David and Victoria Beckham’s oldest son, Brooklyn Beckham, first began dating American actor Nicola Peltz in October 2019.
Once their relationship was official, Nicola would often use Instagram to share pictures taken with Brooklyn as well as with his family.
Brooklyn And Nicola Peltz Beckham Break Silence On the Victoria Beckham Feud Rumors
Nicola often posted photos of herself with Brooklyn’s younger sister, Harper Beckham, and referred to the now-11-year-old as her “little sister.”
They enjoyed “girls’ days” at Victoria’s London store, which Nicola called “a dream,” and she even purchased them matching rings. Victoria was always one of the first to like and comment on Nicola’s posts.
Brooklyn proposed to Nicola in the summer of 2020 after he spent three months stranded in the US with her and her family due to strict lockdown rules around air travel.
They did not publicly share the news until they’d returned to the UK and reunited with his parents, who proceeded to throw them an intimate engagement party at their Cotswolds mansion.
Nicola also often posts that she spent at the family’s Cotswolds home, and was quick to share exchanges with Brooklyn’s younger brothers, Romeo, and Cruz Beckham.
However, as Brooklyn and Nicola’s April 2022 wedding drew nearer, rumors began to surface that there was tension between the bride and her future in-laws.
Fans did notice that the once-constant Instagram interactions between Nicola and Brooklyn’s family had become more sparse and Harper stopped appearing in Nicola’s photos.
Victoria raised eyebrows when she repeatedly called Brooklyn and Nicola “Mr. and Mrs. Beckham” as she shared photos from their big day, despite the newlyweds choosing to take on the joint last name “Peltz Beckham.”
Nicola did not post a single wedding photo that included Brooklyn’s relatives to her Instagram page — not even in her nine-picture carousel that she posted alongside the caption “family is everything to me.”
There was speculation that the two women had fallen out because Nicola didn’t let Victoria design her dress, a theory that was fueled when Nicola shared a photo of the Valentino couture gown that she did wear and wrote: “My dream dress thank you @lesliefremar @maisonvalentino.”
Victoria also escalated the situation when she shared a selection of photos of wedding guests who did wear her designs and wrote: “So proud to have dressed some of my favorite ladies and best friends for the occasion.”
Earlier this month, a source informed Page Six that tension had been bubbling between the two families for some time, saying: “They can’t stand each other and don’t talk. The build-up to the wedding was horrendous.”
The insider added that Nicola and her family did not want Victoria “to be any part of the planning” and would often leave her out of the loop with “minimal” communication.
They also claimed that Nicola was jealous of Victoria’s global fame and the attention that she commands, particularly in the build-up to her wedding day. Meanwhile, Victoria was said to have been hurt when Brooklyn shared Nicola’s Tatler magazine cover that called her “the new Mrs. Beckham.”
The source said that there ended up being “non-stop petty drama” that has ultimately driven a wedge between Brooklyn and his parents.
And while Victoria has not publicly commented on any of the speculations, Brooklyn and Nicola have broken their silence in his new profile in Variety.
Brooklyn (who is now known as Brooklyn Peltz Beckham) appeared on the magazine cover as part of the publication’s “Power of Young Hollywood” feature, which also included covers showing Euphoria star Angus Cloud, actor Halle Bailey, and musician Becky G.
Brooklyn secured the spot for his upcoming venture into the food industry and showed off his cooking talents during the interview; however, it was his personal life that became the focus.
Nicola informed Variety that she was initially going to wear one of Victoria’s designs until Victoria realized that her studio would be unable to fit in the work required.
“I was going to [wear Victoria’s design] and I really wanted to, and then a few months down the line, she realized that her atelier couldn’t do it,” Nicola explained. “So then I had to pick another dress. She didn’t say you can’t wear it; I didn’t say I didn’t want to wear it. That’s where it started, and then they ran with that.”
And Brooklyn didn’t not back from the statement, insisting that “everyone gets along” as he dismissed the rumors, alleging them to be tabloid rumors.
“I’ve learned they’re always going to try to write stuff like that,” he told Variety. “They’re always going to try and put people down. But everyone gets along, which is good.”
“I always wish them well, the haters,” Brooklyn told Variety. “I’m just doing what I love doing, staying healthy, being happy, and that’s what it is.”
