David and Victoria Beckham Pocket £22MILLION Bonus From Their Business Empire

Superstar couple David and Victoria Beckham have pocketed part of a £33million windfall from their business empire.

Accounts shows annual profits at Beckham Brand Holdings quadrupled from £10million to nearly £40million.

The business oversees Victoria’s fashion firm and DB Ventures , which rakes in money from “licensing and other forms of commercialisation of the ‘David Beckham’ brand”.

Documents filed at Companies House show the parent company dished out a £23.1million dividend to shareholders for 2015, on top of £9million in 2014.

But the accounts go on to disclose that, during 2016, “dividends totalling £10.2million have been declared and paid to its shareholders”.

Records show Beckham Brand Holdings is jointly owned by ex-footie ace David, Victoria and Spice Girls svengali Simon Fuller ’s XIX Management firm.

Given the Beckhams own two thirds of the business, it means they shared £22.2million of the £33.3million in total dividends lavished by the firm.

Yet the company is just part of many the couple have built-up over the years.
