An email which was planned to be sent to Tulisa Contostavlos prior to the leakage of her sex tape threatened the singer to either keep quiet and get 50% of the profit made from its release or get “f*ck all”, according to her lawyer Jonathan Coad…

Tulisa’s lawyers claim that the email was sent by Internet businessman Jim Deans to suspected co-conspirators Marino Franchi and Dennis Jared.

Tulisa is suing each of the men for £100,000 for breach of privacy.

Though he didn’t receive an email, Simon Cowell’s close friend and aide Chris Herbert is also being sued by the former N-Dubz singer for his involvement, according to the Sun.

However according to businessman Deans, the allegations made against him are “very much in doubt”.
