Katherine Jenkins took to her Twitter page to blast rumors that she had an affair with David Beckham.
Katherine Jenkins, 32, 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 the singer chose to refer to the revelations, but in doing so she drew many people’s attention to the rumors they had previously not been aware of.
In a series of posts made on her page yesterday, Katherine Jenkins said she had only ever met David Beckham twice.
She began: “Dear Twitter friends, I’ve read some horrible rumors on here & want u 2 know I absolutely deny I’ve had an affair with David Beckham.
“The rumors are very hurtful, untrue & my lawyers tell me actionable.”
Katherine Jenkins 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.
“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.”
Meanwhile, a representative for David Beckham has said: “Unfortunately, we have to deal with this type of nonsense on Twitter.
“One minute David is dead… then a more scurrilous rumor, there is not one jot of truth to any of it.”
As well as the awards event in 2010, Katherine Jenkins and David Backham were both seen partying at the Arts Club in Mayfair alongside Prince Harry in early February.
The untrue rumors surrounding Katherine Jenkins and David Beckham 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 Jenkins’ tweets, Lily Cooper took to her Twitter page to poke fun at the revelations, denying an “affair” with Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z.
Lily Cooper wrote: “I’m really upset at the hurtful rumors going round about me having an affair with Jay Z. My lawyers tell me they are actionable.
“I’ve met him twice, once at the spotted pig in New York and once at the wireless festival. We have never been alone together etc etc.”
Katherine Jenkins has been single since splitting from fiancé Gethin Jones in December 2011.
The singer started dating former Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones in 2007 after meeting him on the set of Strictly Come Dancing.
They became engaged on holiday in Mexico in February 2011, but announced their split on December 30 on Twitter.
Katherine Jenkins later said her singing was helping her cope with her heartbreak, saying: “With every performance I have been able to put myself slowly together.
“Unfortunately all my songs are about love or heartbreak but I can just about cope with that now.”
Earlier this week, David Beckham was seen enjoying a family day out with wife Victoria and three of their children, Romeo, Cruz and baby Harper, at a shopping mall in Los Angeles.
David and Victoria Beckham have been married for 13 years and are worth an estimated $195 million as a power couple.
Victoria Beckham gave birth to the couple’s fourth child and only daughter Harper Seven last July.
