Los Angeles: Opera singer Katherine Jenkins is fuming over rumours that she was ever in an affair with soccer ace David Beckham.

The 32-year-old took to Twitter for her outburst, and wrote: "Dear Twitter friends, I`ve read some horrible rumours on here and want you to know I absolutely deny I`ve had an affair with David Beckham."

"The rumours are very hurtful, untrue and my lawyers tell me actionable. I`ve only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 and 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," added Jenkins, reports a website.

Jenkins had split from TV presenter fiance Gethin Jones in December.

A spokesman for Beckham also denied the buzz, saying: "We have to deal with this type of nonsense all the time on Twitter. One minute David is dead, then you have to deal with more scurrilous rumours. There`s not one jot of truth to any of it."
