Nicola Peltz’s Dad Is Suing A Set Of Wedding Planners Who Dropped Out To Get Back Their $159,000 Deposit
Back in April 2022, Nicola Peltz became Mrs. Wifey Peltz-Beckham when she married the untrained aspiring master chef/son of David and Victoria “Posh” Beckham, Brooklyn Beckham. It was obviously an obscene display of extreme wealth and pretension when 2 (rich as hell families) Becomes 1 (insufferable unit of hoity-toity twats). And because accused nanny-knocker Nicola was involved, dramatics ensued. First, It was reported that Posh was upset because Nicola didn’t wear a Victoria Beckham wedding dress, while Nicola argued she chose another designer because the VB atelier couldn’t get the job done. But family members weren’t the only poor souls in Nicola’s crosshairs. Would you please think of the revolving door of traumatized wedding planners? Her billionaire dad, Nelson Peltz, is now going after the second of three separate wedding planners Nicola ran through to get back the $159,000 deposit he paid and the legal fees he’s spending to sue them.
Page Six says Nelson, who is reportedly worth $1.4 billion, filed a suit to recoup the deposit he paid the pair planners in March 2022 for Nicola and Brooklyn’s April 2022 wedding. Yes, that close to the big day.
According to the Daily Mail, the “Bates Motel” alum’s billionaire father, Nelson Peltz, filed a lawsuit against wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba for refusing to give back the $159,000 deposit he gave them.
In the lawsuit, Nelson, 80, is claiming that he and his wife, Claudia Peltz, hired Grijalba and Braghin in March 2022 through their firm, Plan Design Events.
It’s pertinent to know that Nicole and Arianna were hired so close to the big day because the first planner the Peltzes hired either left or got the boot. But when they signed on, it was just one Victoria Beckham leg extension away from the big day arriving, and they had trouble managing the over 500-person guest list. So they ran for the hills after only nine days due to their inability to handle an event associated with her and Brooklyn’s “celebrity” and took the deposit with them.
However, after only nine days on the job, Grijalba and Braghin decided not to move forward with Nicola and Beckham because they could not handle the couple’s guest list, which included more than 500 people.
“The celebrity of the wedding couple combined with the anticipated attendance of many high-profile guests required that the wedding planner have the expertise and staffing to plan, coordinate and execute a wedding event of the expected caliber and complexity,” the lawsuit reads, per the Daily Mail.
And Daddy Peltz even gave everyone a taste of what those poor planners had to deal with by including screenshots of text conversations between them and Nicola! Nicola was tired of having to correct things.
Nelson also included some of the text messages his daughter allegedly sent the wedding planners in the lawsuit, including one where the actress said she was “tired” of fixing their mistakes after they said Lewis Hamilton RSVP’d “yes” although he told the couple he could not attend the wedding.
The “Transformers: Age of Extinction” actress allegedly wrote, “Lewis Hamilton did NOT RSVP. So explain why his names [sic] on the list please.”
“We spoke to him. He can’t come so explain why you said he rsvpd yes,” she added.
Grijalba tried to explain that she needed more time to get familiar with the app that the virtual guest list was on.
“I need time to do this,” she allegedly wrote. “I’m going to take a moment to learn the app and send you the information, I hate looking like a fool but I hate the most not giving you what you need ASAP. I will be back soon.”
Nicola, who was seemingly upset, allegedly replied, “That’s not true. He didn’t rsvp AT ALL.”
And Daddy didn’t like the planners’ references to having to drink their faces off to be able to put up with this shit.
One week before the RSVP exchange, Grijalba allegedly posted in the group chat that she was “going for a tequila before her head exploded,” to which the “Last Airbender” actress allegedly replied, “Yes queen!!!!”
A third planner took over after their departure and got the job done. Oof, not the “yes, queen! though. That’s a sure kiss of death when you’re dealing with an upper-crust hellion who has no business using “yes, queen!” Perhaps “wedding planner” can be Brooklyn’s next career du jour! I’m sure he probably got to observe all of the inner workings of the profession as he observed the tumult from the inside of Nicola’s handbag.
