Geri Horner absent from Beckham premiere as Christian and daughter go alone

Christian Horner on Red Bull’s success and hints at next step

Christian Horner attracted plenty of attention at the London screening of the Beckham premiere on Tuesday when he showed up without wife Geri but with a guest who shares the same flame-haired appearance instead – his step-daughter Bluebell.

The 49-year-old Red Bull boss donned a navy suit and crisp white shirt for the occasion, while his companion rocked an all-black outfit – but where was Geri?

The woman formerly known as Ginger Spice is currently in New York and is believed to have been involved in promotional activities for her debut novel, which is launched today and reimagines the life and times of Anne Boleyn.

Rosie Frost and the Falcon Queen is a passion project for the star, who says she studied English Literature before becoming a member of one of Britain’s biggest-ever girl bands.

Geri raged that Anne Boleyn “deserved redemption” after being executed in her 20s despite having a young child, and told Town and Country magazine that sharing stories like hers could be helpful to “marginalised” women.

She added that “girl power” – the iconic phrase associated with The Spice Girls back in the 1990s – is “in my DNA”.

Seeming to silence any reports of a feud, Geri added that she would “love to” get involved with a reunion with the group as she “loves” spending time with the other girls.

However, she insisted that her priority right now is promoting her new novel.

“[My book] Rosie is just like having a child. I feel like she deserves this attention, but you love all your children… so if/when [a reunion] happens, that would be wonderful,” she declared.

Meanwhile, as Geri introduces the world to her troubled fictional character, Victoria Beckham has vented about her own past via her new documentary.

During the candid Netflix show, she spoke of how she wanted to “kill” those who attacked husband David Beckham over errors he made on the football pitch.

At a 1998 World Cup match, fans saw red after David was sent off with a red card for kicking a rival player – and a Man United receptionist has now made the astonishing revelation that he then intercepted bullets in letters which were intended for Beckham.

An effigy of David was hung up outside a pub, while Victoria says he descended into a deep depression over the death threats and insults he continually received.

“He was really depressed, absolutely clinically depressed. It pained me so much, I still want to kill these people,” Victoria raged.

David and Victoria attended the premiere at The Curzon in Mayfair with their four kids – Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 12.

Brooklyn and wife Nicola Peltz made the journey over from the USA, where he now lives with her, while Romeo also had his own partner, model Mia Regan, on his arm.

Though Geri might not have been able to attend, Baby Spice Emma Bunton was there – and Christian Horner was joined by plenty of other high-profile celebrities at the event, from the Beckhams’ family friend James Corden and Vogue’s Anna Wintour to Alex Scott and Gary Neville.
