The fashion designer, 48, is hosting her first ever Fashion Week show in the French capital and is keen to have Brooklyn, 23, and Nicola, 27, by her side.

After their wedding, Brooklyn and Nicola holidayed with her billionaire family but have spent hardly anytime with the Beckhams since their big day.

David, 47, has told his eldest son it is ‘up to them’ how they deal with the family drama and are said to no longer want to be apart of it.

Brooklyn and Nicola have spent this week in Paris attending fashion shows across the city during the French capital’s bi-annual Fashion Week.

Their attendance comes day before Victoria, who will also be heading to Paris, hosts her own Fashion Week show for the first time.

If the couple attend the show it will be a sign of family unity, after Victoria offered the olive branch by inviting them to watch.

The Beckham clan feel like Nicola is ‘washing the family dirty linen in public’ and want out of the drama, claims MailPlus writer Alison Boshoff.

It comes after David had a rare confrontation with his son Brooklyn and ‘read him the riot act’ over the ongoing situation surrounding him and his wife.

David told Brooklyn we don’t do this in our family’ after Nicola spoke about tensions over her wedding dress in an interview with Grazia USA, where she accused her mother-in-law and potential designer Victoria of ‘blanking’ her.

Victoria offered to create a wedding dress for Nicola and Brooklyn’s big day, however the bride ultimately opted for a Versace gown and cited a lack of communication from Victoria as the reason behind her decision.

A source said: ‘I don’t think David has ever lost his temper with Brooklyn or had cause to talk to him harshly, but that has now finally happened.

‘He had it out with him and told him: ‘We don’t do this in our family – and you know that we don’t do this in our family.’

Victoria and David are said to be devastated by the absence of Brooklyn and his brothers have also been left feeling wounded by the drift.

Romeo recently appeared to side with his parents as he shared a picture with Brooklyn and their younger brother Cruz, 17, on the wedding day.

Alongside the image he wrote: ‘Nothing more important than family.’

The family divide comes as Nicola claimed she was ignored by Victoria when she reached out about designing her wedding gown. 

The move reportedly blew the bride’s plans out of the water when Victoria said her studio couldn’t make actually make the gown.

Insiders have said Nicola is pushing a ‘false narrative’, leaving Victoria ‘bemused’ as to why she keeps ‘stoking the rumours of a feud’ rather than shutting them down.

A source said: ‘Frankly, the most interesting thing about Nicola is that she married into the Beckham clan. David and Victoria have both reached out to her to try and make peace, and find a way to get along.

‘David and Victoria would love to spend more time with their son and his wife, and be given the opportunity to welcome her into the fold, especially given that Brooklyn practically lives with his parents-in-law.’

In a bombshell interview with Grazia USA, she revealed: ‘We connected to start designing the dress, and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything. Victoria called my mom and said her atelier couldn’t make it.’

Doting husband Brooklyn made his position clear amid the family feud, telling the publication that Nicola is his ‘number one priority’ and that they ‘have each other’s back 100 per cent’.

Nicola, the daughter of New York billionaire Nelson Peltz, attempted to set the record straight as she explained: ‘I was planning on wearing Victoria’s wedding dress and I was truly so excited to be able to wear a design that my future mother-in-law created.’
