'It really p***ed her off': Nicola Peltz 'STORMED OFF crying' during wedding over tribute to Victoria Beckham
Since Brooklyn and Nicola's April wedding, relations between the famous Beckhams and the wealthy Peltzes have grown rather chilly, according to family sources who spoke to Daily Mail. The cold war broke out when Nicola Peltz and Victoria Beckham argued over her wedding dress and the former accused her mother-in-law of stealing the show at her wedding.
According to sources, the Beckhams have declined to pay for Brooklyn's US green card, and most recently, the former Spice Girl ignored her son and daughter-in-law for her newest Paris Fashion Week show, claims a different family insider. Although the 'Transformers' actress and newlywed chef are content and gushing over one another, tensions between their two homes have been building.
Ever since Nicola and Brooklyn's marriage in Palm Beach, Florida, the drama has only gotten worse, according to a source. Many in the fashion industry assumed Victoria, 48, who is a well-known designer, would create Nicola's wedding gown. Instead, the bride wore Valentino couture and made an appearance on the May cover of Vogue. Later, Nicola insisted in an interview that she had not intended to belittle her future mother-in-law by rejecting Victoria's offer.
Nicola stated in an interview with Variety last month, "I was going to and I really wanted to, and then a few months down the line, she realized that her atelier couldn't do it, so then I had to pick another dress." According to Daily Mail, one insider claimed that Nicola, 27, "never" intended to wear a Posh-designed dress at her wedding.
The source claimed, "She was always just going to let her design something. But she was never going to put that on her. She has too many actually talented designer friends." Sources also said, "It's like when you have an in-law, and they say they make the best meatballs, you hate meatballs, but you let them cook it anyway. That's exactly what happened. She was never, ever going to wear it."
According to a different source who was informed about the dress controversy, Nicola had been considering wearing her mother-in-law's creation but ditched it at the "last minute." The second source claimed, "Valentino was concerned that they didn't have enough time to do the dress because Victoria didn't tell the Peltzes that her atelier couldn't make the dress for Nicola until the last minute." One insider said that following the dress controversy, Nicola was offended by Marc Anthony's gushing speech at her wedding, which was entirely about Victoria. The source claimed, "It was totally just an ode to Victoria and how awesome she is. Nicola loves to be the center of attention, especially on her wedding day. So this really, really p***ed her off."
"She stormed off in the middle of her wedding reception with sister Brittany and her mom, and was crying her eyes out," said the source. Nicola was upset during the reception, according to a second source, but not because Anthony was gushing about Victoria. The insider claimed that Posh Spice stole the newlyweds' First Dance song for her own mother-son dance before Brooklyn and Nicola were supposed to two-step in front of their guests.
The First Dance song was Anthony’s ‘You Sang To Me’. The romantic love song has the lyrics ‘Now I'm crazy for your love’, ‘When I called you late last night you see I was falling into love’ and ‘Girl, I live for how you make me feel’. A source at the wedding told Daily Mail, "Marc asked Nicola and Brooklyn to pick their favorite song to dedicate to them, and that one was their favorite."
Another source said, "Nicola left the room because she and Brooklyn thought Marc was introducing them to a special dance to a love song the couple had chosen. But without any warning and at the request of Victoria, Marc switched it to a mother-son dance using the same song. Most of the guests could tell something off had happened. It was uncomfortable for the couple who were thinking it was to be a special moment for them."
Nicola published an emotional post in which she discussed her upbringing in detail. However, a lot of people thought the cryptic message was just another jab in the ongoing alleged conflict between her and her mother-in-law. A family friend claims that Brooklyn and his new spouse feel neglected because they didn't learn Victoria was hosting a show at Paris Fashion Week until they read a magazine article.
The second source said, "Victoria didn't call Brooklyn and say, hey I'm having this show, we'd love to have you there. The first they found out about it was from Women's Wear Daily. Both have been [to every Paris Fashion Week] since they've been together. Victoria knows Nicola's gonna be there. She knows her son's gonna be there." All of Victoria's shows have always been a family affair. Brooklyn and Nicola simply didn't expect that, which caught them off guard. According to those close to Nicky, Victoria is afraid that Nicola and Brooklyn will dominate the spotlight and steal the show because she thinks they will dominate all of the attention.
The source close to the Peltz family, though, refuted assertions of a larger conflict. They said, "The wedding felt very normal. That's why this is a surprise. The wedding dress drama was never really a problem for either woman." Sources added, "It was kind of Nicola to bring it all to Victoria and say I want this to be a family affair. And then it was kind of Victoria to say, Listen, I want you to have the dress that you want. And it's not something I can make."
