Meet David Beckham's penniless nephew

By: Mirror

A hard-up teenage nephew of David Beckham today tells of his heartache at being cast adrift from the superstar’s family.

Freddie Every, 17, who lives with his struggling father in squalid temporary housing tells how he grew up playing with his cousins at Posh and Becks’ home and idolised his famous uncle.

But when his dad Colin, 50, and David’s elder sister Lynne split up after 11 years of marriage in 2010 everything changed and their lives went in totally different directions.

Now jobless Freddie is taking a bricklaying course to make ends meet while watching old playmate Brooklyn, 19, living the high life.

And while his mum and younger brother Josh, 13, live in a £470,000 (Sh62 million) home his dad claims was bought for them by Becks, Freddie and his old man live on benefits in a one-bedroom flat on a council estate.

Now the shy lad is making a moving bid to get back in touch with the extended family that meant so much to him in childhood.

“I’m filled with mixed emotions,” he says. “I just want to be able to go for a meal and talk and catch up. I’m not asking for more than that.

“Growing up we saw them loads and I have so many happy memories of playing at their house, doing Easter egg hunts and playing on quad bikes.

“Then suddenly it all stopped and I am on the outside looking in, only seeing them live their lives on Instagram or on the TV.

“We have so much in common still. I love football and am into fashion too – but I never get to share that with them”.

The teen looks embarrassed and saddened as he tells how his prized possession is a pair of £200 (Sh26,000) Yeezy trainers David once sent him as a late Christmas present.

At just 21 months younger than Brooklyn, his life couldn’t be more different.

Brooklyn is a millionaire in his own right, modelling for Burberry, recently releasing a book of his photography and snapping models like Cara Delevingne.

While he motors around London’s West End in a £35,000 (Sh4.6 million) SWB series 3 Land Rover, Freddie pedals around the East End on a dilapidated mountain bike because he can’t afford driving lessons.

Freddie’s first job at 14 was on a noodle stall at Romford Market, taking home £50(Sh6,600) a week.

Freddie admits it’s difficult seeing the cousins he knew including Romeo, 15, and Cruz, 13, flaunt their superstar lifestyle online while he and his dad, living on government handouts of about £75 a week, swallow their pride and scour supermarket bargain bins up to three times a day for reduced items to put food on the table in their flat.

Downcast Freddie says: “I think about the difference in our lives sometimes, but it’s hard to explain. Their lives are hard to imagine.

“I don’t really like seeing it but it is what it is at the end of the day. They are still my family and I’d like to see them again.”

After the split an informal agreement saw Colin ...
