Shirtless Brooklyn Beckham jumps off the side of billionaire James Packer’s $200M superyacht

Brooklyn Beckham and his wife Nicola Peltz enjoyed a day on Australian billionaire James Packer’s $200M superyacht in Antibes, France, on Thursday.

The son of David and Victoria, 23, went shirtless in blue swimming trunks as he daringly jumped off the side of the luxury vessel while actress Nicola, 27, remained firmly onboard. 

Packer’s ultra-luxe ‘gigayacht’ spans a whopping 108 metres and provided the perfect playground for their summer holiday in Europe which has also seen them visit Portofino and St Tropez.

Chilling: He relaxed on board the luxury vessel

Brooklyn looked like he was having a great time as he practiced his diving off the side alongside Nicola’s brother Will and some of their other pals. 

Later in the afternoon Nicola was seen greeting James with a kiss on the cheek as they all enjoyed their time together. 

She looked effortlessly chic in a black sundress which was teamed with a black and white cropped cardigan while she boosted her height with gold wedges.

The pair have been joined by some of Nicola’s siblings for part of their European honeymoon which has also seen them travel to Portofino and St Tropez.

It comes as Nicola had admitted it wasn’t love at first sight with her husband – confessing the pair ‘didn’t get along’ and ‘didn’t click’. 

The couple were introduced five years ago, at which time they both had different partners and weren’t interested in getting to know one another.

Yet although they stayed in loose contact it wasn’t until a chance run-in in at Leonardo DiCaprio’s Halloween party in 2019 that the pair decided to give their romance a go. 

Nicola told Tatler magazine: ‘We didn’t get along, we just didn’t click… I had a boyfriend, he had a girlfriend.

‘We actually met up one time and went to dinner, and he was a friend but not a close friend. Then we ran into each other at a Halloween party two and a half years ago and I can’t tell you what happened but from then on we were inseparable.’
