Tulisa Contostavlos appears in court of drug charges

Wednesday April 23, 2014

Former The X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has appeared in court accused of being involved in a £860 cocaine deal.

The singer entered a plea of not guilty in December 2013 and on Tuesday she spoke only to confirm her name.

Tulisa and a friend, Mike GLC, real name Michael Coombs, were arrested in June after an undercover investigation by the Sun on Sunday.

The 25-year-old is accused of being "concerned with the supply of 13.9 grams of cocaine" to the newspaper’s undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood, known as the 'fake sheikh', between May 20 and May 24.

Judge Alistair McCreath released the pair on unconditional bail and ordered them to return to court on June 25 for another preliminary hearing.

They will stand trial on July 14.
