Tulisa reveals the truth behind cosmetic work rumours

There has been a LOT of buzz around Tulisa Contostavlos’s appearance lately, and whether or not she’s had any cosmetic work done to her face.

And now the former X Factor judge has opened up about the rumours, admitting that she DID have work done.

Tulisa says that she never denied that she had work done, because she'd not given an interview in the last year to do so.

She then went on to admit she has had cosmetic enhancement.

“Yes, I’ve had my lips done, and I’m happy with my lips. And I also had a tiny bit of filler in my cheeks,” she said. “Pictures of me where my face was swelling. I had water retention – where you have filler your face draws up a load of water. So my face began to swell like a balloon.”

“It really bugs me when people say I’ve had a nose job. That’s just makeup,” she said.

The singer said she made the decision to get the work done after losing a “load of weight”.

"So losing a stone, filler in my cheeks, my lips done and the contouring – and people do think, oh gosh, you so different,” she says.

But Tulisa says that she’s “happy with it”.

Asked if her Female Boss was still an accurate tattoo, she said, “More than ever. I've surprised myself. I feel stronger, wiser – enlightened. I feel I've had 10 years worth of my life lessons in one year, and money can’t buy that.”

We’re really glad you’re feeling more like yourself Tulisa!
