccer, David admitted he was "relieved" when Romeo decided it wasn't the career for him.

The retired sportsman was initially "devastated" when the Burberry model told him he doesn't want to follow in his footsteps but is happy for the teenager to pursue his other "passions" instead.

He said: "The other day Romeo turned round to me and said he didn't want to play football any more. Part of me was devastated but part of me was relieved, too.

"He's got other passions and I like that."
