Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to have ended their friendship with David and Victoria Beckham amid allegations of story leaks.
There appears to be a royal rift between these couples.
David and Victoria Beckham, longtime friends of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have allegedly been accused of leaking sources about the Suessexes.
Now, their friendship is over, according to an anonymous insider.
The source told The Mail on Sunday that David is “absolutely bloody furious” after accusations supposedly flew during a tense phone call between the couples.
“Any making up now is so unlikely,” the insider claimed.
The Beckhams were present at the royal pair’s wedding in 2018, and were “very supportive” of Meghan’s arrival in the UK, the source said.
In the wake of their fallout, Meghan has seemingly replaced one Victoria with another: Victoria Jackson, a cosmetics magnate and the couple’s neighbor in Montecito, California.
“Victoria [Jackson] is a dynamic force. She’s someone who built a business but has also overcome adversity in her private life,” a second source told the outlet. “She and Meghan bond on many levels. They are extremely close, they adore each other.”
Jackson, whose successful Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation fundraises for the autoimmune disease Neuromyelitis Optica, is allegedly “advising Meghan on many levels” with her own Archewell charity, per the source.
The former “Suits” actress is also rumored to be pals with hair stylist Amanda Leone as well as Hollywood mogul Ari Emanuel, the CEO of William Morris Endeavor, and his wife, fashion designer Sarah Staudinger.
“Ari and his wife are part of Meghan’s new friendship group,” a Hollywood agent alleged to the Daily Mail. “Meghan has a close-knit circle of friends who are very protective of her.”
The Sussexes’ exclusive inner circle has been dubbed the “Montecito Mafia” by one Hollywood exec, according to the Mail, which is rumored to include Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King, photographer Misan Harriman and Meghan’s former “Suits” co-stars Sarah Rafferty and Abigail Spencer.
Longtime activist Gloria Steinem has also been a close friend of the Duchess, presenting the Women of Vision Award to Meghan mere hours before the couple were involved in a supposed “near-catastrophic” car chase in May.
Pop star Katy Perry, who performed at King Charles’ coronation, and her husband, actor Orlando Bloom, are also neighbors to the Sussexes in Montecito. However, like the Beckhams, their friendship with the Sussexes has seemingly cooled.
A source told the publication that Perry “has been traveling a lot” which made it “hard to sustain a close friendship.
“Katy performed at King Charles’ coronation concert, so perhaps she’s taken sides?” the Los Angeles insider claimed.
