Tulisa Arrives At Crown Court, Given Trial Date For Cocaine Charge (PICTURES)

Tulisa has made her first appearance at Crown Court after being accused of brokering a cocaine deal.

The N-Dubz star, 25, wore an all black outfit and stiletto-heeled boots as she arrived at Southwark Crown Court in London on Thursday.

It was announced she will stand trial on the drugs charge on July 14, the day after her 26th birthday.

The former 'X Factor' judge is charged with helping an undercover reporter obtain 13.9g (0.5oz) of the Class A drug for £860.

She appeared alongside rapper Mike GLC, also known as Michael Coombs, 35, for a 10-minute preliminary hearing.

The pair spoke only to confirm their names and say that they understood the current timetable.

There will also be a case management hearing on March 27.

Tulisa was initially arrested in connection with the incident with Michael on June 4.

She was officially dropped as a judge on 'X Factor' days before her arrest, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.
