Tulisa Arrives At London Court To Face Drug Charges

Tulisa made her first appearance at Southwark Crown Court this morning to face the drugs charge made against her and her rapper friend, Mike GLC.

Accompanied by long-term PA Gareth Varney, the 25-year-old N-Dubz star made her way into the court dressed in a black ribbed poloneck, a black peplum biker jacket, a black skirt and boots for her ten-minute preliminary hearing.

Yesterday, the singer was seen visiting a beauty salon to get new hair extensions fitted in preparation for her first appearance before a judge, which she today wore loose around her shoulders.

The former X Factor judge is accused of helping to organise a cocaine deal worth £860 after an undercover reporter asked her to supply 13.9 grams of class A drugs last May.

Her official trial is set to start on July 14 – the day after her 27th birthday – and both Tulisa and Mike will be pleading not guilty to the charges.

Upon leaving court this morning, the British singer made no comment before jumping into a black Chrysler Grand Voyager. Her lawyer later told reporters that she is not guilty and ‘looking forward to giving her account to a jury’.

We’ll bring you more updates as we hear them.
