The Spice Girls’ Viva Forever premiered at London's Piccadilly Theatre on Tuesday, but one important element was missing – Victoria Beckham.
The rest of the girls - Melanie Chisholm ("Sporty"), Emma Bunton ("Baby"), Geri Halliwell ("Ginger") and Melanie Brown ("Scary") - got there together and posed for pictures on the red carpet but Beckham (“Posh”) wasn’t there.
She finally arrived with her husband and three sons after being stuck in traffic, but not before keeping audiences waiting, The Huffington Post UK reports.
At the end of the show, the girls thanked writer Jennifer Saunders and producer Judy Craymer and each other. When it was time for Beckham to give her thanks, she acknowledges her family first then thanked the rest of the ladies.
At the afterparty, Beckham was apparently not mingling with the other girls, as Mel C was asked by Digital Spy where she was and she replied "Who? She's with her husband." She then turned to someone else and said Some bitch just asked me where Victoria was. F**k off!"
A source explained of Beckham’s absence, "It touched a raw nerve with Mel - it's not a case of them detaching themselves from Victoria, it's her separating herself from them."
