Victoria Gets Called Out in Netflix Documentary “Beckham”

In the Netflix documentary “Beckham” about David and Victoria Beckham, Victoria shared that when they first met at a soccer match in 1997, she was initially attracted to David because she found him attractive. She said: “I just fancied him, and it was as simple as that”. However, the issue was raised when Victoria continued with: “I think also we both come from families that work really hard. Both of our parents work very hard, we’re very working class.

How David Beckham Responded

Initially, fans were flabbergasted to hear Victoria Beckham say that her family was “working class”. However, before netizens could even react, David Beckham reacted for them.

After Victoria’s claim, David told her out loud: “Be honest!”

Afterward, Victoria replied with: “I am being honest.” However, David immediately interrupted her with: “What car did your dad drive you to school in?”

Victoria was seen struggling with her response and stumbling with her words. She first said: “It’s not a simple answer” to which David responded with the same question about her father. She then said, “It depends.” and David would not let her continue without answering the question.

Eventually, she answered David’s question by saying: “OK, in the ’80s, my dad had a Rolls-Royce.”

What Else Does the Netflix Documentary “Beckham” Discuss?

In the documentary, Victoria Beckham confessed to feeling “resentment” towards David Beckham after rumors of his affairs created a media frenzy in 2003. Two women claimed to have had intimate relationships with the then-Real Madrid player. Victoria described this period as the most unhappy in her life. During that year, the Beckhams lived apart, with Victoria and their children in the UK, while David was in Spain with his team after leaving Manchester United. Although neither Victoria nor David mentioned the women by name, they seemed to allude to the alleged affairs while headlines from that time were displayed on screen.

Victoria said: “It was the hardest period because it felt like the world was against us. Here’s the thing — we were against each other if I’m being completely honest. You know, up until Madrid, sometimes it felt like us against everybody else, but we were together, we were connected, we had each other”.
