Tulisa Contostavlos has been involved in a shouting match with a woman outside a nightclub in Newcastle.
The X Factor judge is claimed by the Sunday Mirror to have let rip at a dental nurse who greeted her boyfriend Danny Simpson as they left the city's popular Tup Tup Palace.
Sarah Ashton, 25, is reported by the paper to have borne the brunt of the former N-Dubz singer's anger, apparently telling a friend: "All I did was say 'Danny' when he came out of Tup Tup with Tulisa. She turned around and started using gangster-type talk.
"Danny was behind her... when she got to the taxi she turned around and was still shouting abuse when it drove off.
"She looked really angry but all I'd done was say her boyfriend's name."
Tulisa was in town to see her footballer beau play in a home match for Newcastle United.
A spokesperson for the star told the Sunday Mirror: "Tulisa and Danny were minding their own business and as they left the club, two girls started shouting abuse at her.
"She responded and there was an argument but Tulisa didn’t threaten them. A doorman from the club led her to a taxi."
Tulisa was recently reported to have been screaming and shouting at Will.I.Am about the star's latest hit.
