Flirty siren Rita Ora: Brooklyn Beckham took a real shine to me
BROOKLYN BECKHAM has denied he developed an ‘obsession’ with pop star Rita Ora when he was 18.
It came after the singer said the teenager ‘took a shining to her’ despite their nine-year age gap.
Fashion designer Victoria Beckham was said to be ‘furious’ after claims that Ora flirted with her eldest son as they texted each other in 2017.
A close friend of 28-year-old Rita told Metro last night: ‘They weren’t in a relationship but Brooklyn took a shining to her. She really respects David and Victoria and would never cross that line.
‘They were texting a lot but Brooklyn developed a bit of an obsession with her. So when she wouldn’t text back he would message her sister and friends to get hold of her. Nothing went on.’
However, a spokeswoman for Brooklyn, now 19, insisted the claim was ‘incorrect’.
But David’s pals also said last night there were ‘no issues’ between the couple and Ora.
It is particularly awkward for the ex-football star as Ora is also rumoured to have dated his best friend Dave Gardner in the past.
The Hot Right Now singer, who was pictured in a skimpy dress at a party in Chile on Saturday, had successfully managed to get back into the Beckhams’ good books after Posh, 44, found out that her son had ‘been snogging’ Ora.
Pictures have emerged of one of Rita and Brooklyn’s encounters at a table at the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill in May 2017. They were also together at the Serpentine Gallery party a month later.
David, 43, publicly signalled he would not hold anything against Rita when he partied with her at the British Fashion Awards in December. Ora had given Becks’s new £3million pub The Walmer Castle in Notting Hill, London, a major publicity boost when she was spotted drinking in full view outside it in October.
Becks also agreed to pose in an Adidas Originals advert with Ora last summer.
The singer has recently been linked to Emma Stone’s ex, former Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield. And Brooklyn posted a loved-up snap with his new girlfriend Hana Cross, 21, as the story emerged.
