Tulisa opens up about her boyfriend

Notoriously private about her personal life, new X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos rarely opens up about any love interests.

Rumours have been circulating about Tulisa and her relationship with N-Dubz bandmate, Fazer for a long time.

The pair have barely been apart since they formed N-Dubz with Tulisa's cousin (and Fazer's best friend) Dappy, 12 years ago.

Talking to The Sunday Mirror, Tulisa said: "I'm really happy and have the best boyfriend - he's really supportive in what I'm doing with the show [X Factor]."

"He's my rock- he's been there for me throughout the past few months. I couldn't be doing what I'm doing without him," she revealed.

Although speculation has still been swirling around Fazer as Tulisa's boyfriend, she tweeted: "Just as I suspected, I have never said I was in a relationship with fazer, only said what my boyfriend meant 2 me, didn not say who he was."
