AceShowbiz - Does Ashley Roberts have her eyes on much younger Brooklyn Beckham? Rumor has it, the 35-year-old former member of The Pussycat Dolls was "openly flirting" with the model son of David Beckham and Victoria Adams at a BRITs after-party despite their 18-year-age difference.
The Sun was the first to report that Ashley got to have a conversation with Brooklyn after she asked her agent to make introduction at the Warner Music and Ciroc party on Wednesday, February 22. She was said to have been looking cozy with the 17-year-old model and even trying to get him to dance.
"Brooklyn was sat at a table with Emma [Victoria's ex-Spice Girls bandmate Emma Bunton], Holly Willoughby, Christine Bleakley and Frank Lampard, but didn't look like he was having much fun until Ashley approached," revealed an onlooker.
The pop singer was allegedly "very keen to get to know Brooklyn so asked her agent to introduce her to him." According to the onlooker, "He jumped out of his seat to talk to her and they chatted for over 30 minutes as Ashley tried to get Brooklyn to dance by showing him some of her moves."
Despite wearing a sling to support his arm after having a skiing accident, Brooklyn was allegedly having a good time with Ashley that night. As claimed by the eyewitness, "at one point Ashley was mouthing the lyrics of the song playing to Brooklyn, who by this time had a huge smile on his face."
Ashley shot to fame with The Pussycat Dolls alongside "The X-Factor" judge Nicole Scherzinger, before the girl band was disbanded in 2010. She was runner-up on "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" in 2012. She became a co-host on "Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway" in the following year.
