The Welsh mezzo-soprano who claims to be an opera singer despite never having sung in an opera has supposedly called in the police to look into death threats she allegedly received after she posted Twitter denials of an affair with a celebrated footballer.
The reasons for her denials are obscure. Apparently, she was the subject of some fantasy tweets. So in order to maximise awareness of the celebrity non-affair, she issued several denials and gave the tabloid press a feeding frenzy.
First denial: 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.
Second: I’ve only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 & on a night out in the West End in Feb 2012.
Third: Just so we are clear I have never been on my own with him and never arranged to meet up.
Now she has given the red-tops a second paroxysm of mock fury with the ‘death threats’ allegation.
If this singer devoted a fraction of the time to her voice that she applies to her publicity, we might be persuaded to take her seriously.
In the meantime, we feel it is important that the public should know that no-one at Slipped Disc has ever slept with Katherine Jenkins. Never even considered it. Wouldn’t do it if she was served up pouting on a bed of leeks singing early Mahler songs. Out of the question.
Thank you. Now off to tweet that denial.
