David and Victoria Beckham's vast fortune 25 years after their wedding

When they married on July 4, 1999, David Beckham and Victoria Adams were already popular, he as a footballer and she as a Spice Girls singer, but 25 years later they are not only still famous, they are also one of the most powerful couples in the celebrity world.

They have a combined fortune of 455 million pounds (about 575 million dollars), according to The Times list of millionaires, and have managed to position themselves in the business world, he through sports investments and she focused on her fashion brand.

A solid relationship that overcame even an alleged affair by the ex-footballer with his personal assistant Rebecca Loos during his time at Real Madrid (2003-2004), a time of unhappiness for Victoria, as she recounted in a Netfix documentary released last year.

But the couple have never admitted to Beckham‘s slip-up or any others reported in the tabloids, nor have they addressed the latest rumours of a de facto separation, a theory put forward by journalist Tom Boyer in a recently published book, ‘The House of Beckham’.

It is based on the fact that David is spending more and more time in Miami, where the Inter Miami team, of which he is president, is based, while Victoria divides her time between London and New York, due to her commitments to her fashion and beauty brands.

Unaffected by the rumors, the couple celebrated Victoria‘s 50th birthday last April with a big party in London, which even included a reunion of the Spice Girls, who sang one of their best-known songs – ‘Stop’ – a moment that David immortalised in a video that he posted on his Instagram account and which received a lot of attention.

‘Best night ever’, said the former singer on her social media, where she regularly posts happy images with her husband and their four children – Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper Seven

David and Victoria’s spectacular wedding

It is a family that began with the birth of Brooklyn four months before his parents’ wedding.

They got married at Luttrellswtown Castle, near Dublin, in front of 300 guests, a celebration that cost almost 800,000 dollars just for renting the space.

It was the ‘wedding of the year’, according to the British press, which collected all the details of a party whose exclusive was sold to the magazine ‘OK!’ for 1.2 million dollars, a record at the time.

The couple left nothing to chance and even combined their outfits, champagne-colored – hers a Vera Wang design – and baroque aesthetics typical of the nineties.

“It seemed like a very good idea at the time,” said Victoria in an interview with Jimmy Fallon in 2021, in which she acknowledged that “it was naive” because they knew nothing about fashion and just wanted to have fun.

The ceremony itself was attended by only about thirty family members and friends, but the party afterwards was attended by many famous faces: Elton John, the rest of the Spice Girls – Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm – and the entire Manchester United team in which the footballer was playing at the time.

“My greatest achievements in life are my children, thank you @victoriabeckham for giving me these amazing people to love,” the former player recently said on his social media.
