A disheartened Katherine Jenkins has branded Alfie Boe a “bully” after he reprised their famous feud this week by calling her a c**t.
The 38-year-old singer was shocked when she learned that her former Carousel co-stat had written the C-word on a poster of her at a HMV signing.
The pair had previously locked horns last year when they starred alongside one another in the musical at the London Coliseum, with Boe reportedly disgruntled by Jenkins’ superior billing.
Speaking to The Sun , the Welsh singer revealed she had been deeply hurt by the stunt and hoped that it wasn’t true.

She said: "I wish I could say that it isn’t true, but I can’t.
"I just sort of feel like we shouldn’t really give bullies a voice and I’m a big girl.”
When asked why she thinks Boe would’ve make the remark, Jenkins responded: “You’d have to ask him as I think that word is a really strong word.”
But the mother-of-two has insisted she has no plans to enact revenge.

Also speaking to ITV’s Loose Women , Katherine said: “I’m a typical Cancerian so I have a strong outer shell and I’m really soft on the inside.
“I don’t like confrontation, I don’t like to argue with anybody, I don’t argue with anybody, and I don’t fall out with people – so I’ll do anything to avoid that kind of thing.
“This is really something that is out of character in my life. I don’t experience this kind of thing.”

Despite winning over critics with their on-stage chemistry in Carousel, behind stage doors, things were far from acrimonious between the pair.
In addition to 45-year-old Boe’s alleged dismay at Jenkins’ more prestigious billing, there was also a disagreement about who should get the final bow.
Katherine however insists she was too focused on the work to worry about minor details and that there wasn’t a rift from her point of view.
She said: “For me, it was just quite shocking. I had an amazing time and made incredible friends with all the 71 cast members we had.
"So the stuff about there being a feud? Absolutely no feud from my side.”
Though hurt by Boe’s attack, the busy mum says she won’t be losing sleep over the stunt.
“It’s a really hectic time with the babies and the album. I just don’t want anything to spoil that,” she said.
“I just want to enjoy the moment and not think about something like that which obviously was very upsetting.”
