Blind Item #1

After at least a year of telling you the same thing, the mainstream media is finally beginning to talk about the fact that this foreign born former A+ list athlete turned permanent A list celebrity is no longer funding his A list celebrity wife's business. This has the business on the verge of shutting down for good.

HushHush said...

Posh will soon after join the Spice Girls reunion tour.

Eileen said...

I don’t know. I just looked up her net worth: 450 MILLION!!! His net worth is 900 million. Together their net worth is close to a BILLION dollars!! That’s insane! How is it possible that this is them?

Humor Me said...

And Good Morning Enty and thank you -

as I showed the DM article to Spouse, I commented, "I knew this!"

She wants to be a household name celebrity, but doesn't want to design for the average body type. Can't have it both ways, Vicki.

Guys! ☝🏻

I'm curious to know why David Beckham seems to be so ... angry? dismissive? of Victoria.

Most cheating husbands I imagine would still try to put up a good front and treat their wife well. However, for a few years now it has seemed David is barely tolerating her and has built up a lot of resentment.

Maybe she drinks too much? Maybe she is depressive and controlling? Maybe she is ... ? Something?

Why does he seem so mad at her?

hunter said...

By no means do I mean to imply he is cutting funding because he is "mad at her" I think that's just responsible financial management.

I'm curious on a more personal relationship level, so we may never know.

Do Tell said...

Her assets are probably largely tied up in business and real estate and not liquid. So on paper she might be worth that much, in reality, if she had to sell off the components of her business, and take whatever losses from what she couldn't liquidate, not as much.

Sara, Making It Work said...

He's a passive aggressive ass. Wants to divorce but doesn't want to look like the bad guy by leaving. So he's trying to force her to leave.

MDAnderson said...

He is also trying to buyout Simon Fuller so I suspect hunter that he’s done with keeping up the facade of brand Beckham. He’s humiliating her in public, being more reckless with the cheating, so to me he’s trying to make her leave him.

Don't believe everything you read

So although i've been reading various stories about this for a while now. I have to say that I'm really surprised Her Fashion Business is failing. Because I honestly never thought it would. But then again She never did do Red Carpet type Items for Hollywood Events and maybe that's why Her Business is failing.

LittleSisArsinoe said...

Maybe if she would crack a smile for the first time in a decade, he might see her business through another year. Not too crazy about her designs...most look like two large rectangles sewn together with arm holes.

BitterBlondin said...

@Eileen - right?! I don't get it either. Everyone is LOVING her collections. How is it a failure?

fnchrstphr said...

Blame millenials. They're not buying fashion associated with celebrities.

Do Tell said...

Victoria could help herself by following in the steps of Mossimo and Vera Wang by creating lines for Target or something similar, but I don't see her doing that.

News said...

10 million losses

News said...

Because losses accumulated for years are still losses even for the very rich

Green Tea said...

So, the part about the 30 million coming from investors, instead, is also not true? Can't that be verified easily enough?

Guesser said...

Victoria had a limited line for Target. She should get back to them before going broke. And I said this before ,if Iman can do HSN,so can she. Better designers than her have gone under.

Guesser said...

And most designers got rich by licensing merchandise like sunglasses,perfume,underwear,jeans. See Calvin Klein.

Caitlin Patla said...

at first i was thinking this was jlo & a-rod before rereading it. i wish she would just go away as well.

mercyprosperity said...

@eileen
Baloney. They are worth around 450 million as a couple, not individually.
Most of it's not liquid. Real estate and other holdings.

Aquagirl said...

Her clothes are designed for a very specific body type (hers), and are way overpriced for what they are. They are basically just higher-end versions of classics (not like someone such as L’Wren Scott whose line was losing money because of her amazing attention to detail.)

Idk if anyone saw what Meghan Markle was wearing on Christmas. Her whole outfit, besides the hat, was VB. It was a simple knit dress, a coat, boots that didn’t fit, and a purse. The cost was about $8000 (the purse alone was $1200). Totally not worth it for something so basic.

D Brown said...

Supposedly both Beckhams are financially strapped. The problem is not simply her business losing money, although that is significant, - but that both of them lived extremely extravagantly (i.e. large staffs, private jets etc.) It was all affordable when David was at his peak earnings but those days are past. Apparently they spent most of his peak earnings rather than investing it for the future (i.e. now).

kiki71 said...

@ Hunter, I suspect at this point it is a business arrangement and brand and no longer even a shred of a marriage in which case he does NOT want to dump more hard earned cash into it or be associated (either one of them) with a losing venture or facet of the brand. I think he may even have pitched to her to separate years ago and she nixed it. I don't think he is the 'cheating' husband only - but maybe someone who took too much advantage of his freedoms. She sounds like a demanding controlling nightmare (I am sure he can be too) but the blinds about her weight obsession even possibly affecting their daughter make me suspect.

plot said...

Yep, most of VB's designs are made for slouchy women, hips twisted forward, with possible EDs. All those oversized sweaters and bag dresses that VB wears regularly aren't flexible designs (as seen in that atrocious outfit she wore to the Harry and Meghan wedding.) VB has tried to force her body hiding aesthetic on the public for a long time. Notice how little her designs are copied by H&M or Top Shop? Yeah, VB simply does not trend.

Unknown said...

She did actually, blink and you missed it. Her stuff got % off really quickly and poof disappeared
