N-Dubz star / former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos and rapper Mike GLC (real name Michael Coombs) both appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today. Both deny supplying Class A drugs.

Via The Daily Mail

The court heard how the charge relates to 13.9g of cocaine – dubbed ‘white sweets’ by Tulisa as a codename for the powder when talking to Mr Mahmood.

‘On the 28 March, Mazher Mahmood met Tulisa under the pretence of her playing a role in a forthcoming film.

‘There was no reference to drugs in that meeting. He again met her later on 10 May at a hotel in London.

‘During the course of the conversation, Tulisa offered to supply cannabis and then cocaine to Mr Mahmood.

‘She said she would use a code over the telephone, referring to cocaine as white sweets.

‘There was a series of recorded phonecalls. 

‘On 21 May, Mr Mahmood called Tulisa and said he would be in London and could she get him white sweets and she confirmed she could.

‘On 22 May, she arranged a table at a club called Whites.

‘She then said she would text Mr Mahmood a number of a good friend of hers who would provide her with the sweets.

‘That was the last contact he had with Tulisa. He then telephoned the number provided and spoke to a gentleman called Mr Coombs.’

The court heard that Coombs arranged to meet the journalist to supply the cocaine at the Dorchester hotel, where the meeting was covertly recorded.

Committing the case to trial at Southwark Crown Court, District Judge Howard Riddle said: ‘This matter is not suitable for a summary trial and is too serious to be dealt with at the magistrates’ court and will be sent to the Crown court.’

Coombs, who wore a blue jumper and black jeans to attend court, is accused of supplying the drug on 23 May.

The pair, who were given unconditional bail by Mr Riddle, will next appear at Southwark Crown Court in central London on 14 January.

CPS London chief Crown prosecutor Baljit Ubhey said: ‘We have determined that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that a prosecution is in the public interest.’

Hmmmmmmm. I see Tulisa’s “trusted” personal assistant Gareth Varey was all up in the mix again today. That man never seems to leave her side.

All I can do is shake my head and say good luck.

    Looking at the alleged facts, with them both pleading not guilty I suspect this could get very messy…

    I agree this is going to get very messy. I look forward to hearing what Mike’s defence team’s argument will be…

    @She-talks it will be interesting to hear their defence. I dont know how they are going to explain away the audio and video footage, they can hardly claim “hear say” as a defence. They should have plead “guilty”

    ‘On the 28 March, Mazher Mahmood met Tulisa under the pretence of her playing a role in a forthcoming film.’
    They should consult a lawyer about a countersuit, even if they lose their part.

    I can imagine Mr. Mahmoud seated there, rubbing his hands and fat pockets with glee, grinning like a Cheshire cat.

    He should go and do some undercover work, investigating the rotten meats sold by Asians to poor people.

    Anyways, I don’t see Tulisa getting heavy punishment because she was the middle woman. Pointing in the right direction. Mike on the other hand, I don’t know. But hey, they have to live with the consequences of their actions.
