The Love In This Club singer, who is good friends with David and his wife Victoria, and says the couple are popular among Hollywood’s elite because they are so genuine.

He said: “It’s because they’re real people. Every time I see David, he’s so chilled. He’s the epitome of cool.

“We talk more on text than anything, but I ran into David in Beverly Hills the other day while he was with his sons. I understand that Brooklyn is a great break-dancer and I look forward to doing something like that with my own son.”

However, the R’n’B star – who is in talks with Justin Timberlake about releasing a record together – has no plans to invite the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer star to sing on one of his albums.

He added: “He’s one of the coolest white boys I know, but David really doesn’t sing.”
