A British magazine reports that Victoria and David Beckham have their eye on the Versace Mansion should Becks be bending toward bringing his MLS team down to Miami. Speculation has been that he is seriously considering the move but would the couple seriously consider living on one of Miami’s most trafficked, touristy thoroughfares? Gianni Versace did it back in the day, but that was way before the TGI Friday’s and Fat Tuesday’s moved in.
We asked someone close to the Beckhams and were told, “That house is way too tacky for Victoria. She may be a fashion icon, but I can’t see her living in that ostentatious house on that dreadful street.” Said Jill Eber of The Jills, the real estate team co-marketing the manse, which is set to be auctioned off in bankruptcy proceedings (min. bid $25 mil) Sept. 17: "My comment would be we can’t comment. Any buyer we work with is confidential." But according to Kevin Tomlinson, Vice President of ONE Sotheby’s International, who has nothing to do with the property, "I’ve heard nothing. The Jordache family — Nakash — owns the lien so they’re first up to get it." Or the first to sell it to the Beckhams. Stay tuned.
