Tulisa Contostavlos appeared in Westminster Magistrates Court today, pleading 'not guilty' after being charged with the supply of Class A drugs.

The former X Factor judge, 25, was arrested back in June after she was allegedly involved in arranging a cocaine deal worth more than £800, in a suite at the London's Dorchester Hotel.

The singer denies the charges and her lawyer Ben Rose says she will continue to plead 'not guilty' to the charges.

Whilst speaking to The Sun's undercover reporter, the singer supposedly boasted about half of her phone contacts selling drugs and nicknamed illegal drugs as "sweets".

However, her lawyer says the entire case has been 'manufactured' by the newspapers, and that the police can not 'rely' on the work of investigative journalists.

"This case is not simply about drug supply. It is about the limits which we set on the conduct of journalists," Rose said in a statement.

"The media have rightly been criticised in recent years for the 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," the statement continues.

Tulisa will next appear before Southwark Crown Court on 9 January 2014.
