David Beckham dropped everything last week to fly to Canada and comfort wife Victoria.
The Spice Girls tour is said to have been stressful for Posh, 33 - so she called Becks, 32, to cheer her up.
But within a few hours, David was off again, leaving Victoria upset.
He had to take sons Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 5, and 2-year-old Cruz back to LA as they prepare to return to school.
'She is devastated she won't see David or the kids for weeks,' a source says.
'She was very upset when they left. She is counting down the days until the end. It has been tough. She and David had a great time while the band were performing in England but now he is back in America things have got a lot more complicated for them.'
Victoria's homesickness is reported to have been behind the Spice Girls' decision to cut their comeback tour short.
'Victoria is looking forward to it finishing,' a source tells The People.
'She was pretty distraught. She complained to David that the tour has got too much for her. She is a family woman and would rather be at home with her children.'
