In a statement read to London’s High Court, rapper MC Ultra, 28 – real name Justin Edwards – said: “I am disgusted it has been, and regret ever allowing the claimant to persuade me that we should film ourselves.”

Edwards is fighting a £10,000 claim for damages for alleged breach of privacy and confidentiality, from N-Dubz star Tulisa, who accused him of leaking the sex tape.

Edwards denies releasing the footage of Tulisa giving him fellatio because it would have been “ungentlemanly”.

The sex tape has now gone viral, and Edwards has backed a legal ban on it been shown, or shared.

He says the sex tape was filmed on Tulisa’s phone and he denies having ever owned it.

MC Ultra said he was pleased to be given the chance to tell his side of the story surrounding the sex tape scandal.

“It can’t happen soon enough. I’ve had to move out of my home and it’s been a nightmare for my family.

“I just want this sorted out so I can move on with my life.” 

Tulisa’s QC Desmond Browne told Mr Justice Tugendhat the singer had been “the victim of a vindictive act of betrayal by Mr

Edwards — seemingly motivated by personal spite and financial greed”.

He called the rapper’s denial that he passed on the sex tape “hypocrisy” and “a deceitful representation of the position”.
