Reason Elton John is skipping godson Brooklyn Beckhams wedding

The creme de la creme of the entertainment and fashion world is set to attend Brooklyn Beckham's extravagant nuptials to Nicola Peltz.

However, one person who will not be in attendance at the ceremony, set to be held on Saturday 9 April at Nicola's billionaire parents' Florida estate, is Brooklyn's famous godparent, Elton John.

Elton has been friends with the Beckhams for decades, and he even made a small cameo in Victoria's 1997 Spice World movie before Posh wrote him a letter thanking him for making her realise singing and dancing wasn't her greatest passion.

Since being made godfather to Brooklyn and his brother Romeo, icon Elton, his husband David Furnish and their kids, Zachary and Elijah, have enjoyed regular holidays with David and Victoria and their brood.


So, it seemed like a no-brainer that Elton would be in attendance at Brooklyn and Nicola's wedding.

However, the reason why Elton is unable to make it is because the wedding clashes with his rescheduled tour.

The appointment of Elton as a godparent of David and Victoria's children reportedly led to a row within the Beckham family.

It was previously claimed that David's parents were not happy that none of the relatives on their side was chosen to be the boys' godparents.

A source close to Beckham's family told The Mail in 2004: "You have to ask yourself why it is that Liz Hurley and Elton John have been asked to be godparents when David's own flesh and blood have been excluded.

"David's dad has had a real go at him about it, but he just shrugs his shoulders and has more or less said that there is nothing he can do about it."

The insider added: "They feel humiliated and upset because Victoria's family are there on the ground making the arrangements and playing such a big part in it while the Beckhams are being treated like an afterthought."

Brooklyn, 23, is said to be set to tie the knot on Saturday April 9 2022 at the family mansion of the 27 year old Transformers: Age of Extinction actress in Palm Beach, Florida.

According to the Mail on Sunday, a prenup has reportedly been drawn up to protect the £380 million fortune of Brooklyn's parents along with the staggering estimated £1.3 billion wealth of Nicola's businessman father Nelson Peltz.
