Nicola Peltz has finally broken her silence on her rumoured ‘cold war’ with Victoria Beckham in a joint interview with husband Brooklyn for Variety.
The newlywed, 27, shared a cryptic message about ‘people who make you feel bad’ alongside a candid snap of herself looking sad with red watery eyes four days ago amid rumblings of a disagreement.
But despite not weighing in before, Nicola has dismissed the narrative and said that she believes it all started when she didn’t wear a Victoria Beckham designed wedding dress for the nuptials in April and instead opted for Valentino couture.

She told the publication: ‘I was going to and I really wanted to, and then a few months down the line, she realized that her atelier couldn’t do it, so then I had to pick another dress.
‘She didn’t say you can’t wear it; I didn’t say I didn’t want to wear it. That’s where it started.’
Brooklyn added: ‘Everyone gets along, which is good.’
Discussing their decision to combine their surnames, Brooklyn said: ‘We had this idea — we kind of combined our last names. I was just like, oh, we could start a new thing, and it’ll be so cool to have our own kids and have little Peltz Beckhams running around.’

The actress also told how coming from a large family has made her ‘really tough’ and that they’ve taught her not to allow people to ‘bring her down’.
Elsewhere in the interview, the couple spoke about their desire to start a family one day, with Brooklyn saying: ‘I keep saying to my wife, I can’t wait to be a dad.
‘I’m ready to have kids, but I always tell my wife, whenever you want.’
Nicola added: ‘We don’t plan on having kids anytime in the next year. But we would love to have a big family one day — we would love to have some of our own, and we would love to adopt.’
The ominous post comes amid months of alleged frosty tension with her new mother-in-law after reports claimed Nicola and Victoria, 48, ‘can’t stand each other and don’t talk.’
Peltz, the daughter of New York billionaire Nelson Peltz, is believed to now live in Miami with her husband but fans have noticed that the couple have seemingly drifted from Posh and Becks since the wedding.

The loved-up couple show their love and appreciation for each other nearly every day on social media – posting a series of sultry snaps, soppy captions and supportive comments for one another
Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz tied the knot in April 2022, and they both formally changed their names to Peltz-Beckham to signify their union. But fans were quick to notice that there was a scarcity of pictures posted of Nicola and Victoria. Neither Beckham women posted images together on their social media.

Opening up on social media, Mrs Peltz-Beckham said: ‘Sometimes I find it hard to show the sad bits of me.
‘Growing up with seven siblings and two very strong parents, made me really tough, they hammered it into me to not let people bring me down or hurt my heart.
‘It made me put such a wall up to protect myself especially in this industry. We all have days where people make you feel bad and it’s okay to be hurt by it.’
She continued: ‘I just thought I would write something because I never show this side of me here. I wanted to show this side of me.
‘I love you all so much and truly appreciate all of your support. It means so much when you guys are kind on my page I want you to know I see you, I hear you, and it means a lot to me.’
Her post was met with several supportive messages from her fans and showbiz pals, as well as a gushing response from her hubby: ‘You have the most amazing heart xx I love you so so much xx.’
But others were quick to pick up on the fact that the cryptic message may be an attack on her husband’s mother, Spice Girl Victoria, as their frosty online relationship continues to cause intrigue among their followers.
Peltz is said to have not wanted Posh’s input at the wedding at all – and on the magical night, witnesses said the Beckhams ‘were not at the forefront’ and that the ‘wedding was all about the Peltz family.’
Fans also questioned Victoria’s rather emotionless celebratory Instagram post following the wedding – as she just wrote: ‘Congratulations Mr and Mrs Beckham. Welcome to the family x.’

Many were quick to notice Victoria didn’t use Brooklyn and Nicola’s official new join surname – Peltz-Beckham – causing further speculation that the post was in fact veiling their growing tensions.
Other clues hinting towards the cold war between the Beckham women include when Nicola failed to post an image with Victoria at the glamorous reception – despite her caption being ‘family is everything to me.’
Since then, Nicola and Victoria have scarcely liked each other’s pictures on social media, despite the fact that they used to always show support for one another online.
Rumors were also intensified when fans noticed that Brooklyn was missing from his family vacation last week as Victoria and Beckham were seen vacationing on a yacht in Palm Beach, Florida.
It has been nearly three months since Posh last liked one of Nicola’s posts on May 26 – and she didn’t like any of the images that Peltz-Beckham shared from her honeymoon with Brooklyn.

Nicola meanwhile hasn’t liked Posh posts about her 29th Vogue magazine cover, her wedding anniversary with David, or even on Harper’s 11th birthday. She also didn’t like a post wishing David a happy Father’s Day – despite the fact that the post featured her husband Brooklyn.
And the rift between mother and daughter-in-law has also allegedly rocked Brooklyn’s relationship with his parents, with one source telling Page Six: ‘They haven’t spoken to him much in the last few months.’
The Beckhams were apparently not happy after Nicola’s glitzy front cover close-up on British socialite magazine Tatler came out – published with the in-your-face headline ‘The new Mrs Beckham.’
It is a title Victoria has, of course, worn with pride since she wed footballer Becks in July 1999.
Brooklyn posted the stunning front cover of his adoring wife, with the caption: ‘Wow. I am so proud of you baby. You look absolutely gorgeous and I am so in love with you. Congratulations babe.’
The Instagram post was not liked by his mother, Victoria.

Opening up in the Tatler interview, fans believed that Nicola exposed sly digs at how David and Victoria had previously treated her husband Brooklyn, 23.
She told the magazine: ‘Brooklyn felt a lot of pressure to please people with his career and he didn’t love it.’
And Nicola also said that Brooklyn often turns to her 80-year-old father, Nelson Peltz, for business advice – rather than to his singer, fashion designer, multi-million pound business owner mother, or his legendary former footballer father.
She said: ‘Brooklyn is getting into very exciting things with his shows and also business things and it’s really sweet. I watch him call my dad and say, “What do you think about this?” I love watching him learn from my dad.’
On Victoria’s Instagram page, her most recently-updated highlight reel is dedicated to her loving family, where she shares adorable snaps of her children, parents, and her husband.
But despite officially joining the family in April, Nicola hasn’t featured in the carousel of images since January.
The icy online relationship between Nicola and Victoria is in marked contrast to the once-loving Instagram connection that used to exist between them.

Drama? It comes after a social media feud has reportedly started between Nicola and Victoria
Back in 2021, Nicola gushed that Victoria was her ‘role model’ and said ‘I love you so so much’ in a series of pictures she posted for Posh’s birthday.
And Victoria’s Instagram used to feature loving posts about 27-year-old Nicola, including the adorable caption when Brooklyn got down on one knee: ‘The MOST exciting news!!
‘We could not be happier that Brooklyn and Nicola are getting married! Wishing you so much love and a lifetime of happiness. We all love you both so much.’
A different insider, though, said talk of a schism is ‘silly,’ and that David and Victoria are due to meet up with the newlyweds in America soon – pointing out that they all recently went out for dinner in Venice.
