British hip-hop star Tulisa Contostavlos has threatened to sue Twitter.com bosses for allegedly refusing to remove defamatory statements about her posted online by another user.
The N-Dubz singer contacted bosses at the microblogging site after a user began publishing false rumours about Contostavlos, accusing her of taking cocaine while pregnant and “stealing” her bandmate Fazer away from his girlfriend.

The profile has since been taken down, but Contostavlos is furious that the messages were allegedly allowed to remain online for months.

In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, “Someone made a fake account and started up loads of evil rumours about me, she dedicated 4 months to tweeting all day everyday making up stories about me, some people actual believed her and started tweeting me abuse…

“I am in the process of taking legal action against twitter for not removing the page due to what they call freedom of speech….”
