It's taken four days, but Victoria Beckham has finally responded to those rumours about her husband David Beckham and songstress Katherine Jenkins...that Katherine seemed to start herself.
Katherine caused a stir when she took to Twitter to deny rumours of an affair last week, despite no-one actually hearing the rumours. In several messages, she told her "Twitter friends" that she "absolutely denied" an affair with the famous footballer. She went on to state that the rumours were not only untrue but hurtful, and actionable in law, before announcing that the pair had only met twice and were with friends.
The revelation finished; "Just so we are clear, I have never been on my own with him and never arranged to meet up."
David and Victoria remained quiet afterwards, while media outlets across the globe reported on Katherine's strange message. David's representatives later denied the affair too, joking that he was also often reported to be dead.
Victoria is said to be completely bemused by the rumours, but hurt that her sons could easily access them online, or hear about them from friends. With Brooklyn now thirteen, and Romeo nine, they are bound to start hearing more about their famous parents.
It's not the first time Victoria and David's 13-year-old marriage has been rocked. In 2004, Rebecca Loos claimed she'd had a four-month relationship with the footballer, before trying to launch a modelling career. At the time, David spoke out to deny the allegations, and stated that he "exists only for Victoria."
Victoria admitted at the time that it had affected them, but stated that they had come out of it stronger and happier. Since then, they've had two more children, including 13-month-old daughter Harper Seven.
With Victoria currently launching new fashion lines, and making a much-loved appearance at the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony with the Spice Girls, she should have enough to take her mind of the allegations. The only question left to answer seems to be - where did they come from in the first place?
