Tulisa Contostavlos was put on suicide watch by her manager after newspaper reports that she had been involved in a drug deal.

Jonathan Shalit, who represents some of the country’s biggest stars, said the singer had also been targeted by “horrific abuse” online.

He told the Edinburgh television festival on Friday: “She got to the point I was worried she would commit suicide”.

He said: “I made sure that someone was at her house for two consecutive nights to make sure she did nothing stupid, because she was literally at that point of she genuinely thought her life was over.”

The singer is currently on bail to late October following her arrest over claims she acted as a go-between in a drug deal.

In 2011, Luke Lucas audition for the British talent competition show X-Factor at the age of 16. He blew the judges away with his amazing vocals when he sung the Jackson 5 song ” Who’s Loving You”.

 

Later, Lucas was turned away at the finals, according to the Daily Mail article,  ‘he went up to sing in front of Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow, the likeable teenager was already close to tears, hyped up and telling us:

 

‘I can’t believe how much I want this. But as soon as Luke opened his mouth to sing, it was clear his timing was out and he was completely flat’.

 

At the time, X-Factor felt that 16 was too young to be in a talent competition.

 

As time has passed since then, where is this amazing voice? Just because he didn’t make it on X-Factor, doesn’t mean he can’t make it in music. He was probably nervous and wanted to make the finals so bad that the competition got the best of him.

According to The London Standard,  Simon Cowell claims a band in the UK had the name “One Direction” first.  In the suit, which was filed on Thursday, it was claimed the US group have been “continuously and consistently been utilising the One Direction Mark since ODUK made its public debut on the popular British television programme The X Factor in the fall of 2010.”

 

The US One Direction had claimed to have been using the name since 2009 and applied to trademark the name long before the British band, and are also suing Syco and Sony Music for $1 million in damages, as well as claiming they are entitled to profits made by the UK group, arguing they were suffering “substantial confusion and substantial damage” because of the British act.

“No, I am not [currently a judge on ‘The X Factor’], but that’s all I really think I should say,” Jackson says in a clip from the interview.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, singer Pink is also in the running.
