Denying that she had an affair with David Beckham has led to Katherine Jenkins receiving death threats via Twitter. And the backlash has been so scary that the Welsh singer has had to call in the police.
Katherine took to Twitter to deny she had ever been romantically involved with Victoria Beckham's football star hubby. Soon after, she had to endure abuse from fellow users who threatened to kill her.
A spokesperson for the star told The Sun, "Due to the serious nature of the threats, the tweets have been reported to the police."
One message read: "Honestly, and you all said my dislike of Katherine Jenkins was irrational (it is, and that b**** is getting cut if David and Posh split)."
Katherine insists she has only met Los Angeles Galaxy star David twice and attempted to put a stop to the speculation in a series of posts on Twitter on Friday.
In the messages, she wrote, "Dear Twitter friends, I've read some horrible rumours on here & want u 2 (you to) 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've never been on my own with him and never arranged to meet up."
After that initial clarification, the 32-year-old singer appeared to have relaxed. She posted later, "Back to work #HappySaturday", accompanied with a picture of herself smiling while sitting on a stool in a recording studio.
