'We're done with the drama': David Beckham 'reads the riot act' to son Brooklyn amid family feud
PARIS, FRANCE: The Beckhams have been lately making headlines due to a rift between Nicola Peltz and Victoria Beckham, which in turn has caused some tension between David Beckham and son Brooklyn Beckham. And now reports claim that David got a hold of Brooklyn and clarified that "we don't do that in this family," ending the discussion saying, "We are done with the drama." This comes as Brooklyn and Nicola join the rest of the family on September 29 to watch Victoria's show at Paris fashion week in an apparent show of unity.
A Daily Mail source said that David Beckham "read the riot act" to Brooklyn saying, "We don't do that in this family." "To read the riot act" means to warn a person that they will be punished if it happens again. The source continued, "I don't think David has ever lost his temper with Brooklyn or had cause to talk to him harshly, but that has now finally happened. He had it out with him and told him: 'We don't do this in our family – and you know that we don't do this in our family. What happens next is up to you, but we are done with the drama.'" The source explains that the football sensation was hurt by Peltz's Grazia Magazine interview where she accused her mother-in-law of "blanking" her and backing out of an agreement to make the gown at the last moment.
The source continued, "David was really appalled by the Grazia interview because it seemed to be washing the family dirty linen in public – and he said that [Brooklyn's brothers] Romeo and Cruz are also hurt by it. It was probably a shock as he's never done anything other than tell Brooklyn how much he adores him." Some family friends also commented on the boiling situation claiming that "What is being said is that Brooklyn has forgotten that he is a Beckham." People close to the Beckham family say that they have privately compared their weak family standing to the royal family and the issues Princes William and Harry face. They have also compared Peltz to Meghan Markle.
Peltz later attacked David and Victoria's parenting style later on in a conversation with Tatler Magazine. She talked about her husband's often career switches and said that he felt a lot of "pressure" to please other people, indirectly throwing shade at the power couple. Previously reports claimed that Victoria was hurt by the fact that Brooklyn drifted apart ever since his wedding in April. Peltz told Grazia magazine that she, along with her mother Claudia and stylist Leslie Fremar, was excited to wear a dress made by Victoria saying, "We connected to start designing the dress, and then a few days went by and I didn't hear anything. Victoria called my mom and said her atelier couldn't make it."
