X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been photographed having a laugh and a joke with The Wanted singer Max George, which led people to believe that the two of them were dating. However, Tulisa has denied that they are romantically involved, claiming that they are just good friends.
Tulisa told The X Factor website, “I'm not dating Max from The Wanted - he's just a mate! We were papped on a night out and it was built into this big love affair.” However, it seems that Tulisa does consider herself to be somewhat of an expert on the opposite sex and has given X Factor wannabe Ella Henderson some advice on boys.”
She added, “Ella is one of the purest souls I've ever met. She's an amazing talent, has a great work ethic and is amazingly grounded. She doesn't have a bad bone in her body. I find it a bit of a novelty seeing as I was the only girl in N-Dubz. I've been giving her advice about boys and relationships. I've told Ella to wait and make the boys chase after her.”
As well as being romantically linked to Max George, Tulisa Contostavlos has also been rumoured to be dating Shameless actor Jody Latham. Meanwhile, X Factor contestant Ella Henderson has been at the centre of a dating rumour with Union J’s George Shelley.
