Victoria Beckham might still be riding high off her Olympics reunion with her fellow Spice Girls, but she's headed for a crash in the form of nasty Twitter rumors circulating about her husband, David Beckham.
Beckham was forced to speak out today after allegations surfaced that he had an affair with Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins, best known on this side of the pond as runner-up in season 14 of "Dancing With the Stars."
A spokesman for Beckham tells E! News, "Unfortunately, we have to deal with this type of nonsense on Twitter. One minute David is dead, then the more scurrilous rumors, there is no truth to any of it."
U.S. & World
Jenkins herself took to her Twitter to squash the gossip, writing, "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."
Translation: Stop spreadin' 'em or you might get more than just a pointed @reply.
"I've only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 & on a night out in the West End in Feb 2012," Katherine continued. "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."
So there it is: No hashtags required.
