Friends of the actress indicated at the time that she is determined to keep running her company, despite the fact that her adversaries have derided it as a vanity endeavor.

Mrs. Beckham’s beauty line, which she launched in 2019, lost £4.7 million in February 2021, according to reports.
A spokeswoman for Mrs. Beckham said: ‘Whilst 2019 was a challenging year, the business halved its losses – a significant step in the road to profitability. The launch of the hugely successful beauty line in the same year helped drive overall revenues up 7% on 2018 and both businesses are focussed on profitable growth.
‘The showcase of the recent AW21 fashion collection has been well-received by fashion critics and the beauty business has seen multiple sell-out products in recent months.’
