The 15-year-old son of former England football captain David and ex-pop star Victoria joined the online social media network using the handle @brooklyn77B and immediately followed his rumoured girlfriend Chloe, thereby generating a lot of interest online and prompting further speculation among fans and the British media alike.
In fact, such was the immediate frenzy that Beckham Jr later deleted his account. Brooklyn amassed an 8000-plus strong following within moments of joining the network, but later took his name off, probably fearing questions from fans about his relationship with the American.
Though there is no official word yet on Brooklyn and Chloe's relationship, a few months ago, the actress had admitted to being his close friend on US TV show Watch What Happens Live.
While taking call-in questions, Chloe was asked by a female viewer if she and Brooklyn are more than friends. "That's a naughty question," Chloe said, before continuing, "I don't know. He's a very good guy and he's a good person. I enjoy hanging out with him."
The show's host Andy Cohen then asked if she simply didn't want to "put a label on it", to which she replied: "Maybe."
