Tulisa lawyers reportedly stop ex appearing on Big Brother

Part of the settlement one time N-Dubber Tulisa Contostavlos reached with former boyfriend Justin Edward, in relation to his publishing a sex tape featuring the couple, was that he was not allowed to appear in reality TV shows, according to The Sun.

As previously reported, the sex video surfaced online in March, via a website selling the six minute recording for $5.99 a download, but was quickly taken down after the singer and ‘X-Factor’ judge gained a court order. Edwards initially denied involvement, but later admitted responsibility in court in July. Details of the two parties’ subsequent settlement were not revealed at the time, though it seemingly included no financial payment to Tulisa.

The Sun reports that Tulisa’s lawyers recently became aware that producers of ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ had asked Edwards to take part in the next series, and got in touch with them to point out that he was prohibited from doing so.

A spokesman for Edwards did not comment directly on the claim but told The Sun that “reality TV is not his bag and it is not something he would want to do”.
