Another day, another David Beckham rumor, but this time we hear on excellent authority that should Beckham be successful in getting an MLS team in Miami, he and wife Victoria will indeed seek a Miami residence. This insider says “They are zeroing in on downtown.”

Jim Belushi, Emilio Estefan and director Kenny Ortega had dinner Tuesday at Joe's Stone Crabs to discuss a feature film being shot in January in Miami. Estefan is the producer.

Russell Simmons was seen saying sayonara to Art Basel Sunday night at the Shore Club’s Red Room, where he snapped pictures of spray paint art by David Arquette and posed for pictures with fans.

After attending the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Dinner Friday night at Soho House, our spies saw Paris Hilton and a group of friends exiting Story night club a little after 6:30 a.m. with sunglasses on and heads down. About that dinner, though. It raised almost $70,000 for Simmons' RUSH Foundation. There, Top Chef's Tom Colicchio cooked for guests including Stephen Dorff and Tommy Hilfiger. Meanwhile at the dinner, the Hilton sisters refused to put on headphones and pose with DJ Irie because they didn’t want to mess up their hair. When our spy told Paris she should be used to it since she’s a “DJ,” she replied, “Yeah, but then it would be lame, because it just looks like I’m DJing and working, not with another DJ.” The sisters were seen having a low-key Sunday — sharing pizza and pasta at Serafina Dream South Beach.

Tennis titans Serena and Venus Williams had cocktails Saturday night at Catch Miami at The James Royal Palm.

Kevin Spacey was spotted Sunday enjoying the lavish Zuma brunch. Dressed in trim blue slacks and a gingham collared shirt, the actor was seen entertaining his guests and enjoying champagne. Designer Roberto Cavalli was spotted there, celebrating his son's birthday on Sunday night. Shockingly still hungry after that brunch, Spacey was seen having dinner at Katsuya later that night.

Martha Stewart was seen Saturday at Sagamore's Art Basel Brunch where she sat on a swing with Sagamore owner Martin Taplin on a permanent, interactive art piece installed in the hotel’s lobby before snapping photos of the hotel’s gourmet crepe stations and fruit displays.

Lenny Kravitz was seen Monday at the St. Regis Bal Harbour where our spy congratulated him on The Butler and The Hunger Games. Says the spy, “He walked in with two beautiful girls.”
