As the first anniversary of Brooklyn Beckham and Nicola Peltz’s wedding approaches, the mounting lawsuits between the Peltz family and their former wedding planners continue to make headlines. The recommended gift for a couple’s first anniversary is “paper,” and how fitting it is, as papers are being served left and right.

To understand the lawsuits between billionaire Nelson Peltz, Nicola’s father, and Beckham and Nicola’s former wedding planners, Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba of Plan Design Events, a brief rundown is necessary. Nelson Peltz had sued PDE, the second out of three wedding planners his daughter hired, claiming they had not followed through on contractual obligations and wanted a return of his $159,000 deposit. Braghin and Grijalba then countersued, citing breach of contract, and in doing so, a lot of texts between them, Nicola, her mom Claudia Peltz, and Beckham were made public.

It’s worth mentioning that Beckham chimed in on the wedding planning text thread a total of three times, with the brilliant suggestion of serving a burger to girls and a burger to boys. Needless to say, the media had a field day scanning the texts and pulling out details like the burger suggestion and Nicola insisting Ron DeSantis not be on the guest list, much to Papa Peltz’s displeasure.

On Thursday morning, new papers were filed to remove Claudia and Nicola from PDE’s countersuit, claiming their inclusion was “meritless” and “salacious” since they were not part of the initial contractual agreement. Vanity Fair obtained the latest filing, which stated that “In a desperate effort to distract from their own failure to accomplish anything of substance in the short time they purported to act as replacement wedding planners pursuant to an alleged written agreement with Mr. Peltz, and only Mr. Peltz, Defendant PDE filed a salacious, meritless, and legally deficient third-party complaint against Mr. Peltz’s daughter, Nicola, and wife, Claudia.… Aware that its claim is frivolous, PDE shamefully attempts to falsely portray Nicola in an extremely negative light to entice the media and hopefully pressure Mr. Peltz to dismiss his well-founded claims against PDE.”

The statement continued, “While this was tailor-made for the tabloids, it could not be further from the truth.” While Papa Peltz is correct in saying that the media has been enticed, it’s worth noting that his initial lawsuit was petty and unnecessary, drawing needless attention to the whole ordeal. With a reported net worth of well over $1 billion, $159,000 is comparably less than one tenth of one percent of his net worth, making it seem like someone is trying to stir up more drama.

The ongoing lawsuits have caused quite a stir in the media, with the public eagerly following every new development in the case. With the one-year mark of the wedding fast approaching, it remains to be seen how this legal battle will play out. The drama and intrigue surrounding the wedding have made it a topic of discussion, and it seems like it will continue to be so for a while. The first anniversary gift may be paper, but it appears that this couple’s anniversary will be marked by legal papers being passed back and forth.
