It's fair to say it's not been a great twelve months from Tulisa, starting the year with a split from her long term boyfriend.

Her sex tape scandal followed and then there was THAT performance on Britain's Got Talent, arguably a bigger scandal than the tape.

The singer released her debut solo album which scraped the Top 40 on Sunday night, after being ripped apart by music critics..

More recently, Tulisa's love life has once again been all over the front pages too, and it's all led the N-Dubz star to declare: "This has been the worst year of my life. It been horrid."

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Tulisa admitted that the flack she attracts has been hard to deal with.

She explained: "I'm devastated. People only see me ranting and defending myself. They don't see me crying my eyes out over what's been said.

"I do feel very vulnerable at the moment."

Sources say that Tulisa is now hoping to move on and start a fresh in the new year.

On insider commented: "Tuisa has had a rotten few weeks and it feels like everyone has had it in for her.

"She badly needs a break and says the end of the show could not have come soon enough. She feels like a failure."
