A VERY interesting picture that he posted on social media – and deleted within seconds – suggests the teenager has been inked.
His father David Beckham is famously covered in tattoos, and it seems his eldest son Brooklyn, 16, might have gone under the needle as well.
The teenager posted a selfie to his Instagram account recently which appears to show a flash of ink hidden beneath his jumper.
Mysteriously, the picture was taken down within seconds – but not before UK newspaper The Sun managed to discover it.
The Sun also questions whether Brooklyn is at risk of growing up too fast.
He celebrated late into the night last week at two different BRIT Awards after parties in London, where it’s claimed he was seen “downing what appeared to be cocktails”.
The event was on a Wednesday night, and Brooklyn is supposed to be studying for his A-levels.
A Beckham family insider insists, “Brooklyn is not on the party circuit. When Brooklyn goes to events, which is rare, he is accompanied by a minder. He’s a good kid and not going wild in London nightclubs.”
It’s more likely to be the secret tattoo that David and mum Victoria could find the most concerning though, which might explain why he so hastily deleted the image.
Victoria is currently having her tattoo collection painfully removed to be taken more seriously in the fashion world - a world that Brooklyn, too, is attempting to crack as a photographer.
Despite David’s numerous inkings, he’s publicly revealed he doesn’t want his children, also including Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and Harper, 4, to follow his lead.
“The boys have already said they’re having tattoos done,” David said in 2013. “And I said, ‘Well, be different. Don’t have any tattoos’.”
