High Court orders closure of Tulisa’s company

Tulisa Contostavlos is no longer the female boss of The Female Boss Ltd, after the High Court ordered the company to be closed down. HMRC asked the High Court to force the closure after Contostavlos failed to submit accounts for her company for four years – the last filing coming in November 2011.

A source told The Mirror that the former N-Dubz vocalist had stopped filing accounts after legal bills began to mount up – starting with her battle to get a sextape taken down in 2012 – and amidst various financial and other stresses, including when she was dropped from ‘The X-Factor’ as a judge.

The source claims: “Tulisa wants to put everything that’s happened behind her. She wants to launch her new career with a new company. She’s talking about exciting projects and has set up a new company to put all her business through. The Female Boss might have been closed but she’s not going anywhere”.

Which may be the case, though it’s probably worth pointing out that if you decide you don’t like the company you’re running, just ignoring it isn’t the best way to proceed. It’s also probably harder to ignore it if you have the name of that company tattooed on your arm and you used it as the title for your debut solo album.

Anyway, according to Companies House records, Contostavlos set up a new company called TFB Entertainment in June. She also owns another called Ask Your Man, which is doing just fine and has all of its accounts up to date, thank you very much.
