London: Opera singer Katherine Jenkins is glad she nipped in the bud rumours that she was dating footballer David Beckham.
The rumours surfaced in August, and the 32-year-old Jenkins had reacted angrily then. She now says she is happy she did that.
Jenkins says she does not want people to have a negative perception about her.
"I didn`t want people to think I would date a married man. I wouldn`t want anyone to think I would do that to another woman," a website has quoted her as saying.
Beckham is married to former Spice Girl Victoria.
Jenkins reveals that she even got death threats. "I was getting death threats before I spoke about it. You wouldn`t believe how crazy and out of control it was getting," she said.
