His famous parents might be worth £165million, but it seems Brooklyn Beckham is determined not to rely on them for spare cash.
Instead, the 15-year-old is learning the real value of money – by earning his own.
Daily Mail reports that Victoria and David Beckham’s eldest child has started a weekend job at a West London coffee shop where he is paid £2.68 an hour
Due to his age, he cannot work for more than seven hours a day and has to be given an hour’s break after four hours.
A member of staff, who did not want to be named, confirmed yesterday Brooklyn had worked a few shifts and ‘got on OK’ with other baristas.
News of his decision to make his own money and not sponge off his wealthy parents earned him praise as a good role model for other teenagers.
Another added: ‘Mad respect to Brooklyn Beckham for getting a job in a coffee shop and not just sponging off his dad.’
A source close to the family revealed Brooklyn would have been encouraged to take the job by his parents.
The Beckhams have three other children – Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two – and have spoken in the past about teaching their brood about hard work.
Last year Beckham, who has retired from football, said: ‘We try to lead by example, by showing them it’s important to work hard.
‘That’s one of the key things me and my wife have always done … We juggle everything around the family because our main priority is the children, simple as that, and it always will be, but being hardworking is the best thing you can show children.’
The coffee shop declined to comment.
