Tulisa: My sex tape hell

Tulisa: My sex tape hell

The sex tape shame singer Tulisa Contostavlos suffered was so bad that she slept on the floor for a week, the N-Dubz and solo singer has revealed.

Contostavlos, 23, said she was “devastated” by the tape’s release and became a prisoner in her home.

In an interview with the Guardian she said: “I slept on the bathroom floor for seven days ... I just wouldn’t go out of the house. Couldn’t sleep. Didn’t really want to eat anything.

“But I snapped out of it. I knew what I was doing. I knew in my head that I was depressed; I knew why I was depressed.

“It was all logical. I didn’t want to smile. I didn’t want to be happy. I needed to have my tears and tantrums, my bad moods, and get myself into a state to come back out of it.

“And I literally just woke up one morning, as happy as Larry, put on my best dress, make-up, full hair: ‘OK, I’m going out’.”

The X Factor judge and N-Dubz star took legal action after footage surfaced of her sharing an “intimate moment” with former boyfriend Justin Edwards. He denies posting the clip.
