There's no doubt that Victoria Beckham is a lady who usually gets what she wants, but her latest quest seems to be coming between her and husband David.
The couple - in England for Christmas - have fallen out over the former Spice Girl's desire to buy a beachfront home in Malibu, Los Angeles, because David does not want to live in America.
Victoria was spotted house-hunting before Christmas and had her eye on a stunning beachfront home close to the Beckhams' new friends Tom and Katie Cruise, reports the Daily Mail.
But the Beckhams lost the property and I'm told 32-year-old Victoria is house-hunting again, this time without her husband.
According to friends, the pop singer turned fashion designer is keen to spend six months of the year in LA.
But David, 31, who reportedly wants to leave Real Madrid in the New Year, hopes to move back to the UK for good.
A friend says: 'It has become a bone of contention between them. Victoria is hellbent on buying in LA but David is less keen.
'Victoria is now tired of Madrid. She is close to the Cruises and their Hollywood friends, and she knows they are influential people who will be able to help her get her next break.
'She's determined to be the breadwinner in 2007 and sees America as the place to make that happen.
'Victoria is putting pressure on David to buy a home in Malibu and wants it so badly she has said she'll pay for it herself.'
Yet she may have to tone down her expectations. 'Victoria is very fussy and has fallen out with several estate agents,' says my West Coast mole. 'She's more demanding than some of Hollywood's biggest stars.'
