A source told MailOnline that the accident happened when Varey was pushed by a paparazzi, and fell in front of the car.
Before the incident happened, Varey and Tulisa had been enjoying a fun-filled night out at Mahiki alongside British boyband The Wanted.
The evening is sure to spark more speculation about the status of the relationship between Tulisa and Wanted singer Max George.
The pair first fuelled rumours that they are more then friends when they were seen out on a night together in Los Angeles in April.

However, it is unlikely now that Tulisa and Max are in a relationship, as she is reported to be dating Shameless actor Jody Latham.
