Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham’s friendship has become “strained,” because of the singer’s new Hollywood friends, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

After becoming very close when Victoria moved to Los Angeles last year, Katie is now allegedly annoyed the Spice Girl is choosing to spend most of her time with new friends Eva Longoria and Kate Beckinsale.

A source close to the pair told Britain’s Star magazine: “Until recently, the Beckhams were bosom buddies with Katie and her husband Tom Cruise. But there is now a clear rift between them, and Victoria has made it clear that Eva and Kate are her new chief allies in Los Angeles.

“Tensions have been brewing ever since Katie took offence to everyone saying that because she’s changed her hair, lost weight and started dressing more glamorously, she was morphing into Posh. So she took a step back, and the girls’ friendship has cooled off significantly.”
