If someone had said back in 1999 that David Beckham and Posh Spice were going to last 19 years of extremely suspect fashion choices, several iterations of bangs (on both), and fighting over who got to use the hair straightener, I would have laughed and said Spice World had better odds of nabbing Best Picture at the Oscars. Alas, David and Victoria Beckham get to have the last laugh by posting a joint Insta-smirk to social media to show they’re celebrating their 19th anniversary with fine wine and probably snickering at how their bank accounts look compared to the other Spices and soccer players they’ve had to work with over the years.

Not long after the rumor resurfaced that Victoria Beckham and David Beckham were ending their 19-year marriage, The Sun reported that they’re not splitting up, because they’ve got a $500 million brand to keep alive. Something as abstract as “a $500 million brand” is a bit hard to visualise, but thankfully The Sun has put it into a perspective I can handle: fancy jewelry! See that giant yellow rock on Vicky’s finger? Apparently that’s just one of 14 engagement rings in her collection.
It’s Thursday and I hadn’t yet seen any updates about the rumored Victoria and David Beckham break up this week, so I knew it was only a matter of time.
Hello! Magazine says that Posh took to the podium at the Forbes Women’s Summit in New York earlier this week and used the opportunity to talk about her husband. Damnit, Victoria: it’s a women’s summit and you couldn’t pass the Bechdel test for five minutes? Continue reading
The rumor going around is that after 19 years of marriage, Victoria Beckham and David Beckham are over. Some people on Twitter claimed that David has knocked up their daughter’s teacher, and it was only a matter of time before they called it quits. Both their reps denied such a thing was about to take place, and Victoria, David, and their whole family were full steam ahead for an upcoming photo spread in Vogue. Some might assume they’re staying together for the kids. According to The Sun (hold out your palms while I distribute these salt grains), Posh and Becks are also staying together for the money.
We sort of yawned our way into the weekend last week when news broke that British bookies had suspended betting because David and Victoria Beckham were this close to announcing their split. Well, apparently the two of them emerged from their respective wings at the Beckham estate to have a real laugh and to ring up Vogue to make sure their big happy family spread is still a go next month.
It’s been a while since the Posh and Becks glory days when Victoria Beckham thought her “Innocent Girl” was going to beat out Kylie Minogue’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” (LOL!) and you couldn’t open a paper in England without news that David Beckham was rubbing up on some non-Posh rump. Alas, in their mature years, Vicky B has taken to her fashion brand, David is building a soccer stadium in Miami, and they’ve supposedly made it work – even if it means a bit of distance between them. Alas, if you want to believe one report, David went the distance and got their daughter’s teacher preggo, and betting started and ended on when Posh and Becks will announce they’re splitting!
