David Beckham was warned off swimming in the Amazon during the recent shooting of a documentary — for fear of a deadly fish swimming into his genitalia, sources tell Confidenti@l.

The 38-year-old Becks, famously nicknamed “Goldenballs,” was told by the production’s medical supervisors not to go for a dip during filming in the Brazilian rainforest because of the so-called “vampire fish.”

The fish, called the candiru, is said to enter people through their urethras and eat their way through their private parts.

And the candiru — small, virtually transparent and nearly impossible to see even in clear water — reportedly targets people’s bottoms, too.
