Nicola Peltz recalls her disastrous first meeting with her husband Brooklyn Beckham

They’ve been married for five months but Nicola Peltz has recalled how her first meeting with her husband Brooklyn Beckham wasn’t love at first sight.

The actress first met Brooklyn six years ago through her brother, but in a candid new interview about their romance, she admits they ‘really didn’t get along.’

Speaking to Wonderland Magazine, Nicola remembers how they partied together at Coachella music festival but now looking back at photos they barely interacted.  

‘We didn’t click’: Nicola Peltz has recalled how her first meeting with her husband Brooklyn Beckham wasn’t love at first sight in a new interview with Wonderland Magazine 

‘I actually met Brooklyn like six years ago at Coachella, through one of my brothers; his name is Diesel,’ Nicola told actress Selma Blair during the Wonderland interview.

She recalled how the now-married couple were both with other partners at the time, admitting: ‘We really didn’t get along. He had a girlfriend and I had a boyfriend, and we just didn’t click at all.’

‘Diesel was like, “Oh my friend Brooklyn wants to crash at our house”, because all my brothers rented a house for Coachella. We barely interacted. We look back at pictures, like group pictures, and I’m with my boyfriend and Brooklyn’s in the corner.’

Fast forward a few years and the couple are now happily married after their lavish Palm Beach wedding back in April.

Nicola gushed about her big day during the interview, explaining how the wedding took place in the middle of her shoot for her new TV miniseries Welcome to Chippendales, in which she plays Playboy Playmate and actress Dorothy Stratten.

‘Yes, I was shooting and I stopped five days before my wedding, and then I shot the week after my wedding,’ Nicola explained of her hectic schedule.

She gushed that her mother Claudia saved the day as she took over the planning duties so Nicola could work right up until the last minute.

‘My wedding was like smack in the middle. It was kind of amazing, because my mom was such a big help in my wedding that I was able to be so involved in the show; I was sucked into this character and then five days before I was like, ‘I’m getting married!”‘

Nicola’s latest tales about her wedding focus on her own family, with no mention of Brooklyn’s parents amid reports of a huge rift between her and mother-in-law Victoria Beckham.

The cold war began when Nicola and Victoria clashed over her wedding dress and the Transformers star accused her new mother-in-law of stealing the limelight at her wedding. 

The Beckhams have refused to pay for Brooklyn’s US green card, a source claims, and, most recently, the one-time Spice Girl snubbed her son and daughter-in-law for her new Paris Fashion Week show, says another family insider.

Though the newlywed chef and Transformers actress are happy and fawning over each other, trouble has been brewing between their two houses.

A source who knows Nicola well says that the drama began around her and Brooklyn’s Palm Beach, Florida, wedding – and has only escalated.

As a celebrity designer, many in the fashion world assumed Victoria, 48, would be designing Nicola’s wedding dress. But instead, the bride appeared on the May cover of Vogue in Valentino couture.

Nicola later gave an interview insisting that ditching Victoria’s offer was not designed to be a slight against her new mother-in-law.

‘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 told Variety last month.

But one insider said Nicola, 27, ‘never’ intended to wear Victoria Beckham at her wedding.

‘She was always just going to let her design something. But she was never going put that on her,’ the source said. ‘She has too many actually talented designer friends.

‘It’s like when you have an in-law, and they say they make the best meatballs, you hate meatballs, but you let them cook it anyway. That’s exactly what happened.

‘She was never, ever going to wear it.’

Another source with knowledge of the dress controversy was led to believe Nicola really was considering wearing her mother-in-law’s design, but was left in the lurch at the ‘last minute.’

‘Valentino was concerned that they didn’t’ have enough time to do the dress because Victoria didn’t tell the Peltzes that her atelier couldn’t make the dress for Nicola until the last minute,’ the second source said.

After the dress drama unfolded, Nicola 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.

A source at the wedding told DailyMail.com: ‘Marc asked Nicola and Brooklyn to pick their favorite song to dedicate to them, and that one was their favorite.’

‘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.’
