Wednesday 30 October 2013
Singer Tulisa Contostavlos has been re-bailed until early December following her arrest over claims she acted as a go-between in a drug deal.
The former X Factor judge was held along with 35-year-old musician Mike GLC on June 4 after they went to a police station in central London by appointment.
The pair were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs after The Sun on Sunday claimed that Contostavlos, 25, had introduced a journalist to an alleged supplier.
The tabloid reported that half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the alleged deal carried out at London's Dorchester Hotel.
Mike GLC, who will also answer bail in late October, has insisted that he and the former N-Dubz singer are innocent.
Speaking outside Belgravia Police Station after their arrests, he said: “We are innocent. We haven't been charged.
”I am not a drug dealer. I have never sold drugs in my life.“
The singer was officially dropped as a judge on the X Factor days before her arrest, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.
Today her spokesman declined to comment.
