Tula Paulinea Contostavlos, better known by her stage name of Tulisa, was born in Camden Town, London.

The 32-year-old joined N-Dubz after her cousin Dappy and friend Fazer started rapping together and were looking for a female voice.

Tulisa went onto replace Cheryl Cole as a judge on The X Factor in 2011 and led the Groups including Little Mix.

She recorded her solo album, The Female Boss, in 2012, before she released her autobiography, Honest: My Story So Far.

In 2017 it was revealed that Tulisa was dating Cher’s music producer nephew David King.

And in 2019 Tulisa released a song titled Daddy after signing a contract with Xploded Music and she co-wrote and produced the hit with David.

Last year Tulisa revealed she suffers from Bell’s Palsy during an appearance on Loose Women.

Speaking to panellists Andrea McLean, Linda Robson, Denise Welch and Jane Moore, the former N-Dubz star said: "I do suffer from Bell's palsy, one side of my face can drop down.

"I think the first attack I had was after a serious horse riding accident and I fractured my skull and it caused a lot of nerve damage and the Bell's palsy can cause facial paralysis, it can cause swelling.

"There's actually been times when people have criticised me for the way I look and my face and I'm actually going through a Bell's palsy attack.

"I remember it was an ITV appearance one time and I saw an online comment like: 'Her face looks like she's had a stroke', and that can be the effects of Bell's palsy.


Costadinos Contostavlos, better known as Dappy, is the lead singer of N-Dubz and was known for his trademark hats with ear flaps.

After the band went on a break in 2011, the 33-year-old embarked on a solo career and starred as a guest artist on Tinchy Stryder’s single Spaceship in 2011.

The Celebrity Big Brother star was contacted by the N-Dubz agency and re-recorded No Regrets with a cameo appearance by Fazer which topped the UK charts at number one in 2011.

The rapper shares two sons with his ex Kaye Vassell, Milo, 10, and Gino, 12.

He has 294,000 Instagram followers and is doing a UK tour in May following the release of Intro.


Richard Rawson, better known as Fazer, was brought up in Camden Town and met Dappy at karate classes before they started N-Dubz.

In 2013 Fazer and his production partner Peter Ibsen announced their new production company Sky's The Limit Entertainment.

The following year, Fazer revealed he would be releasing music under his real name Richard Rawson and in July 2014 he released his single Fireflies with accompanying vocals by The Wanted’s Tom Parker.

After splitting from bandmate Tulisa in 2012, Fazer went on to have a baby girl with model girlfriend Ashley Emma.

The couple welcomed Ava Rose Rawson in 2013.
