Tulisa admits existence of the tape
X Factor star Tulisa Contostavlos has finally spoken out regarding rumours of a supposed ‘sex tape’ which surfaced on the internet this week.
The former N-Dubz singer has now confirmed that a tape does exist, despite obtaining a gagging order earlier in the week to prevent media agencies from reporting on it.
Speaking via a video posted on her Twitter page on 21 March, the 23-year-old admitted that she was “heartbroken”, but wanted to “set the record straight”:
“I wanted to set the record straight on a certain tape circulating online, that consists of footage of me and my ex-boyfriend having an intimate moment.
“I have never been the type to sit down and keep my mouth shut, and to keep quiet about anything, especially when I’ve done nothing wrong whatsoever.”
She continued, revealing that her former boyfriend, Justin ‘MC Ultra’ Edwards, had previously threatened to release the material to “ruin [Tulisa's] career”:
“I confronted him, he lied about it. And here we are today and the footage is now circulating online.
“I don’t feel that I should be the one to take heat or stick. This is something that he took upon himself to put online. He’s now sitting in silence, saying it’s not him on the tape, when it is.”
Since Tulisa’s comments, Edwards has taken to his Twitter account, posting:
“I believe in silence being a sign of Integrity but in this case I guess I’ll have to speak up and Lay out the facts and let you guys decide.
“To find the truth both sides of the story should be heard b4 [sic] passing judgement #thatisall”
Footage of a blonde-haired female, now known to be Tulisa, appeared on Pappzd earlier this week.
It later had to be taken down after the site received a handwritten cease and desist notice.
