David Beckham Confronted By Paparazzo After Leaving Son in Air-Conditioned Car
David Beckham was confronted by a paparazzi photographer on Thursday for leaving his 9-year-old son Cruz in the car as the athlete took an exercise class in Los Angeles.
Cruz apparently stayed in the SUV in a crowded parking lot while Beckham did an hour-long spin program in a nearby facility.
When the superstar soccer player eventually returned, the paparazzo accused Beckham of leaving his son “unattended,” and shouted, “Is that a good idea to leave the kids in the car like that?”
“The car’s on,” Beckham shot back. “The air conditioning’s on.”
(For the record, the high temperature in L.A. on Thursday was 79°.)
A rep for Beckham tells Gossip Cop that the photographer was “making these assertions to create a story when there isn’t one.”
“It is complete lunacy to insinuate David would leave his kids in the car like that,” the spokesperson tells us. “There was a nanny and air conditioning.”
Later that day, Beckham took Cruz and older son Brooklyn to the first-ever Kids’ Choice Sports Awards, where the family was hit with gold slime.
