The 'Young' star admits she was left "devastated" by sex tape in her new book Honest: My Story So Far.

Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed that her former boyfriend ex-Skins star Jack O'Connell helped her overcome her sex tape ordeal.

An intimate video of the 'Young' singer with her former boyfriend Justin Edwards was published online earlier this year.

In her new book Honest: My Story So Far, the N-Dubz star speaks for the first time about the devastation and embarrassment she felt when the tape was leaked.

"It hit me like a train. I couldn't stop crying. It was like my whole world was ending," Tulisa said in an extract of her book, which has been serialised by The Sun.

"For the next few days, I wouldn't leave the flat. I spoke to PA Gareth and my lawyers, no one else. The thought of speaking to my family, my mum and dad, filled me with dread. So I retreated to the bathroom to curl up in a ball on the floor. I slept there for days like when I'd been upset when I was a kid."

Tulisa's autobiography

Tulisa admitted that she felt "petrified" about the possible impact the video could have on her role as a judge on The X Factor, but said Jack had helped her overcome the incident.

The singer, who has since split with the actor, said: "As soon as I saw him, everything started to feel better, easier. For the next three weeks he never left my side. And as time went on I started to feel stronger."

As well as releasing her autobiography this month, Tulisa is also preparing to unveil her debut album.
