David Beckham’s 2023 earnings have been disclosed; read them and cry.
The former Manchester United great, 48, launched a new chapter in his career this year with the publication of his Netflix documentary, which debuted in October.
The four-part series, which revisited the stratospheric highs and heartbreaking lows of his football career, also shed light on his personal life and marriage to Victoria Beckham, 49.
Becks made a tidy sum owing to the record-breaking docuseries, which drew 3.8 million viewers in its first week and was worth £20 million.
David Beckham Ventures Limited and Seven Global LLP achieved an eye-watering profit of £72.6 million because to sponsorships and David’s production firm, according to corporate numbers posted on Friday (December 29).
A source spilled to The Sun: ‘It’s been a golden year for Goldenballs. The Netflix documentary deal was worth over £20million alone and its huge success has been vindication.
‘David continues to be flooded with commercial and partnership offers and has never been more in demand – despite retiring 10 years ago.
‘The couple are on course to make over £100million next year, which is quite astonishing.’
And it’s not only David who has made a lot of money this year.
Posh and Becks only increased their empire, with fashion designer Victoria generating a profit for the first time in 15 years, proving they are still the supreme power couple.
Victoria’s fashion and cosmetics companies have lost approximately £66 million since their inception in 2008.
However, the former Spice Girl is now ‘thrilled’ at the sight of her newest financial statements, which show that her firm is £200,000 better off in 2022.
Shoppers have been shelling out on VB’s handbags (some of which cost over £1,000) and make-up (with lipsticks costing £37), with social media said to have played a significant role in her marketing strategy, since she frequently advertises her items on TikTok via tutorials.
Her satin kajal eyeliner, which costs £30, is a popular item that her team has been working hard to supply after an inflow of requests.
According to sources close to Victoria, the liners’ success sprang from Instagram videos showing followers how to apply them and get the distinctive Posh sultry eye look.
Victoria’s pal said that she is’so delighted’ to have turned around her business, which began as a tiny line of gowns 15 years ago.
According to other sources, Victoria’s earnings might rise in 2024, since Netflix executives are apparently interested in her as well.
The Wannabe hitmaker may be bringing her own life story to the small screen, with talks ‘ongoing since the summer’ and TV executives eager to start the ball moving.
A source told The Sun in October: ‘This will be a documentary exploring Victoria’s meteoric rise in the fashion world; how she’s built a fashion and beauty empire from scratch.
‘The focus will very much be on the business brand, but will detail how she had to overcome the naysayers post-Spice Girls and defied the cynics.’
