Victoria Beckham was said to be left “bemused” by Katherine Jenkins' decision to hit out on Twitter and deny that she was having an affair with the fashion designer's husband of 13 years David Beckham.
An enraged Katherine took to Twitter on Friday to deny rumours that had been floating around the social networking site and though Victoria is said to be “hurt” by the claims understood that the Welsh singer would want to clear her name.
A source told MailOnline: “Victoria understands why Katherine would want to defend herself against these allegations.”
But, according to the insider: “She is bemused by the whole thing.”
While Katherine clearly wanted to protect her reputation by denying the claims, it is Victoria's family, namely her four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and baby Harper that she is concerned about.
“Victoria and David have been through a lot and love each other. There's no way she'd let the family get dragged into a Twitter soap opera,” a source told LOOK magazine.
And while Victoria should be used to allegations about her family it hasn't made the latest round of rumours any easier.
The source claimed: “The rumours are not true, but that doesn't stop them being hurtful.”
The currently single star took to Twitter on Friday saying: “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."
She went on: ”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.”
Victoria and David have been married for 13 years.
