Victoria Beckham has reportedly annoyed the management of the celeb-favourite Chateau Marmont hotel with her paparazzi-courting behaviour.

A source told the New York Daily News: “She always lets the paparazzi know when she’ll be arriving. The Chateau Marmont tries to give celebs their privacy, and they hate her there. They like David, though.”

The biggest worry of the management is that having the paparazzi around will discourage other celebrities from frequenting the hotel’s restaurant and bar. The source went on: “Britney Spears turned up at the Chateau and the only table available was the one next to Posh.”

“But Britney didn’t want to sit next to her, so she and her friend stormed off to Il Sole instead.”
