The 'Live It Up' star's autobiography Honest: My Story So Far has been serialised ahead of its release this week.
Tulisa Contostavlos has admitted that "nasty" Twitter remarks have often reduced her to tears.
The 'Live It Up' star made the comments during an interview with Saturday TV Magazine, in which she admitted the last year had taken its toll on her.
"Every now and again I'll shut myself away and cry," she said. "If there's something that's bothering me – like a load of nasty remarks on Twitter – sometimes crying can be the best release."
Meanwhile, in her forthcoming autobiography, Honest: My Story So Far, Tulisa discusses being the victim of an apparent sex attack when she was 16.
The extract from the star's book has been serialised by The Sun newspaper today (23rd September) and sees the 'Young' singer claim that her drinks were spiked before the incident took place.
Tulisa's new book Honest: My Story So Far sees the star open up about her life:
Speaking to Capital FM about the book last month, Tulisa said she expect a "backlash" when it is released later this week.
"I remember before I got famous I used to pick up these gossip mags and I used to find them intriguing and I used to believe what they were saying and I never once stopped to think how do they know this stuff? And the truth is 90% of the time they don't know, they're just making it up," she said.
Tulisa continued: "People do read it and they do believe this stuff and I use feel like there's this whole image of me just put out to the public in a way people imagine me to be and it's just a million miles away from who I am.
"I don't mind being judged, I picked this career path for myself so OK, judge me, but judge me on the truth and if you really want the truth you're gonna get more gossip from my truth than you will in a gossip magazine that makes stuff up."
Asked as to what the book will contain, she added: "There's raw, honest truth, there's goss, there's drama, there's just my life basically in a nutshell."
Tulisa is set to release her debut solo album later this year.
