Tulisa Cocaine Allegations Trial Date Set
Singer Tulisa Contostavlos will stand trial on a drugs charge the day after her 26th birthday, she was told yesterday.
She made her first appearance at London’s Southwark Crown Court accused of brokering a cocaine deal and was told that her trial is expected to take place on July 14.
The N-Dubz star is charged with helping an undercover reporter obtain 13.9g (0.5oz) of the Class A drug for £860.
She made no comment as she arrived at court wearing a black jacket and skirt and skycraper heels and wore her blonde hair loose.
She appeared alongside rapper Mike GLC, also known as Michael Coombs, 35, for a 10-minute preliminary hearing.
The pair spoke only to confirm their names and say that they understood the current timetable.
There will also be a case management hearing on March 27.
Former X Factor judge Contostavlos, of Friern Barnet, north London, denies being “concerned with the supply of 13.9 grams of cocaine” to Sun on Sunday undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood, known as the “fake sheikh”, between May 20 and May 24.
