Katherine Jenkins Clears Up Record Label ‘Diva Demands’ Rumours

The singer has issued a statement on stories claiming she had been dropped by the Warner Music Group

Katherine Jenkins has denied being sensationally dropped by her record label after a string of ‘diva demands’.

Reports surfacing this morning claimed that the British opera singer had asked for a budget of up to £1,500 a day to spend on make-up, hair and fashion styling during live concerts and promotional events, which combined with poor album sales pushed the Warner Music Group to severe ties with the songstress.

The stories also said that Katherine, who signed the biggest classical recording deal in history when she agreed to a three album contract with the label in 2008 worth a cool £5.8million, had lost the company over £2million due to a slump in music sales.

But the singer took to her Twitter account this morning to set the record straight. She tweeted: ‘Dear friends and fans, yes I can confirm that I’m moving record label as I have reached the end of my three album deal with Warners. I’m super-excited about where I’m going next but am currently sworn to secrecy.’

She added: ‘You will of course be the first to know as soon as I can say! This is a happy time for me personally and as an artist, so please do not be concerned by nonsense reports in the press. Love you all xxx.’

A spokesperson for the 32-year-old also made a statement last night, reaffirming that she was in the process of switching labels. They said: ‘Katherine is looking at options at the moment, details of which will be announced soon.’
