Singer Tulisa Contostavlos was so distraught after a sex tape of her appeared online she slept on the floor for a week.
The X Factor judge and N-Dubz star took legal action after footage surfaced of her sharing an “intimate moment” with former boyfriend Justin Edwards, who denies posting the clip.
Contostavlos (23) said she was “devastated” by the tape's release and became a prisoner in her home.
In an interview with the Guardian she said: “I slept on the bathroom floor for seven days ... I just wouldn't go out of the house, couldn't sleep, didn't really want to eat anything.
“But I snapped out of it, I knew what I was doing, I knew in my head that I was depressed; I knew why.
“And I literally just woke up one morning, as happy as Larry, put on my best dress, make-up, full hair: ‘Ok, I'm going out'.”
