The Beckhams may be months away from their move to the states, but they're already hobnobbing with new celebrity friends overseas. After dining at the London Nobu last night, David and Victoria met up with none other than Diddy at Automat. Diddy must have been thrilled, as we learned from an interview with The Sun, he's a huge Beckham admirer. Here are highlights:

"David is a really special man. Him coming over to the States is like the Beatles going over there. Football isn't that big in America at the moment, but David is going to be a hero and bring the sport up to another level."

He added: "You can tell just how passionate he is about his football when he gave up his captaincy for England. He's going to be a legend. He's doing a very powerful thing for football worldwide.

Diddy has also put David and wife VICTORIA in touch with close contacts at his estate agent's realtor. He added: "I'll help him settle in. The US is my area. He's got my full support and the backing of all my people."

Okay there Diddy, calm down. Not sure exactly when Diddy became such a soccer fan but he's loving himself some David Beckham! We can't really blame him, however, we share in his excitement for entirely different reasons.
