David Beckham Denies Affair With Welsh Singer Katherine Jenkins
Her almost victorious stint on Dancing with the Stars last season didn't quite prepare Katherine Jenkins, 32, for living under the harsh rays of the limelight, or at least being falsely connected to those who do — in this case, British soccer star David Beckham, 37, who was accused on Twitter last week of having an affair with Jenkins.
Both Jenkins and the camp for Beckham, who has been married to former Spice Girl and fashion designer Victoria Beckham, 38, for over thirteen years and has four children with her, have denied the rumors that anything ever happened between them.
"Unfortunately, we have to deal with this type of nonsense on Twitter. One minute David is dead, then the more scurrilous rumors, there is no truth to any of it," said a spokesman for Beckham, reports E! News.
Jenkins also posted a strongly worded denial on Twitter, though some are saying she went on a little long. “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," began Jenkins.
“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,” she wrote.
Even Victoria has reportedly chimed in on the Twitter fiasco. "Victoria understands why Katherine would want to defend herself against these allegations," a source told the U.K.'s DailyMail, adding, however, that Victoria continues to be "bemused by the whole thing."
