Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)’s reputation as a far-right Republican reportedly prevented him from being invited to one of the big celebrity weddings last year.
court records earlier this year revealed how badly billionaire Nepo Baby Slash actress Nicola Peltz wanted to keep DeSantis away from her wedding in Palm Beach, Fla. to Brooklyn Beckham, son of pop star Victoria Beckham and soccer star David Beckham.
The bride’s businessman father, Nelson Peltz, is currently suing former wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalbaon for $159,000 in hopes of getting back his deposit on their eight-day planning of the Peltz-Beckham party in Palm Beach.
Whilst Peltz has blasted Braghin and Grijalbaon for not being able to handle the event which cost one reported $4 millionthey countered, arguing that the hosts’ demands could not be met.
Braghin and Grijalbaon said working on the 500-plus guest list was a Sisyphean task made only more difficult by the persistent tweaks of Peltz and mother Claudia Peltz.
In court documents filed in Miami earlier this year, the wedding planners claimed Peltz “adamantly insisted that certain politicians not be invited to the affair,” even though her father had political status major GOP donor.
Snubbing DeSantis appeared to be a priority for the TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION actress, as the text messages cited in the lawsuit show her warning Braghin and Grijalbaon, “Desantis needs to be removed FROM THE GUEST LIST.” PLEASE CONFIRM !”
“Important first thing in the morning,” her mother interjected.
It seemed like Peltz had his way, as there were no DeSantis sightings at their wedding in April 2022.
Adeptly avoiding political trouble, Peltz and Beckham were able to celebrate the night with the likes of Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Eva Longoria, Serena and Venus Williams, Elizabeth Hurley, chef Gordon Ramsay and the groom’s parents.
Meanwhile, it appears Nelson Peltz may have upset DeSantis as well.
Last month, claimed the Financial Times Peltz had concerns about pouring too much money into DeSantis’ 2024 presidential bid, citing the governor’s far-right stance on abortion.
“Nelson Peltz thinks most of DeSantis’ policies are acceptable, but his stance on abortion is way too strict,” a source said. “That could undermine Peltz’s desire to fund DeSantis as a candidate.”
Back in April, DeSantis signed a six-week abortion restriction.
