Simon Cowell has received an apology from Tulisa Contostavlos’ personal assistant who sensationally alleged the music mogul is secretly gay.
The former N-Dubz singer’s associate Gareth Varey was caught on tape telling an undercover journalist that he knew several men who have slept with The X Factor boss.
The footage was played to a jury in London last week during Contostavlos’ trial for brokering a cocaine deal, prompting Cowell to issue a statement denying the claim and insisting he has no reason to hide his sexuality.
Now Varey has confessed the statement was untrue and claims he was drunk and trying to impress the reporter, Mazher Mahmood.
In a statement, Varey says, “On 10 May 2013 in the course of seeking to entrap Tulisa, Mazher Mahmood supplied Tulisa, me and others with a lot of alcohol… I can no longer recall all of the details of that evening but I have listened to the recording made by Mahmood. I was clearly very drunk.
“At some point and utterly out of the blue Mahmood asked me if Simon Cowell was gay. I said he was. This is not true. I do not know why I said it, but assume it is because I was so drunk and felt that I was giving Mahmood the type of information he was seeking. I am very sorry for this.”
Contostavlos was cleared of being concerned in the supply of cocaine over inconsistencies in Mahmood’s evidence.
