X Factor judge Tulisa to settle sex tape case
SINGER and TV talent show judge Tulisa Contostavlos will today formally settle her legal action against an ex-boyfriend over a sex tape of the couple which appeared on the internet.
The proceedings follow news announced in court earlier this week that rap artist Justin Edwards now admits publication of the tape.
Details of the settlement of her case against Mr Edwards will be given at the High Court in London by Contostavlos' solicitor Jonathan Coad.
At a hearing on Monday, Mr Justice Tugendhat was told that Mr Edwards had admitted responsibility for publication of the video, apologised for it, and "promised not to do it again".
Contostavlos, who shot to fame as a member of hip hop group N-Dubz and landed a high-profile role as a judge on the X Factor talent show, launched legal action against Mr Edwards and others following the emergence of the footage.
She won a High Court order in March banning publication of footage showing her "engaged in a sexual act".
The star and Mr Edwards had been in a relationship in their teens which ended in 2009.
Contostavlos - who celebrates her 24th birthday on Friday - is continuing the action against a number of other defendants over their alleged involvement in the distribution of the tape.
