David & Victoria Beckham celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary with wine

It’s like pulling teeth, at this point, for David Beckham to post a loving photo of Victoria on his social media. So what was the special occasion for this holiday week? Victoria and David Beckham celebrated their 19th wedding anniversary on the Fourth of July. According to Victoria’s Snapchat, the Beckhams spent their actual anniversary at a “sports day” at Harper’s school, and David had to participate in some kind of “dads’ race” which involved beanbags. There were also photos exclusively at the Daily Mail of Victoria and David “packing on the PDA” – go here to see. Personally, I don’t think the PDA was being “packed on.” She is trying to be close to him and… he’s not all that into it.

After the school sports day, the Beckhams seemed to travel to Paris for the night. Perhaps that was their real anniversary celebration: one night away from the kids, a romantic dinner in Paris with a £1,544 bottle of wine – Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1990. Who took the photo though??

Anyway, this post was brought to you by Obviously We’re Not Splitting Up Before Victoria’s Vogue Cover Comes Out.

    Those Daily Mail pics were painful to look at..he truly seems completely uninterested. Reminded me of those pics of Jennie Garth and her husband when he was looking over it.

    • Tate says:

      Came here to say the same. He is not even pretending in those DM pics.

      • jan90067 says:

        That was my first thought, too. She is all over him, arms around him, touching him, and he can’t even be bothered to look at her, let alone put an arm around her. He is totally checked out. Perhaps I’m projecting, but man, she looks so sad in those DM pics. I feel for her. It’s obvious SHE cares; he doesn’t give a fig at this point.

    • Swack says:

      Was going to say the same thing. He is not interested at all. She’s doing all the loving on him and it is not reciprocated.

    • Amy Too says:

      What’s with her hand and fingers in those pictures? It looks like she was holding a cigarette that they photoshopped out of the pictures. That, or she just holds her hands and fingers in a very stiff and awkward way all the time, sometimes in front of her face. I can’t imagine that she would be smoking a cigarette at a family sports day, so I’m really confused by her hands.

    • Babs says:

      Yes, these pictures are embarrassing. What’s even the point of this?

      • Ankhel says:

        I think that part of it, at least, is giving people (and the paps) a good view of her engagement ring. “Look, we’re still on.”

  2. minx says:

    He doesn’t move a muscle in those DM photos to acknowledge her existence.

    • PauKay says:

      Have you seen the clip from which the stills came from? Even worse.

    • Ankhel says:

      He hunches in on himself, and turns his face away from her, in the video bit where she embraces him and tries to kiss him. Painful to watch.

    • K-Peace says:

      Yeah, those pictures are painful to look at. She’s all over him and he doesn’t even acknowledge her.–OUCH!

      In some of the photos, his arms are so completely covered by dark tattoos that, from afar, they look blackened like gangrened arms or the arms of a corpse. (just something I happened to notice.)

      • Esmom says:

        I hear you on the tattoos. They’re over the top and look gross and kinda dumb to me.

      • CurlyWurly says:

        Did you notice Victoria blurred out his tattoos in the pic of David and Harper on her instagram the other day? It’s totally obvious, the blurring is on his tats only. She hates all his tattoos, she always wanted him to stop and he just got more and more.

    • The Hench says:

      @Ankhel, God yes. So sad to see. And talk about a picture saying a thousand words. His shoulders are hunched and arms folded whenever she is touching him or even just facing him. Only when she moves away does he loosen up.

      He can post as much nicey nicey stuff on his IG as he likes. These photos are screaming otherwise. My heart really goes out to her. I know what it feels like to reach towards someone who is supposed to care for you and have them behave like this. I don’t think any amount of money or fame can insulate you from that kind of rejection.

      • Mo’ Comments Mo’ Problems says:

        I thought the blurring effect was part of the latest iphone’s Portrait mode. 😂

  3. B says:

    I wonder how long they’ll keep up this charade.

  4. Lightpurple says:

    The glassware on the table is confusing. Are they sharing that one glass? Are they drinking out of different bottles? Do they each get a bottle? Who belongs to that third wine glass?

    • CurlyWurly says:

      They seem to be drinking 2 different bottles – he is drinking white and she is drinking red. The waiter probably brought 2 glasses with each bottle, in case they wanted to try both? The other glasses are water glasses.

  5. Slacker says:

    He’s an a##hole. He could at least try not to humiliate her publicly.

  6. Becks says:

    Those pictures make me feel bad for her. She’s trying soooo hard but it’s clear that he’s completely checked out.

  7. Ankhel says:

    Nothing like a wife grabbing her husband’s hand for a romantic picture, just as he tries to pick up his wine glass. Ouch. Wouldn’t life be better with some one who cares?

  8. Lara says:

    He never seems to acknowledge her as her – it’s always the most amazing wife/ or mummy. He never says I love you

    • jan90067 says:

      Exactly. She says, “I love you”, he says: “Love you”. IMO, it is *very* different. One invested, personal, one just tossing it out there/impersonal, could be said to a friend.

      • minx says:

        And notice how the “love you” is tucked away at the very end of the message, after he talked about his wedding wardrobe and used the generic “Happy Anniversary” wish, which is something you could say to a stranger. Cold.

  9. CurlyWurly says:

    Like he is ACTIVELY looking disinterested, he actively does not return any affection, in any way. He isn’t even holding her hand back in this photo! And the ones in the DM are even worse, where she is hugging him, more than once, and he just sits there with his arms at his sides. It would cost him nothing to hug her back, but he actually just refuses to even touch her. It makes me think he is probably involved romantically, quite seriously, with another woman – who would not like to see photos of him being affectionate with his wife. That is the only reason I could see for him refusing to even pretend he likes Vicky. I think he is sending the message to someone that this is business only.

    • Ankhel says:

      Possibly, yes. I also think he doesn’t want to be the bad guy who initiates a divorce, so he’s trying to drive her away with the cold shoulder treatment. Then she would be the one to face their kids and the press. It’s deeply cowardly.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      “It makes me think he is probably involved romantically, quite seriously, with another woman – who would not like to see photos of him being affectionate with his wife” I agree with this but it is kind of the state of play when you fu*k someone else’s husband though. Victoria deserves so much better than public humiliation by him.

      • CurlyWurly says:

        I know, but if his line to the other woman is “our relationship is business only, and you are the only one I love” etc, he would need to be seen NOT giving affection to his wife. Honestly, that’s the only reason I can think of for his blatant coldness. It’s not that hard to fake affection, he could do it if he wanted to – and they are WELL aware of the rumours.

    • Loopy says:

      Very true my ex boyfriend started acting the same, not touching me or acting distant and cold to make me hate him and leave him, my pic was suddenly not on his DP anymore,probably because he didn’t want to upset his new interest, and a whole bunch of other stuff which I won’t bore you with. He had checked out but did not want to pull the plug ,made me hate him until I had enough and ended it and he pretty much said ‘Ok I understand if that’s how you feel.’

    • minx says:

      You could be right about another serious relationship. He couldn’t be colder to VB, he wants out. I think Kaiser’s right, they’re waiting for the Vogue cover.

    • katpam says:

      Well said – I was actually thinking the same thing. He is making a very clear point here.

    • Tania says:

      I had the exact same thought. He wanted to show his sidepiece that he would rather be with her and he didn’t touch his WIFE, the pics prove she’s the only one for him (however many the only ones he has on the side). I would be pissed. He’s paying a dangerous game if he wants to come out of this his brand unscathed. There are many handsome English players. None of them got catapulted to fame and fortune like he did precisely because of HER and her reputation. He might be rolling in the dough now, but it never would have been the huge amount if she wasn’t a Spice Girl.

      • Babs says:

        Funny, because to me it’s the opposite. She was legitimated by him and then their brand evolved as a couple. Beckham was uber famous in his own right and she was just a part of a really famous band, who would have disappear like the others without her marriage. I don’t even know her last name. The brand is all Beckham. But maybe I’m wrong.

      • Aubrey says:

        @babs her last name is Adams

      • Jegede says:

        You’re absolutely correct,

        Beckham was playing for the biggest football club in the world and was already in the watch list pre – Posh due to his free kicks.

        He would likely have been famous no matter what. She was the Spice Girl who did minimal singing and who pointed all the time. For the last good 15 years Victoria’s fame was in being David’s wife.

    • Aurelia says:

      He won’t be seen touching her in public has it would offend his side pieces. He has told them his marraige is over.

  10. Happy21 says:

    I feel so sad for her :(
    He comes across as a complete D**k in all of those photos.

  11. Jasmine18 says:

    For gawd’s sake, develop some self respect woman! I don’t feel remotely sorry for VB.

    The idea that she represents an independent woman making a career for herself is laughable. He’s financially propping up her fashion label.

    Do you think David will be emoting more convincingly for the Vogue shoot?!

  12. Sage says:

    David should file for divorce if he’s so unhappy. He is wasting her time.
    Victoria should let him go rather than stage pap shots with an unwilling partner. It makes her look pathetic.

    • minx says:

      I think he wants out and wanted her to file first. It might be to the point where he’ll just do it himself.
      I know people say they have a brand and will stick together for that, but now their brand reads We Can’t Stand Each Other.

      • The Hench says:

        Alternative theory (because I was wondering why she was putting herself through this just for a mag cover, even if a Vogue one) – what if she got tired of his tomcatting and strayed herself? He seems seriously annoyed/irritated by her and she seems desperate to please. If the stories about her fury with him when the Rebecca Loos thing came out are true, Victoria isn’t usually a shrinking violet or afraid to tear a piece out of him when he’s been caught out.

        The stories are that he’s cheated many times before and both of them have been able to play the game for the sake of the brand then. If he has met someone and wants to leave her this time, then why does HE seem so bloody angry with her? If the deal is he’s going but they have agreed to delay the announcement for whatever reason, then you would think he could play his part more convincingly…oh, wait, just remembered that King Arthur flick….

      • minx says:

        Sadly, I think she loves the guy and hopes that he’ll come to his senses and be a great husband. She has kids with him and would like her family intact. Personally I think that ship sailed a long time ago.

      • The Hench says:

        @Minx – yes, probably right although, even if he stays, it doesn’t seem like he’s ever been that great a husband and being a doormat is a bad example to set for your kids. I can’t imagine that the kids aren’t aware of a poisonous atmosphere if this is how he behaves in public and in front of cameras. Just sad all round.

        I guess we will find out eventually. The whispers are definitely getting louder.

      • minx says:

        The Hench—yeah, kids don’t need it spelled out for them. I have the feeling he’s never been that discreet, either.

      • CurlyWurly says:

        I’m pretty sure Harper 7 was a bandaid baby. He obviously adores his children and I think Vicky leverages them for his affection.

      • Mo’ Comments Mo’ Problems says:

        @The Hench: that seems plausible! But also he seemed very distant for a long time. What a jerk.

      • Aurelia says:

        He’s staying in their open marriage for now. I say open as he roots around, she probably doesn’t. He has told her he’s leaving may times no doubt. It won’t be about the money as he’s made a kings ransom over the years. It will be that Victoria kows where all the bodies are buried. He couldn’t stand his kids knowing what a sex addict he is. Brooklyn probably already guessed as much and by the looks of it he can’t stay faithful for 5 minutes either. Too many IG flibbigibberts out there.

    • Mara says:

      There are stories that he wants a knighthood desperately. And a tabloid divorce might lower his estimation in the eyes of the Honours committee.
      Even if it wasn’t scandalous and they went the conscious uncoupling route, it would still be huge fodder for the tabloids for months.

  13. Deanne says:

    Those photos make her look completely desperate. His body language speaks volumes. I get it that she sees them as a brand, but I can’t imagine trying to fake it with someone who is so clearly uninterested. It’s really quite pathetic to see her attempt to keep up the pretence that they are madly in love. The video clip was actually cringeworthy.

  14. beer bong girl says:

    this photo feels like pure shade. she is touching his wrist and he is holding his glas of wine. it‘s the grown up version of a girl trying to hug her boyfriend while he is clutching to his beer bong. whatever happened to those two … i hope they can work it out.

  15. Mo’ Comments Mo’ Problems says:

    At this point it seems like they’re all just doing it for the gram. The anniversary dinner in Paris, etc… and usually the kids will post something like on father’s day or Mother’s Day; but the kids didn’t post anything at all. I’m suspecting that they know what’s going on (except Harper), and that it might be weighing on them. Could this be affecting Brooklyn and driving him to certain habits? Looking for an escape, etc etc? Definitely team Victoria on this. David’s appearing like a complete jerk and the world needs to actually realize this. Posh is really trying and he’s not even trying at all. I also don’t think Posh could handle if David went public with another woman after they divorced. Kind of like brad leaving Jen for Angie, big seismic thing. For what it’s worth, it looks like both David’s mom and his youngest sister seem to be in favor of the family being together. I also like the fact that David has a terrible digital / social / publicity / management team because they aren’t even making any effort as well lol (barring his businesses-they do great).

    Thanks for covering this, Kaiser!

  16. saltandpepper says:

    He’s over it. She should move on already, it’s like she’s been pretending her whole life, and realizing that it’s not working anymore must be gutting. Their relationship is a sham, their happiness a lie, the damage they’re doing to themselves and their children… And this humiliation should be the last straw for her in her pretend universe. Have some dignity, woman.

  17. HannahF says:

    Maybe the difference now is that there is a baby involved. There’s a rumor floating around that one of Harper’s teachers is pregnant with David’s love child.

    • Ange says:

      For the life of me I’ll never understand why famous men who have a bunch of kids and a wandering eye don’t get a vasectomy. It’s plain idiotic.

  18. SJhere says:

    Oh, I really hope that teacher/David’s baby is just a rumor. Man, if it’s true that is really ugly for Victoria.
    WTF is with these rich married men and their nannies, maids, etc.?

    I do not give a flip about the Beckhams or their brand. If he or she wants a divorce then call the lawyers, hammer out the paperwork and try to have some class and dignity during it all. Weeping Christ, they have sh*t ton of money. Why stay “together” for the brand?

  19. Aubrey says:

    They’re staying together. Thanks for covering this!

  20. Clairej says:

    Just wanted to say that Posh looks nice at the Sports Day. Casual Posh looked great.
