Tulisa plans to sue ex-lover over leaked sex tape

Taking it further: Tulisa Contostavlos is said to be suing Justin Edwards for £100,000 over the leaked sex tapeEarlier this week she broke her silence over a leaked sex tape in which she stars but it seems Tulisa Contostavlos isn’t finished dealing with it just yet.

The 23-year-old singer is reportedly looking to sue wannabe rap star, Justin Edwards for sharing the footage despite him claiming it wasn’t him who leaked it.

According to The Sun, the N-Dubz star has called in her lawyers to seek damages for up to £100,000.

Legal papers were apparently served at a house in West Hampstead, North London, where Edwards mother lives.

However, the 28-year-old, who goes by the name MC Ultra wasn’t there at the time and is said to be hiding out in the West Country since the video was up for sale online for £3.90 on Monday.

As source close to Edwards told the newspaper: ‘She’s suing for up to £100,000. This latest move by Tulisa has really unnerved and unsettled him. It’s serious stuff and he’s got to take it seriously. It’s a lot of pressure for him.’

As well as this latest move, an application to extend Tulisa’s emergency injunction will be heard at the High Court on Monday.

The X Factor judge’s lawyers made the move rather quickly once news of the tape had spread.

But despite the London-born star owning up to being the female in the footage, one person who is still shocked by the whole situation is Tulisa’s stepmother Melanie Vondrau.

The 39-year-old, was married to the star’s father Plato for ten years up until 2009, claims that her ‘heart just broke’ when she heard the news.

‘A young girl who respects herself would choose her partner very wisely,’ she told The Sun. ‘She is clearly not making the right partner choices.

The housewife went on to say that she thinks Tulisa’s broken home is to blame for her choice of men.

‘She needs strong, loving parental guidance. Unfortunately for Tulisa, her mum is not very well and she has got a father who is a distant character.

‘I feel she is a victim of her childhood – the classic little girl who wants her father’s love.’

These latest comments will no doubt add to the singer’s difficult week after her fans took to Twitter to accuse her orchestrating the scenario to grab their attention.

Just days after the sex tape was leaked online, the singer released a rather suggestive video for her debut single We Are Young.

As she sings the catchy lyrics, including ‘forgive me for what I have done’, Tulisa can be seen licking up ice cream with her tongue.

The single has been getting mixed reviews, and some fans have spoken out about the timing of her Youtube video.

The song features some hard partying antics from Tulisa and opens with the line: ‘Forgive me for what I have done, cos I’m young, yeah I’m young.

‘I don’t mean to frighten you off, it’s just fun, it’s just fun.’

After We Are Young was played on Radio One by Chris Moyles, one fan wrote: ‘Is it just coincidence that the Tulisa video ”scandal” is the same week she is publicising her debut single?’

Another person said: ‘Waitttt, tulisa’s clip gets leaked 2 days before she releases her first single #publicitystunt’.

We Are Young is an electro pop song produced by Tulisa’s ex-boyfriend and band mate Richard ‘Fazer’ Rawson.

It has been compared in sound to the Rihanna and Calvin Harris hit We Found Love, and the video, which was shot in Miami, last month, shows several sides to the singer.

The single is all about being young and making mistakes that you can learn from, and features some poignant lyrics.

The north London-born star sings: ‘I’ll make mistake that I learn from cos I’m young. yeah I’m young.

‘I’m sorry I’m not even done, cos I’m young yeah I’m young.

‘Don’t worry bout what I’ll become, it’s just fun, it’s just fun.’
