Brooklyn Beckham’s ex: ‘He’s way too immature to be getting married’

beckham peltz5

Brooklyn Beckham has always dated girls and women older than him. Some guys are just like that. Brooklyn is currently 21 years old and engaged to Nicola Peltz, 24. That’s an age gap without a real difference in maturity level – a rich 24-year-old woman is probably comparably mature to a 21-year-old nepotism-photographer. But! One of Brooklyn’s exes, a 30-year-old named Lexy Panterra, thinks Brooklyn is still too immature to be engaged. She spoke to the Sun exclusively:

Brooklyn Beckham’s ex has told of her shock at his engagement to actress Nicola Peltz and warned: “He’s way too immature to be getting married”. US hip-hop artist Lexy Panterra, 30, who dated Posh and Becks’ son for 12 months, cast doubts on his plans to wed and said he “usually has a new chick every month”.

Lexy told how she first met Brooklyn at the Coachella festival in 2017, where she was performing with rapper Post Malone. She said he asked her if he could take a photo of them together and because they had a mutual friend she agreed. Lexy said: “I smiled for the camera and then walked away. He was this little boy fan and I didn’t know what he was doing there or who he was. Please don’t remind me how young he was back then. He was a baby and I wasn’t attracted to him at all. The next thing I know the photo is in a tabloid. I was like ‘oh it’s Brooklyn Beckham, Victoria Beckham’s son, that’s cool’. I think we set up a Facetime call sometime after that. We started hanging out and I think he followed me on Instagram.”

Lexy said her feelings for Brooklyn grew and she admired his passion for photography. She said: “I liked that side of him.” But after being spotted out on several nights out and at gigs together, the pair split up at the start of last year.

Lexy said: “Brooklyn does look kind of babyish and I think the way he dresses doesn’t do him any favours. I think he needs to work on his friendships. He has a lot of random friends that come and go. It would be better for him if they stuck around.”

Lexy, who is renowned for her raunchy twerk dancing in the US, said she and Brooklyn slowly “drifted apart”. She said: “We are not together any more because of his immature ways and him not being a good friend. I don’t want to say exactly why we split. I don’t want to bash him. The long distance thing was a factor for sure. It was a relationship that I could never take seriously, to be honest. The age gap was a big deal. You can tell immediately that he is a little immature. He was everything that you could imagine a young adult would be, at times a little bit more. Sometimes you just get fed up.”

Well, yeah. Of course there’s a maturity gap between a 19/20 year old guy and a 28/29 year old woman. When I was 28/29, I wanted nothing to do with guys nearly a decade younger for that very reason. Plus, it doesn’t even seem like they were really seriously dating? It sounds more like they were just hooking up sometimes, or friends with benefits. I don’t buy that they were in some deep relationship. Whatever. I doubt Brooklyn is the most mature guy in the world, but he’s not some dumb kid who can’t get it together.

    Does he work get published or is it for clients

  2. Lolo86lf says:

    I honestly think he is too young to be married no matter how old his wife is. I am not saying he is immature but come on what was the big rush?

    • VS says:

      I agree with you there………..why the rush? if this is real, they can date right; anyway their business
      They same could have been said about Aaron Taylor-Johnson but that marriage seems to be working; so maybe this one will as well! All the best to them

      • Lolo86lf says:

        A few weeks ago there was a post here discussing Aaron and Sam Taylor-Johnson and how their marriage has been so far successful. Some people commented that no matter how stable their marriage is she took advantage of his youth when they got married because was only 21 or 22 years old and she was 45 years old but I digress because that’s not the case with Brooklyn and Nicola.

      • VS says:

        I agree with you again, although I don’t understand what a 45 year old woman could have in common with a 21 year old man……….same thing if ages were reverse!

      • margie says:


        he was actually 18 and it was his first movie ever she was directing…..she was married with kids at the time

  3. minx says:

    Of course he’s too young.

    • Esmom says:

      Agreed. I know he ives in a different world than most average Joes and everyone is different but my sons are 21 and 19 and the idea of marriage is so far from their minds, never mind the actuality of it.

      I get when you’re in love at that age you might yearn to stay together forever with your love but I really don’t see any good reason to get hitched when your brain isn’t even fully developed yet.

  4. Who ARE These People? says:

    Of course he’s immature but she’s known for twerking so…

    • VS says:

      That’s a good one!

    • dewdrop says:

      i mean honestly, if i could twerk i would
      allllll the time. it’s truly hypnotic.

    • tammy says:

      exactly my thoughts.. She comes off as a little bitter also.

    • Katrine Troelsen says:

      Why are you dissing her for being a dancer?? Thats so weird.

      • VS says:

        The OP is not dismissing her dancing career; it is about what is claimed she is known for

      • BeanieBean says:

        I think that was snark, because the reporter in that quoted article thought it was important to the story to include that (it wasn’t).

    • wellokay says:

      I have to admit I am surprised to see a woman of almost 30 years use the word “babyish” to describe someone else as immature. All people mentioned in this post need more time to ripen. Put them on the window sill for a bit.

    • Yup, Me says:

      She isn’t known for anything, let alone twerking and given that twerking is a dance form specifically associated with African Americans and with strong ties to African dance forms (when it isn’t being associated with rhythmless white girls appropriating it), I’m wondering who (and what) your shit talking tone is directed at?

      • Jesma says:

        I think they mention twerking in the article because that is how she started. She started with twerking videos on YouTube/Insta and garnered over 2.5 million subscribers. Even though she is Persian and not black, those are big numbers. Her following helped her get into rap videos and get into the music industry I guess.

      • Strawberry says:

        She’s not white. She’s Iranian.

      • whitecat says:

        Iranians are not african-american and some consider themselves as white. Interesting the word “Aryan” has its roots in the word Iran.

  5. A says:

    Does he have a job? I know neither of them -need- to earn money but his college/internship/employment history kinda does make it seem like he hasn’t gotten it together yet. Which is fine! He’s rich and I’d imagine one of the joys of being rich is that you can float by until you find your passion or whatever.
    I don’t know why this woman thinks she’s involved at all though.

    • VS says:

      LOL… funny
      He can always become a model or jewelry designer

      • A says:

        lol Why not? Let them be influencers

        To be more serious, I hope they’re happy and have a good time together.

      • VS says:

        oh yeah I forgot about that option as well………not very common

        I shouldn’t laugh but you are so right about this….there are plenty like him in NY: socialites, models who have never modeled anything, jewelry designers or designers of something….

  6. Chaine says:

    He is immature, and he doesn’t seem to have it together. Luckily for him, he is a relatively attractive white guy with fabulously wealthy parents, so he will cruise through life on his privilege and daddy’s money while continuing to attract romantic partners and plaudits that have nothing to do with his actual talents or achievements, or shall I say, lack thereof.

    • minx says:

      You’re nicer than I am, I don’t think he’s attractive at all. Not ugly or anything, but…’s good he has rich parents.

  7. pottymouth pup says:

    of course he’s immature but this woman, who is 8-9 years older than he is, dated him for a year when he was 18

  8. Ariel says:

    It’s random but not having solid ride or die friends- just having acquaintances that come and go- is a red flag.
    Maybe it’s the age- done with school friends but hasn’t found his tribe as an adult.
    Lots of us drift.
    And easy to drift- and have hangers on with daddy’s giant bank account.

    He is a kid. Occasionally people who marry young work out. I wish them well.

  9. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    If you have to go to The Sun for your five minutes of fame, you’re thirsty and nothing but a flicker in the celeb world. She’s known for twerking? Lol that says all we need to know.

  10. Mireille says:

    Personally, I think 21 and 24 is too young to get married for any couple, but some people have gotten married at those ages and have made it work. So, could be the same for these two.

  11. Jess says:

    I find it so interesting that this Beckham boy has any fame/attention at all. His parents are both, undeniably, hard workers. Posh wasn’t ever the best singer or dancer or anything really, she just works really hard every day to be taken seriously in her field. And while David had natural talent, he still worked his butt off to be one of the best soccer players in the world. This kid must feel so adrift, ya know? What is your identify when you’ve had everything handed to you your whole life? Not that David and Victoria didn’t try to raise their children right (I think they did) but it’s unavoidable when the kids are surrounded by wealth and fame from such a young age. Marriage provides a feeling of security and a feeling that you’re a fully-fledged adult. Maybe he’s trying to create a separate identity from his parents in the easiest way possible? In any case, I don’t think it’s necessarily his age that’s the problem, it’s his lack of discipline and maturity. My husband and I got married at 21 (we’re 35 now and still happily married) and while I wouldn’t recommend it for most people, it was the right decision for us. I think it just depends on the individuals.

    • FrenchGirl says:

      Madonna said Lourdes was more talented naturally that her ( better singer,better dancer) but contraire to her at Lourdes’s âge,L was not ambitious ( It was her one default)

  12. Lila says:

    When your ex is making dumb decisions, it’s the time to shut your mouth and let their actions speak for themselves.

  13. S808 says:

    Uhhh you’re a decade older than him sis, ofc you think there’s a gap in maturity, cause there was. Consider not dating a kid next time.

    21 is too young to get married but Nicola is much closer to his age and maturity level. And again, they’re young and rich so they’ll be fine no matter what.

  14. Watson says:

    Immaturity is dating someone a decade younger, then being shocked by their immaturity…

    • Harper says:

      Right!? Why is this woman even commenting, and why are we paying her any attention!? It’s just trashy to talk about your ex’s new relationship in the first place. Add to that the ridiculousness of a grown woman slamming the college-aged kid she dated for being immature…just ridiculous.

  15. Boxy Lady says:

    Him wanting to be married young may simply be because his parents married and had him young. They’re still together so he doubt he sees any problem with it.

  16. Lara says:

    She didn’t really care who he was until she found out who his parents were? Sure he’s the immature one…

  17. ojulia123 says:

    When one’s ex gets engaged, the only thing to say [publically] is, “I wish them well.” Otherwise one ends up sounding bitter, jealous, and petty.

  18. Meg says:

    Wow so he’s unattractive, a bad dresser that makes him look less attractive, has bad friends, and is too immature. Anything else this woman couldvet criticized about him? Then she says she doesn’t want to bash him, too late!
    I doubt he’ll actually marry her, but Is she a bit jealous? Not sure why else you’d do this to a guy you just hooked up with long distance

  19. tcbc says:

    She seems to be saying he cheated without explicitly stating it.

  20. Mina_Esq says:

    She sounds bitter. It sounds like he didn’t want to get serious, and she did (but only after she found out that his parents are rich
    And famous). A guy that’s casually seeing you will not be interested in developing a friendship. It doesn’t mean that he is incapable of doing so with another person.

  21. Heather says:

    My hubby was 19 when we got together, and I was 22…that was 24 years ago. So, yes, it can work. Basically, we grew up together and not apart.
    BB’s ex is partly right; he wasn’t mature enough to settle down and marry…her. At 28/29 years old, her priorities are completely different than a person in their early 20′s. That doesn’t mean that he’s not mature enough for his fiancee.

  22. Michelle says:

    The ex-girlfriend sounds very salty.

  23. Shelley says:

    I think he’s really cute, and seems like a romantic kinda guy. If I were in his age group, I could definitely imagine myself being very interested in him.
