Brooklyn Beckham is getting absolutely fried for claiming his career as a social media “chef” afforded him his luxury sports car.
A viral TikToker recently caught up with the oldest son of multi-millionaires David and Victoria Beckham while the newlywed was out cruising around Beverly Hills in his red McLaren P1, reports the New York Post.
Daniel Mac, who films himself asking random drivers of pricey vehicles how they pay for them, excitedly grilled Brooklyn, who frequently posts videos of himself cooking various dishes at home.
“Hey, man! What do you do for a living? Your car’s awesome!” asked Mac, who wrote atop the clip that the car costs a whopping $US1.2 million ($A1.7 million).
“Um, I’m a chef,” the smiling 23-year-old replied after realising he recognised the influencer.
“You’re a chef! Really? Are you like the best chef in the world?” Mac asked, prompting Brooklyn to respond, “Tryna be!”
When the TikToker inquired about his “chef name,” the husband of heiress Nicola Peltz simply said, “My name’s Brooklyn.”
As for what advice he’d give to those trying to venture into the culinary world, he encouraged, “Just follow your passion. Whatever makes you happy, just keep doing it!”
As if Mac’s tone weren’t facetious enough, the barrage of comments left under his post were dripping in sarcasm.
“‘What do you do for a living?’ ‘My parents are rich so I just kinda vibe,’” one person wrote in reference to Brooklyn’s legendary soccer star dad and pop star-turned-fashion designer mum.
“‘What do you do for a living?’ ‘I was born,’” someone else similarly joked, as another remarked, “Born into a multi-millionaire family and now married a billionaires’ daughter. But he’s a chef!!”
“Not him pretending being a chef got him that car … Brooklyn, please,” someone else quipped, while another pointed out that he’s likely “never worked a shift in a restaurant in his life.”
A few noted that Brooklyn seems to have “a different career every other year,” but many were quick to defend him with comments like, “He genuinely seems like a nice guy who isn’t harming anyone, and yet people have to comment that he’s only where he is because of dad?”
Others also praised Brooklyn for being “so humble” and not telling Mac who he was.
Brooklyn has also been in the middle of a cold war between his famous mother and his new wife, as Page Six previously reported.
“[Victoria and Nicola] can’t stand each other and don’t talk,” a source close to the family told us earlier this month. “The build-up to the wedding was horrendous.”
Another insider told us that the feud goes beyond just the two women and is more deeply spread within the two families coming together.
