Tulisa Contostavlos appears in court over assault charge

The former X Factor judge, 25, pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault by beating and was released on unconditional bail

Tulisa Contostavlos has appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates’ court accused of attacking a man at V Festival last year.

The former X Factor judge, 25, pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault by beating and was released on unconditional bail.

Contostavlos was interviewed by police voluntarily after the alleged incident took place at the musical event on 8 August.

She also issued a statement at the time denying the allegation made by celebrity blogger Vas Morgan.

The writer claims that the N-Dubz singer hit him in a “drunken and angry state”.

 

“Tulisa strongly denies assaulting Mr Morgan,” a representative of Contostavlos said at the time.

The case is set to go to trial in May.
