David Beckham has reportedly told his son Brooklyn to distance himself from his girlfriend, Hana Cross, following a slew of public arguments between the pair.
The 44-year-old football star is said to have asked the 20-year-old, whom he has with his wife Victoria, to have some space from Hana, 22, thanks to their constant bickering - the latest of which took place at Cannes Film Festival two weeks ago.
A source told The Sun newspaper: 'David's got a tight bond with Brooklyn and it's been worrying for him and Victoria to watch him arguing with Hana.
'They've been so up and down these past few weeks and David wants Brooklyn to have a serious think about whether he's got a future with her.'
David - who also has Romeo, 16, Cruz, 14, and Harper, seven, with the fashion designer - has also asked Brooklyn to stop bringing Hana along to family events.
The family spent last week in Miami, but there was no sign of Hana in any of the snaps uploaded to social media during the trip.
The insider explained: 'David has asked Brooklyn to spend more time with them all in a bid to get inside his head and help him.

'He knows that young love can be tough but he doesn't want these public slanging matches to become a regular theme.
'Rather than interfering he's trying to play it cool and just give Brooklyn some advice. But it seems pretty clear to everyone around him that David isn't Hana's biggest fan right now.'
Brooklyn began dating Hana in December but, since then, they have split numerous times and hit the headlines thanks to their tumultuous relationship.
Security guards were reportedly forced to separate them after she 'lashed out' at him at Cannes.
They were said to be enjoying a champagne-filled lunch at the lavish Hotel Martinez in the French resort when the argument broke out.
During the boozy lunch at the hotel, Hana is believed to have challenged Brooklyn, which led to them both 'screaming and crying' during another public spat.
An insider close to Hana told the publication: 'They had had a couple of drinks and started trading insults. They are both still young, so of course everything is very impassioned at that age.'
'Hana confronted Brooklyn and lashed out, and security waded in. David and Victoria were contacted and made aware of the incident.
'Not surprisingly, they are seriously worried about the couple's toxic relationship and frustrated by all this humiliating public drama.'
The source added that the root of the couple's arguments seems to centre around Brooklyn's prolific image as a Beckham while he reportedly gets jealous easily.
