Tulisa Contostavlos' lawyer Ben Rose has said she would be denying the charge and claimed she joined a line of celebrities who had had been used as "fodder by greedy newspapers".
Tulisa has been charged with a serious criminal offence to which she will plead not guilty.
This case is not simply about drug supply. It is about the limits which we set on the conduct of journalists.
The media have rightly been criticised in recent years for gross invasion into the private life of others.
Tulisa is the latest in a long line of people who have been treated as fodder by greedy newspapers.
This was a deliberate attempt to target a young woman who is all the more vulnerable because of her celebrity status.
In due course Tulisa will give a full answer to these allegations in court.
