Despite the hurt the claims have caused, the 38-year-old fashion designer “understands” that Jenkins would want to clear her name.“Victoria understands why Katherine would want to defend herself against these allegations,” the Daily Mail quoted a source as telling LOOK magazine.
Victoria is now said to be focusing her attention on ensuring her family are not dragged into a “soap opera” after Jenkins took to Twitter to deny the rumours.“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.
“The rumours are not true, but that doesn’t stop them being hurtful,” the source said.When Jenkins publicly denied the claims on her Twitter page last Thursday, she inadvertently drew many people’s attention to the rumours they had previously not been aware of.
“Dear Twitter friends, I’ve read some horrible rumours on here and want u 2 know I absolutely deny I’ve had an affair with David Beckham.The rumours are very hurtful, untrue and my lawyers tell me actionable."
“I’ve only met David twice: once at the Military Awards in 2010 and 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,” she wrote.
But the rumours seemed to have taken their toll on the Spice Girls singer.“I’m not going to lie, it was a really tough time. David and I got through it together,” she said later.
“No one said marriage was going to be easy. Yes, there have been bumps along the road.“But the fact is we’ve come out of everything we’ve been through stronger and happier,” she added.
