So far it hasn't really blown up or anything, but the rumors about David Beckham having an affair with former Dancing With the Stars cast member Katherine Jenkins still came out of left field. When I first heard the report, I had to do a double take. David Beckham cheating on Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice? For reals?!?
Katherine has publicly denied the rumors, while David and Victoria have remained pretty quiet thus far. Odds are good that there is no truth to the claim at all, and things will hopefully die down and go back to normal for the Beckhams very soon. But if David is feeling the slightest bit of embarrassment, all he has to do is think about the scandals that have rocked the lives of other professional athletes, making these stupid cheating rumors pale in comparison.
Take a look at the photos below to see six professional athletes who've dealt with much more humiliation than David will ever experience.
What do you think is the worst sports scandal we've ever seen?

Brett Favre was sexting before sexting was even considered cool. He's like, the sexting pioneer of sports. (Gah.)
