British hip-hop group N-DUBZ is facing yet another setback - singer TULISA 'TULA' CONTOSTAVLOS is to undergo surgery to remove a lump from her nose.
The band cancelled a string of performances over the summer (09) amid fears Contostavlos had contracted swine flu. She was also forced to rest up following a recent kidney infection, and the 21 year old will now be heading back to hospital for surgery on her nose.
She says, "I've had everything in the last couple of months. I had a kidney infection, and now this. I'm really scared about it."
No more details about Contostavlos' condition were available as WENN went to press.
The band was also mired in controversy last month (Oct09) after drummer Aaron Fagan was arrested in Scotland on suspicion of assaulting a female fan at a gig. He was held by cops overnight and subsequently released without charge.
