  • The singer admits the sex tape is hers and blames ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards for leaking it online

    X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has said that she’s devastated that a sex tape showing footage of her being intimate with an ex-boyfriend has been leaked online.

    The 23-year-old has posted a video on Youtube in order to set the record straight about the tape which has been doing the rounds on the internet.

    In a five-minute video, the N-Dubz singer accuses ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards, or MC Ultra as he’s known, of breaking her trust by posting the footage of her performing a sex act online and says that she’s heartbroken at his actions.


    She said: ‘As you can imagine, I am devastated, heartbroken, I have been in bits for the last few days.

    ‘When you share an intimate moment with someone that you love, you care about and you trust, you never imagine for one minute that that footage may at any point be shared with the rest of the UK or the rest of the people around the world.

    She continued: ‘As you can imagine, it’s a pretty tough time for me, but I don’t feel that I should be the one to take the heat for it, or the stick. This was something that he took upon himself to put online and he is now sitting in silence pretending that it’s not him.

    ‘This is someone that I loved, that I trusted, that I feel deeply betrayed by. I am sure that everyone at home has had intimate moments with someone they cared about and never expected at any point that they would go and share it with the rest of the world.”

    She added: ‘As much as this is nothing to do with me and it’s not my fault and I do feel victimised, I apologise to anyone that this has offended. I know for a fact that it will never happen again.’

    Tulisa has obtained an injunction prohibiting anyone from using, publishing, communicating or disclosing all or any part of the film.
