Tulisa Still Upset By 'Fag Ash Breath' Jibe
Louis Walsh reckons The X Factor judge hasn't forgiven Gary yet…
Head judge Barlow made the comment two weeks ago and has since apologised, saying that Tulisa has "the freedom to be as personal as she likes" with him for the remainder of the show - but according to Walsh, the former N-Dubz star isn’t likely to forgive him any time soon.
Commenting on the incident, Walsh said that their relationship would "take time" to mend.
"They're pretending they're best friends but I know it's not 100 per cent yet," he told the official X Factor website. "It's going to take time for their friendship to go back to what it was.
"I won't be intervening. Tulisa is very much her own woman and doesn't need me to fight her battles."
In her own Q&A, Tulisa said that she was "cool" with the rest of the judges, adding: "Louis loves a good gossip but not in a spiteful way.
"This may surprise people but he knows how to keep a secret."
Meanwhile, the local council has reportedly warned show producers to ban Tulisa from smoking in her dressing room as it breaks the law on smoking in the workplace.
