Brooklyn Beckham's advice for Rocco Ritchie

Brooklyn Beckham's advice for Rocco Ritchie

Brooklyn Beckham is reportedly giving advice to Rocco Ritchie.

The 16-year-old model - who is the son of David and Victoria Beckham - is said to be like a "surrogate big brother" to Rocco, 15, who is currently in the middle of a custody battle between Madonna and Guy Ritchie.

A source told Now magazine: "The boys have been friends for years and Brooklyn's always acted like 
a surrogate big brother for Rocco, who idolises him in return."

Meanwhile, a source previously claimed that the row over custody is just a "power fight" between the 'Living for Love' hitmaker and the 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.' director.

They said: "This is far beyond a situation about Rocco - it's about a situation between Madonna and Guy. They don't have a good relationship; it's more of a power fight between them and if he can one-up her. This is the best way he can do it."

Whilst another insider added: "He wants Rocco to have the confidence he lacked growing up and thinks Madonna's stern parental style is counterproductive. The welfare of Rocco is Guy's priority."

Rocco is currently living in the United Kingdom with his father and wife Jacqui Ainsley.
