Tulisa Contostavlos denies assaulting blogger at V Festival


Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has denied assaulting a blogger backstage at V Festival.

Celebrity writer Vas Morgan says she charged towards him in a "drunken and angry state" on Sunday in Chelmsford.

A representative for Tulisa Contostavlos issued a statement saying: "Tulisa strongly denies assaulting Mr Morgan; she specifically denies punching Mr Morgan in the eye."

Essex Police said officers received an allegation of an assault on Tuesday.

A spokeswoman confirmed that the force was "making further inquiries".

The attack is said to have happened at the Essex site just after midnight on Sunday.

"[Tulisa] has placed this matter in the hands of her lawyers for immediate and appropriate action," said her spokesperson.

The N-Dubz star left The X Factor judging panel earlier this year and was replaced by Sharon Osbourne.

Recently Fazer, her N-Dubz co-star, said a band reunion depended on the success of his solo album.
