Tulisa has dismissed rumours that she has been fired from the X Factor, stating that she would love to return to the show for her third year.
Talking to the Sunday People, Tulisa admitted that although last year’s series was tough on her she would love nothing more than to return again.
She said: “I haven’t been axed from ‘The X Factor’. I love the show, I’d always want to do it. Last year was much harder than my first series but I did enjoy it.
“I’ve contacted Simon and had dinner with show producer Richard Holloway and his wife a couple of weeks ago.
“We’re all friends and I’ve not been told that I won’t be going back.”
She also cleared up rumours that she had fallen out with Simon Cowell and Gary Barlow.
Tulisa explained: “I’m realistic. If Simon had called to say I was sacked, I’d say. If there were issues, I’d say.
“I love speaking the truth as I feel like nobody else does it. I’m not one to hold back. Simon and I are cool with each other, it doesn’t all go as deep as people think.
“Gary and I had our on-screen spats but we’d come off the stage and it would be cool. There weren’t really any spats backstage.”
Tulisa also confirmed that she is currently in the process of suing will.i.am for what she claims to be her lyrics in his hit song ‘Scream & Shout’.
She admitted: “Yes, I am in the process of suing him. When I saw the song get massive, I thought, ‘story of my life’. That’s how it is for me.”
