Spice Girls founder accused of trying to make money from the video
Just when we thought Tulisa's legal worries were behind her after she settle the court case surrounding the footage of her and her ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards, she now names Chris Herbert, who also managed Justin, as a defendant in her case against those leaking the video.
Tulisa's claiming that Chris - who had been hired by The X Factor - hoped to make £4 million pounds along with his accomplices by selling the footage of Tulisa and Justin.
Because of all the legal hoo-hah, The X Factor are said to have now 'relieved' Chris of his consultancy role.
A spokesman said: "As a result of us becoming aware of the ongoing legal dispute between Tulisa and Mr. Herbert, we have decided it is in everyone's interest for him to not be involved in the forthcoming series."
In court documents Tulisa's lawyer is said to allege that Mr. Herbert "played a pivotal role in commercial exploitation of the film". It has also been claimed he was "aware of, involved in and consulted" while the scheme to see the tape online was put together.
Sources claim that Simon Cowell had no involvement in hiring Chris to work on The X Factor, telling The Sun that "They have not worked together for a number of years. Simon was not aware of this legal issue."
Wow. That's all a bit serious. We're off to the kitchen to grab a biscuit and talk about boobs and stuff.
