Tulisa Contostavlos arrested over drug deal claims

The former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been arrested over the supply of class A drugs.

She had been accused over the weekend by a newspaper, who said she had introduced their reporter to a drug dealer.

It was claimed the drug dealer then sold half an ounce of cocaine to them at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

Newsbeat asked for a comment from Tulisa’s management but are still waiting for a response.

Asked about reports that Tulisa Contostavlos had been arrested the Met Police said: “Officers from Westminster have arrested two people – a 35-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman – on suspicion of supplying class-A drugs.

“They are in custody at a Central London police station.”

The 24-year-old recently confirmed on her Twitter account that she would no longer sit as a judge on ITV’s The X Factor.

She added: “I’d like to thank everyone on The X Factor for two amazing years.”

X Factor says “the two stories are unconnected”.

Tulisa’s private life has made the news in the past, including when the singer took to YouTube to make a statement about a leaked sex tape. At the time, Tulisa described the experience as “devastating”.
