says she removed her tattoo of husband ’s
initials as it wasn’t ‘delicate’.
The former Spice Girl, 48, sparked a raft of rumours about why she had it removed when , but she has shrugged off any speculation it was a sign she was leaving her the retired footballer and revealed a much more sensible explanation.
Victoria told the Today show on Thursday (October 13): ‘I had these tattoos a long, long time ago and they just weren’t particularly delicate.
‘Mine were just a little bit thick and they were bleeding a little bit and they just weren’t as pretty. They just didn’t look so nice. It doesn’t mean anything more than that.
‘The media started to speculate, “Was I leaving my husband?” No. I was just a bit sick of the tattoo. It’s as simple as that.’
It’s not the first tattoo change Victoria has undergone over the years, as she seems to have begun the process of removing some of her designs several years ago.
The ‘DB’ wrist tattoo looked faded for a while before being almost completely removed this week.
Meanwhile a design referencing the date she and David renewed their wedding vows on May 8, 2006 – VIII-V-MMVI – has also disappeared from her wrist, along with the words ‘together, forever, eternally’ written in Hebrew on her back.
The loved up couple are still going strong, with both of them spotted out and about in New York City after earlier in the week.
The fashion designer looked chic in a stunning sleeveless white dress, while her husband rocked the double denim look in matching blue jeans and shirt.
During her appearance on the Today show, Victoria – who shares children Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 20, Cruz, 17, and Harper, 11, with David, 47 –between her and Brooklyn’s new wife .
She said: ‘It was a beautiful wedding. As a mother, to see my son so happy, means so much.’
When asked what lessons she hopes her son and model Nicola, 27, take from her marriage to David, Victoria replied: ‘I think it’s about being a close family and having the lines of communication always open.
‘You can never really offer advice, the kids have to figure it out themselves but you have to be there.’
Victoria was seen with Brooklyn and Nicola during Paris Fashion Week, following Nicola claiming Victoria had bailed on plans to make her wedding dress when she got hitched to Brooklyn in April.
Nicola, who ended wearing a couture Valentino gown for her big day, claimed she didn’t hear from Victoria for days before she rang to say she wouldn’t make the dress for her nuptials.
