CONTROVERSIAL 'X Factor' flop Chloe Victoria has admitted that her prospects of a pop career were in "tatters" following allegations of drug-taking and prostitution.
Chloe, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, who styles herself Chloe Mafia, failed to get through to the next stage of the show at the weekend.
Her time on the ITV1 talent show was dogged by controversy, with newspaper stories claiming that she worked as a prostitute. And pictures were released that seemed to show her taking cocaine.
The 19-year-old, whose real surname is Heald, told 'This Morning' she had been "set up" and denied being a prostitute.
She admitted taking "a couple of lines" of cocaine.
She said: "Of course I want to have a career but I think it is in tatters, to be honest, now."
