The Beckhams are coming! The Beckhams are coming! Rumors broke in the British press yesterday that Victoria, David and gang are eyeing a move to the Big Apple—because, sources say, they're tired of LA and Victoria's burgeoning fashion empire requires her to be on the East Coast.
"Her friendship group in LA has disbanded and David was traveling a lot more than she’d anticipated and so was she. It just seemed to make sense for her to be based in fashion capital New York. It’s closer to London and Europe for her business meetings," says one source. "David’s used to flying a lot but this will be the first time he’s been permanently based so far from his team. If he has a few games in a row, he’ll stay in Los Angeles.
"This isn’t a decision they’ve come to lightly. They still like LA and have no plans to sell their home there but being based in Hollywood doesn’t appeal to them anymore and they feel it’s time for a change."
Where will they live? Where will they eat? What schools will their children attend? Where will they shop? Let the speculation begin.
