Tulisa Contostavlos’ job as an X Factor judge is safe despite the release of a sex tape, show supremo Simon Cowell has said.

The N-Dubz star has accused an ex-boyfriend of betraying her by putting a video showing the pair in “an intimate moment” on the internet.

The singer posted a video herself on YouTube in which she speaks of being “heartbroken” by the leaked footage.

Cowell told The Sun that Tulisa had his support.

“It makes no difference with me about her coming back on the show - 100 per cent,” he said.

“I mean, God, if I said no (to her coming back) it’s allowing every sleazebag in the country to wreck somebody’s career when she didn’t do something wrong.”

He went on to describe the person who leaked the video as “a scumbag” who should “literally find a hole and hide in it for the next week”.
