Tulisa: 'I felt my life was over'

It just all got too much for me. I’m not going to sit here and want a pity party. It was a dark time, a very dark moment but I’ve got through it and I am here today.

Tulisa Contostavlos has told Good Morning Britain that she attempted to take her own life during her recent court ordeal.

Speaking to Charlotte Hawkins she said "Its been a really really hard year - the most difficult year of my life but at the same time I always try to tale a positive from a negative and its given me the kind of life experience that you can’t buy - that it takes some people ten years to gain. Its also made me a wiser person. Stronger.”

There are different levels of depression - when I got low, I got really really low. But I picked myself up quicker than most and got on with things the best I could. My lowest point was when I found out I was going to be officially charged. It had already been dragging on for so long. When I found out I was being charged I lost the faith.

Tulisa on her state of mind at the time

Extended interview

The Sun undertakes any investigation responsibly and the story will be subject to a series of legal checks before being published. In this case, the CPS felt there was sufficient evidence following our investigation to bring a prosecution. "Following the decision by the judge to halt the trial - on an issue relating to evidence given in court, rather than the investigation itself - Mr Mahmood was suspended immediately by The Sun. An internal investigation will be carried out. "This newspaper has a very strong history of journalistic investigations and campaigns, including those resulting in successful prosecutions. We will continue to undertake responsible investigative journalism in the public interest.
