The former boyfriend of Tulisa Contostavlos, Justin Edwards, aka rapper MC Ultra, has admitted to publishing a sex tape featuring the couple online earlier this year.

As previously reported, the video featuring the former N-Dubz singer surfaced online in March, via a website selling the six minute recording for $5.99 a download. However, the video was quickly taken offline after lawyers for the ‘X-Factor’ judge gained a court order against the London company operating the website that was distributing the footage.

Although, when rumours of a sex tape first surfaced last year Contostavlos’s legal reps issued a statement saying that the video was “100% fake”, after the actual recording went online Tulisa issued a statement of her own via YouTube admitting that it was real, adding that it was Edwards who had filmed it, and who had probably uploaded it too.

Constavlos then launched a lawsuit against Edwards and a number of other defendants. The singer’s ex initially denied responsibility, claiming that making such a video publicly available was “ungentlemanly”. However, according to The Telegraph, at a hearing yesterday his lawyer read out a statement saying: ”Mr Edwards has admitted responsibility for publication of the video, apologised for it, and promised not to do it again”.

A further hearing is due to take place this Thursday, at which Contostavlos’ lawyers will confirm to Judge Michael Tugendhat details of a settlement with Edwards.
