Tulisa or Not Tulisa: Oral Sex Tape in Question
X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos got convolved in another controversy – this time over a video named NotTulisa showing her performing oral sex with an unidentified man. While following immediate backlashes from media handlers the video has been taken down, a cached version remains on the internet with the text “Not Tulisa and an ex-boyfriend recorded themselves having sex in a public place, shot backstage at a music gig, on his Blackberry.”
The description of the clip also reads that “This crystal-clear movie is in no way is a hidden camera! Just look at Not Tulisa playing to the camera, smiling and laughing … the naughty little minx!”
According to the singer, it’s a fake tape by a low-life. A spokesperson for Tulisa told the media “She is horrified that someone would go to the extreme lengths of fabricating a video. It is absolutely not her … Tulisa has categorically never allowed anyone to film her having sex.”
However, the seller, who claims to own property in Canary Wharf in London and drives a flash BMW, has asked for a bid of 500,000 pounds sterling for the clip.
It is pertinent to mention that similar attacks to leverage the star’s newly found popularity has precedents, and in August last year a comparable sex tape had surfaced claiming the singer “in a raunchy romp.” It has been refuted as cent per cent fake by the singer and her management.
The latest video was featured on several websites as soon as it hit the internet including a website called NotTulisa.
While fantasies do have a way of getting around, with the evolution of digital technologies it becomes more difficult everyday to separate fact from fiction in graphics and video. Special effects and 3d technology is no more within the confines of Hollywood, but experts with a personal computer can pull off feats that even a few years back would have been expected only from Pixar.
Whatever is the case, naughty videos of celebrities always garner public attention, and enough of them have been found true, making it difficult for viewers to disregard even unfounded claims.
The only thing that is sure is that even if it had been Tulisa, it is Not Tulisa.
