The young couple reunited with Victoria Beckham during the designer's fashion show in Paris last week, which apparently put an end to rumors regarding their ongoing tension.
The Paris Fashion Week family reunion, according to a source, was merely a matter of ‘playing nice’ while the cameras were on them, according to the Dailymail.
The truth behind the Beckhams' Paris reunion
Behind the scenes, however, the situation is more complicated since the American actress now thinks that she has ‘done her part’ and the Beckhams ‘owe her one.’
When the 27-year-old showed up to her mother-in-law Victoria's Fashion Week show, rumors of a prolonged disagreement seemed to be put to rest.
The shocking appearance appeared to be a public declaration putting an end to months of rumors that Nicola and Victoria were at odds over her decision to wear a Valentino gown to their opulent weddings earlier this year rather than a gown from Victoria's own fashion business.
An insider told Heat magazine that although the Paris ceasefire somewhat helped, it has now complicated matters since Nicola now believes she has ‘done her part’ and the Beckhams ‘owe her one’, according to the source.
Nicola Peltz refused to spend Christmas with the Beckhams
The source also revealed to Heat that 'no one believes the reunion would last long'. They also claimed that the Bates Motel actress turned down the chance to 'spend Christmas with the Beckhams', which has been the second year in a row.
‘Brooklyn explained that his parents were upset – that’s why she turned up to the show. But no one believes the reconciliation will last long – especially now Nicola has refused to spend Christmas with the Beckhams for the second year in a row.'
Brooklyn had thought the Paris Fashion Week appearance would be a turning point, but they continued by saying she now knows it's not that simple because Nicola had 'no intention' of spending Christmas with her in-laws.
While the famous family was in Paris, it has been said that adoring father David took Brooklyn away to tell him that his family loves him and will be there for him no matter what.
And, according to the source, they used the chance to invite the newlyweds to the celebrations at their multi-million Cotswolds residence.
‘Since you live with the Peltzes, it would be lovely if you came to us,’ David is reported to have said to his eldest son.
However, the insider informed the magazine that David and Victoria were 'sorry to hear' the response to their invitation, which stated that it was reportedly customary for the first Christmas to be spent with the bride's family.
Meanwhile, 23-year-old Brooklyn spent the day with Nicola's family last year, missing out on the matching pajamas and stockings that were strung over their fireplace.
David and Victoria Beckham, however, are rumored to be persistent as they have since reached out to Brooklyn and Nicola and extended the invitation to a 'pre-Christmas weekend in the Cotswolds or a New Year's holiday in Miami.' The source told the publication that Brooklyn's parents will 'try to fight his corner for him', being aware of how he 'wants Nicola to be happy':
‘They are not making it easy for the pair to decline. They know Brooklyn wants Nicola to be happy and finds it hard to make plans that might go against her wishes, so they’ll try to fight his corner for him.'
