Katherine Jenkins gets death threats over David Beckham affair rumors

david-beckham-katherine-jenkins-gi.jpgThings have gotten nasty on Twitter for singer Katherine Jenkins following rumors of an alleged affair between her and David Beckham. Jenkins took to the social media site on Friday (Aug. 24) to deny the affair in a series of detailed tweets.

"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 writes. "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."

Jenkins' rep tells E! News, "Katherine has endured months of abusive tweets and messages accusing her of having an affair with David Beckham. Some going as far as threatening her life. She simply felt that she could not deal with this any longer and so had to face these ridiculous rumors head on, which is why she had to speak out."

And Jenkins is doing a lot more than speaking out on the subject. The "Dancing with the Stars" alum has reported the alleged death threats to the police "who are taking the matter very seriously."
