Victoria Beckham hunted ‘missing’ David down at Glastonbury where he was partying with models

David Beckham’s Glastonbury jaunt didn’t exactly go to plan back in 2017, thanks to wife Victoria turning up on Worthy Farm.

The retired footballer, 49, and Posh Spice’s marriage is examined in Tom Bower’s upcoming book The House of Beckham, with a number of new details about their decades-long romance revealed.

While the couple opened up about being “against each other” in David’s Netflix series last year, the famous pair only touched on the battle to save their marriage in the early 00s when David was accused of having an affair with his former PA Rebecca Loos.

But in The House of Beckham, Bower claims the couple experienced further problems years later – with the parents-of-four even waging a war against each other in the media with rival PR managers.

Another low-point for the Beckhams mentioned in the book came about in 2017, when Victoria’s gate-crashed David’s fun at Glastonbury. David and a small group of pals, including his best friend Dave Gardner, had gone to the famous British festival without Victoria at first as she was arriving later from New York.

The night before Posh’s arrival the group – including married Lady Mary Charteris, as well as a “glamorous Australian bikini model” – had partied until 5am. The festivities resumed at lunchtime the next day “until interrupted by a telephone call” informing them that Victoria had arrived.

“There was no hassle and a great mood until she landed,’ complained one of the group,” Bower writes in The House of Beckham. “With her entourage she headed in a golf buggy through the scruffy campers to the VIP zone. She was furious that her husband had failed to reply to her telephone calls and had dispatched a search party. Eventually, David appeared. Within seconds, they were embroiled in a ferocious argument…. ‘They looked quite miserable,’ said one eyewitness, ‘but they managed to pose for the cameras’.”

Bower goes on write about David’s relationship with his long-time BFF Dave Gardner, someone Victoria apparently wasn’t too keen on being her husband’s drinking buddy.

He claims in the book: “Insiders knew about Victoria’s opinion of Dave Gardner and his racy lifestyle. ‘Dreggy,’ she called his party crowd. In 2003, she had been particularly unhappy about Beckham being best man at Gardner’s £2 million first wedding to the soap actress and socialite Davinia Taylor.

“His presence, she complained, increased the financial value of Gardner’s contract with OK! magazine. Two years after the wedding, Victoria was irritated by the publicity surrounding Gardner’s ‘crisis talks to save his marriage’. His wife had become notorious for lesbian affairs with her Primrose Hill neighbours and treatment for alcoholism and drug addiction at The Priory.

“Their separation and eventual divorce increased the time Gardner and Beckham spent together, especially after Beckham stopped playing professional football. Without the demands of a strict training routine, Gardner had helped fill the vacuum by introducing him to glittering parties.”

Dave and Davina divorced in 2010, with Dave citing Davinia’s ‘unreasonable behaviour’ as the grounds for the split. The sports and entertainment manager went on to date Lord of the Rings actress Liv Tyler, even becoming engaged to the Hollywood star at one point.
