The only way to find out her real ancestry is a dna test. I’m pretty sure she has some Southern European ancestry, maybe Jewish and maybe Asian. One of my cousins looks like her and my cousin is mostly Spanish and Southeast Asian.

andrew March 18, 2017 at 1:26 pm

There are Southern European women who look like her (as Giuliana Rancic, who also is too skinny and tanning-addicted as Victoria), and British people who look kinda Southern European or even Balkan, but Victoria’s parents and sister look like average British people, so this is evidently not the case.

neiltennant June 17, 2018 at 12:22 pm

absolutely right

she looks like a half brit half iranian girls and women

for example

YASMINE LE BON

half iranian

neiltennant September 19, 2016 at 10:43 am

we should say bye bye to old beliefs about ethnicity and heritage

There are brits whose ancestors had been in India and had affairs with indian women or men.

Thats a fact

Even PRINCESS DI had indian descent.

HOLLY JOHNSON of FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD and even CLIFF RICHARD

SO THERE is a chance that also victoria might have some indian blood in her

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:29 pm

With her old nose pre surgery if she came out and said she was part black I would totally believe her.

Capricious October 9, 2015 at 6:00 am

Add a clearer picture where her face shows?

LucarioCooper September 12, 2015 at 6:43 pm

She looks very evil.

neiltennant July 29, 2015 at 3:33 am

hmm over the years i saw a lot of darker types of brits on tv screen or live in the uk

its strange but there is a type of brits, which is pale but has dark eyes and hair

harriet thorpe

lilly allen

vic beckham

J420 October 18, 2015 at 7:23 am

Nothing strange about it.

neiltennant July 12, 2015 at 4:34 pm

on her older photos with the old nose and face she looked like a latina

neiltennant June 9, 2015 at 1:39 am

Her grand grand grandfather was Carl Pfaender.

Maybe he was a German Jew.

WTF June 3, 2014 at 2:40 pm

she looks very exotic for a white woman. she looks part black and native american. she could pass for a multiracial brazilian or puerto rican

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:19 am

Can I quote your username? – WTF

So if someone is “exotic”, they are automatically part black or Native American? And what Native American? This woman is from England. Gee…

If anything, you can say she is Portuguese or Italian. The others are a stretch….

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:31 pm

England is very multicultural and some Caribbeans from ex British colonies are immigrating there. Plus UK does in contrast to Europe have a lot of black people in there.

neiltennant October 3, 2016 at 2:08 pm

theropod

EVEN LADY DI had indian ancestry

there is a chance that she is of indian or african descent

fatkat February 27, 2017 at 8:14 am

England IS in Europe you idiot. And Victoria clearly is not black at all.

fuzzybear44 February 28, 2017 at 3:20 am

@fatkat

Yes England is in Europe, but black people have been in England for a long time, and have mixed with the white population there. So it’s very easy for her to have African blood in her ancestry, not saying she does, just that it is possible

neiltennant March 22, 2017 at 1:09 pm

@fatkat

you are an idiot why you call me this way ?

you are stupid like shit

only because ENGLAND is in europe it does not mean that everybody there is european

Check7t February 24, 2014 at 11:15 pm

She’s probably 1/8th black, no more.

andrew February 25, 2014 at 7:36 am

she’s white, stfu

Check7t February 25, 2014 at 10:58 pm

She looks part black, not the first person to notice it either.

Jordan April 11, 2015 at 1:45 pm

She can’t be part black, she is English. Black people have not lived in europe until very recent years. Black slaves were not taken directly to England.

fuzzybear44 April 12, 2015 at 4:50 am

@Jordan

I don’t know what Victoria true background is, and I’m not saying she is or isn’t part black. However this comment you made is completely wrong. It’s obvious you didn’t even try to check things out before you type this .Black people have always been in Europe, they were the first humans there(based on current info)

Kimmel March 17, 2016 at 12:38 pm

Parts of history have been ‘whitewashed’. Wouldn’t want it getting out that great inventions, traditions and ideas belong to other races.

crunty May 2, 2016 at 1:44 pm

There have been black people in europe for over 2000 years, as a consequence of the Roman Empire. There were black people on the island of Britain when it was an integral part of the Western Roman Empire. England, Wales and Scotland didn’t exist then.

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:33 pm

Yes. England is becoming more multicultural than ever before and even back during the early 1900s considering how Ryan Giggs the guy whose 1/4th black was born in UK.

I could see her being part black and I wouldn’t bat an eye if she claimed too.

Check7t February 24, 2014 at 11:14 pm

Wide nose, big lips, overall she has that SSA features.

Multiethnicchick April 16, 2015 at 6:46 am

her lips arent’ big and her nose is protrusive just like white persons. The lighting doesn’t really show her features but she’s obviously a white woman. People are so stupid these days. They probably see a tan white girl with curly hair and they’ll say “must be part black” idiots. I guess that’s what happens when Hitler esque standards of whiteness take over

alexgxo September 16, 2016 at 8:35 pm

Have seen her nose before the surgery? It might be bridged sure but the nostrils looked odd.

Btw there were rumours online before if she was mixed and while people argued it was her tan a lot of users mentioned her features.

Check7t February 24, 2014 at 11:14 pm

She looks part black.

zombiecop August 6, 2013 at 6:48 am

it`s not proven that she has German ancestry that historian who claims she is descended from Carl Heinrich Pfaender is most likely wrong.I repeat he only CLAIMS she is a descendant of Carl Heinrich Pfaender but he doesn`t have a proof.

andrew January 20, 2013 at 7:02 pm

in that photo she looks like Jennifer Love Hewitt

andrew July 16, 2013 at 3:21 pm

I still think she’s Hewitt and not Victoria Adams (married Beckham)

nnnnn December 17, 2012 at 11:58 am

a lot of people don’t believe, mr.Bean is English.
Jeremy Irons isn’t “too dark”, and he has an european face,
without this funny nose

nnnnn December 17, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Atkinson’s family tree is convinsend. And he’s ugly, but
not “dark”. Iron’s son isn’t dark, and he has a long, thin
nose. Mr. Bekham has a wide nose, like asian or african
people

nnnnn December 17, 2012 at 1:12 am

How can an english person be “dark”? English people are
a mixion of germans, scandinavians (danes and William the
Conqueror’s Nothermen) and celts. They don’t need to be
blond. F.e. some german women look Knightley, too.
But V.Beckham and Zeta-Johens can’t be pur english

SmartAss July 16, 2013 at 11:52 am

just for your information german people are darker than english ;)

stonelord July 10, 2015 at 11:58 am

Are you kidding me? look up Atlanto Mediterranean. I can assure you, buddy, I am 100% British isles ancestry back hundreds of years and I have dark hair and hazel eyes…and where the sun catches my feet when I’m working, it goes a pretty dusky brown. (I put sunblock on my face.)

christianz June 15, 2012 at 6:43 am

of course there are many many black haired and brown eyed people in britain or in middle europe

but look at her eyes they are dark dark dark brown

hmm very strange case

it is said that she might be of german descent

it is very possible that her ancestors had been German Jews.

her father also looks something middle eastern

levangelista36 June 16, 2012 at 1:13 am

David Beckham is Jewish.

That’s her husband.

nnnnn October 15, 2012 at 1:50 am

Typical? O’k I learned already, ANGLO-SAXONS
are not white

nnnnn October 15, 2012 at 1:52 am

Oh, I know, they are “dark”, cuz they have some
german roots. “ha-ha”

nnnnn October 17, 2012 at 1:31 am

I couldn’t undwerstand, which sence has this “ha-ha”

Perhaps, Naomi Campbell looks typical british woman
to YOU

nnnnn October 15, 2012 at 1:21 am

Black haired people are muslim immigrants.
English people can have brown hair.

Petrarca May 29, 2012 at 8:11 pm

When she was younger I thought she was part black.

christian March 22, 2012 at 2:53 pm

keira knightley, catherine zeta jones, victoria beckham are those dark british people.

i was in britain and there are so many people who look like her,

she is not mixed in conventional sense,

but britain was a seapower centuries ago and there was contact with egypt, india and other countries

Humma March 17, 2012 at 8:02 pm

she’s ugly, beckham could’ve done better

Bella February 29, 2012 at 11:44 am

She is white! seriously. black people are always trying to claim beautiful white people. not that Victoria is beautiful, just talking about other whities …. lol

Misaaaaaaa January 15, 2012 at 7:18 pm

The only thing this site does is make people more ignorant, racist, and lacking in brain cells.

Neither Catherine Zeta Jones or Victoria Beckham are lying about their ethnic heritage.

Dee December 14, 2011 at 2:34 pm

Before she had cosmetic surgery you could see that she was, and is, not white. I’m sure she has some British blood but she also has to have quite a bit of African to look the way she does. I wish she’d just own up to it but then, she wouldn’t be “Posh”, would she?

mm February 19, 2012 at 6:37 pm

She never looked African at all!!!!

me November 28, 2011 at 9:12 am

she’s ugly,she has a pig nose

BAN VIKING! March 17, 2012 at 6:12 pm

I think Victoria was sort of pretty when she was first with the Spice Girls, but now she has gotten too skinny and looks worse.

BAN VIKING! March 17, 2012 at 6:13 pm

I think Victoria was sort of pretty back in the day, but now she has gotten too skinny and looks worse.

nnnnn October 17, 2012 at 1:26 am

She has an african nose

Andrezza October 12, 2011 at 11:08 am

WHAT? she is 100% white? Repair the nose and the color of her skin, she looks like a typical mulatto.

V123 June 18, 2011 at 7:33 am

Her birth name is Adams, not Beckham.

Dee May 7, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Posh has black blood in her. Also, Catherine Zeta Jones has Maori blood.

Everyone is supposedly so accepting of all races today yet these two continue to lie about their ancestry. What does that tell you?

get May 8, 2011 at 3:51 am

@dee

It tells us that if they are indeed part of those bloodlines,that they don’t want to be ID with those bloodlines

rightnow March 18, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Did not know she was part German, good to know!

baby fantasy January 31, 2011 at 1:13 pm

shes ugly beckham can do WAY better than that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

alex January 31, 2011 at 10:29 am

She doesn’t look english neither german..

liz November 1, 2010 at 9:17 pm

with her olive complexion, i always thought she might have some south or eastern european in her ancestry.

Paul December 22, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Everyone always brings up Italian of Greek, but with that nose it is clear that African activity is present. You can also get African activity in Italy and Greece since blacks were there first!

mm February 19, 2012 at 6:39 pm

She tans, that’s why her skin looks “olive.” She use to be paler.
