The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised the Metropolitan Police Service to charge Tulisa Contostavlos, 25, with being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
This charge relates to an investigation by The Sun newspaper between early March 2013 and 23 May 2013 which resulted in the supply of Class A drugs to an investigative journalist.
We have determined that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that a prosecution is in the public interest.
Ms Contostavlos will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court on 19 December 2013.
