Tom Cruise has noticed that he has been ‘dragged’ into it David Beckham And Mark Wahlberg‘s epic $10 million dollar feud after attending Victoria Beckham‘s star-studded 50th birthday party on Saturday night.

Like the Mission Impossible star, 61, rocked up at Beckham’s wife’s star-studded birthday party in London and reportedly split the dance floor, cheered on by the likes of Eva Longoria and the reunited Spice Girls, he was probably unaware of the storm brewing online.

We weekly confirmed that Beckham’s DB Ventures company has filed a lawsuit against F45 Training, which is partly owned by his former friend Wahlberg.

The football star, 48, claims in court documents shared by TMZ that the F45 “tricked” him into signing an endorsement deal, but he never received the $10 million he was offered in contract negotiations.

David Beckham and Mark Wahlberg have a history together, long before the couple got into legal trouble with each other. After Beckham and his family moved to Los Angeles and brought the paparazzi with them, Wahlberg noted that this disrupted the peace in the neighborhood. ‘I’m not telling Beckham to take his family home. It’s just not me […]

He said he was promised shares as compensation, which were never delivered after share prices apparently plummeted.

And as he battles it out with the Boogie nights actor, a controversial old video has surfaced adding fuel to the fire.

Little did Beckham’s friend Cruise know that his appearance at the exclusive party would only fuel his own old ‘feud’ with Wahlberg and lead to him siding with Beckham in this new party.

A clip from 2013 made the rounds online, in which Wahlberg appeared to punch Top pistol actor because he suggests that sometimes it feels like acting is like serving as a soldier.

He asked at the time whether shooting a film feels like being a soldier in Afghanistan and replied: “That’s what it feels like and especially with this last film it was brutal. it was brutal.”

Wahlberg bristled at the suggestion that any actor compare the craft to a front-line position.

A video obtained by TMZ showed the star during a Q&A in Los Angeles ahead of a screening of his film Sole survivorin which he plays a Navy SEAL.

“For actors to be able to sit there and talk about, ‘Oh, I went to SEAL training’ — I don’t care what you did,” he said.

“You don’t do what these guys do. You just don’t do that. That someone would sit there and say my job was just as hard as it was in the military. How dare you, sitting in a makeup chair for two hours.

“I don’t care if you get arrested. At the end of the day you can go home. You can go to your hotel room. You can order f—king chicken or steak, whatever the f—k is.

He then asked the Q&A host to stop asking him questions as he calmed down before apologizing for “losing his s–t.”

However, Wahlberg later claimed it was a misunderstanding. During an interview with TMZ, he said: “I didn’t know it was Tom Cruise who said that. Someone just said that people are [making that comparison]. I love Tom Cruise. I have a lot of respect for Tom Cruise, but I have just as much respect for military personnel, so it’s just unfair for anyone to comment on that.

The pair have not crossed paths since, nor have they embarked on any projects together. It hasn’t helped matters that Wahlberg has since said he started producing films because he was tired of waiting for films that Cruise turned down.

Wahlberg’s lawyers have denied the former athlete’s $10 million claims, calling the allegations of “fraudulent conduct” baseless in a motion to dismiss according to The sun.

“The SAC of 209 pages and 610 paragraphs [complaint] tries to make up for in length what it lacks in merit,” said a response from Wahlberg’s lawyers.

F45 launched in 2011 with Wahlberg, who owns more than 30 percent of the company, as chief brand officer. Beckham, who became friends with Wahlberg when he and Victoria moved to LA in 2012, and former golfer Greg Norman jointly sued F45 Training in late 2022, but a judge ordered them to separate their lawsuits.
