Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been tough a lot lately with a drugs trial that collapsed and her attack on a man at V Festival.
Well now Simon Cowell has said that he stands by Tulisa and this news comes just days after it was rumoured that she was going to return to the X Factor as the fifth judge.
Talking about Tulisa Simon said:
‘Tulisa’s been thought a rough time and has come through it. I think she deserves a break now. I think she’d got a lot of opportunities ahead of her.’
Judge Louis Walsh has said that he eager to have Tulisa back on the show as he told a newspaper:
‘I have spoken to Tulisa. I totally support her. I spent so much time in her dressing room, I know who the real Tulisa is. She’s not Mother Theresa but she’s a lovely girl.
‘She’s rough around the edges but she’s a good girl. I like her. I definitely would have her at judges’ houses. She’ll bounce back. She’s a tough lady and she’s made it this far on her own.
‘My advice would be to make a great record and show off that gorgeous face of hers. Solo or group? She can do both.’
So what do you think is Tulisa going to be the fifth judge?
Let us know.
The last few months there has not been a day go by that Tulisa Contostavlos has not been in the news.
With a ongoing drugs trial and her attacking a man a V Festival lots of reports have been posted about the comer X Factor judge but it wasn’t just the court cases that where making the news.
Her lips and and her appearance has been the most talked about because she has changed her appearance dramatically recently.
Tulisa has now admitted and opened up about the amount of botox and lip fillers she has had.
Speaking to The Guardian, Tulisa said:
‘Yes, I’ve had my lips done, and I’m happy with my lips. And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks.
R‘Pictures of me where my face swelling, I had water retention – where you have filler your face draws up loads of water. So my face began to swell like a balloon.’
To be honest we think she now looks awful.
Them lips are tooooooo big!
With the last few months being the worst of her life today Tulisa Contostavlos has been getting ready to go back to work.

‘Yeah, I am being honest. I don’t care. Yeah’.

Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been found guilty after she attacked a man at V Festival last year.
Tulisa was in court today just one week after she was found not guilty of drug dealing.
Last year Tulisa was at the festival when she attacked Celebrity Blogger Vas Morgan and now has been forced to pay £3,020, including £2,700 of legal costs, a £200 fine and £100 compensation.
As it was said previously in the trial Vas’ eye swelled up after the attack!
Talking in court Vas said:
“I am quite sure to the requisite standard of proof, based on my analysis of the evidence that I have heard, that Ms Contostavlos did strike Mr Morgan in the face during an argument and that that blow caused minor bruising and swelling.”
The former N-Dubz star then spoke outside of the court and said:
“This has been a rollercoaster week for me. I never wanted any of this.
“I did not assault Vas J Morgan and I am outraged at this decision. I will be appealing it.”
For the last few weeks Tulisa Contostavlos has been in and out of court for trying to see drugs to a journalist.
Well today the curt case has collapsed and Tulisa walked away from court today a free lady!
The trial was held at London’s Southwark Crown Court and ruled that Sun on Sunday undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood gave ‘entirely inconsistent evidence’.
In a statement the former X Factor judge said:
“Let me be perfectly clear. I have never dealt drugs and never been involved in taking or dealing cocaine.
“This whole case was a horrific and disgusting entrapment by Mazher Mahmood and the Sun on Sunday newspaper.
“Mahmood has now been exposed by my lawyers openly lying to the judge and jury. These lies were told to stop crucial evidence going before the jury. This evidence shows that I told Mahmood’s long-standing driver that I disapproved of drugs, which is the truth.
“It is clear that the driver was pressured to change his statement to strengthen Mahmood’s evidence and to damage mine.
“Thankfully the lies have been uncovered and justice has been done.
“This case only happened because Mahmood and his team tricked me into believing I was auditioning for a major movie role.
“They targeted me at a time when things were going badly for me and they had no mercy.
“Mahmood got me and my team completely intoxicated and persuaded me to act the part of a bad, rough, ghetto girl.
“They recorded this and produced this as evidence when I thought it was an audition. It was a terrible thing to do.
“As my lawyer said at the outset, we have now succeeded in exposing the real culprits and, most importantly, the real liar.
“As someone who has had my life ruined for the last year I strongly believe that this type of entrapment should not be allowed to happen to anyone.
“I urge both the police and News UK to investigate Mazher Mahmood and his team and to put an end to his deceit in pursuit of sensational stories for commercial gain.
“I have not been able to work for a year, and I am now looking forward to resuming my career.
“I will use these experiences to make me stronger. I would like to thank all the people who have supported me through this terrible ordeal, including my fans and, of course, my legal team.”
Let’s just hope they charge Mahmood now!
