She is best known for being a member of the now defunct Camden-based hip hop group N-Dubz, with her cousin Dappy and their friend Fazer.

During 2011 to 2012, she participated as a judge on the The X Factor. She mentored the “Groups” category in her first year, including Little Mix, the first ever group to win the competition. On 16 March 2012, during aTwitter dispute with Dappy, Contostavlos announced that N-Dubz had split up, and were not taking a break as stated in 2011. Contostavlos released her debut solo album, The Female Boss, on 26 November 2012 which received negative feedback and poor first-week sales.
Following a sting arranged by the Sun on Sunday newspaper, Contostavlos was arrested on 4 June 2013, along with a 35-year old man called Mike GLC, on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs, after the Metropolitan Police “received information concerning the alleged supply of illegal drugs at a central London location”. On 9 December, she was formally charged and she then appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court on 19 December. A further appearance at Southwark Crown Court in January 2014, led to a trial date being fixed for 14 July 2014, the day after her birthday

Richard Anthony “Cheech” Marin (born July 13, 1946) is an American comedian, actor, voice actor and writer of Mexican origin who gained recognition as part of the comedy act Cheech & Chong during the 1970s and early 1980s with Tommy Chong, and as Don Johnson‘s partner, Insp. Joe Dominguez on Nash Bridges. He has also voiced characters in several Disney productions, including Oliver and Company, The Lion King, It’s Tough to be a Bug!, Cars, Cars 2 and Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
