A former bandmate of Tulisa Contostavlos, the X Factor judge caught up in a sex tape scandal has reportedly said that the alleged sex tape of the singer is real. The video has been banned from the Internet after Contostavlos' lawyers reportedly got an injunction.
Contact Music reported that Dappy, who is Contostavlos' cousin and former N-Dubz bandmate, claimed on his Twitter page that the alleged sex tape, which shows a blonde woman engaging in oral sex with an unidentified man, is her and her ex-boyfriend Fazer.
Contact Music noted that two tweets, which have since been deleted from his Twitter account read:
''JUST SO EVERY 1 KNOWS, ME AND FAZER HAVE F----D MANY B-----S 2 GETHER,SO I AM CLEARLY STATING THAT THE D--K IN T'S ALLEGED SEX TAPE IS FAZERS.
''SECOND OF ALL, THAT WAS MORE THAN THREE YEARS AGO WHEN FAZER TOOK THEM PICS ...THIS IS SIMPLY @IamFazer TRYING 2 GET @officaltulisa BACK! NUFF SAID! (sic)''
The 23-year-old singer split from Fazer split earlier this year, according to reports.
As soon as the video hit the Web on Monday, the X Factor sent her lawyers in to take action against websites, asking that the video be removed. Some websites are still linking to and hosting the racy tape.
The Daily Mail also reported that the injunction obtained prohibits anyone from using, publishing or communicating or disclosing to any other person all or any part of the video.
Contostavlos' rep Simon Jones has also told the Daily Mail that Tulisa has asked us not to comment on speculation about her personal life.
That report also stated that an unidentified man approached the X Factor judge last year, wanting to sell a supposed sex tape for £500,000. The singer's spokesperson has said the fake tape is just someone trying to cash in on Contostavlos' X Factor role.
Contostavlos was born in Camden and hr N-Dubz fame began in 2008. She formed the band with her cousin Dappy (Costadinos Contostavlos) and ex-boyfriend Fazer (Richard Rawson) in the early 2000s, according to the Daily Mail.
