While a lot of David's fans rallied together to support him, he approached a newspaper to say "I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn maybe not. Brooklyn's 18, he might find that a little bit strange.

"But I'm very affectionate with the kids. It's how I was brought up and Victoria, and it's how we are with our children. We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we're very affectionate with them."
