Tulisa Arrested Over Drugs Claims
Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been arrested and bailed on suspicion of supplying class A drugs.
The 24-year-old singer, who found fame with N-Dubz, was arrested along with a 35-year-old man by appointment at a central London police station and they both remain in custody.
The arrests come after the Metropolitan Police said its officers were ''considering'' information after a newspaper suggested Contostavlos had acted as a go-between in a drug deal by introducing a journalist to an alleged supplier.
The Sun On Sunday reported that half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the deal conducted at London's
A Met Police spokesman said today:
"Officers from Westminster have today, Tuesday June 4, arrested two people - a 35 year-old man and a 24-year-old woman - by appointment at a central London police station on suspicion of being concerned win the supply of class A drugs.
"They remain in custody at a central London police station."
Contostavlos' spokesman declined to comment on the development.
Contostavlos was officially dropped as a judge on The X Factor just days ago, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.
The star - whose debut solo album made it to only number 35 in the charts - won an apology last year from a former boyfriend who leaked footage on to the internet of the two of them performing a sex act.
A Met Police spokesman said a 24-year-old woman and 35-year-old man had been bailed to a date in July, adding that two residential properties were searched as part of the investigation.
