No more Posh frocks for opera singer Katherine Jenkins
01:13 GMT, 9 September 2012
Victoria Beckham no longer wants Katherine Jenkins to wear her dresses after the glamorous opera singer’s bizarre denial of internet rumours that she had an affair with Victoria’s husband David.
Katherine, 32, took to Twitter to brand the claims as ‘untrue’ and ‘hurtful’ and claimed that she had only met David twice.
The tweets were deemed curious because, as many followers pointed out, most people were unaware of the rumours.

Friends say that Victoria, 38, was left fuming over the attention given to the story, which became front-page news.
The designer, whose eponymous clothing line is a favourite choice for A-listers including Cameron Diaz and Sarah Jessica Parker, has apparently removed Katherine from an ‘approved list’ of stars who receive her frocks.
‘Victoria’s dresses are some of the most sought- after in Hollywood but Katherine is no longer on the approval list,’ says a source.
‘If she wants a dress, she’ll have to go and buy it herself. There won’t be any favours from Victoria’s people.
‘Victoria is very discreet and certainly did not appreciate the gossip and rumours that started after Katherine’s tweet.’

Katherine, who was pictured in a Stella McCartney dress last week, wore one of Victoria’s frocks to the Classical Brit Awards last year.
She is said to have a number of dresses from Victoria’s new collection and has said of the designer: ‘I love Victoria. I’ve worn quite a few of her dresses because I think she understands women and knows how you want to feel.’

Last night a spokesman for the former Posh Spice declined to comment. Meanwhile, a source close to Katherine insisted: ‘As far as her stylist is aware, she has not been taken off the list.’
Meanwhile, Victoria can claim victory in a skirmish with Katie Holmes. She and Katie had both been scheduled to show their latest fashion designs today at New York Fashion Week.
But Katie, 33 – once best pals with Victoria before their friendship cooled off in recent years – became nervous of the head-to-head clash. The show for the film star’s label Holmes & Yang has now been pushed back to Wednesday.
Says a fashion insider: ‘She doesn’t want to tread on Victoria’s toes so she changed her date.’
