More shocking details have been reported about the now collapsed Tulisa trial.
It has been revealed that the ‘fake Sheikh’ involved in the Tulisa trial tried to convince her to have sex with him in exchange for a film role.
Court documentation also says that they plied the former X Factor judge with alcohol so much so that her PA Gareth Varey believes he was spiked.
Tulisa’s fears were printed in a pretrial hearing which can only now be reported since the trial collapsed.
Mazher Mahmood posed as a Bollywood film director called Samir who claimed he could ‘win Tulisa an Oscar’ for a part in a film with Leonardo DiCaprio.
In the documents Tulisa’s barrister stated how last May Tulisa met the undercover reporters at London’s Metropolitan Hotel where she spent six hours drinking with them.
The court document stated: “Throughout the evening, Samir and his team were plying TC and her companions with alcohol, in particular Mojitos and Platinum tequila shots.”
“Samir commented on the expensive drinks he was ordering, but encouraged TC and her party to drink.”
“He and his associate were, unbeknown to TC, not in fact consuming alcohol; all the while they were cajoling and persuading [their] victims to drink so much they became intoxicated.”
“As a consequence of drink, the events of the evening have become blurred for TC.”
The document continued: “In the thick of these events, TC was accompanied to the lavatory by Nish. There, Nish told TC that she could expect a fee of £3.5m for her part in the film.”
“Nish pretended that she really wanted TC to get the part and commented that TC needed to show she was suitable for the role. Nish said words to the effect that TC should remember her past.”
“This was highly manipulative conduct designed to lure TC into further drug-related talk and activity, while creating an enormous financial incentive for her to do so.”
“TC responded to Samir’s luring and ‘egging on’ by talking further about cocaine, believing that this was what Samir wanted to hear, she hoped to increase her prospect of securing the part by doing so, and believed she could.”
“TC’s talk of involvement and connection with cocaine was similarly made up by her, but well received by Samir.”
“This was done to please the film-makers, to increase her prospects, not because it was true.”
The Sun reporter went on to talk about “liking white girls” before it was suggested that she should go to his room alone.
The document stated: “Again, TC perceived that sex for payment was being suggested. She declined the offer.”
“Later in the evening one of her companions passed out on the bathroom floor of the hotel room, while her personal assistant did not get up until 3.30pm the following day.”
“TC has concluded, in view of the extreme and unpleasant reaction she, GV and Michelle experience, that the drinks of all three of them must have been spiked,” the document stated.
Mr Mahmood has been suspended pending an immediate internal investigation.
