An investigation conducted by the Daily Mail has outed a cyber bully who has been vociferously pursuing an online hate campaign against Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins.

Named as 43 year old former civil servant Geraldine Curtis the paper tracked down the poison keyboarder to her home in Brixton, after Jenkins went public with her frustration at the abuse.

Speaking to the Mail Curtis said of Jenkins: “She can’t sing. She is not an opera singer. She criticises opera singers. For years her website has said that opera singers are histrionic, overweight and frumpy.

“She claims that she has “brought opera to ordinary people” who are too stupid to like opera, that’s her attitude.

“She is very critical of other people but she cannot take criticism. My comments about Katherine Jenkins are critical but she is in the public eye.”

Curtis has now been banned from Twitter and her personal blog has been taken down.

A spokesperson for Jenkins said: “She loves using Twitter and it’s great that she can continue using it without the constant hurtful and damaging comments made by that individual.”
