Hello, mommy-issues! Seriously, folks, brace yourselves. The more you delve into the uncomfortably close relationship between former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, and her eldest son, Brooklyn Beckham, the more squeamish you'll become.

These feelings seem to be reciprocated by the 20-year-old photographer in the making. According to The Daily Mail, he seems to be working out some mommy-issues with the many beautiful women he's been linked to, including Chloe Grace Moretz, Lottie Moss, Rita Ora, and Nicola Peltz.
