Tulisa Contostavlos was put on suicide watch by her manager after her arrest in June.
Her manager, Jonathan Shalit revealed that he feared for the former X Factor judge.
Speaking at the Edinburgh Festival he said, "She got to the point I was worried she would commit suicide."
"I made sure that someone was at her house for two consecutive nights to make sure she did nothing stupid, because she was literally at that point of she genuinely thought her life was over."
Jonathan said that Tulisa was targeted by "horrific abuse" on-line after newspaper reports that she'd been involved in an £800 drug deal.
The singer was arrested in June with her friend, rapper Mike GLC, but she's currently on bail until October.
She's proving to be on the track to getting her life back on track. Check out these pics of her in Ibiza...
