‘I didn’t hear anything for days’: Nicola Peltz claims she was blanked by Victoria Beckham during the design process for her wedding dress – as Brooklyn dubs his wife ‘number one priority’ amid growing family rift

  • The pair reportedly became embroiled in a family rift after the heiress, 27, sported a Valentino wedding dress to tie the knot with Brooklyn, 23, in April
  • The newlywed explained she was ‘excited’ to wear a dress by Victoria, 48, but didn’t hear from the designer for days 

Nicola Peltz has weighed in on the ongoing rumours of a feud with mother-in-law Victoria Beckham, revealing that she didn’t hear from the fashion designer for days during the design of her wedding dress.

The pair reportedly became embroiled in a family rift after the heiress, 27, sported a couture Valentino wedding dress to tie the knot to Victoria’s eldest son Brooklyn, 23, in April – rather than a design by his mother.

But speaking out on the reports, the newlywed explained she was ‘excited’ to wear a dress by Victoria, 48, but didn’t hear from the designer for days, before being told she couldn’t make the gown.

Backing his wife of five months, Brooklyn dubbed Nicola his ‘number one priority’ amid the rumoured family drama.

Fronting the new cover of Grazia USA, Nicola attempted to set the record straight as she explained: ‘Well, I was planning on wearing Victoria’s wedding dress and I was truly so excited to be able to wear a design that my future mother-in-law created. 

‘I thought that was so beautiful and such a beautiful story,’ recalled the actress.

Nicola’s close friend, stylist Leslie Fremar, and mother, Claudia were also helping to design the dress, with the star explaining the dream team of designers was going to be ‘so fun’.

But things appeared to hit a bump in the road as Nicola admits to ‘not hearing anything’ from Victoria for days during the design process.

Sharing: ‘We connected to start designing the dress, and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything. Victoria called my mom and said her atelier couldn’t make it.

Prioritising: And backing his wife, Brooklyn chimed in and explained that they 'talk things through' when rumours circulate, adding: 'To be honest, my wife is obviously my first priority and I never want to see her upset ever'

‘So, I spoke to my mom and Leslie, and I was like, “Well, unfortunately, this can’t happen, so what’s the next step?” I’ve been a fan of Valentino and their couture for so long. I was really lucky to be able to travel to [the atelier] to try on the dress. That’s really what happened.’

Describing Victoria and David as ‘great in-laws’, Nicola admitted that it ‘hurts my feelings’ to see reports claiming she ‘never planned’ to wear a dress by her mother-in-law.

‘It does hurt my feelings. I try not to let it, but it’s just not the truth. It’s just a bit of a bummer when you’re like, “Oh, people think that,” but it’s just not true.’

Nicola and Brooklyn said ‘I Do’ in a no-expense spared ceremony earlier this year, held at the heiress’ lavish family estate in Palm Beach.

Brooklyn is the eldest of Victoria and David’s brood, with the long-standing couple also sharing 20-year-old Romeo, Cruz, 17 and Harper Seven, 11.

The family of six are famously very close knit, with Victoria and her photographer-turned-chef son historically sharing a close relationship.

But with reports of a rift between Nicola and Victoria reportedly driving a wedge between the Beckham’s and their eldest son – the wedding dress fiasco appears to have only been the beginning. 

Nicola allegedly became offended when David and Victoria’s close friend ​​Marc Anthony gave a gushing speech at her wedding – all about Victoria, according to one insider.

‘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,’ the source said.

‘She stormed off in the middle of her wedding reception with [sister] Brittany and her mom, and was crying her eyes out.’

Another source agreed Nicola was upset during the reception – but said it wasn’t because Anthony was gushing about Victoria.

This insider claimed that Posh Spice stole the newlyweds’ First Dance song for her own mother-son dance moments before Brooklyn and Nicola were meant to two-step in front of their guests.

The First Dance song was Anthony’s ‘You Sang To Me’. The romantic love song includes 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 DailyMail.com: ‘Marc asked Nicola and Brooklyn to pick their favourite song to dedicate to them, and that one was their favourite.

‘Nicola left the room because she and Brooklyn thought Marc was introducing them for a special dance to a love song the couple had chosen,’ the second source said.

‘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.’  

And friends say Victoria is deeply saddened that Brooklyn did not join the Beckham family holiday this summer, which saw them travel across Europe on a lavish yacht.

Before the holiday began in July, sources close to Brooklyn confirmed that the newlyweds would not be joining, confessing that ‘they would be remaining in Los Angeles’ once their honeymoon came to an end.

Instead, youngest son Cruz, 17, took his girlfriend Tana Holding for the duration of the trip, while Romeo joined them in Miami when his footballing commitments allowed him to.
