Nicola Peltz Beckham, 27, has responded to the rumors again and says she has a falling out with husband Brooklyn Bekcham’s mother, Victoria Beckham. Brooklyn, 23, was one of four stars to appear on the cover of Variety’s 2022 Power of Young Hollywood issue, and in the accompanying interview, Nicola said she thinks the speculation started when she decided to do a Haute- Couture dress by Valentino to wear for her wedding a designed by Victoria.
“I wanted it and I really wanted it, and then a few months later she realized her atelier couldn’t make it, so I had to choose another dress,” Nicola revealed. “She didn’t say you couldn’t wear it; I didn’t say I didn’t want to wear it. Brooklyn, who has lived his whole life in the limelight thanks to Victoria and his former soccer star dad David Beckham, added, “I’ve learned that they’re always going to try to write stuff like that. They will always try and put people down. But everyone understands what is good.
While speaking to Grazia in September, Nicola doubled down on her previous comments. “Well, I was planning on wearing Victoria’s wedding dress,” Nicola said. “And I was really excited to be able to wear a design that my future mother-in-law created. I thought that was so beautiful and such a beautiful story.”
Nicola’s close friend and stylist Leslie Fremar and mother Claudia Heffner Peltz helped design the dress. “I was like, ‘Oh, this is going to be so fun. One of my best friends and my mom.’ We connected to start designing the dress and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything,” recalls Nicola. “Victoria called my mum and said her studio couldn’t do it, so I got involved my mum and Leslie and said, ‘Well, unfortunately that can’t happen, so what’s the next step?’ I’ve been a fan of Valentino and her couture for so long and was very fortunate to be able to travel there [the atelier] to try on the dress. That really happened.”
She continued, “When I read things that say [things like] I never intended to wear one [Victoria Beckham] Dress or something, it hurts my feelings. I try not to let it, but it just isn’t the truth. It’s just a little bit unfortunate when you’re like, ‘Oh, people think that,’ but it just isn’t true.” Referring to David and Victoria, Nicola adds, “They are amazing in-laws.”
Amid all the speculation, Brooklyn says he stands behind his wife “100%.” He adds, “To be honest, my wife is obviously my number one priority and I never want to see her upset./ When people say ridiculous things, we just talk about it and just move on.”
Brooklyn and Nicola wed April 9 at the Peltz family mansion in Palm Beach, FL. While discussing her relationship with Brooklyn, she previously told Variety over the phone, “The great thing about us is that we don’t need each other. We’re just so in love. There’s nothing I need from him or he needs from me.” The couple fled to the south of France for their honeymoon over the summer, where they were photographed relaxing on a boat and showing lots of PDAs. Meanwhile, Victoria needs the Address rumors of discord publicly yourself.
