Tulisa - Tulisa gives up battling for sex tape damages

Tulisa has reportedly given up claiming damages over her leaked sex tape.

The former 'X Factor' judge has decided against battling ex-boyfriend MC Ultra, aka Justin Edwards - who admitted leaking X-rated footage of her giving him oral sex onto the internet - to avoid more lawyers' fees after she was left with an estimated legal bill of more than £270,000.

The 24-year-old star - who was arrested on Tuesday (04.06.13) on suspicion of supplying cocaine - had also been suing five other men who plotted to cash in on the tape for £100,000, but her spokesman told The Sun newspaper she is hoping to get the ''lion's share'' of the money back by pursuing owners of websites the clip appeared on.

He also insisted it had been worth taking Edwards - who received just £23 in total from six people who paid to download the footage - to court because those involved had been left ''publicly humiliated''.

By avoiding going to court again Tulisa has missed out on an estimated £806,000 legal bill and she will not have to deal with details of her sex life being raked over by the public.

Tulisa was bailed yesterday (05.06.13) along with her friend Mike GLC after the pair were arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs following a taped investigation by an undercover reporter.

While Mike insists the pair are innocent, claiming the footage has been ''taken out of context'', insiders say Tulisa has done little but chain smoke since Sunday's revelations.

A source told the publication: ''Nobody has seen her this low before. A possible jail sentence and end to her career if she is found guilty is killing her.

''She's strong, but it will take a lot to get her through this.

''Tulisa just sits in one chair downstairs all day and night, rocking back and forth saying, 'My life is over'.''
