Tulisa Contostavlos Denies Rift With Fellow X Factor Judge, Rita Ora

X Factor star Tulisa Contostavlos, who has been known to address rumours head-on with tweets from her Twitter account, once again took to the social media site to set the record straight about the relationship she has with singer, Rita Ora.

The former N-Dubz star wrote: ‘mags runin outa things 2 write so they talk bollocks n try n create rivalry between me n @RitaOra who I really get on with. pee off!’

The X Factor judge, who won the show last year with her act, Little Mix, then received support from her one-time co-judge and alleged rival Rita, who replied with a tweet telling Tulisa not to take the reports too seriously.

She wrote: ‘Just laugh! I had so much fun on X Factor! Its all good in the hood baby baby! #LOVE.’

Tulisa appeared comforted by Rita’s response, replying: ‘@ritaora I know babe, they’ll find any excuse! See ya soon! Nuff love xxx’.

Rita is just one of several female panellists to have taken up the position of the fourth X Factor judge this year, as show bosses search for a permanent replacement for Kelly Rowland, who worked on the ITV talent show for just one series.

Geri Halliwell, Nicole Scherzinger and Leona Lewis have also all graced the X Factor panel, which also includes Louis Walsh and Gary Barlow.

Former Spice Girl Mel B is the latest star to take up the position of guest judge, and it appears Tulisa is keen to prove she and Mel get on after the rumours about her relationship with Rita. She tweeted yesterday: ‘Having such a great day in manchester with @officialmelb @GBarlowOfficial and louis! Sum thing must be in the water, we can’t stop laughing!’

The X Factor auditions continue across the country this spring, ahead of the programme airing later this summer.
