Ulrika Jonsson has confessed she felt “uneasy” about Cruz Beckham’s “provocative” pictures as the 17-year-old shared his debut photoshoot online.
The youngest son of David and Victoria – who was 16 at the time of the shoot – has become the new face of i-D magazine this month as the budding musician appeared on the cover of the magazine’s spring edition.
In the snaps, the teen was seen stripping down to his underwear with his wide array of tattoos on display as he posed for the camera.
It is understood that the racy shoot is a touching tribute to the former footballer’s topless shoot with 2000 Arena Homme Plus when he was 25.
Now, the Celebs Go Dating star has spoken out about how the snaps “blatantly sexualise” the minor for her latest column in The Sun.
She wrote: “At the time of the shoot, he was 16. He’s since turned 17 but I can’t help feeling a bit uneasy about the images.
“Firstly, it feels like he’s still a child and the pictures blatantly sexualise him. Manipulated and stylised they are sorely lacking in personality.”
The 54-year-old model went on to brand the shoot “sad and desperate” as the prospective musician opened up about his dreams of making it big in the industry.
“I feel for all the real musicians and songwriters out there who would kill for a magazine cover like that,” she added.
“Cruz may have got our attention but he’s yet to earn our respect.”
Cruz was pictured topless wearing nothing but a pair of white boxers as his dark denim jeans wrapped around his ankles for ‘The Out Of Body’ issue.
The Justin Bieber superfan sported bright pink hair which had slightly grown out from his winter buzz cut.
He made sure to put his edgy stamp on the shoot as he accessorised his barely-there ensemble with a series of layered silver chain necklaces which complemented his grungy silver rings and matching silver grill.
And it seems that Ulrika wasn’t the only one who had concerns for the “disturbing” shoot as fans of the famous family raised the alarm on Monday evening after they took to Twitter with similar complaints online.
One user wrote: “There are several things disturbingly inappropriate about Cruz Beckham’s i_D magazine shoot.”
Another agreed: “I can’t be the only one uncomfortable with 17-year-old Cruz Beckham thirst trapping and stripping to his boxers and showing off abs for a mag from cover?”
While a third person pointed out: “Are we all going to pretend that Cruz Beckham posing in his underwear on a magazine as a sixteen-year-old is totally normal? If it was a sixteen-year-old girl …"
