Katherine Jenkins denies having an affair with David Beckham

Popstar to Operastar mentor Katherine Jenkins has spoken out to deny that she has been having an affair with David Beckham.

The 32-year-old created widespread intrigue when she told her twitter followers that there is no truth in the rumours that she has been having a fling with the footballer.

Katherine tweeted: “I’ve read some horrible rumours on here & want u 2 know I absolutely deny I’ve had an affair with David Beckham.”

Jenkins, who has been single since her split from Gethin Jones last December, posted a series of tweets to hit out at the allegations.

Katherine wrote: “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.

“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.”

A spokesman for Beckham told The Sun: “We have to deal with this type of nonsense all the time on Twitter.

“One minute David is dead, then you have to deal with more scurrilous rumours. There’s not one jot of truth to any of it.”
