London - Victoria Beckham has been called skinny, gaunt, downcast, malnourished and moody in the last few days, as she promotes her fashion line both in the US and the UK.
But the LA Galaxy starās wife has had enough of the cruel jibes since arriving back in Britain three days ago, and has lashed out at her critics.
āLook, if people want to say Iām f***ing miserable then so be it,ā the Mirror quoted her as saying.
āIām really not. I have a lot on my plate. Iām not going to lie about it, Iām tired. Iām really tired but Iām also very happy with my life.
āIām basically just like any woman whoās working and has lots of children ā itās tough,ā she said.
The truth is that she is yet to enjoy a night of undisturbed sleep since giving birth to her daughter Harper seven months ago.
āIām not getting much sleep at all,ā reveals Victoria, who has been flitting between LA, London and New York due to her work as a fashion designer.
āHarperās not sleeping that great, and Iāve been taking Skype business calls throughout the night too because of the collections. Iām up with the baby as all mums are and I wouldnāt have it any other way.
āThereās not a team of people doing it for me.
āAnd then people want to say I look crap. Well, Iām a working mum, so give me a break.
The former Spice Girl has been working on her fashion line right after Harperās birth and has been busy with the launch of her collection.
āItās actually been crazy. I had Harper, I was working on the collection and I was straight back into it.
āI took a lot on board. Iām tired. You canāt look your best all the time.
āThe time difference has been a nightmare lately. Iām spending ludicrous amounts of time in my dressing gown on Skype talking to my team about the clothes,ā she said.
She is planning to take some time out now after she has debuted two new fashion collections to widespread critical acclaim.
āWell Iād like there to be a break but I very much doubt itās going to happen any time soon.
āWhen Harper sleeps that will be my break,ā she added.
