Seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton’s name as weirdly come up in a legal case regarding Nicola Peltz’s and Brooklyn Beckham’s wedding that took place ten months ago, with Peltz’s father having filed a lawsuit against wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba.
Reportedly, Nelson Peltz is claiming that the wedding planners refused to return a $159,000 deposit, after quitting just nine days into the job.
Supposedly, the wedding planners found the 500 people guestlist too much to handle, resulting in them stepping down.
“The celebrity of the wedding couple combined with the anticipated attendance of many high-profile guests required that the wedding planner have the expertise and staffing to plan, coordinate and execute a wedding event of the expected caliber and complexity,” the lawsuit reads, according to the MailOnline.
Nelson is also reportedly suing for legal fees, with the 80-year-old billionaire’s daughter having accused the wedding planners of “lying” over Hamilton’s RSVP.
Text messages between Nicola and the wedding planners have revealed some frosty interactions, with her having questioned why the Mercedes driver was on the guestlist despite having personally told her that he couldn’t attend.
“We spoke to him. He can’t come so explain why you said he rsvpd yes?” Nicola questioned.
The reason why Hamilton was unable to attend the wedding at a $103million oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, is due to having been in Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix.
Nicola and Brooklyn’s wedding took place on the same weekend as the first race at the Albert Park Circuit since 2019, as a result of Australia’s incredibly strict travel restrictions following the Coronavirus pandemic.
Hamilton finished fourth in Melbourne after missing out on the rostrum by three seconds, with team-mate George Russell having claimed the spot for what was his first podium as a Silver Arrows driver.
That race in Australia was the second consecutive race where Hamilton failed to beat Russell, with the former Williams driver having gone on to finish ahead of the 38-year-old at the following five races.
Hamilton managed to end Russell’s streak of finishing above him at the Canadian Grand Prix, where he claimed a well-deserved podium.
