In March 2012, X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos made allegations against her former boyfriend, accusing him of betraying her by sharing a sex tape of them online.
In a video posted on YouTube, Tulisa expressed her disappointment and revealed that she confronted Justin Edwards, known as MC Ultra, about the situation.
Tulisa spoke emotionally about her relationship with Justin, emphasizing her trust and love for him. She confessed feeling deeply betrayed by someone she once held in high regard. Tulisa acknowledged that many people could relate to sharing intimate moments with someone they care about and never expecting it to be made public.
The singer revealed that they started dating when she was 17 and even lived together for a significant period. Tulisa shared various photographs of them, including one from their holiday. She emphasized the depth of her feelings for Justin, expressing that they had discussed marriage and children.
I loved him deeply, had a lot of respect for him, we talked about kids, we talked about marriage. This was someone I loved and respected and got very close to… and I never expected a scenario like this.
Tulisa disclosed that mutual friends had forewarned her that the sex tape might surface online, suggesting that its emergence did not catch her completely off guard. When she confronted Justin about the situation, he allegedly denied his involvement and lied about it.
This isn’t unexpected for me, about six months ago I got a call from a lot of mutual friends and people who know me and him, saying apparently he has this footage of me that he’s been threatening to bring out for whatever reason, whether it’s to make money or to ruin my career.
I confronted him on this situation, he lied about it, he completely denied it and here we are today. The footage is now circulating online. As you can imagine I’m devastated, heartbroken. I’ve been in bits for the past few days.
When you share an intimate moment with someone that you love and you care about and trust you never imagine for one minute that that footage may at any point be shared with the rest of the UK or even people around the world.
Tulisa expressed her frustration, claiming that he was remaining silent and pretending not to be the person in the video when it was indeed him.
Justin Edwards did not directly respond to Tulisa’s allegations, but he did post a tweet implying that he would share his side of the story to allow others to form their own judgment. He emphasized the importance of hearing both sides before passing judgment.
In July 2012, a High Court judge heard that Tulisa Contostavlos’ former boyfriend, Justin Edwards, had admitted to publishing a sex tape of the couple.
Edwards apologized for his actions and promised not to do it again. Tulisa Contostavlos was devastated by the tape’s release and launched legal action against Edwards. She won a High Court order banning the publication of the tape.

Tulisa rose to fame as a member of the music group N-Dubz, alongside her cousin Dappy and ex-boyfriend Fazer, in 2000. In 2011, she joined the X Factor as a judge and mentored the winning act, Little Mix.

Tulisa Contostavlos is back in the music industry with a new single, “Living Without You.”
On Saturday, she was spotted at a London airport to catch a flight to Glasgow, where she performed for the first time at Clyde 1 Christmas Live, which happened the same day.
To pay homage to the largest city in Scotland, Tulisa wore a tartan dress in dark blue, green, and white. Tartan is associated with Scotland because kilts, traditionally worn by men and boys in Scottish Highlands, usually have tartan patterns.
The 26-year-old singer, who recently admitted she had undergone cosmetic surgery, let her curled dark locks fall loosely over her shoulders.
