Brooklyn Beckham and fiancée Nicola Peltz hold hands at Nobu

Brooklyn Beckham and fiancée Nicola Peltz put on a tender display when they were pictured leaving Nobu in Malibu on Wednesday after a romantic meal.

Their outing comes after Brooklyn, 21, was defended after being criticised for posted a now deleted Instagram photo in which he had his hand on Nicola's neck.

Brooklyn had stuck to a smart/casual dress code as he was pictured leaving the eatery wearing a dark jumper, smart indigo jeans and chunky boots.   

Nicola, 25, wore a plunging black trouser suit and heels, with the couple both sporting black face masks.

One fan wrote: '@Diana Nammi and her rant against Brooklyn Beckham is why sometimes causes get lost in the sauce.

In the snap, posted earlier this week, David Beckham's eldest son, 21, flashed his tattooed arms as he held the actress, 25, by the neck while drinking wine at dinner 

KWRO is a charity that campaigns against issues such as domestic violence, honour-based violence and forced marriage.
