Tulisa's ever changing appearance has managed to overshadow her successful music career in recent years.

She earned legions of fans with N'Dubz and then as a judge on The X Factor, but since leaving the show in 2013 she's kept a pretty low profile.

The Live It Up hitmaker makes a few red carpet appearances per year and has largely kept to herself (excluding a few convenient paparazzi shots on holidays) since she battled a barrage of legal troubles in recent years.

In 2014, charges against her were dismissed as she was accused of helping to supply cocaine to the 'Sun on Sunday' journalist, who was posing as a Bollywood film-maker seeking to offer her a lucrative movie deal.

Later that year, she was found guilty of assaulting a celebrity blogger Savvas Morgan at V Festival and fined €4,000.

In April of this year, she pleaded guilty to drink driving after crashing her Ferrari into an oncoming vehicle.

Her latest selfie, simply captioned "Rise & Shine", sparked speculation she's had even more work done.

She admitted to having gone under the knife - getting lip injections and botox.

She told the Guardian: "Yes, I've had my lips done, and I'm happy with my lips.

"And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks. Pictures of me where my face was swelling, I had water retention - where you have filler your face draws up a load of water - so my face began to swell like balloon."

She said she made the decision to have the work done after losing weight.

She also denied she has had a nose job - saying that it is just contouring.

"It really bugs me when people say I've had a nose job. That's just make-up.

"So losing a stone, filler in my cheeks, my lips done and the contouring - and people do think, oh gosh, you look so different."
