X Factor Consultant Says Sorry To Tulisa For Involvement In Tape Leak
Tulisa has been fighting a battle in court to sue all of those responsible for leaking an intimate tape of her and her ex, Justin Edwards. It was previously revealed that Chris Herbert, who helped create the Spice Girls, had apparently been involved in a bid to make money from selling the film online…
Herbert worked on the X Factor as a consultant but was later sacked after obvious conflictions. The music manager has now released a statement, saying that he is sorry: “I am so sorry to her for any part I may have played in this horrible saga. I was disgusted by the whole thing and from day one advised Justin not to do anything with the tape.
“My reputation and business has been ruined by these unsavoury people. I never tried to make a penny.”
The 41-year-old added: “I even got a lawyer to tell him he would be sued. I tried to protect him because he was my client but I never made or asked for a penny. To be honest, I wish I’d never set eyes on the idiot.”
The remorseful manager concluded by saying that he hopes he will be able to “explain everything to Tulisa in person.”
Tulisa’s manager replied swiftly, telling the MailOnline: '‘If Chris Herbert were genuinely sorry, he would be saying nothing. One ‘sorry’ does not make up for all the upset caused to Tulisa. This trauma to Tulisa was compounded by the defendants before admitting their lies, allowing claims this was a Tulisa publicity stunt which was 100 per cent never the case.”
