Posh who? says Britney
(thesun.co.uk) - Their arrival in LA has hardly been low-key. But one of the city's most famous residents has let the Beckhams' move to the States completely pass her by. Britney Spears did not recognise Victoria Beckham when she bumped into the Spice Girl in a restaurant last week.
That is despite Posh helping her out by introducing herself as "Victoria from the Spice Girls". Britney just looked confused and walked off.
Posh was with hubby David - the world's most recognisable sportsman - but still the penny didn't drop. The pair's awkward exchange at swanky celeb hang-out Chateau Marmont last Tuesday has been the talk of Tinseltown.
Americans have been arguing over who snubbed who.While some claimed Victoria left after Britney sat down next to her, others insisted it was Britney who refused to sit near Posh.
But I can reveal it was more a case of "Who are you?" than Who Do You Think You Are?
A source said: "They bumped into each other in the Chateau Marmont and Victoria said, 'Hi Britney. I'm Victoria from the Spice Girls'.
"But Britney had no idea who she was. She just looked at her with a vacant and bemused expression and turned and walked away."
Now I realise Britney's not likely to be a soccer fan, and she's probably been too busy running around LA behaving strangely to have caught up with the latest on the Beckhams in the news.
But the Spice Girls were huge in the States and you'd have thought that, as a fellow pop star, Britney might have caught a glimpse of the girl band at some stage.
Britney's behaviour and state of mind has gone from bad to worse in recent weeks.Sources at one magazine said she suffered a shocking meltdown at a photoshoot last month.
She babbled incoherently, vomited on her dress and cleaned up her dog's mess with another designer outfit, it was claimed. Before that incident she allegedly slapped her mum Lynne during a heated row and stripped down to her bra and knickers on a Malibu beach to take a dip in the sea.
The singer was in rehab earlier this year after famously shaving off her hair in a salon. Pals claim she has taken ecstasy, cocaine and powerful anti-anxiety prescription drugs.
I wonder if the Spice Girls really went over Britney's head or if she is just too out of it to remember?In contrast to Britney's fall from grace, Posh has made a real splash in the States, enjoying the company of a host of top stars.
