“I`m a human being. Of course something like that would be hurtful,” Jenkins told Fabulous magazine.

London: Singer Katherine Jenkins has hit back at former footballer David Beckham over his comment that she didn`t deserve to be recognised by Order of the British Empire (OBE).

Jenkins says she felt hurt by Beckham`s comments, reports mirror.co.uk.

“I`m a human being. Of course something like that would be hurtful,” Jenkins told Fabulous magazine.

“But at the same time I`ve learned that when you`re famous sometimes you get dragged into things you shouldn`t be involved in. Sometimes people feel like they know you, but actually they know nothing about you,” she added.

Her comments come just weeks after hackers leaked Beckham`s emails and publicised them.

In one mail, he had written: “Katherine Jenkins OBE for what? Singing at the rugby and going to see the troops plus taking coke. F*****g joke.”
