Katherine Jenkins hit Twitter on Friday morning, lashing out at what she called “horrible rumors” of an alleged affair with soccer star David Beckham.
“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 “Dancing with the Stars” Season 14 finalist wrote.
“The rumours are very hurtful, untrue & my lawyers tell me actionable,” she continued.
The Welsh classical singer explained that her only interaction with Becks, of late, was during an outing with pals.
“We were out in a group of friends & it was just a normal fun evening out,” she Tweeted. “Just so we are clear I have never been on my own with him and never arranged to meet up.”
A rep for the soccer star also shot down the rumor in a statement to Access Hollywood.
“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,” the rep said.
The rumors started when a phony magazine cover hit Twitter, suggesting David left his wife, Victoria, and set off a flurry of Tweets, according to the UK’s Telegraph newspaper.
