We can't help but feel as though new X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos was calling out to Cheryl Cole as she dedicated a song to 'the b*****d in your life' at a recent gig in Liverpool. Read on for a video of Tulisa performing her solo track 'Love Sick' alongside rapper Ny.
N-Dubz were performing at the O2 Academy earlier this week following the final X Factor auditions at the city's Echo Arena earlier this month. With a month off before The X Factor 2011 bootcamp starts on August 14, it looks as though Tulisa has been keeping an eye on the gossip involving Cheryl and Ashley.
After introducing her "sexy muffin" pal Ny to the stage, Tulisa tells the audience: "Excuse my French but ladies, but I need you to sing this to the b*****d in your life, as loud as you can."
A less than subtle call out to new BFF Chezza maybe, coming just a day after it's reported Cheryl's ex-husband Ashley was having flings at the same time he was trying to win her back.
In total, three girls have also claimed to have romps with the Chelsea star, with US lingerie model Jessyca Rayanne claiming Ashley wasn’t interested in getting back with Cheryl, she told a pal: “I asked him about his wife – he said he wasn’t interested in getting back with her.”
Comic Alan Carr joked about the situation: “Cheryl is reported to have said: ‘I’m done, delete my number.’ Which sounds more like what Ashley would have said moments after having sex with someone other than Cheryl.”
Unfortunately it was shortly after this performance that poor Tulisa got involved in a scrap with N-Dubz bandmate Dappy's on and off again lover, following claims Ny had been having an affair with him.
