Victoria Beckham ‘needs friends’

Victoria Beckham is reportedly hoping to forge more friendships with women this year.
The singer-turned-fashion designer and her family have moved back to the UK after their stint in America, following the end of her husband David's contract with soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy.
Although she loves being back in her home country, Victoria has started to realise she needs more female friendships in her life.
"Victoria had a handful of close friends in LA - she'd get invites from other soccer wives and have play dates with a group of Hollywood mums. But, back in London, she feels a bit friendless," an insider told the British edition of Closer magazine.
"She's determined that this year she'll try to relax work and focus on her personal life and rebuilding friendships."
The star has four children with David and her fashion business is going from strength to strength. She has always prided herself on putting her family first but has reportedly started to think she might need to give other areas of her life some attention.
"Victoria sometimes feels like, despite everything she's achieved over the years, she's failed somewhat because she doesn't have many friends. She's not settling into London well yet - it's all family and work. It's brought home the fact that some friendships have fallen by the wayside," an insider said.
"She was in tears last week. She has lots of business people she considers acquaintances, but few people she can call to chat about personal stuff or meet for coffee and a gossip like she used to in LA. And her LA pals now seem so far away."
The star found fame with her Spice Girls bandmates Mel B, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Mel C. The women are rumoured not to be that close, which is also thought to be on Victoria's mind.
"Victoria has little contact with the Spice Girls and has been hanging out with her sister Louise a lot since moving back. She's been upset and saying, 'I've always put being a mum first, then a wife, then my career - and there's been no time for me.' Now she has few friends, she misses that," a source explained.
