GERI Halliwell’s fiancé’s parents have reportedly refused to attend their wedding.
The former Spice Girl announced her engagement to Infiniti Red Bull Racing Formula 1 boss Christian Horner last month but it seems their happy news didn’t go down too well with his mother and father, Garry and Sara, as they are allegedly furious that he left his partner of 14 years, Beverley Allen, just months after she had given birth to their first child, daughter, Olivia.
An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “You can say that his parents are absolutely devastated. We won’t be going to the wedding. There is a lot more to this story than people know about – to do with his ex-partner.”
A friend of Christian, 40, added: “Over the years Christian has been very close to his parents – particularly to his dad who shares his love of motor racing – but recent events have thrown everything into doubt. His mum is particularly upset.
“It’s a real shame and everyone involved is upset. Weddings are expected to bring families closer together, but this engagement has driven a wedge between people.” – BANG!
