An Extreme Childhood

Written by James Oyedijo: While vacationing with his family at the Ritz-Carlton in Miami, Alex Goldberg got bored. So he snuck out. There was a pool party going on at the uber-hip Delano Hotel and Alex got in wearing sneakers, cargo shorts and a baggy t-shirt. In no time a crowd of women gathered around Alex. Jamie Foxx took notice and bought him a drink. Alex ended his night at Nobu, where he hung out with Venus and Serena Williams, while the paparazzi snapped pics. Alex was 12 at the time.

Alex Goldberg is far from your typical teen (he’s 14 now). The precocious Goldberg gets free gourmet meals, complimentary gear from Supreme and courtside Knicks tickets. The kid is cool with Jay-Z and Beyonce; not a bad life. When asked what he wants to do when he get older, he said, “I want to own Nike.”

The beauty of Alex’s fame is the fact he earned it the old-fashioned way: by being himself. He roams the streets of New York the way kids in the suburbs cruise the mall. Except Alex actually engages the adults in serious conversation. He’s curious about everything and interested in everyone.
