If you haven’t heard already, Brooklyn Beckham is coming to Manila tomorrow for a book signing. Yes, besides being a celebrity in his own right, Brooklyn is also an author. His book “What I See” is “for teenagers, by a teenager, which gives Brooklyn’s fans broader insight into his world seen through his unique and creative perspective,” according to Francesca Dow, Managing Director of Penguin Random House Children’s, the book’s publisher.
Whether you’re a big fan of David and Victoria Beckham’s eldest child or you just heard of him recently, here are some fun facts you should know about the young celebrity.
He’s a Belieber
According to MSN, Brooklyn and his siblings are huge fans of pop star Justin Bieber. They met Justin at Teen Choice Awards back in 2011, and they even have a life-size standee of the singer at their Los Angeles mansion. We’re not sure if they still keep it around though.
He once had a part-time job in a coffee shop
Although he was born with a golden spoon thanks to his celebrity parents David and Victoria, Brooklyn craves independence and activities ordinary people do. In 2014, he worked for a coffee shop in west London to earn money for new trainers and other stuff he wanted to buy.
He loves skateboarding and photography
When he was younger, he seemed to be following the footsteps of his father David as he played football at Arsenal’s training academy. However, he seemed to have stopped pursuing a football career and now leans toward photography. He in fact shot a Burberry ad campaign in 2016. His book also showcases some of his photographs.
He’s been in an on-and-off relationship with actress Chloe Moretz
According to reports, Brooklyn’s relationship with Chloe began in 2014, although they never really directly addressed the dating rumors. A year after they’ve been seen out together, it seems the rumored couple broke up in 2015. Brooklyn was then spotted with another girl, French model Sonia Ben Ammar.
In 2016, Brooklyn and Chloe seemed to be back on again as they were spotted eating out together in January. By April 2016, they started posting sweet pics of them together in their respective Instagram accounts. And in May, Brooklyn finally set the record straight, regramming a photo of Chloe on his IG with the caption, “Late night take out with bae <3”
In September, however, breakup rumors once again surfaced, although the split didn’t seem to last long as they were spotted together once again in March last year. Fast forward to 2018 and they’re still going strong as the couple recently watched a football game together in London and packed on the PDA. Chloe is currently in the UK capital after spending a winter break with her family in the US.
