Welsh opera star Katherine Jenkins has taken to Twitter to rubbish claims she had an affair with David Beckham.
The 32-year-old singer hit back in reaction to rumours linking her to the footballer, saying: "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."
Jenkins, who split from TV presenter fiance Gethin Jones last year, went on to state that she has only met Beckham 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 added.
A spokesman for the singer confirmed her statement, while the footballer’s spokesman said there was not a "jot of truth" in the online gossip.
"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."
