LONDON: Victoria Beckham is keen to use her experience in the music industry to manager her son Cruz’s pop career but her husband David is keen for Scooter Braun to take on the role. The former Spice Girls singer is keen to ensure 11-year-old Cruz Beckham doesn’t fall victim to the pitfalls of fame and thinks her own experiences make her the perfect person to manage the aspiring singer, though her husband David Beckham is worried she is already too busy with her fashion empire.
A source said: ‘’Victoria is adamant she needs to be Cruz’s manager and says it’s a no brainer given she has the vital experience from being in the industry for so long and knowing the mechanics of how it works. ‘’David thinks it is too much and doesn’t know how she’ll have the time to give Cruz the attention he needs. But she insists she’ll do whatever it takes and make sacrifices if need be to ensure she’s there to guide him.’’ Instead, the retired soccer star – who also has Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, and Harper, five, with Victoria – thinks Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun would be the ideal person to help Cruz achieve musical success.
The source added to Closer magazine: ‘’David thinks someone like Scooter would be far better suited given his experience managing Justin as a child star and having so many connections in the industry, which Victoria doesn’t have after being out of the game for so long. ‘’But Victoria is upset David won’t back her on this and it’s causing tension with neither of them wanting to back down. Like any parents, they both want the best when it comes to their children.’’ ‘X Factor’ boss Simon Cowell has previously expressed an interest in signing Cruz to his Syco label after seeing his online performance videos. He said: ‘’Get him in and we’ll sign him.’’
