They were once close but their relationship has turned frosty
Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes were once best mates close but the pair are no longer close.
Although husbands Tom Cruise, 45, and David Beckham, 33, are buddies and the two couples are still attending the same events, Katie and Posh have stopped seeing eye to eye after a number of key clashes that have caused hurt and disappointment on both sides. Here, we can reveal whats torn them apart
Theyve argued over Scientology
The row over Katie and Toms Scientology faith was the straw that broke the camels back. When Victoria made it clear shed never even consider joining the cult last December, relations froze over.
Katies fully embraced Scientology and takes it very seriously,’ says our source. ‘Victoria underestimated how important it is to her and thought they could have girly chats about life and men.’
Posh thinks weird Toms too controlling
At first, the novelty of being friends with Hollywoods most powerful man was flattering. Victoria used to laugh at Toms controlling behaviour, but after only a few months, his dominance over Katie began to wear thin. Victoria’s told her family and friends that she thinks hes ‘weird.
Katie finally snapped when Victoria suggested she stop acting like a robot with Tom.
They cant agree on parenting issues
As parents of 3 sons Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 5, and Cruz, 3 Victoria and David believe in firmly disciplining the boys and they wont tolerate bad manners. This is totally different to how Tom and Katie treat their daughter Suri, 2. Shes given a free rein and they refuse to ever reprimand her as it conflicts with the Scientology belief that children should be treated like adults.
Posh got sick of Katie copying her
When Posh first met Katie two years ago, the former Dawson’s Creek star dressed in frumpy outfits and looked older than her 27 years. Victoria changed all that.
Katie was fascinated with Victorias style and transformed herself accordingly.
Posh felt rather uncomfortable that her style was being mimicked so literally, says our source, and Katie realised Poshs lifestyle didnt sit comfortably with her. Shes more like your typical Californian, shunning alcohol and religiously going to the gym. Victorias not like that she enjoys a few glasses of wine and hates working out. It just showed how little they really have in common.
