David Beckham Calls Out Wife For Claiming Her Family Was “Very Working Class”, Wins The Internet

ADVERTISEMENT

A Netflix documentary dealing with David Beckham’s life from his childhood through to his most recent role as the co-owner of Inter Miami was released earlier this week (October 4).

Beckham also features David’s love life with Victoria Beckham, and with it, sheds light on the ups and the downs of their 24-year-long relationship, including David’s 2004 cheating scandal.

Nevertheless, a new clip of the four-part docuseries has now gone viral, and with good reason, as it highlights just how real the England captain can get.

David appeared to be dragging the former Spice Girls member for claiming she had been brought up in a “working-class” household.

Fans were ecstatic to see the football star demanding she show some honesty, as she was filmed sitting in an interview.

During the interview with the Spice Girls member, Victoria talked about the fact that both she and her husband came from “hard-working families”.

“We’re very working class,” Victoria explained.

That’s when David popped his head out from behind a door into his wife’s interview, scolding her for being dishonest to the producers.

From off-camera, David could be heard saying: “Be honest.”

As much as Victoria, notable for being “Posh Spice” in the iconic girl band, tried to protest the athlete’s questionings, David pressed the issue further.

“What car did your dad drive you to school in?” David pushed.

“It’s not a simple answer,” Victoria replied, trying to dodge a bullet.

But the midfielder persisted: “What car did you get your dad to drive you to school in?”

Eventually, the fashion designer was forced to admit that her dad drove her in one of the most luxurious cars to exist.

“OK, in the ’80s my dad had a Rolls-Royce,” Victoria finally cracked.

Satisfied with his interrogation, David simply said “thank you”, before shutting the door on her, leaving Victoria perplexed on the interview couch.

Victoria was born in 1974 in Essex, England, the eldest of three children.

Her mother, Jacqueline Doreen, was a former insurance clerk and hairdresser, while her father, Anthony William Adams, worked as an electronics engineer.

Mrs. Beckham’s parents went on to found an electronics wholesale business which reportedly allowed a comfortable upbringing for Victoria and her siblings.

Meanwhile, David was born in Leytonstone, an Eastern borough of London.

Decider critics recommended viewers stream the docuseries, as “there’s lots of great footage of Beckham on and off the pitch over the past three decades and just enough personal stuff to keep viewers engaged”.

They also wrote: “But don’t expect too much in the way of revelations or controversy.”

There's a common misunderstanding about the British sense of 'Class'. Historically there was always a clear link between wealth and 'class' but since the industrial revolution that's become much more blurred. Hence you can have relatively poor 'Upper Class' people, whose education and upbringing clearly define them as such but who don't really have shedloads of money to kick around, while a "self made millionaire" most likely retains the values and attitudes of their working class roots regardless of how much money they have. So I think she's got a point, the Roller doesn't change her dad's class, but OTOH her own is defined by her upbringing, which is clearly _not_ working class, even if she thinks it was.

Class and money are not the same thing as you say and these are (today at least) socioeconomic descriptors: "Working class" is a socioeconomic term used to describe people in a social class marked by jobs that provide low pay and require limited skill. Victoria's parents owned an electronics wholesale business, so not working class.
