Tulisa Contostavlos must be so relieved!
In June 2013, Tulisa was arrested and charged for attempting to sell cocaine to an undercover cop posing as a film producer. Sadly, though not surprisingly, Tulisa was fired from her gig as a judge on the U.K. version of X Factor.
Now things are looking up for Tulisa! A judge recently declared the main witness in the case, Mazher Mahmooda, a former reporter for The Sun, had lied and no longer has any credibility.
The judge said:
"There are strong grounds for believing that Mr Mahmood told me lies when he gave evidence. The case cannot go any further."
Mahoomd has a long history of orchestrating unethical celebrity 'entrapment' and he was even accused of tampering with a witness on Tulisa's defense team!!
In response to the dropped charges, Tulisa said:
"I have not been able to work for a year and I'm now looking forward to resuming my career. I will use these experiences to make me stronger. I would like to thank all the people who have supported me through this terrible ordeal, including my fans and, of course, my legal team."
Well, while this whole thing is just AWFUL, we hope Tuilsa will be able to find success after this whole ordeal!!
