David Beckham Slams Decision To Hand Katherine Jenkins OBE Raging She?s Given Gong After ?Taking Coke?
The former Manchester United star appears to admit his charitable work was a conscious effort to win an honour
DAVID Beckham raged when singer Katherine Jenkins was handed an OBE – questioning why she deserved it and referencing her previous drug use.
Explosive emails appear to show the football legend ranted: “Katherine Jenkins OBE for what? Singing at the rugby and going to see the troops plus taking coke. F***ing joke.”In one explosive email, David Beckham spoke of his disdain for other awards, saying: ‘unless it’s a knighthood f*** off’
Beckham was referencing the singer’s confession to taking cocaine in the past.
He wrote the furious email to his long-time PR man Simon Oliveira after missing out on a knighthood in 2013.
It is one of a number of damning emails which reveal he appeared to use charity work as part of a desperate campaign to win a knighthood.
