New X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has joked that she's keeping her distance from fellow judge Gary Barlow - in case people think they're having an affair! Speaking at yesterday's final London X Factor auditions at the O2, Tulisa added she had no problems with cosying up to Louis!
Tulisa laughed: “I do get on with Gary but I don’t think I could be as openly close to him as I am with Louis. People would talk!
“I am closest to Louis. I love him. He’s given me support from day one.”
Tulisa also described her support to pal Louis when he was falsely accused of groping another male in a night club toilet. The accuser, named as Leonard Watters, appeared in court late last month and was released on bail on charges of making a false statement and extortion.
"It was horrible. Some people out there are psychopaths," she said. “I knew he wouldn’t be capable of doing anything like that, it was ridiculous. I’m so glad now that it’s over and by the time we’re on screen no-one will be able to remember it.”
