N-Dubz To Split Over Tulisa's X Factor Job?
Could this be the end for N-Dubz? Find out more here...
A source told the tabloid: "Dappy is livid about the whole situation. Tulisa has a new passion now - and that's not what they got into the business for."
"He has thrown himself into his solo career because, as far as he is concerned, N-Dubz is all but over. The last album didn't do as well as he hoped and X Factor has caused a lot of problems between them."
It is thought that Dappy, who has reportedly signed up with pal Tinchy Stryder's management to represent his solo career, will honour all contractual commitments with N-Dubz including their tour, because he wants to avoid letting down their fans.
The insider continued: "The last tour was stressful. The mood was grim between the three of them. Tulisa is now planning her solo career off the back of X Factor. There have already been talks of arena tours for her in 2012 and a promo strategy."
A spokesperson for N-Dubz has since addressed the rumours, but did not mention the Playing With Fire group's plans for next year.
They stated: "The band will continue despite solo projects. They have gigs throughout 2011 and plans are in place for another single and album. The band are definitely not splitting up."
