Posh Spice bullied as a child

LONDON, Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Spice Girl Victoria Beckham says she was bullied viciously as a child, had no friends and felt she had little talent.

"You know, I've never been that good at anything, to be completely honest," Beckham told Elle Magazine, noting classmates chased her as a child and "used to pick up stones and hurl them towards my head. It was like they genuinely hated me, but I don't know why."

Beckham and the other Spice Girls are at the beginning of a worldwide reunion tour after taking seven years off to pursue separate careers, marry and have children. Beckham, known as "Posh Spice," is married to soccer star David Beckham, who now plays for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Speculation on the tour is that Beckham had her breast implants removed to reduce the risk she would fall out of her Roberto Cavalli-designed costumes during energetic dance routines, an tour insider told Britain's Daily Mail in a story published Sunday.
