X Factor judge Louis Walsh has defended pal Tulisa after a sex tape of her was leaked on the internet.
Tulisa said she was left "heartbroken" and "betrayed" last week when ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards allegedly posted a clip of the pair of them online.
The six-minute video, taken some years ago, featured the X Factor star and the rapper backstage at a gig taking part in an "intimate moment".
Louis said this week: “I know the real Tulisa and she’s a very honest and loyal person
"I hate to see her getting hurt like this."
He added: “Unfortunately she’s learning the hard way that you can’t trust everyone."
Defending the singer, he went on: “Tulisa’s a really genuine person. She’s just very down-to-earth girl whose mother is from Churchtown in Dublin.
"The only mistake she made was trusting someone she thought was genuine too.”
