But David Beckham and his children rose above the backlash on Sunday as they pulled on their glad rags to support designer Victoria at her much-anticipated New York Fashion Week Show.
The former footballer, 41, appeared unfazed by his recent criticism as he left their hotel in the Big Apple to support his wife at her AW17 ready to wear showcase, with their four children in tow.
The former Real Madrid player looked typically suave as he wrapped up warm against the freezing temperatures in a smart black coat, ahead of the big event.
Heading out of the hotel with little Harper, five, in hand, David looked calm and collected as he headed to the show in a mark of unity for his wife - amid the recent email scandal that hit the family.
Wanting to impress as the family of the designer, the Beckham brood stylishly followed suit in equally fashionable outfits despite their younger ages.
