Tulisa Contostavlos 'Relieved' By Public Reaction After Sex Tape Leak

Tulisa Contostavlos is getting over her sex tape heartbreak thanks to the sympathetic attitude of the public.

The singer was devastated when a clip of her sharing an "intimate moment" with her ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards hit the net and she was convinced the scandal would end her career.

In a new interview with funnyman Alan Carr, Tulisa admits she feared the public would turn on following the leak: "I'm thinking, 'Oh God, my career could be over - the whole UK thinks I'm a s**pper.' I have been surprised by how nice everyone has been. I haven't done anything wrong, so any normal person would be like, 'She's human'."

Tulisa adds on the show, which will be aired on Friday: "I would hardly call it a sex tape. Number one, there was no sex involved. Number two, a 19 year old who's just starting to learn and her boyfriend pulls out a camera, doesn't really class as a sex tape.

"Everyone does it. Such a big deal has been made out of it that I feel like a b**ody alien."

Tulisa also revealed that her grandmother in Greece still doesn't know about the explicit footage.
