Maybe it’s sour grapes, maybe it’s forgetfulness, or maybe it’s a touch of sibling rivalry, but Brooklyn Beckham was oddly silent last week, as his youngest brother, Cruz Beckham finally unveiled his long-awaited stage debut.
On Monday, musician Cruz shared a short video on Instagram of himself performing on stage, telling his followers, “That was fun…”. I
n the clip, the 17-year-old – wearing an iconic Spice Girls t-shirt – leaps around with his band, with the video cutting off as he begins to sing into the microphone.

It follows persistent rumours of tension between Brooklyn, 23, and the rest of his family following his wedding to Nicola in April. Insiders claimed the former Spice Girl was too pushy with the planning, others said the newly-weds were upset by Victoria and David refusing to use their son’s new blended surname: Peltz-Beckham, while other sources said the fashion designer was upset Nicola hadn’t worn a VB dress.
Earlier this month, the 27-year-old shared a video of herself in tears on social media, saying, “We all have days where people make you feel bad and it’s okay to be hurt by it.”
But she later insisted in an interview, “Everyone gets along, which is good.”
She also shot down the wedding dress rumours, saying, “I was going to [wear a VB dress] and I really wanted to, and then a few months down the line, she realised that her atelier couldn't do it, so then I had to pick another dress.” Awks…
