Tulisa Accepts Five-Figure Sum After TNT Wrongfully Published Sex Tape Stills

Tulisa finally has some good news to celebrate - the former 'X Factor' judge has been awarded a six figure sum over the wrongful publication of stills from her sex tape.

Website TNT was forced to pay out £42,500 pounds to the N-Dubz singer after they broke an injunction banning the x-rated footage from being published.

While the publisher took down the pictures as soon as they realised there was an injunction in place, the post had already received over 9000 hits.

The settlement emerged during a High Court hearing in London regarding the legal costs involved in the breach of privacy proceedings Tulisa brought about in March last year, following the tape's leak.

Tulisa won an official apology from ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards for leaking the tape, in a court case last July.

Her solicitor Jonathan Coad told the High Court at the time that the invasion of her privacy ''was of the most severe kind imaginable''.
