VICTORIA BECKHAM HAS ALL BUT QUASHED HER HUBBY DAVID’S DREAMS OF SETTING UP A FOOTBALL TEAM IN MIAMI – by refusing to make a permanent move to the city. The snub is bound to put more pressure on their already reportedly strained relationship, which has been rocked by rumours of problems for months as they continue to spend an increasing amount of time apart. A source revealed, “Victoria and David’s relationship has been hit by their conflicting work schedules. Buying a permanent home in Miami would only add to their problems.” While the couple were said to have viewed a £36m Versace beachside mansion and two others in the Florida city, it appears Vic, 41, has since had a change of heart about setting up home there. The source added,
“Victoria has seen her family uproot several times over the years. It’s been a fantastic experience for the kids but now she just wants to stay in London.” David, 40, will no doubt be gutted by his wife’s decision, as it’s clear he saw his future in Miami. He’s already had numerous problems trying to set up the Major League Soccer team – provisionally called Miami MLS – with business partners, including former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller.

But in September the footballer had a breakthrough when he finally found a base for a proposed home ground, after several planning issues. So Posh’s refusal to play ball will likely create more stress for the couple, especially as they’ve been separated by thousands of miles while David films his football doc For The Love Of The Game. Last week, he was in Argentina for the project, while Posh was in the States.
The pressure had clearly got to the mum of four when she appeared on Good Morning America last week. Discussing her 2015 Glamour Women Of The Year nomination, Posh looked noticeably exhausted, with bags under her eyes. During the chat, the busy designer didn’t talk about David, but did insist that she no longer felt guilty about spending time away from her brood, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, ten, and four-year-old Harper.
She said fashion legend Diane von Furstenberg had given her “the best piece of advice” she’s received about being a working mum. “I was having dinner with Diane von Furstenberg, a woman I have an enormous amount of respect for,” she said. “And I said to her, ‘Diane, when your children were younger and you were working, did you feel guilty?’ And she said, ‘Absolutely not. It’s a waste of time and energy.’”
