Victoria Beckham posts happy-family IGs calling David ‘the best daddy in the world’

Victoria Beckham posted two Instagrams of her husband, David Beckham, for Father’s Day. I tend to believe the rumors that David doesn’t like it that Victoria posts so many social media photos and videos of their four kids, but I guess he makes an exception when Posh is making him look like Father of the Year. Victoria gushed about David, calling him “truly the best daddy” and “the best daddy in the world.” It honestly feels like she’s trying too hard, but maybe that’s really how she feels. And to be fair, David does seem like a great father. He just seems like a sh–ty husband.

Meanwhile, after weeks of divorce and separation rumors, apparently there were some strange claims that the Beckhams split… with their longtime manager. But the Beckhams denied this split as well:

David and Victoria Beckham have today slammed claims they’ve split from their joint management company. It had been reported that former footballer David, 43, had moved on from the couple’s advisor Simon Fuller with a “fresh young team.”

The claims, published in The Mail On Sunday, stated Victoria was staying loyal to manager Simon Fuller, who had overseen Brand Beckham for 23 years. A source told the publication: “Fuller isn’t David’s manager anymore and is no longer involved in the day-to-day running of him or his business.”

However, the Beckhams’ representative has insisted that there is “no change” to David’s business, adding: “Simon Fuller is and remains David Beckham’s longterm business partner.”

Hm… I do think something fishy is going on, but I’ve thought that for a while now. If Victoria and David do split at some point – maybe by the end of this year? – then what are the chances that they only announce their split after they’ve already gotten some of their assets and careers separated? David and Victoria’s finances are all entangled with each other, and it’s true that “Beckham” is a global brand. It’s a brand that can withstand a divorce, honestly, but of course they’ll need separate managers if they do divorce. I don’t know… it feels like there are moves being made behind the scenes and they’re not ready to tell us about it.

Here are some photos of Posh at JFK yesterday. I like her outfit, I just wish those pants weren’t so long. And I wish Posh didn’t look so sad.

    Ah yes, best Daddy, buy notice she is not saying best husband. True, he might be awesome towards the kids and they love him dearly, but their relationship seems just out of sorts to me. Call me crazy, but that’s the impression I get.

    • Esmom says:

      I noticed that, too, seemed like a deliberate choice of words.

      The photo of him with his cards and gifts looks so staged to me with the store bought cards and coffee mugs, lol.

    • Lisa Giametti says:

      Well, to be fair, it wasn’t “Husband’s Day”, it was Father’s Day.

    • SM says:

      It’s not a problem she is congratulating the father of her childeren on Father’s day, but with Victoria it is permanent, she keeps posting pics of him and commenting about best daddy. Which….starts to feel like she is trying to convince heraelf he ia good. Also as a parent my self, we call each other mom and dad only when we talk to our kid directly, I would not be happy of my husbamd isisted on refering to me a mommy in front of the whole world as well as when talking to me. It just reduces the partner to their role as a parent.

    It seems she is mopping the floor!

  3. KBB says:

    She is trying so hard to maintain their relationship. I don’t even think these posts are to convince the public, I think they are to show David how much she cares. And he is just totally checked out. He is always turned away from her in photos as she is cuddling up to him. It’s just sad to see.

  4. Audrey says:

    Yes, they’re quietly separating their businesses and finances. I hear he has a new girlfriend he wants to show in public. I bet the announcement comes around the 4th of July or end of the World Cup when we’re distracted by other things.

  5. Jenns says:

    Just a little note – if you’re a bad husband, you’re not a great father. And I’d say the same about a wife/mother. You are their example of a healthy, respectful relationship, however that is defined by the couple. Now, that being said, who knows what’s going on in the background, but I hate that he’s being given passes on some level because at least he’s a great dad.

    I like Victoria, and how hard she’s worked for her family and her business. I hope she’s OK.

    • Esmom says:

      I don’t know, that’s kinda harsh. I don’t think it’s fair to say that someone is a bad parent just because they might be having problems in their marriage. Yes, modeling a wonderful relationship would be great but that’s just not always a reality.

      • Ange says:

        I think it depends what those problems are. If you’re running around cheating, being emotionally/physically abusive, disrespecting the other parent or generally just working all your nonsense out in front of the kid then yes being a bad husband is making you a bad parent. If there are genuine problems that are a result of other factors but you’re working them out respectfully and away from your kids then they can be exclusive.

    • Inad says:

      I don’t think that’s fair. Many men are in fact good fathers without being good husbands. If David isn’t abusive and has just checked out, that’s normal. It’s okay to fall out of love and separate. That doesn’t make either of them bad anything. Just two people who called it quits. David very obviously loves his kids and has a great relationship with them. Just because he and his wife may not have ‘it’ anymore doesn’t make him any less of a dad.

  6. JUK says:

    Been hearing mumblings that David has got one of Harpers teachers pregnant…. Not sure if this is a rumour that’s circled before but the timing seems appropriate given their weirdness lately…

  7. Astrid says:

    Posh looks like a homeless person in a bathrobe and pajamas at JFK

  8. df says:

    It’s so sad that she’s constantly ig-ing pictures of him but he doesn’t for her

  9. Blonde555 says:

    How can she be a fashion designer and not know to hem her pants?

  10. ELL says:

    This is all so bizarre- she seems to have been over posting family pictures recently in a bid to prove everything is okay? I definitely think there’s a split coming and I tend to believe the gossip about him getting one of Harper’s teachers pregnant- I don’t know, I just have a funny feeling something big is about to come out…

  11. Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

    There’s more to say, but for now I don’t think Simon Fuller has been calling the shots for a while. It must be Simon Oliveira. He’s worked with David for a very long time and they are close, but it’s true that the Beckhams (especially David) needs a fresh young team. He’s probably the same person who gave that dodgy comment on the last coverage about the recent split rumours calling it a “crock of sxxx” and “fake news” lol.

    The last few months (and years) have been very weird between D & V publicly, but you can within the last month after the Royal Wedding that David has made more of an effort to appear normal with V and look like at least he likes her. Before that, he wouldn’t even like her Instagram photos OR touch her. How crazy is that?

  12. Meggles says:

    God how trashy and attention-whorish to stage a Father’s Day shoot after being linked to a cheating scandal for the 586th time. And they couldn’t wrangle the kids to be part of this PR stunt? Just sent some poor intern to the nearest Hallmark store?

    Those kids are going to need a lot of therapy.

    • Mo' Comments Mo' Problems says:

      They actually did wrangle Brooklyn to appear with David on @Instagram’s Father’s Day coverage on Stories lol. However, there was a charitable twist to it haha. PR Boost boost boost+.

  13. C-No says:

    Those pants are ridiculous but I kind of love that pants that cover your entire foot and then some are the thing now. I’m 6 feet tall, I live in capris, maybe those will actually be a normal length for me! Well not Posh’s, she’s teeny, but like the Target version of them.

  14. Zoe says:

    I remember, years ago, when there were the rumours about DB and Rebecca Loos, all over the press in the UK, and they were attending a film premiere or award thing and she had draped herself all over him, literally slobbering, I felt so bad for her as she was clearly trying to make a point in public about how much in love they were. Poor Posh.
    I’ve always thought that she felt as though she was punching about her weight with him. Which is a shame.

    • Aurelia says:

      God, I remember that. She was in a short orange chiffon dress. Slobbering for sure. I saw 2 days ago David has split from posh’s management team. Defo separating their businesses. They are only denying that they are not divorcing for the kids. To make them feel better. They are probably marriage contracted until the end of the year.
