Singer Tulisa Contostavlos has been charged with drink-driving and dangerous driving after allegedly crashing her £150,000 ($215,684) car. It was reported that the 27-year-old star had been arrested following an alleged collision between a Ferrari and a Saab shortly before midnight on 10 September 2015.

The 27-year-old singer was breathalysed at the scene and taken to a police station in east London. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Police were called shortly before midnight on Thursday September 10 to outside Southgate Underground Station following reports of two cars in collision.

"Officers and the London Fire Brigade attended. There were no reported injuries. One of the drivers, a 27-year-old woman, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and was taken to an east London police station."

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that the singer from Enfield was charged on Monday 7 March. He told Sky News: "A woman has been charged with driving offences following a collision on 10 September 2015 outside Southgate Underground station. She was bailed to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Monday, 4 April."

Last year, the star revealed she was driven to the brink of suicide when she found out she was to be charged with conspiring to supply drugs. Tulisa, who has previously admitted to struggling with depression, made the confession in her documentary, Tulisa: The Price of Fame.

If convicted for drink driving, the former N-Dubz singer could be banned from driving for up to a year.
