Katherine Jenkins yesterday took to her Twitter page to blast rumours that she had an affair with David Beckham.
The 32-year-old singer told her fans that she found the reports 'hurtful and untrue', and wanted to be the first to set the record straight.
It is unclear why Katherine chose today to refer to the revelations, but in doing so she drew many people's attention to the rumours they had previously not been aware of.
Katherine began: '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.'
She continued: 'I’ve only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 & on a night out in the West End in Feb 2012
Meanwhile, a representative for Beckham has told the MailOnline: 'Unfortunately, we have to deal with this type of nonsense on Twitter.
'One minute David is dead... then a more scurrilous rumour, there is not one jot of truth to any of it.'
The untrue rumours surrounding Katherine and David first emerged when she moved to Los Angeles to appear on Dancing With The Stars earlier this year.
There were even extraordinary claims that a superinjuction had been applied for to prevent the story ever being made public.
Shortly after Katherine's tweets, Lily Cooper took to her Twitter page to poke fun at the revelations, denying an 'affair' with Beyoncé's husband Jay-Z.
