While discussing the star's budding cooking career, Brooklyn's brief footballing stint at the youth club of Arsenal was brought up, and while he explained his father wasn't upset about him pulling out, he felt the pressures himself.

"My dad wasn’t sad, because he was like, I just want you to be happy. But of course, I was sad. It was my whole life since I was literally two," he told the magazine.
