Shocking: Tulisa has revealed that she was drugged and sexually attacked at the age of 16

For the first time ever Tulisa Contostavlos has opened up about the night she was allegedly drugged and sexually attack following a night out with some friends.

Retelling the night in her autobiography entitled Honest: My Story So Far, which is being serialised by The Sun, Tulisa revealed how her 'fearless nature' at 16 put her in some horrible situations.

At a rave with a few companions, the 24-year-old explained that on the night in question she had seen her friends putting pills in people's drinks and told them that she didn't want to get involved.

In the candid book, Tulisa writes that she even lied about having a heart condition to ensure that her drink wouldn't get spiked.

However as the evening went on she recalls all of a sudden feeling 'abnormally drunk', despite only a few drinks.

Following a few dizzy spells, the Camden born singer soon lost her footing and escorted out of the club for fresh air.

Still haunting to talk about, Tulisa remembered: 'The next thing I remembered was waking up. lying in the back of a cab and seeing the street lights whizzing past me through the windows. I felt completely out of it, and I blacked out again.'

The next time the I Swear singer came around she was in bedroom.

And worse still, in regaining consciousness to her horror she found that her friend was having non-consensual sex with her before passing out again.

'I couldn't even move, let alone get up or speak, and once again I just blacked out. When I finally woke up in the morning I found myself in a strange house'.

In the morning as Tulisa tried to get her what the person she called a friend had done, she found herself greeted with a kind gesture.

The mother of the boy believed that the MOBO award-winner star was her son's girlfriend and offered to make her a cup of tea.

She admitted that she felt 'so embarrassed and ashamed' that she failed to tell the boy's mother what had really happened.

She continued: 'I went into the bathroom and burst into tears. Then I pulled myself together, got dressed, and left without saying another word, crying all the way home.'

Eight years on and the former N-Dubz star revealed that person who attacked her was never brought to justice as she never reported the crime.

Stating that she has now 'come to terms' with the ordeal, Tulisa did say that although she spoke out to friends about what had happened to her, confusion and her age played a big part in her not being courageous enough to seek police help or tell her family.

But ever the fighter, the singer boldly stated that had the attack taken place now, it would be a very different story given her new found strength.
