Victoria Beckham reportedly didn’t know who her husband David Beckham was when they met. They have since gone on to build a huge empire and fortune thanks to some massive deals
The ex-Spice Girl and England legend have four children and a massive net worth to their name, thanks to their respective careers in singing and football, but they also turned their hand to fashion, where both have contributed to their bulging fortune.
Fashion guru Victoria, who is richer than Prince Charles, recently shared her feelings about the desire people have to be very thin as “old-fashioned”.
The 48-year-old designer told Grazia: “It’s an old-fashioned attitude, wanting to be really thin. I think women today want to look healthy, and curvy.”
Victoria’s fashion career has been hugely successful, with her self-named high-end label launching in 2008 followed by her cosmetics range, Victoria Beckham Beauty, in 2019.
It’s no wonder Posh and Becks, who married in 1999, have such a vast fortune to their name
So what is their combined net worth?
What is David and Victoria Beckham’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, David and Victoria Beckham’s combined fortune is around £360 million.
Much of Victoria’s wealth is thanks to her Spice Girls career, where she is reported to have brought home £60 million a year. For the reunion tour, she is believed to have earned herself a share of a cool £56 million, according to SCMP.
She managed to earn her place in the band after answering an advert in British magazine The Stage in 1994, which said it was looking for women who were “street smart, extrovert, ambitious and able to sing and dance”.
Posh Spice has launched a range of perfumes and sunglasses across the globe, designed her own denim brand dVb Style, and featured on the cover of British Vogue in 2008.
Victoria told CNBC: “There were two of us when I first started and it was just dresses, whereas now, we’ve grown. It’s not just dresses, it’s tailoring, it’s knitwear, it’s a complete wardrobe, plus accessories as well.
“So I’ve learnt a lot from my team and I’ve learnt a lot about the business. I’ve had to, I hadn’t done this before, so I’ve surrounded myself with the right people and the team has grown each season.”
Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain; David Beckham played for some of the world’s most iconic clubs, but may be best known for his exploits on the pitch for England.
Beckham’s right foot made him a known artist in the tricky discipline of the free kick.
The set-piece specialist scored a number of iconic goals from dead-ball situations, including a stunner against Greece in the last minute of the qualifiers of the 2002 World Cup.
The film Bend it Like Beckham was even named after his famous technique.
His high profile earned him major sponsorship deals with the likes of Adidas, H&M, Breitling, Sainsbury’s, Armani, Gillette, AIA Group, and PepsiCo.
Retiring from football in 2013 in a teary goodbye in Paris, his interests off the pitch continued and the England hero now owns MLS side Inter Miami.
He is also known for his fashion exploits like his wife Victoria, selling his own brand of aftershave.
More recently, a controversial deal emerged in which Becks agreed to become an ambassador for the Qatar World Cup for £150 million a year.
Qatar has faced a mountain of criticism for its human rights breaches and attitudes towards homosexuality.
