Former X Factor contestant Rebecca Ferguson has revealed how she has had well over £100,00 stolen from her, since become big off the back of the hit ITV series. Rebecca says that she was naïve and put a lot of her trust in the wrong people, who clearly could not be trusted.
Ferguson told the Daily Record, "I put too much trust in people and for that reason they took advantage of me. I had money, well over £100,000, stolen from me from people I trusted who sought to gain from me. It's really disgusting. It's the betrayal."
She has admitted that the ordeal has now taught her a valuable lesson, adding, "I think they spent it. I think I was so naïve to the world but I feel I have become a woman now and am more aware of what goes on in the world. Not everyone is good."
As well as appearing on The X Factor and having a relatively successful music career to date, Rebecca Ferguson is probably best known for being the ex-girlfriend of One Direction hunk Zayn Malik. The two met on The X Factor and had a brief relationship, before deciding to go their separate ways.
