DAVID Beckham is seen parked illegally on a yellow line and holding his phone while at the wheel.
Goldenballs, 44, appeared to be texting while sat near a busy junction.
Cars had to pull out to pass his £146,000 Mercedes-AMG G63.
He kept the engine running for over 20 minutes and had headlights and wipers on. Becks recently completed a driving ban.
He now faces a possible probe for illegal parking and using his mobile in a car that was not safely parked.
The former England football captain was spotted last Thursday November 28 between 3.57pm and 4.22pm at traffic lights in South Kensington, West London.
A witness said: “I couldn’t believe his audacity. He was texting furiously and oblivious to the rules.
“After his recent court trouble, I couldn’t believe my eyes.”
The star, worth a reported £300million, was waiting just 20 yards from the Union Car Park, where leaving a vehicle for one hour costs £4.50.
He had parked illegally beyond allotted bays, and next to a row of Santander bikes.
The SUV was making it tricky for vehicles turning right.
Nearby signs read: “No Stopping Mon-Fri 8.00–9.00am 3.00-5.00pm on entrance markings.”
A parking warden at the spot yesterday told The Sun: “He was sat there?! No way. That’s totally wrong. He’s in a whole heap of trouble. What a silly guy.”
Former cop and driving instructor Gary Small, 57, of Derby, said: “Beckham’s behaviour is a slap in the face for those who have lost loved ones as a result of crashes caused by drivers on their phones.
The penalty for being caught using a hand-held device while driving has been increased since the law was introduced in 2003.
It was originally just £30. Today, it is a Fixed Penalty Notice of £200, and six penalty points on your licence.
We contacted the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea over the yellow line parking.
What road rules say
IT is illegal to hold a phone in use while driving. The law still applies if you’re stopped at lights or queuing in traffic.
You can use a hand-held phone only if safely parked or need to call 999 in an emergency.
Even drivers using a hands-free kit can be prosecuted if police think they’ve been distracted.
If caught, they face six licence penalty points and a £200 fine, or a ban and a fine of up to £1,000 if it gets taken to court.
It is an offence to wait or park on yellow lines during their times of operation.
Car drivers are allowed a short grace period only if they are shifting bulky items.

Becks’ spokeswoman said: “No comment.”
He already had six licence penalty points when caught using a mobile in his £100,000 Bentley in London in November 2018.
