Tulisa thanks fans as sex tape court case comes to an end
Tulisa Contostavlos thanked her fans today (July 12) for sticking by her as her sex tape court case came to an end.
The singer has been embroiled in a legal battle with ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards after a sex tape of the pair was leaked onto the internet.
Edwards recently admitted uploading the video online and speaking outside London's High Court, Tulisa said she was "relieved" that the case has been settled, adding that Edwards "messed with the wrong woman". She said in a statement:
"I am relieved that this is finally over. It has been a very testing few months, and this was not a case I ever wanted to go through. Justin Edwards' actions were to spite me, make money and ruin my career. He has succeeded in none of these things. I stand here today a stronger, wiser young woman who has taken this experience and learnt from it. I am disgusted by Justin and saddened by the people that believed I released the footage myself."
She continued: "Today the truth has prevailed. After months of lying to the public and lying in court, Justin has finally admitted to being guilty and I hope justice is served. I would now like to draw a line under this and put it in the past. I also would like to thank from the bottom of my heart, the fans that stood by me. I'm especially grateful for all the support I have received from the public, my friends, family and team. With that support and my determination I have won this battle. Justin messed with the wrong woman."
As part of the settlement, Edwards has agreed not to speak further in public about their relationship.
