Tulisa bailed after drug arrest
Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been released on police bail following her arrest on suspicion of supplying class A drugs.
The 24-year-old singer, who found fame with N-Dubz, was arrested along with 35-year-old musician Mike GLC by appointment at a central London police station.
Their arrests came after the Metropolitan Police said its officers were ''considering'' information after a newspaper suggested Contostavlos had acted as a go-between in a drug deal by introducing a journalist to an alleged supplier.
The Sun On Sunday reported that half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the deal conducted at London's Dorchester Hotel.
After he was bailed, Mike GLC spoke outside Belgravia Police Station where he insisted the pair were innocent and denied he was a drug dealer.
The musician said: "We are innocent. We haven't been charged.
He added that any evidence caught on camera had been "taken out of context" and the duo were "set up".
"Anyone can edit or chop things together on video," he said. "The truth will come out in the end. I don't want to go into much more detail. I am going home to be with my family. This is ruining my life. I am not a drug dealer. I have never sold drugs in my life."
Contostavlos's spokesman declined to comment on the developments.
The singer was officially dropped as a judge on The X Factor just days ago, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.
