David Beckhamis reported to have paid himself a whopping £14.1m salary last year.
The newly retired footballer is claimed by financial news specialists Bloomberg to have given himself the hefty pay packet via his sponsorship and image-rights company Footwork Productions Ltd.
A rise of six per cent on 2011, the money is largely believed to have been generated by lucrative sponsor deals with the likes of H&M, Sainsbury's and Sky.
And Becks is unlikely to be skint anytime soon, having recently sold "Beckingham Palace" in Hertfordshire for a healthy £12m - according to reports.
Dave was recently spotted with a new "Victoria" hand tattoo.
