The X Factor creator Simon Cowell has spoken out in defence of X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos in the wake of the recent Tulisa sex tape saga. Simon has admitted that he does not believe that Tulisa needed to apologise for the sex tape, as she did nothing wrong.
Cowell explained, "Tulisa doesn't have to apologise for anything. The only person who has to apologise is the scumbag who sold the tape. It's private. It's intimate and she did nothing wrong. People do these things in the bedroom believe it or not. I feel very sorry for her. He's a scumbag and I feel very very angry about this."
Simon also admitted that the Tulisa sex tape saga would not affect her chances of returning for another season of The X Factor. Cowell stated that, while it is very embarrassing for Tulisa, it is not illegal and if he was to sack her, he would be giving scumbags everywhere the belief that they could ruin other people’s lives.
The Tulisa sex tape appeared online earlier this week and while there were suggestions that it was Tulisa and her ex N-Dubz boyfriend Fazer, Tulisa later confirmed that it was actually her and her ex Justin Edwards aka Ultra.
