Rumors have surfaced on Twitter that soccer star David Beckham, who is married to former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, and opera singer Katherine Jenkins had an affair.
A rep for Beckham issued a statement to E! News addressing the rumors. "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 stated.
The Welsh singer took to Twitter first, posting a series of messages and claiming that she has only met Beckham twice. “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,” she tweeted. “The rumours are very hurtful, untrue&my lawyers tell me actionable.”
The 32-year-old mezzo-soprano was subjected to replies from users saying they would "cut" her if the rumours turned out to be true, with one account tweeting "'I'll kill that s*** Katherine Jenkins". Katherine Jenkins has contacted police and the threats and associated accounts are now said to be being investigated.
