Tulisa Contostavlos charged with drink driving and dangerous driving after Ferrari smash outside Southgate Tube



Former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been charged with drink driving and dangerous driving, following an incident outside Southgate Tube station last September.

The 27-year-old singer was allegedly driving a Ferrari outside the north London station on September 10 when it collided with an elderly couple’s Saab.

Tulisa had picked up the £199,000 car just days before the collision, which happened just before midnight.

If convicted for drink driving, Tulisa could be banned from driving for up to a year, while dangerous driving carries an obligatory minimum one year ban, and if convicted Tulisa could also be ordered to take her driving test again.

Serious drink driving offences can also carry a prison sentence of up to two years, while those convicted of dangerous driving can face up to two years in prison.

The singer is due to appear in court to face the charges on Monday.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “A woman has been charged with driving offences following a collision on September 10, 2015 outside Southgate Underground Station.

“Tulisa Contostavlos, 27, of Enfield was charged on Monday, March 7 with drink driving and dangerous driving.

“She was bailed to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on Monday, April 4.”

Tulisa has been working on new material this year, with X-Factor’s 2010 runner-up Rebecca Ferguson.
