Are The Beckhams Big Apple-bound?
The Rumor Mill is abuzzing with whispers that British Power Couple David and Victoria Beckham and their three young sons are eyeing a move to The Big Apple as Victoria plans the latest expansion of her budding fashion empire. The couple, who have homes in their native London and the South of France, are now set to splash out on a luxurious Manhattan home as fashion designer Victoria wants to be there for her work, tipsters have squealed to England’s Now! Magazine.
The Beckhams already have one very important tie to America’s most vibrant city; their oldest son, Brooklyn, was conceived there more than a decade ago.
“My work is so important to me and LA just isn’t a real fashion city,” Victoria reportedly told a friend.
“Her friendship group in LA has disbanded and David was traveling a lot more than she’d anticipated and so was she. It just seemed to make sense for her to be based in fashion capital New York. It’s closer to London and Europe for her business meetings,” reports a well-placed pal in-the-know.
David, who moved Stateside to play soccer for Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007, is still under contract with the team and will keep their Beverly Hills home, which he will use as base while playing, Now! claims.
“David’s used to flying a lot but this will be the first time he’s been permanently based so far from his team. If he has a few games in a row, he’ll stay in Los Angeles. This isn’t a decision they’ve come to lightly. They still like LA and have no plans to sell their home there but being based in Hollywood doesn’t appeal to them anymore and they feel it’s time for a change.”
