Brooklyn Beckham ‘doesn’t expect special treatment’ at university
Brooklyn Beckham doesn’t expect any "special treatment" when he attends Parsons School of Design in New York City later this year.
The 18-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham is moving 3,000 miles away from his family to study photography at the academic institution in Greenwich Village – but he doesn’t expect to receive any special favors because of his famous parents.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Brooklyn will head to Parsons in September where he will become an undergraduate. But he won’t be expecting any special treatment just because he’s the son of the Beckhams.
"He follows in the footsteps of huge fashion names including Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang and Nicky Hilton, so he is under a lot of pressure to prove himself. It’s a big move."
Meanwhile, an insider recently claimed that Brooklyn isn’t especially nervous about moving away from home, because he already enjoys a certain degree of independence from his parents.
The source explained: "Brooklyn is already pretty independent so he has few qualms about living away from his family.
"He’s obviously going to miss them all but he’s ready for his next adventure.
"If he wants to achieve his dream job full time, having the extra learning behind him will be such an asset."
And before heading to New York later this year, Brooklyn will reportedly spend the summer working for his mother.
The 42-year-old fashion designer is keen for Brooklyn to join the team at her eponymous label and has created a role especially for him.
A source shared: "When he finishes this summer at his college in North London, he’s going to work for Victoria.
"She thinks he has a fantastic eye for fashion and is very talented – he’ll have a creative/photography type role. Victoria is in the process of securing a new office in West London – she wants to open more shops, with New York being the next location, and she wants Brooklyn to be involved."
