Tulisa’s shock at mum-in-law’s tell-all book

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TROU­BLED X Fac­tor star Tulisa Con­tostav­los has been dealt an­other blow – her step­mum is writ­ing a tell-all book about her.

Tulisa, 24, who was left shat­tered two weeks ago when a sex tape of her and ex-boyfriend Justin Ed­wards came out, has been be­trayed again by step-mum Me­lanie Von­drau.

She’s set to lift the lid on Tulisa’s self­harm­ing and in­volve­ment in gang cul­ture in a book called Phoenix Ris­ing, due out later this year.

Me­lanie, 39, who was mar­ried to Tulisa’s dad Plato, 52, for 10 years be­fore their di­vorce in 2009, is said to be ap­palled by her sex tape and this is why she’s turned on her.

A friend of the N-dubz babe said: “Tulisa is as­ton­ished Me­lanie is do­ing this. It’s dis­gust­ing for her to cash in on her mis­ery.”

Tulisa ad­mit­ted in a BBC3 pro­gramme Tulisa: My Mum and Me that she self-harmed for two years as she strug­gled to cope with her mum Ann’s men­tal ill­ness as a teenager.

She said: “I’ve self­harmed. I want to help, but it stresses me out.”
