Feel­ing Sheep­ish, David?

Look (UK) - - COVER STORY -

While VB was pick­ing up her award, things must have been mega-awk­ward for hus­band David. Af­ter all, it’s been just three short months since ‘Beck­ileaks’ – the scan­dal that erupted when leaked emails be­tween the for­mer foot­baller and his man­ager came to light. Among other things, the emails re­vealed David’s dis­ap­point­ment at not hav­ing re­ceived a knight­hood, and that he’d called the Hon­ours Com­mit­tee – the very group who ap­proved his wife’s OBE – ‘c**ts’. And while Vic­to­ria was clearly happy about re­ceiv­ing her hon­our, our source tells us that the is­sue of the emails was dis­cussed. ‘Vic­to­ria def­i­nitely felt tense in the lead-up to the cer­e­mony,’ says our source. ‘She was wor­ried David couldn’t en­joy it as much.’ As for David, 41, he de­lib­er­ately stayed in the back­ground dur­ing the event it­self. ‘He knew the day was all about Vic­to­ria and didn’t want any­thing to jeop­ar­dise that,’ says our source.

David re­ceived an OBE in 2003
