The Future Of “The Peltz Beckham Empire” Is Uncertain As The Beckham And Peltz Families Continue To Feud
I’ve got to be honest with you, I thought initial reports that Victoria Beckham was in a blood feud with her new daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz, were a bit of a goof. Just a fun, petty little diversion. I certainly could not have predicted that in just a matter of months, the Beckhams and the Peltz would be settin’ up on their palatial porches, shotguns at the ready, willing to risk it all to become the Hatfields and McCoys of the 1%. Boy was I wrong. Page Six reports that Brooklyn Beckham’s parents, the model and the footballer, are going toe-to-toe with Nicola’s parents, the billionaire and his wife, over the future of the burgeoning Peltz Beckham empire. Sources say the cessation of mutual Instagram liking between Victoria and Nicola is merely “collateral damage” in a fight that is threatening to destroy them all, or at the very least, Thanksgiving in Turks and Caicos.
In what appears to be a clash between old money and new, Nicola’s billionaire parents, Nelson and Claudia Peltz, would like to help and financially back Brooklyn and Nicola in whatever venture might pop into one of their heads while taking a shit, whereas Brooklyn’s more old-fashioned and comparatively impoverished parents, Victoria and David Beckham, believe that “everyone should make their own way up in the world,” values they instilled in Brooklyn when they made him work in a cafe for a minute before handing him Vogue on a platter in order to legitimize his career as a “chef.” But now everything’s gone all topsy-turvy and the Peltz/Beckhams may be pivoting from chef/actress to mogul/moguly. Page Six reports:
Amid rumors of tension between Victoria Beckham and her new daughter-in-law, Nicola Peltz, Page Six is told the trouble within the Beckham and Peltz clans is more widespread.
“Victoria and Nicola are just collateral damage. It’s not just about two women — it’s two families coming together,” said one highly placed Palm Beach source.
“It’s pretty obvious there’s an issue between the two families. Everybody needs to find their place. They’re just not quite connecting yet.”
The problems are not said to be between Brooklyn, 23, and his new in-laws, billionaire investor Nelson Peltz and his wife, Claudia. In fact, Nelson is offering to back his son-in-law in whatever venture he wants. According to the source, the chatter in Palm Beach is that the young couple could create their own empire, á la Brooklyn’s parents’ “Brand Beckham.”
It’s believed that Brooklyn and Nicola, a 28-year-old actress, would love to follow in the Beckhams’ footsteps by launching clothing, beauty and perfume lines.
Things are so bad between the families that when Nicola and Brooklyn were honeymooning in Italy, with her parents, the Beckhams “were holidaying at the same time on another yacht nearby and it was not clear whether the families saw each other.” Nicola obviously knows which side of her bread is buttered even if Brooklyn has never seen a piece of buttered toast in his life, much less made one. Nicola is very close with her mom and apparently, they both have a lot of ideas about ways Papa Peltz can flush all that easily earned interest money down the yacht toilet and into the sea.
“There is a very deliberate move orchestrated by Nicola and her mom and funded by Nelson. There is a reason why Brooklyn and Nicola are now ‘Peltz Beckham.’ It’s all about branding,” the highly placed source said.
“I think that Nicola and her mom come up with ideas, Nelson can fund anything and he says yes! But for David and Victoria, it has to have some substance.”
To wit, Nicola is set to make her writing and directing debut in a film called Lola James, in which she will also star. According to Wikipedia, principal photography “began on March 1, 2021 and concluded on April 15, 2021.” I’m sure it will be a triumph when it’s finally released and shown at Victoria’s funeral after she finds out her son was always destined to be a junior senator for the Great State of Florida, a dream she stifled because it didn’t have enough substance.
