Tulisa sex tape: Singer reveals she 'couldn't sleep' after tape was leaked

X Factor judge Tulisa has opened up about her sex tape for the first time, revealing how she couldn't sleep after it was posted online.

The 23-year-old hit the headlines last month after a six-minute clip of her and ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards stormed social media websites.

The youngster is currently suing Justin for supposedly leaking the clip, a claim which he denies.

In an interview with The Guardian this week, N-Dubz star Tulisa revealed how she "slept on the bathroom floor for seven days" after news of the sex tape leak broke.

She explained: "I just wouldn't go out of the house. Couldn't sleep. Didn't really want to eat anything.

"But I snapped out of it. I knew what I was doing. I knew in my head that I was depressed; I knew why I was depressed. It was all logical. I didn't want to smile. I didn't want to be happy...It was like a level of mourning, do you know what I mean?

"I needed to have my tears and tantrums, my bad moods, and get myself into a state to come back out of it. And I literally just woke up one morning as happy as Larry, put on my best dress, makeup, full hair: 'OK, I'm going out.'"

Tulisa hit back in a video of her own shortly after the tape spread across the web, and recently said she didn't regret it.

Fortunately for the young singer, the scandal hasn't ruined her career, as she confirmed this week she would be back on [cat]The X Factor[/cat] next month.
