In a New Netflix Series, It’s “Tiring” David Beckham Addresses his OCD Struggles. He reveals that after his family goes to bed, the 47-year-old former footballer spends hours cleaning his home because he can’t stand mess.
Beckham has previously discussed his battle with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Now, he’s sharing how it shows in his obsession with keeping his home completely clean confessing that in his pursuit of perfection, he even cleans the soot from glass candles.
In an interview for his next, as of yet unannounced Netflix documentary series, Beckham said: “I clean it so well, I’m not sure it’s actually appreciated so much by my wife, in all honesty. The fact that when everyone’s in bed I then go around, clean the candles, turn the lights on to the right setting, make sure everywhere is tidy,” he adds.
“I hate coming down in the morning and there are cups and plates and, you know, bowls. It’s tiring going around every single candle cleaning it. I clip the candle wax, I clean the glass, that’s my pet hate, the smoke around the inside of a candle … I know, it’s weird.”
Beckham’s wife Victoria also addressed her husband’s confession in the teaser tape, telling him he’s “perfect” and claiming he’s “appreciated” (which was shown at a launch event in London).
Following that, Beckham made a joke, asking, “Why does it sound so sarcastic when she says that?” The next scene in the clip showed Victoria getting ready to leave the house and announcing to her husband that she was “off to the fashion factory” to work, but Beckham interrupted her by saying, “No, where are you really going?”
