Legendary singer SIR Elton John has leapt to the defence of his friend
David Beckham, after British glamour model JORDAN claimed she'd slept with
The 56-year-old star blasts Jordan, real name Katie Price, as a
"self-promoting liar" and says the soccer superstar is "really f***ed off" with
her comments on British reality TV show I'm a celebrity... GET ME OUT OF HERE!,
which Jordan claimed
she would detail in her forthcoming autobiography.
Last week (ends13FEB04) she backtracked to confess she never spent the
night with Beckham, but claims they did share an "electric moment" in a London
nightclub when the Real Madrid player walked past her and brushed her arm.
But Elton says, "I've spoken to David and he is really f***ed off. He
doesn't usually let things like this get to him but he's furious.
"The whole idea that David Beckham would have anything to do with someone
like Jordan is a ridiculous joke. It's all lies.
"David told he's only met her once and he was with (wife) VICTORIA at the
time. It's just nonsense.
"She was just trying to promote herself and her book. But it's not fair
dragging someone else's name through the mud."
