Tulisa Will Quit Showbiz For Family, Says Dad

Tulisa Contostavlos wants to quit showbiz to settle down and have a family, according to her dad.

Plato Contostavlos says his 23-year-old daughter would give up her singing and role on The X Factor if she found the right man to father her children.

The 53-year-old told The Mirror: "I can see her disappearing out of the public eye so she can concentrate on being a good mum when the time is right and she has made a bit more money. She's told me she wants to make a 'nest' and have a happy family more than anything else. Family is the most important thing to her."

Plato, once the keyboard player in hit Seventies band Mungo Jerry, says Tulisa was left devastated when her sex video was leaked on the internet and says she has a habit of going out with the wrong type of men.

But the good news is that she seems to be happy with new boyfriend Jack O'Connell.

He says: "She really likes Jack. She told me, 'He is a really nice, down-to-earth boy' and I think that is what she likes about him. She is really happy with him."
