Victoria Beckham has reportedly turned down Paris Hilton's offer of friendship.
The Spice Girl has just moved to Los Angeles with her soccer star husband David but isn't interested in the hotel heiress' party invitation.
Paris is reported to have said about Victoria: "We could be soulmates."
However, Victoria apparently told a friend: "Over my dead body!"
Sources claim Victoria - who counts Tom Cruise and his wife Katie Holmes and Jennifer Lopez among her good friends - believes being associated with Paris could have negative consequences for her.
Victoria - also known as Posh Spice - is keen to establish herself as a major Hollywood player and doesn't want Paris, who recently served time in jail, to interfere with that.
