Tulisa denies alleged air incident
X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has taken to Twitter to set the record straight.
X Factor Tulisa Contostavlos isn't one to bite her tongue. So, when reports surfaced alleging she'd been in an 'altercation' with an air steward, Tulisa didn't hesitate to hop on Twitter to set the record straight.
Reports say she was believed to have been on a flight from London City's Airport when a steward asked her boyfriend and N-Dubz band mate, Fazer, to switch off his phone prior to landing. The Daily Mirror alleged Tulisa got angry with the steward, after they asked Fazer repeatedly to switch off his mobile.
However, Tulisa has set the record straight, Tweeting: "I completely deny that I was abusive to airline staff on our flight to Majorca a few weeks ago. My PA had a disagreement with staff over his mobile phone but I categorically did not swear at the steward. I'm disgusted that someone would make this up about me!"
The Metro quotes her lawyer as saying: "At no stage was our client abusive or foulmouthed towards any member of the crew during the course of the flight."
British Airways, the airline in question, released a statement saying: "British Airways has a record of an incident on a flight from London City to Palma, Majorca, involving two passengers using mobile phones.
"A lady in the party who wasn't using her phone was abusive towards the crew, telling them to leave her friends alone. BA takes a firm stance on the use of mobile phones. The incident was resolved by the cabin crew."
Meanwhile, singer Lily Allen took to Twitter this weekend to heap praise on Tulisa, writing: "I think Tulisa is doing such a good job #xfactor, I love her."
