The Katherine Jenkins, David Beckham affair rumours have been quashed by the Welsh opera singer herself. She has defended herself against claims that she has been having an affair with the footballer. Jenkins, who separated from her fiance Gethin Jones last year - posted a series of messages on Twitter to explain her side of the story. The messages, posted on August 24, 2012, read "Dear Twitter friends, I've read some horrible rumours on here [and] want u 2 know I absolutely deny I've had an affair with David Beckham. The rumours are very hurtful, untrue [and] my lawyers tell me actionable. I've only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 [and] on a night out in the West End in Feb 2012. We were out in a group of friends [and] 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."
Jenkins has decided not to dwell on the matter and instead returned to tweeting about her daily routine and work life. A spokesperson for Jenkins confirmed her claims to the Press Association and Beckham's own spokesman dismissed the claims as pure rumour: "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."
David, of course, is very much married to Victoria Beckham, the fashion designer and former Spice Girl. According to Marie Claire, Jenkins has been receiving death threats "for months" over the rumours, hence deciding to speak out.
