Tulisa reveals sexual assault

In her new book, Honest, Tulisa Contostavlos recalls a time when she was sexually assaulted by a “friend” after being drugged at sixteen.

In her autobiography, which is being serialised by The Sun, Tulisa reveals that she was out with friends and she saw them putting pills in people’s drinks. She told them she didn’t want to be involved. Yet, as the evening progressed, she grew unusually drunk despite having a few drinks.

Tulisa recalls what she remembers following her being escorted outside, ‘The next thing I remembered was waking up. Lying in the back of a cab and seeing the street lights whizzing past me through the windows. I felt completely out of it, and I blacked out again.”

The next time she woke up, she found her “friend” having non-consensual sex with her.

“I couldn’t even move, let alone get up or speak, and once again I just blacked out. When I finally woke up in the morning I found myself in a strange house.”

“I went into the bathroom and burst into tears. Then I pulled myself together, got dressed, and left without saying another word, crying all the way home.”

The X Factor judge never reported the incident to the police because she felt embarrassed and ashamed. She told friends but cites her age and her confusion over what her friend had done as reasons for not reporting the crime.

Tulisa’s book, Honest: My Story So Far, comes out Thursday.
