X Factor Judge Tulisa's Sex Tape Scandal is No Laughing Matter

This month hasn’t been nice to N-Dubz star-turned-X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos.

On last week’s Overground News Show I spoke about how saddening it was to watch an argument unfold between Tulisa and her cousin/former bandmate Dappy on Twitter.

But that news had nothing on this week’s shocking release of a graphic video featuring Tulisa giving an unidentified man oral sex.

It became an internet sensation within hours of its release by Pappzd.com on Monday morning; sending social media networks, BB and entertainment sites into a frenzy.

Tulisa’s reps later released a statement claiming the tape is ‘100 per cent fake and is just someone trying to cash in on her X Factor role’. But speculation intensified after her lawyers obtained an injunction to ban the video from the internet.

I first met Tulisa at an awards ceremony in 2007, and it’s been pleasing to watch the driven teenager rise from Channel U (now AKA) music videos to ITV1’s X Factor (whose response to the scandal will have major influence over where her career heads next).

And while some fellow artists such as Lethal B make light of the incident (above), I personally hope she pulls through it.

As I wrote three years ago, the price of teen fortune and fame is bad enough as it is.

Akosua, Ed
