Kanye Wants Cruz Control
The music producer is keen to take David and Victoria's son under his wing
He may be a bit of a self-adoring nitwit, but one thing Kanye West certainly knows about is how to make a hit record. With over 100 singles produced, and counting, Kanye has made stars out of John Legend, Rihanna and Big Sean, and Cruz Beckham is next on his list.
The All Day rapper has been impressed by videos posted on social media by Victoria and David Beckham of their talented youngest son’s singing, and told the retired soccer star he has what it takes to guide the 11-year-old to stardom when they met up at an LA Lakers game in Los Angeles earlier this month. A source said: “After David and Kanye met up at the match, Kanye said he’d love to manage Cruz. He thinks he’s a real talent and has the family connections to be a huge star.”
Kanye Keeps it Clean
Kanye is so serious about being a full-time mentor to Cruz, he also pushed through a plea to have a clash from his criminal record removed. The Gold Digger hitmaker pleaded no contest to misdemeanour battery in March 2014 for allegedly punching paparazzo Daniel Ramos and wrestling his camera from his hands at Los Angeles International Airport in 2013. Kanye was placed on probation for two years, ordered to serve 250 hours of community service, attend anger-management classes, and stay away from Ramos. He recently filed legal papers asking the judge overseeing his case to wipe the bust-up from his record, after completing his community service sentence by holding talks at the Los Angeles Trade Technical College and staying out of legal trouble during his probation period. Kanye’s request has been granted, and the judge has officially removed the case from his criminal slate, so Mr West believes he’s now a positive role model for young Cruz.
Cruz is the new Biebs
However, the Beckhams are said to be meeting with a number of music industry executives before making any decisions over the youngster’s musical future, though Kanye, who has children North, two, and Saint, five months, with wife Kim Kardashian West, is currently at the top of their list. The source added to Closer magazine: “They are keen to support Cruz and think Kanye may be the one to make him a superstar.” It was previously claimed David and Victoria, who are also parents to Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 13, and Harper, four, see Cruz as the new Biebs. A source said: “David and Victoria are grooming their very own Justin Bieber. They’ve high hopes for Cruz making a foray into the pop world, and wanted to showcase his talents with that adorable video online for the world to see.”
