Tulisa Contostavlos found guilty of assaulting blogger Savvas Morgan at V Festival
The singer had previously denied the charges
A judge made the ruling at Stratford Magistrates' Court in east London today. The singer hit Savvas Morgan during an altercation at the Essex festival last year.
Her assistant, Gareth Varey, was cleared of using threatening behaviour during the incident.
They had both denied the charges.
Earlier this week, a drugs trial against Contostavlos was thrown out of court, after a judge said there were “strong grounds” to believe that Sun on Sunday undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood, dubbed the ‘Fake Sheikh’, had “lied” at an earlier hearing.
Mahmood has been suspended from the publication pending further investigation.Contostavlos was accused of brokering a cocaine deal, which she firmly denied.
Following the trial’s collapse, she made a statement to the press calling the case “horrific and disgusting entrapment”.
