Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed her assistant helps her choose potential boyfriends by chaperoning her dates.
The X Factor judge - who earlier this month said she felt "deeply betrayed" after a sex tape of her was leaked on the internet - told Radio 1's Chris Moyles that PA Gareth Varey supervises her when meeting potential suitors.
Tulisa said: "Gareth is a legend. He doesn't leave my side and supervises dates.
"If I started seeing a guy he'd be on the first four dates, we come as a package, he's just there."
The 23-year-old N-Dubz star revealed Gareth even helps her communicate with love interests.
She said: "Gareth sometimes reads my messages, he even replies.
"I only hang about with people I don't feel awkward around. I don't let many people into my circle."
Tulisa was recently linked to former Skins star Jack O'Connell, 21, after they were pictured together in an embrace on a hotel balcony.
