Last week, leaked emails from David Beckham rocked A LOT of people.

A staggering 18.6 million emails and documents were accessed containing three years’ worth of information relating to David.

And there was quite a bit in there that David isn’t proud of…

The emails suggest that he used his charity work as part of a campaign for a knighthood.

In one email he branded the Honours Committee "unappreciative c*nts".

He also and dismissed lower awards, ranting: “Unless it’s a knighthood f*ck off”.

He went on to brand Katherine Jenkins’ OBE a "f*cking joke".

It is reported that he wrote: "Katherine Jenkins OBE for what? Singing at the rugby and going to see the troops plus taking coke. F*cking joke."

While David has said that they were written "in the heat of the moment," Katherine’s manager – Professor Jonathan Shalit – has spoken out on her behalf.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: "I say Katherine was awarded an OBE for her services to music and charity.

"With regards to the taking of coke which Katherine has courageously publicly admitted with great honesty - this was when she was in her early 20s still studying, over a decade before she was awarded her OBE and started her recording career."

Katherine was granted her OBE in the 2014 New Year Honours list.

Since the leaked emails came out, David has suggested that they have been doctored to sound worse than they originally were.

David broke his social media silence over the weekend to pay tribute to Man United's Busby Babes who were killed in the 1958 Munich air crash.

While his son, Brooklyn, posted an adorbs photo of David and his daughter, Harper.
