Tulisa Contostavlos was set to be offered a share of the profits from the private hardcore video she filmed with ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards.

Edwards recently admitted to leaking the video onto the internet and his alleged co-conspirators plotted to serve Contostavlos with an ultimatum, telling her she could either take a 50% share in the profits if she dropped her objections, or get “f**k all”.

Contostavlos is suing businessman Jim Deans along with Marino Franchi and Dennis Jared for £100,000 for breach of privacy.

In new documents filed at the High Court, the X Factor judge alleges Franchi and Jared discussed by email a script that would be read to her management once the video went public, according to The Sun.

Deans – who is accused of sending the email to the other men – has claimed that the evidence against him is “very much in doubt”.

Yesterday (18.07.12) it was revealed Contostavlos is suing Spice Girls founder Chris Herbert – who was not included in the alleged email – for trying to cash in on her sex tape.

She claimed Herbert – an X Factor consultant – hoped to make £4 million along with his accomplices by selling the footage.

As a result of the legal dispute, he has now been dropped by the ITV1 reality show.

A spokesman said: “As a result of us becoming aware of the ongoing legal dispute between Tulisa and Mr. Herbert, we have decided it is in everyone’s interest for him to not be involved in the forthcoming series.”
