Katherine Jenkins 'Struggling To Perform Since Split'
After breaking up with Gethin Jones, the star admits she's still emotional...
The opera star, who broke down in tears during the opening night of her UK tour on 8th January, claims that without the support of her fans, she doubts whether she would be able to take to the stage again.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Jenkins explained: "I've had so much support from fans over the past few weeks - everyone has been really amazing,"I've had so many messages that have helped me. I don't think I could have got up on stage without that. I got through [my shows], that's the main thing. I actually really enjoyed it once I was up there. My fans have been so loyal which is so lovely."
She added: "Being on stage is the happiest I've been in a long time. I hope everyone can see I still really enjoy performing."
Katherine was said to be "beyond broken-hearted" after breaking off her engagement from Jones at the end of last year, with reports suggesting the couple may have parted ways due to the 31-year old singer's 'demanding goals.'
A source previously told the Daily Mail: "She desperately wants to establish herself as a bona fide international star, particularly in America. It requires great dedication, single-mindedness and an awful lot of time away from home. You try to keep all the balls in the air, but inevitably something has to give."
Jenkins' friend added: "I think, in the end, Gethin just got tired of asking her [to set a wedding date]. Katherine is upset - they both are - but she's throwing herself into work as usual."
