PLATEL’S PEOPLE: Why the ball burst for Brand Beckham

Ahead of Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s three-day, £3.5million wedding in April, eyebrows were raised when the bride apparently refused one of her future mother-in-law’s creations for the big day.

A lot of people, myself included, thought it looked like a cruel snub to Victoria Beckham. But now Nicola says in a magazine interview that she asked Victoria to do her dress, and it was Vic who let her down.

“I had intended to wear Victoria’s wedding dress and I’m so excited to be able to wear a design created by my future mother-in-law,” she said.

Ahead of Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s three-day £3.5million wedding in April, eyebrows were raised when the bride apparently refused one of her future step-in-law’s creations. mother for the big day.

Then days passed, she added, and she heard nothing — until a call came in saying Vic’s studio couldn’t handle it. Although she made VB dresses for herself, her best friends Eva Longoria, Nadia Ferreira, Zanna Roberts Rassi and her mother.

The situation left Nicola in tears. Brooklyn said his wife was his “number one priority” and that they would “support each other 100%.”

Which may sound trite, but it goes to the heart of what appears to be an ugly rift between the Beckhams and billionaire Peltz, who reportedly view their in-laws as social media and social climbing celebrities.

Victoria is said to be in turmoil during the interview, but aren't the Peltzes really right?

Victoria is said to be in turmoil during the interview, but aren’t the Peltzes really right? Yes, David Beckham was praised after queuing to see the queen lying in state. However, for some, his image was not enhanced by his involvement in the Qatar World Cup.

After accepting a £10m deal to be a Games Ambassador in a country with an appalling human rights record, particularly against women and the LGBT community, we now learn that Beckham is set to play in TV and print advertisements for Doritos World Cup sponsors.

There are also concerns around fashion empire VB, which has called for furlough for workers during Covid.

A former football hero who sold his soul to Qatar, a bankrupt fashion company – in August it was £54million in debt – and now a spat with American in-laws.

Which leaves you wondering if the ball finally popped for Brand Beckham?

US Weekly reports that his “chemistry” with Joelle Rich “is off the charts”.

Indeed, just as he was when he met Heard on the set of The Rum Diary.

And Kate Moss before he dumped her – then Vanessa Paradis – all were heartbroken.

By George, he’s a thrifty guy

Sad news that my exemplary neighbor Boy George is selling his stunning £17million Gothic mansion overlooking Hampstead Heath after 40 years.

Unlike that fellow pop star and former local resident George Michael, he never got into trouble, never crashed his car into walls.

And, according to local minicab drivers, he was so frugal he took a taxi – well, he was a pop star – to nearby Camden Market for his weekly groceries as the fruit and veg were there. cheaper.

Cha-cha-cheer Ellie!

Strictly is back with its usual big ladies formula.

Loose Women’s Kaye Adams, 59, the oldest woman; Fleur East, the sexy young reality TV star; Countryfile’s Helen Skelton, the sad one, dumped by her husband; comedian Jayde Adams, the leading lady; and Paralympic champion swimmer Ellie Simmonds, at 4 feet, the shortest person to ever appear.

Millions will be cheering for Ellie Simmonds, just like we have every time she stepped into the Paralympic pool

Even Ellie admits she has no idea how to dance with her partner: “How am I going to hold it, how are we going to get out of it?” It is the unknown.

What we do know is that millions of people will be cheering you on Ellie, just like we did every time you stepped into the Paralympic pool.

Westminster Wars

  • Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng’s pledge to spur growth with the biggest tax cuts since the 1980s has been music to the ears of millions of hard-working families. They have been hammered by the biggest tax increases in more than 50 years under the so-called Conservative government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Long may Liz reign over us – and may it rain on Boris’ parade of high taxes.

  • Culture Secretary Michelle Donelan hints at a U-turn on Channel 4’s £1billion sale. Surely she’s not a fan of the station that brought us Naked Attraction, Boobs, First Dates and Married At First Sight UK?

  • The latest news for those like me who fear dementia (my mother had Alzheimer’s disease) is that bad dreams in middle age are a warning sign. So are my occasional nightmares of being chased naked by my ex across a rickety wooden bridge over a deep ravine with hellfire licking my feet a sign of cognitive decline – or just the vindaloo What did I eat that night?
  • The Princess of Wales said five rainbows over Balmoral after Her Majesty’s death told her “she looked down on us”. No rainbows in blue Australian skies the morning of my parents’ double funeral – just two laughing kookaburras outside my bedroom at 2am. Their way of saying they would always despise me.

  • Surely it’s time to cut This Morning’s Holly Willoughby some slack on Queuegate. As a reporter, she had priority access to attend the Queen’s bowing. I probably would have done the same. The happily married mother of three works full time, rarely mean and endlessly cheerful most mornings in an otherwise dark world. I hate to see how social media attacks him, while leaving his less than holy co-anchor Phillip Schofield relatively unscathed. The last thing the Queen would have wanted was Holly’s retribution just for trying to honor her Maj’s memory.

Pitt’s marriage was art evil

Brad Pitt’s first sculpture exhibition is described by one reviewer as having “a Sunday carpenter’s charm, knocked up in the shed”.

The actor said of his work: “It was born out of having a radical inventory of self”, about “self-reflection, about where it went wrong in my relationships, where I was an accomplice”.

Oh my, his main sculpture is a messy gunfight mural depicting violence and pain – much like his marriage to Angelina Jolie.

Good news for disgraced Prince Andrew and his clinging ex Fergie, who will keep their 31-bed, £30million Windsor mansion ‘for now’.

But what I don’t understand is why she was at the Queen’s funeral when Anne’s ex-captain Mark Phillips wasn’t there.

Yes, she is the mother of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie – but the captain is the father of the Princess Royal’s Peter and Zara.
