In “Bridezilla,” Nicola Peltz clashes with wedding planners after “damaging texts” are exposed when father files lawsuit
THE glamor of Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’ picture-perfect nuptials is beginning to fade, just ten months after the multi-million dollar nuptials.
A new lawsuit in the US – filed by the American actress’ own father – paints a picture of her as a “Bridezilla” who eloped with three wedding planners and allegedly assaulted employees in the run-up to her big day.
The news shouldn’t come as a surprise to Brooklyn’s parents, David and Victoria.
While they were the picture of support at last April’s £5million party, it was later revealed that Nicola had fallen out with fashion designer Victoria over whether the former Spice Girl would design her wedding dress.
There was also unrest at the wedding, with Nicola reportedly “in tears” after US singer Marc Anthony dedicated a song to Brooklyn and Victoria rather than her.
While the feud between Victoria and 28-year-old Nicola over the dress was well-reported at the time, new allegations about Nicola’s pre-wedding antics have now surfaced thanks to her billionaire father, fast-food tycoon Nelson Peltz.
He is suing Nicola’s second wedding planners, Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba, for allegedly failing to return his £129,000 bail after their involvement in the project ended.
They had been hired after celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey resigned by “mutual agreement” six weeks before the wedding, with court documents revealing he was involved with the party at the Peltzes’ £76million estate in Palm Beach, Florida , “Challenges” faced.
It’s not known why Bailey pulled out, but the “scale” of Brooklyn and Nicola’s wedding seemed to be a big issue.
In his lawsuit, Nelson, 80, makes it clear he expected the duo to pick up where Bailey left off.
The arrangement didn’t work, however, and in the lawsuit Nelson makes a number of allegations about their alleged shortcomings.
The documents speak enormously to Nicola and her accomplishments.
One line reads, “Nicola is a world-renowned actress who has starred in blockbuster movies and television shows including Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Bates Motel, and The Last Airbender, among others.”
Speaking of the wedding, Nelson’s attorneys continue: “The guest list included more than 500 people, including numerous celebrities, athletes, dignitaries and other influential people who traveled from all over the world to attend.
“The celebrity status of the wedding couple coupled with the expected attendance of many high-profile guests required that the wedding planner have the expertise and staff to plan, coordinate and execute a wedding event of the anticipated caliber and complexity.”
However, Nelson claims nine days after Nicole and Arianna were hired, they parted ways with them because they couldn’t handle the VIP guest list.
As part of his lawsuit, he uses texts between Nicole, Arianna and Nicola to express their disagreements, including what appears to be an ongoing dispute over the guest list.
The lyrics show Nicola appearing to berate the couple, with an angry message telling Nicole and Arianna that she’s “tired of realizing her flaws” on the RSVP list.
The row appeared to have been sparked after British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton appeared on the ‘confirmed’ list despite not being able to take part.
The messages – in a group labeled “The Real Planners” – show Nicola saying: “Lewis Hamilton did NOT respond. So please explain why his name is on the list.
“We spoke with him. He can’t come, so explain why you said he answered yes.”
Arianna replies: “I need time for this.
“I’ll take a moment to get to know the app and send you the information. I hate looking like an idiot, but what I hate most is not getting you what you need asap.
“I will be back soon.”
Nicola then hits back: “That’s not true. He didn’t answer at all.”
The Nelson lawsuit also accuses the planners of “drinking” at work.
One line reads: “References to alcohol consumption and possible abuse were not uncommon.”
In messages between Nicola and Arianna, the latter writes: “Now I’m going for a tequila, my head is about to explode.
“But I’m here if you need me.”
To which Nicola replies: “Yes Queen!!!!!!”
In the lawsuit, Nelson alleges the planners overdid their skills and “missed” the couple.
His attorney says, “Peltz had offered them the opportunity of a lifetime to have their names associated with the wedding of two world famous celebrities, which would undoubtedly make (their company) PDE a star of wedding planning.
“In reality, however, it later became clear that PDE saw this as an opportunity to take advantage of Peltz by misrepresenting her experience, expertise and ability to plan the wedding, both on her website and in person.”
The text messages also reveal that Nicola and Brooklyn invited 670 people, asked them all to provide “proof of vaccination” and explained that “12 guests were deleted because they shouldn’t have been invited.”
The row between Nicola, her family and the planners reached a climax on March 4, with just weeks until the big day.
Ominously, the filing refers to the date as “Judgment Day.”
It adds, “During their nine-day negotiations, PDE was unable to book a single new wedding vendor, finalize the terms of agreements with any of the vendors previously selected by Peltz and his family, and participate in previously scheduled Encounters with Peltz.”
“PDE admitted they lacked the skills to deliver the promised services and recommended hiring an additional wedding planner.”
Nelson and his wife Claudia then hired event planner Michelle Rago, who they claim overcharged them because of the event’s tight deadline.
The big day itself – with celebrity guests including chef Gordon Ramsay, Spice Girl Mel B and tennis champion sisters Venus and Serena Williams – was featured on the cover of British Vogue magazine, with Brooklyn and Nicola describing it as “blissful”. designated.
But Nicola’s argument with her organizers was not the only sore point.
While it was made clear in the months leading up to the wedding that designer Victoria would not be in charge of the dress – the job went to Italian fashion house Valentino – next to nothing was said about the decision.
However, four months into their wedding, Nicola claimed Victoria appeared to have snubbed her.
She said in an interview: “I was planning to wear Victoria’s wedding dress.
“I was really so excited to wear a design my future mother-in-law created.
“We connected to start designing the dress and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear anything.
“Victoria called my mother and said her studio couldn’t make it.
“So I spoke to my mom and Leslie (Nicola’s girlfriend, stylist Leslie Fremar) and said, ‘Well, unfortunately that can’t happen, so what’s the next step?’
“When I read things that say I never intended to wear a[Victoria Beckham]dress or anything like that, it hurts my feelings.
“I’m trying not to let it happen, but it’s just not the truth. It’s just a little bit unfortunate when you’re like, ‘Oh, people think that,’ but it’s just not true.”
At the time, insiders told The Sun that Victoria was “sizzling” and a pal said of Nicola: “She can be, well, a bit of a cow when the mood hits.”
They continued: “There seems to be this confusing false narrative being spread by Nicola about this bloody dress.
“Victoria is confused as to why she is continuing to fuel rumors of a feud instead of quelling them.
“David and Victoria both reached out to her to try and make peace and find a way to get along.”
The Beckhams’ olive branch seemed to bear fruit when Nicola appeared at Victoria’s first runway show in Paris in September.
But while she and Brooklyn were both at the event, they didn’t come down for a family meal afterwards.
The legal battle between Nelson and the wedding organizers continues, but his actions have been described as “embarrassing” for Nicola, whose antics they don’t seem to portray in the best light.
A source added: “Just as Victoria wanted the feud to go away, there’s no doubt Nicola will be hoping for this all to die down as soon as possible.
