Victoria & David Beckham barely spoke to each other at the British Fashion Awards

The British Fashion Awards 2018

Monday night, David Beckham came out to the British Fashion Awards with his wife Victoria Beckham. Victoria was being honored, even though her fashion line is struggling, and David tends to support her when she’s doing something related to her business. He possibly supports her because he’s financially invested in her business. I think that’s the only time he shows up for Victoria: when it’s business. As we’ve been covering all year, it really seems like the Beckhams’ marriage is on its last leg. Victoria seems happy enough to weather the storm, but David has built a new life for himself in Miami, and he’s barely ever in London anymore. According to Page Six, David only arrived in London after a week of partying in Miami:

David Beckham turned up on the red carpet with designer wife Victoria Bekcham in London on Monday, when she was honored at the British Fashion Awards at Royal Albert Hall. The event — where they were joined by son Brooklyn — came after a long week of solo partying for soccer stud David all over Miami during Art Basel.

“He was out till 5 a.m. every night,” a nightlife source tells Page Six. Beckham — who launched a Major League Soccer squad in Miami — was spotted living it up during the starry art weekend at Soho Beach House, at Los Fuegos at Faena, at a private party at Wayne Boich’s mansion, and at Bob Zangrillo’s $20 million home.

It amazes me that David’s Miami activities are so undercover – I guess with his money, connections and general discretion, he can do whatever he wants with whoever he wants. I do feel sorry for Victoria though – she wants this marriage to work. She wants to be with David forever. And he has checked out. Incidentally, there were stories about the Beckhams barely even speaking to each other inside the British Fashion Awards:

David and Victoria put on a show of unity as they were papped leaving The British Fashion Awards, but sources claim that inside it was a very different story. The couple, who have been married 19 years, were spotted with their backs turned against each other – despite being sat at the same table – as they opted to chat to other guests instead. An insider at the glamorous bash at London’s Royal Albert Hall, claimed that Victoria looked ‘furious’ as attentions turned to David – despite her being the one nominated for a design award.

Host Jack Whitehall praised the former footballer in his opening speech saying he had stolen the show at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May. As the couple’s reaction flashed up on screen Victoria was said to be ‘scowling’.

The source alleged to The Sun: “They sat together for the ceremony but moved apart at the after party. they were seen briefly speaking to each other once in about 25 minutes. You’d expect Brand Beckham to do their schmoozing together, but David had only [friend David Gardner] by his side as he made his big entrance.”

The insider also claimed that David appeared ‘charmed’ by Rita Ora as they chatted together inside the venue.

LOL, was the insider Rita Ora?? Some days, I’m just so disappointed in David. I would have hoped that he would be “present” and fighting for his marriage. But nowadays, a split seems inevitable. I just think Posh and Becks will drag out the “separate lives” thing for a while longer.

    I, too, hoped that he would be the present one this many years later and doing all he can for the marriage.

    Truly thought this appearance at the awards show and seemingly genuine, but very little PDA was an inkling of hope and love restored between them.

    He’s partying too much and working too much. He’s more interested in interacting with younger women than his own wife. 😪

    Also…wtf is up with Brooklyn’s hair and appearance? He’s looking so bad. He needs a shape up.

    • minx says:

      Brooklyn is lucky he has rich parents. He seems like such a dud.

    • SK says:


      Gosh, I mean, most couples I know turn to the people around them and chat when at events. They chat to each other constantly, when out they tend to chat to others! I didn’t know couples had to be sewn to each other at events in order to be “in love”. Interesting…

      In any case, what I find gross about this is that David is still a parent. If he is checked out of the marriage he should still be doing his fair share of the parenting – and living in another city out partying ‘til 5am for weeks at a time is not exactly present parenting.

      I like Posh a lot, I really do. I tend to think of him as a cheater and nice but dim. Then a friend of mine who was British special services something something (he can’t say exactly what once he went past a certain level) has a former mate from the army who moved into personal security. He worked for the Beckhams, and according to my mate, he says David was down to earth and really great and Posh was a horrendous b*tch. Which made me weirdly sad… Apparently she would treat her security staff like crap and expect them to do things like carry her shopping bags for her (my friend says security should NEVER carry things because that negates their purpose – they need both hands free to protect their client, they are not a PA or lackey, they are highly trained protection). According to said friend, David had to intervene a lot when she was being awful, and eventually found this guy an equivalent job with someone else who was great to work with.

      I don’t know what to think of that… for some reason I still love Posh after hearing it, even though I disapprove of this kind of behaviour. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    I don’t know if it’s for the sake of their brand but jeez Victoria let him go.

  3. billypilgrim says:

    “despite being sat at the same table…”

    Being sat? Umm…you mean being seated?

    Or is that a British expression?

    • Dee says:

      “Being sat” sounds fine to me (Canadian). It is the passive construction, as in: somebody sat them together/put them next to each other in the seating chart.

      On another note, as someone who has been married forever, like the Beckhams, I rarely have deep meaningful conversations with my partner at public events. We talk to each other daily; parties are for chatting with others, esp work parties.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Yeah but it’s well known that regardless of how into Victoria might have been at some point, he has always had side pieces and has always been interested to talking to other girls. A friend of mine was at a party with him in Dubai about 10 years ago and let’s just say that he wasn’t acting like a married man.

      • nicole says:

        My friend works as a booking agent for London Fashion week, and she says it is well known in those circles that he has women all over the place and plays away all the time, he is also supposed to have gotten there daughters teacher pregnant, hes a total narcisstic douchebag.

    • lingli says:

      Grammatically it’s incorrect as the passive is formed from the auxilliary verb “to be” plus the past participle of the lexical verb, which here is “seated”. (English teacher…)

      However, it’s really common in spoken British English to use “sat” instead of the past or present participle (“I was just sat there!”). I’m assuming this is a quote from a tabloid or similar which tend to use a lot of the same conversational conventions. Makes my eyelid twitch a bit but it’s not “wrong”, exactly.

    • Starkiller says:

      It’s about on par with an American saying “ain’t” or “don’t got no”.

    • JadedBrit says:

      @BillyPilgrim The whole “being sat” grammar debacle is very much a British class/regional phenomenon. Working class/Northern – “sat”. Middle and above – “seated” (unless you’re Princess Anne and will do whatever you may to irritate Father). It’s one of my absolute Hates; implies not only sloppy grammar but a lack of agency: who forcibly sat X in their current location, and are they permitted to move from it?

  4. Chaine says:

    I think he’s just putting in appearances for her brand in the hopes to heighten her profile and push her business into the black so that he feels less guilty when he inevitably dumps her. He’s probably just waiting for her to turn a profit.

  5. Laura says:

    Oh my goodness, stoooooooooop! All year there have been all these rumors about them, they are fine! Not all marriages have to be completely lovie dovie 24/7

    • tback says:

      I’ve been married 19 years myself and this story got a *shrug* from me. I’m not familiar with how much PDA they used to engage in, but it would not be unusual for my husband and me to circulate separately at a party or gathering, or to take separate trips, or go to events without the other. Marriage isn’t easy, and 19 years is a long time, and long relationships ebb & flow.

  6. Ellie says:

    Why didn’t she just go on tour with the Spice Girls if her clothing line is suffering so much?

    • Monicack says:

      And that would help how? Different demographics…and she would end up a complete laughingstock.

      • Ellie says:

        Spice Girl shows are selling out and they’re having to add more shows because of demand, while her fashion line fails. I’m speaking from a financial perspective.

  7. Fluffy Princess says:

    He always seem so distant with her. Compare the photos if he is just with one or more of his kids. The love he has for them just oooozes out of him–like he’s so proud and loves them so much. He looks like an iceberg next to Victoria all the time. All the time looking in different directions when photographed together. Look how she tilts he head towards him and he’s completely looking the other way.

    Sad. I bet in the next few years is the separation. . .

  8. Monicack says:

    She should tell him what she wants, what she really really wants.
    I’ll see myself out now.

  9. Mrs. Peel says:

    I love Victoria’s dress – pockets are so rare yet so necessary. She looks great.

  10. Dani says:

    They look like strangers in the header pic. Girl let him go. Do you. David’s always been so scummy,

  11. Wasabi says:

    Don’t care about Beckham drama but the Rita Ora bit is gold. Her PR people are working HARD!
