X Factor 2012: Tulisa and her PA involved in head butting brawl at airport

Trouble seems to be X Factor judge Tulisa’s middle name of late, and no matter how much she tries to keep her head down, negative publicity follows her around like a bad smell…

And over the weekend, yet more of that occurred when the police were called to an incident which saw Tulisa’s PA allegedly being head butted by an irate fellow passenger.

The incident began when Tulisa – allegedly – ranted loudly and uttered a string of four-letter words about a rather unflattering photograph of herself that she saw in a magazine.

A passerby then reportedly berated her for her foul language, prompting her PA, Gareth Varey, to yell at the man, “Who the hell do you think you are talking to?”

According to The Sun, the unnamed man then gave Gareth a “Glasgow kiss” which left him bleeding profusely.

The paper adds that Tulisa then rowed with the airport’s security guards, saying, “If he gets on the flight he’s going to fight, which we don’t want at 30,000 feet…”

Strathclyde Police confirmed last night, “We were called to a minor incident at Glasgow Airport between two people. There will be no further action.”

Tulisa and Gareth have been close friends for years, and he even has her name tattooed on his ankle.

During a recent visit to LA, Tulisa tweeted, “Me n @GarethVarey r bored in our hotel room…what madness could we get up 2 2nit 2 entertain ourselves? Hmmmmm…”

Fingers crossed that any ensuing “madness” didn’t involve a mobile phone or other video recording equipment.
