X Factor’s Tulisa fears her ex may release more sex tapes

Though he hasn’t admitted that he was responsible for selling sex tapes of himself and Tulisa engaged in a sex act, it’s been widely speculated in the media that Justin Edwards, aka MC Ultra, did in fact sell the explicit content…

And it seems that now, Tulisa fears there are other sex tapes that feature her which may surface in the wake of the hoorhar caused by this one.

Telling friends that she’s in a “very dark place”, Tulisa fears that Edwards may be using the scandal as a means to re-launch his music career, using that old adage about no such thing as bad publicity.

And she could well be right; since the debacle hit the headlines, Edwards has attracted thousands of Twitter followers.

A source close to Tulisa told the Daily Star, “People like Justin think Tulisa has sold out by going on X Factor and becoming a glamour girl…

“If he tells his story she will not come off well. She has a lot of skeletons in the closet.”

Another source added, “It seems a big coincidence that it hits the web as Justin is relaunching his music career.

“He used to support N-Dubz on tour, then he got dumped by his record label, and his girlfriend Tulisa became a megastar. It didn’t sit well with him.”

Meanwhile, Edwards’ former manager Tim Ferrone has defended the DJ, claiming he’d be “shocked” if it was the case the Edwards deliberately leaked such footage.

The Daily Mail quotes Ferrone as saying, “He was always adamant he would never talk about Tulisa in interviews.

“He wanted to become a star in his own right. If this is true it is a shock.”

In her video confession about the tape, Tulisa said, “About six months ago I got calls from a lot of mutual friends telling me that he had this footage of me that was threatening to bring out for whatever reason – to make money or ruin my career.

“I confronted him and he lied about it, he completely denied it. Now here we are today, and the footage is now circulating online.

“As you can imagine, I’m devastated. I’m heartbroken, I’ve been in bits for the last few days.

“When you share an intimate moment with someone you love, that you care about and trust, you never imagine that at any point it will be shared with the rest of the UK or people around the world.

“It’s a pretty tough time for me, but I don’t feel I should be the one to take the heat for it.

”This is something he took upon himself to put the footage online, and now he’s sitting in silence and pretending that it’s not him on the tape when it is.

“I’m not going sit here and be violated or taken advantage of. It’s out now, there is nothing I can do about it, but I felt I needed to tell my side of the story.”

On the day the sex tape was leaked, Edwards tweeted, “I didn’t wanna say anything on the subject but I see peoples imagination running away.. it’s nothing to do with me. #backtowork.”
