Simon Cowell Supports Tulisa Over Sex Tape
Cowell reassures The X Factor judge that her job on the show is safe…
Speaking at the launch of Britain's Got Talent, he insisted the N-Dubz singer had “nothing to apologise for” and said he felt very sorry for her.
"Tulisa doesn't have to apologise for anything. The only person who has to apologise is the scumbag who sold the tape," he said.
"It's private, it's intimate and she did nothing wrong. People do these things in the bedroom believe it or not. I feel very sorry for her. He's a scumbag and I feel very, very angry about this."
Cowell reassured Tulisa that her role on The X Factor was "safe" saying he wanted her to come back "one hundred percent" - adding that he wanted all four judges to return for the next series.
And he gave a stern warning to MC Ultra, who Contostavlos has accused of leaking the sex act video footage, not to come "within 100 miles of the X Factor studios".
Yesterday, MC Ultra vowed to tell his side of the story and "lay out the facts" when it comes to his involvement in the sex tape fiasco.
Contostavlos recently spoke out about the tape in a video blog, admitting it was her.
"As you can imagine, I am devastated, heartbroken. When you share an intimate moment with someone that you love and care about and trust, you never imagine that footage will be shared with the world," she said.
