Tulisa released on police bail after drug arrest

Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos arrived home in Hertfordshire today following her arrest on suspicion of supplying class A drugs. The 24-year-old singer was released on police bail with 35-year-old musician Mike GLC.

The arrests came after the Met Police said officers were considering information after a newspaper suggested Contostavlos had acted as a go-between in a drug deal.

Appeared outside Belgravia Police Station after being bailed, Mike GLC insisted the pair were innocent and denied he was a drug dealer.

We are innocent. We haven't been charged. Anyone can edit or chop things together on video," he said. The truth will come out in the end.

I don't want to go into much more detail. I am going home to be with my family. This is ruining my life. I am not a drug dealer.

I have never sold drugs in my life.

– Mike GLC

He added that any evidence caught on camera had been "taken out of context" and the duo were "set up".
