Katherine Jenkins denies rumours of affair with David Beckham
Friday 24 August 2012
Welsh opera star Katherine Jenkins has taken to social media to shoot down claims that she had an affair with David Beckham.
The 32-year-old singer hit back in reaction to internet rumours linking her to the footballer - and Beckham's spokesman said there was not a "jot of truth" in any of the online gossip.
Jenkins wrote on Twitter: "Dear Twitter friends, I've read some horrible rumours on here & want u 2 know I absolutely deny I've had an affair with David Beckham.
"The rumours are very hurtful, untrue & my lawyers tell me actionable."
A spokesman for the singer confirmed her statement.
Jenkins - who split from TV presenter fiance Gethin Jones last year - went on to state that she has only met Beckham twice.
She wrote: "I've only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 & on a night out in the West End in Feb 2012.
"We were out in a group of friends & it was just a normal fun evening out.
"Just so we are clear I have never been on my own with him and never arranged to meet up."
Beckham's spokesman said: "Unfortunately, we have to deal with this type of nonsense on Twitter. One minute David is dead, then more scurrilous rumours, there is not one jot of truth to any of it."
The 37-year-old footballer has been married to former Spice Girl and designer Victoria since 1999. They have four children together.
