What Tulisa is looking for in a man!
X Factor judge Tulisa has blasted claims she can be a “needy” girlfriend – but admitted it always takes a man with “massive mental balls” to handle her.
The singer says she’s never had to go after a man and admits that she will sometimes take her PA and best friend Gareth Varey on dates as “a bodyguard”.
Tulisa, who sits with Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger on the show’s panel, insists she has never chased a man. She said: “There were stories doing the rounds that implied I was ‘needy’ in relationships. Me? Needy? Never!
“I’m an independent lady — I don’t chase after guys and constantly call/text them. To suggest I’m a bunny boiler was really insulting as I’m the total opposite.
“Where boys are concerned, it’s usually the other way round. Gareth’s a bit like a bodyguard and best friend rolled into one. Trust me, he will tell me if he doesn’t approve of a bloke but he knows I make my own decisions.
“I want a man who has a massive pair of balls — not physically but mentally!
“He needs to have bigger balls than me without feeling the need to prove that he has bigger balls. It’s important that he accepts that I have balls too.”
Next on her list for a dream man are a sense of humour and thick skin.
