David Beck­ham still hasn’t apol­o­gised, claims Kather­ine Jenk­ins

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - ALL THE GOSS -

Singer Kather­ine Jenk­ins says that re­tired foot­ball leg­end David Beck­ham still hasn’t apol­o­gised af­ter slam­ming her for “singing at the rugby and tak­ing coke” in leaked emails. The 38-year-old Welsh singer said she was “dis­ap­pointed” to see the com­ments al­legedly made by the for­mer foot­baller in leaked emails pub­lished in 2017, de­spite his team ve­he­mently deny­ing all ac­cu­sa­tions. This came af­ter it was al­leged that Beck­ham slammed Jenk­ins for re­ceiv­ing an OBE in an email to his PR man­ager, as he also lamented not re­ceiv­ing a knight­hood. Speak­ing about the shock com­ments Beck­ham made to­wards her, the singer ad­mit­ted she has no rea­son to feel any­thing but proud of her achieve­ments. The opera star was awarded an OBE in 2014, for ser­vices to var­i­ous char­i­ties and her jour­ney­ing to war zones to en­ter­tain the troops. “You’re just mind­ing your own busi­ness and you get caught up in this mas­sive storm. You just think, ‘Aw, I wasn’t do­ing any­thing.’ To get caught up in that wasn’t pleas­ant. I don’t know why, again, that was aimed at me.” When asked whether she was an­gry with Beck­ham for his al­leged com­ments, the singer added: “It’s ob­vi­ously dis­ap­point­ing. I’ve never heard any­thing from them about it.”
