There aren’t many who can spend like P. Diddy, get hooked up with more designer garb than J. Lo, and give most of the rappers featured on MTV Cribs a run for their money. But then again, there aren’t many couples like the Beckhams who, despite lacking the bloodline connection, have been declared England’s Royalty for over five years.
The 34 year old former Spice Girl and the 33 year old world famous soccer player spend like it’s their purpose on Earth. With over $3 million valued in cars, more than $7 million in real estate, and countless other millions in clothing, jewelry, and toys, just how do the Beckhams fuel their extravagant spending habits? Together the couple is said to be worth over $82 million- $16 million of which is Victoria’s. David, who used to earn $163,000 a week as England’s highest paid soccer star, just recently signed a deal with Spain’s team that will make him $40 million richer.
Then there are his endorsements with brands like Police sunglasses, that gave him an additional $1.6 million alone. He designs a hot selling line for Adidas, known as the DB Range and inked a deal with top UK department store Marks & Spencer to design children’s clothes. The couple’s recent promotional tour in Japan- where they sold their face to everything from chocolate bars to used car dealers, put an estimated $10 million in their pocket. Not bad for one week of work.
England will have to bid adieu to the couple as they scramble to establish a life in Madrid with sons Brooklyn and Romeo. Victoria is hoping to keep busy by possibly opening up a fashion boutique with her sister, Louise, where she can hock her $285 per jar line of skin moisturizers. If that fails she can always dig into the $1.5 million she got from Penguin Books for her life story, or fall back on modeling for Rocawear or Samantha Thavasa Handbags (who paid her $1.6 million to pose on a couch for a few photos). Like Nicky Hilton, who designs a range for Samantha Thavasa, Victoria has expressed interest in having an accessories line with them. So with all this income, just how does Posh & Becks feed their spending addiction?
