Bieber's manager defends Cruz Beckham charity single after Piers Morgan attack

Star manager Scooter Braun has defended Cruz Beckham – after the 11-year-old announced he was releasing a Christmas single.

David and Victoria Beckham’s son joined Capital FM to sing a verse from the track, If Everyday Was Christmas, which he is releasing for charity.

“It’s amazing. It’s two of my favourite things, singing and Christmas, and it’s amazing to put those together and the money is going to charity,” he told the station.

Cruz’s dad David, who also appeared in the FaceTime interview, said: “I’m really proud, he’s having fun, he’s enjoying it.”

But after Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan criticised the Beckhams for allowing their youngest son to release a single, Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter, who is said to have signed up the young Beckham, waded in.

“I say why don’t you go to school mate because you’re not famous, your parents are famous.. stop putting these kids into the public domain while simultaneously saying privacy…,” Piers said on Good Morning Britain, as he got out a “sick bucket”.

Scooter hit back on Twitter:

Cruz opened up about his parents as he played the game Mr and Mrs Beckham during the Capital interview.

Asked who was more likely to fall asleep on the sofa while watching TV, he replied: “Definitely my mum.”

Quizzed about who is more likely to say a naughty word, he added: “100% my mum.”

He said his singer turned fashion designer mother was also more likely to tell a bad joke.

Asked who takes the longest to get ready, he replied? “100% my mum. My dad takes about 10 minutes, my mum takes about 10 hours.”

But when quizzed on who is “more likely to embarrass you”, he added: “Definitely my dad.”
