Tulisa denies leaking sex tape to promote new song

Tulisa Contostavlos has denied accusations of leaking her sex tape to promote her new single.

The N-Dubz singer earlier this week confirmed that the oral sex footage spread virally indeed featured her and ex-boyfriend MC Ultra.

Her first solo track, ‘Young’, features lyrics that Radio 1 listeners on Twitter have suggested relate to the scandal.

“Forgive me for what I have done ‘cos I’m young,” Contostavlos sings in the first line of the track.

The X Factor judge’s spokesman Simon Jones has refuted allegations that she was involved in the tape’s release, insisting: “It is absolutely ludicrous for people to suggest the tape was a publicity stunt.

“The song was recorded last year and the video filmed last month. It is complete insanity to say she leaked the sex tape herself.

“She has put her heart and soul into her solo career. Why should she have to delay her music release when she has done nothing wrong?”

Contostavlos’s X Factor boss Simon Cowell has defended the 23-year-old following the release of the tape, describing Ultra as a “scumbag”.
