Tulisa at centre of drug-deal probe by police

Dean Gray

Police are looking into claims that chart star and former 'X Factor' judge Tulisa Contostavlos was involved in a drug deal.

Scotland Yard said it was "considering" information after a newspaper suggested she had acted as a go-between in the 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 Dorchester Hotel.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed: "We have received information concerning the alleged supply of illegal drugs at a central London location.

"We are considering the information received."

Tulisa's management did not wish to comment on the claims.

The singer – who found fame with N-Dubz – was officially dropped as a judge on 'X Factor' just days ago, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.

Tulisa (24) is said to have boasted to the reporter: "Half my phone book sells it. Of course I can get it for you. Half the guys I know are drug dealers."

The star said that she did not take the drug herself. Tulisa won an apology from a former boyfriend last year who leaked footage on to the internet of the two of them performing a sex act.
