Tensions are running high with Victoria and David Beckham rumoured to be on shaky ground
TENSIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH WITH THE PAIR RUMOURED TO BE ON SHAKY GROUND
Just when we thought the Beckhams were back on track, fresh whispers claim the power couple are going through another marital blip – and David’s preparing for the worst. While strolling around the grounds of Château Cos d’estournel, a winery in the Bordeaux region of France, it didn’t go unnoticed that Victoria, 44, and David, 43, seemed to be avoiding each other.
Lucky for the former Spice Girl, her BFF Eva Longoria tagged along, as did Becks’ bestie Gordon Ramsay. ‘It looked frosty between them,’ an insider tells OK!. ‘They were in the most beautiful place and they looked miserable.’
Now, as David prepares to move to the US as president of the new Inter Miami CF football team, and also run his new business venture – as the owner of a London pub – insiders wonder whether they’re calculated moves. ‘David seems to be going it alone a lot these days. It’s one thing to want his independence, but it’s like they’re living separate lives,’ the insider adds.
Adding further pressure, tensions ran high when David came under fire recently for allegedly dodging a speeding fine. ‘That must have put a strain on David – not because of the fine itself, but because of the backlash he’s caused. He’s used to being extremely popular, but this caused some people to turn on him,’ OK!’ s insider explains. ‘It seems like all of that may have led to David deciding that he’s had enough of trying to please everyone else and is doing what he wants instead.’
The couple – who have four children Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and seven-year-old Harper – have had their ups and downs over the years. ‘One day they seem to show a united front and the next they’re doing their own thing,’ adds the insider. ‘But with the way that things are going, David could be preparing for a totally fresh start.’
David set offalone in front, with Posh sticking by bestie Eva’s side, as the group headed out for lunch at Château Lafite Rothschild
