Welsh classical singer Katherine Jenkins has parted ways with her record label, Warner Bros.

In a message to her fans on Twitter, Jenkins, 32, confirmed she was "moving record label as I have reached the end of my three album deal".

The singer denied press reports that she had been dropped by Warner over "diva demands" and poor album sales.

Jenkins signed to Warner in 2008 in a three-album deal reported to be worth around £5.8m.

Her first two albums released under Warner - Believe and Daydream - both reached number six in the UK album chart.

Since then sales have fallen dramatically, with her last album, This is Christmas - released in December 2012, peaking at number 26.

It made number three in the classical chart.

In a message posted on Twitter on Thursday, Jenkins said she was "super excited" about her future but declined to give any details, saying she was "sworn to secrecy".

She added: "This is a happy time for me personally and as an artist so please do not be concerned about nonsense reports in the press."

Reports in the Daily Mail suggested the singer had requested up to £1,500-a-day on styling, hair and make-up during promotional and live events.
