Tulisa Contostavlos Denies Using Gang Sign & Argues With Dappy
Tulisa Contostavlos Denies Using Gang Sign & Argues With Dappy

X Factor UK judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been accused of using a gang sign while filming her music video over the weekend, something which the singer herself vehemently denies.

She’s released a statement saying that the “C” symbol she was making with her fingers in pictures posted on Tumblr - believed to be the sign used by North London the Crime Scene Boys - was supposed to be a homage to the part of the capital she grew up in; Camden.

“I filmed a street video on Sunday night for a track on my album” said Tulisa in her statement. “The video was a collaboration with the rapper Nines. When we were filming on the street loads of other people turned up and joined in the shoot.

“When I was holding my hands in the ‘C’ sign, this was as a tribute to Camden, my home town and where N-Dubz began. I am not aware that this sign has anything to with any street gang and I 100 percent do not endorse any gang violence in any form.”

With one thing cleared up, Tulisa moved onto a row with her cousin Dappy. She lashed out at the rapper – who she recently appeared to reconcile with – over his new song/video for his track Tarzan 2.

She’s slated him for mocking celebs like Simon Cowell, Joe McElderry and Alexandra Burke in the track. She took to Twitter to say:

‘Stop cussin peeps out 4 ratins! talent speaks 4 itself u little s***.Wen will u bloody learn!wen we unite Im gettin u back in shape.’

He replied: ‘Now why would u say that„,i cant believe u T…Why would u say this about my work..Just so u can keep cool with your xf job. Sad really….Guess im on my own again……F*** x factor’

Refusing to let him have the last word, Tulisa hit back saying: ‘Ur a talented little f***er with to many issues! sort it out daps friggin sort it out!!!’

There have been plenty of arguments between the N-Dubz members since they went on their hiatus and it seems that Tulisa will never return to the group, having had bust ups with both her cousin Dappy and her ex boyfriend Fazer.

However, it appears that Dappy and Fazer are still happy to work together and have been spending some time in the studio with one another. Fazer took to his official Twitter account to confirm that the two had been in the studio with a picture of him and Dappy together.
 
Along with the picture, Fazer tweeted, “Jus left the studio wiv @TheDappy now back 2my lab 2finish a certain record! Coz were finalising it on Tuesday!!” While many N-Dubz fans were delighted to see Dappy and Fazer together, some felt that it was not right, as Tulisa was not there.
 
A disgruntled fan tweeted, “1 person missing that shud b in this pic is @officialtulisa xx”. While Tulisa and Dappy have been off doing their own thing, Fazer has been keeping fairly quiet on the music scene but is set to release some of his solo material this year.
Tulisa sex tape update

This week has definitely been a week to forget for former N-Dubz singer Tulisa Contostavlos, as a sex tape claiming to be her and ex boyfriend Fazer appeared online. However, a representative for the singer and X Factor judge has claimed that it is not her.

The rep told The Sun, “She is horrified that someone would go to the extreme lengths of fabricating a video. It is absolutely not her. Tulisa has categorically never allowed anyone to film her having sex. This tape is 100 per cent fake. [It] is just someone trying to cash in on her X Factor role.”
 
Since the Tulisa sex tape first appeared on the internet, there have been claims that the owner of the material has been trying to sell it. However, Tulisa has since been granted a court order to stop anyone from showing the sex tape or any material from it.
 
Tulisa’s cousin and former N-Dubz bandmate Dappy, took to his official Twitter account when the story broke, to claim that the man in the Tulisa sex tape was in fact Fazer. Dappy has since deleted his tweets and it has been claimed the his Twitter account was hacked.

A video has emerged, which claims to be a Tulisa Contostavlos sex tape. The tape shows a young lady, who does look remarkably like Tulisa, giving oral sex to a young man. The website hosting the video has tried to sell the Tulisa sex tape, forcing the star to respond.

Tulisa Contostavlos has since had her lawyers issue a cease and desist order to the website and they have even been to the offices of one website which has shown the video. A gagging order has now been placed, stopping people in both the US and the UK from showing anything to do with the Tulisa sex tape.
 
While all of this has been going on, Tulisa’s cousin Dappy took to his official Twitter account to confirm that it is Tulisa in the video and that the male in the sex tape is in fact Fazer. The tweets have since been removed but they claimed that Fazer released the Tulisa sex tape as revenge for her ending their relationship.
 
While the Tulisa Contostavlos sex tape has now had to be taken off of the internet, it has not stopped news of it spreading around the world. It is unclear if this scandal will have any effect on Tulisa returning to The X Factor.
 
Have you seen the Tulisa sex tape? Do you think it is definitely her?
Dappy predicts huge solo career for one N-Dubz member
Dappy predicts huge solo career for one N-Dubz member

Singer Dappy has revealed how he believes that one of the members of his band N-Dubz are likely to go on and have a huge solo career in the future, leaving the other two members in the shadows. Dappy admitted that, while Tulisa and Fazer are doing so well, it motivates him to work harder to keep up with them.

Dappy explained, “Obviously Tulisa's doing the X Factor thing and her own album. Fazer's doing the whole catwalk thing and his own production album. I'm like, 'Wow, these lot are flying too - we've got to keep up with each other'. One of us is going to go big, one of us is going to go nuts.”
 
He added, “We’ve just got to make sure we can maintain. If Tulisa got massive it would be easy for me and Fazer to get lost in the drain.” Dappy recently admitted that N-Dubz would be likely to get back together in the future for a reunion tour. Dappy has also recently claimed that if his latest single Rockstar made it to number one, he would be looking to collaborate with Rihanna on his next single Dare to Dream.

N-Dubz singer Dappy has been discussing the current state of his hit making band and whether or not N-Dubz have split up once and for all. However, Dappy has rejected those claims, stating that each of the three members of N-Dubz are currently enjoying doing their own thing but ultimately they will get back together sometime in the future.

Dappy explained, “For now, obviously Tulisa’s doing the ‘X Factor’ and she’s doing her solo album out in LA. Fazer’s doing his whole modelling thing - he was out meeting Kate Moss on the catwalk and what not - and right now it’s just we’re having a little break. Everyone wants to do their individual things and we can’t always be on top of each other.
 
He added, “We’ve been together for 11 years, so it’s like she wants to do her thing, I want to do my thing, so we’ll give it a break for about two or three years, I believe - approximately - and then we might come back and do a massive arena tour again. But for now, I’m trying to get number ones after number ones.” Dappy recently criticised Olly Murs claiming that he needs to learn how to sing live.

Dappy slams Olly Murs Brit Award performance

Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has slammed former X Factor wannabe Olly Murs for his performance at the Brit Awards last week. Dappy claims that he was not impressed with the performance of Olly Murs and even suggested that he needs to learn how to sing. It is not the first time that Dappy has had a pop at a fellow celebrity and it is highly unlikely to be the last.

Dappy explained, “Bloomin’ hell, Olly Murs needs to learn how to sing, boy. He came off The X Factor so he should be able to sing and yet that was a horrific performance. You can’t do things like that.” Dappy then went on to discuss his future regarding the Brit Awards and whether he thinks he should have been nominated for any.
 
He added, “I don’t feel I deserve to be at The Brits yet. I need a year of hits, then I’ll be able to go. I’ve had a No1 but I need a couple more. I was so happy for Adele and Ed Sheeran.” Dappy recently revealed how he has ended his cheating ways because he felt that it shows him as a weak person and he hated having to try and win his girlfriend back every time.

Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has revealed how he was absolutely amazed when he found out that legendary Queen guitarist Brian May had agreed to appear on his latest track Rockstar. Dappy admitted that he could not understand how he managed to have such a music legend appearing on one of his tracks.

Dappy explained, “I’m gobsmacked really to have him on the track. How on earth did I get such a legend on that track? I don’t know. I want to get the third one and have three number ones, I’m dying for it. But the thing is you can’t - everyone knows - we can’t get to number one with music that isn’t good.”
 
He added, “We need irresistible music and they’re the type of songs that get to number one and we’re just trying to maintain it, really. After this next Rockstar song comes out, I’ve got the third one lined up ready to go and it is completely different to Rockstar and No Regrets, and it’s something for everyone again.” Dappy also admitted that he was on the road to superstardom, after seeing fans with tattoo’s of his face on their backs.
Faithful Dappy no longer cheats

Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has revealed how he no longer cheats on his girlfriend Kaye Vassell and has stayed faithful to her now for over a year. Dappy claims that he made the decision to put an end to his cheating ways, as he felt it made him look weak and he found it stressful trying to win back Kaye every time.

Dappy explained, “All it does is make you look like a weak person, like you’re desperate to get more women because you need more attention. If I just gave myself to everyone, I’d lose my mystique – you can’t be available to f*** every Tom, Dick and Harry. I knew if I kept on going with these one-night flings, Kaye would leave me. It’s so much stress to get her back, all for a cheap thrill.”
 
Dappy also went on to say how he has stopped taking drugs for the sake of his two children, although he does admit that his past still inspires his music. Dappy added, “I’m fresh and I’m clean. I’ve got two kids. But if I had none of that past, I’d find myself boring. What would I have to rap about?” It was recently claimed by Dappy’s N-Dubz bandmate Fazer, that the band will be reuniting in the future.
N-Dubz reunion will still happen
N-Dubz reunion will still happen

It had seemed that the possibility of an N-Dubz reunion happening had been thrown out following the fact that none of the members of the band seem to be getting on. Tulisa and Fazer are not talking following their explosive break up and Dappy and Tulisa have not spoken in quite some time. However, Fazer has admitted that N-Dubz will still be getting back together for another album and a tour.

Fazer explained, “We are on hiatus, we’re all good. We are just taking some time out. In the last four or five years, I don’t think there has been a period for more than a month when we haven’t been on TV, had a video out, a single out, an album out, our own TV show – we’ve been dominating the TV and the media. The only thing for us is to keep our fanbase going and to keep people excited about the whole N-Dubz thing, so we thought take a break, give people a chance to breathe but at the same time, don’t give them a chance to breathe.
 
He added, “Tulisa has been killing it on The X Factor, Dappy has been killing it with his solo records and I’ll be doing the same this year, so it gives everyone a chance to capitalise on their own fanbases as well as the N-Dubz one. Then we will come back collectively next year to record another N-Dubz album.” Fazer also recently admitted that he was still working on Tulisa’s solo album, despite their break up.

Former N-Dubz singer Dappy has revealed how he and his former bandmate and cousin Tulisa Contostavlos are no longer talking. Dappy admitted that he misses Tulisa and hopes that one day the two of them can work out their differences, although an N-Dubz reunion certainly does not look likely to happen anytime in the near future.

Dappy explained, “We don’t talk anymore. It’s upsetting. I’d love to be able to hold her, cuddle her and give her a kiss again. Nah, it wasn’t jealousy. We just had to do our own thing. She’d boss me in her way and I wouldn’t like it. Poor Fazer was stuck in the middle. We both wanted to be the boss. We’re both very stubborn. We both weren’t having it. We were killing each other every day.” Dappy then discussed Tulisa and Fazer’s relationship.
 
He added, “Listen, with them two being a couple and me finding out about it properly, it didn’t feel like N-Dubz anymore. I’ll tell that to the world. I was glad that my best friend was the one with my cousin. But at the same time it felt like it was Tulisa and Fazer with Dappy. It didn’t feel like N-Dubz.”

Many fans of N-Dubz have blamed Tulisa Contostavlos and The X Factor for the bands split but Tulisa has now revealed that, that is not the case. Tulisa also admitted that N-Dubz will be getting back together in the future but fans will have to wait for a while yet.

Contostavlos explained, “Everyone thinks N-Dubz took a break because of the X Factor but it was already decided. On tour we started to have arguments and I wanted to say, ‘We need a break.’ Dappy ended up saying he wanted to go solo for a year. He did what I couldn’t say out of loyalty. Dappy and I don’t speak much at the minute. We haven’t fallen out, but we’re both working.”
 
She then spoke about a possible N-Dubz reunion, “All our success stems from N-Dubz. Our fans love us more as a goup than as individuals. But it’s a year and a half away, I would say.” Dappy has already enjoyed Number One success with his solo single No Regrets and Tulisa Contostavlos will be hoping to do the same, when she releases her debut solo single later in the year.
