They say you are the company you keep, and Tulisa’s company seems to be forever getting into trouble.

The former X Factor judge’s PA, Gareth Varey, has been arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs. According to The Sun, he was taken to a central London police station on 3 March and quizzed over allegations of cocaine dealing and possession of cannabis. Drugs now popularly known  as ‘Green and White sweets’.


The 28-year-old left the station around 3.45pm before making his way back to a North London property he shares with Tulisa. Tulisa was also arrested on drug charges in June 2013 after she allegedly fixed a cocaine deal for an undercover reporter. Her trial is expected to take place on 14 July, the day after her 26th birthday.

Scotland Yard said in a statement: “Police have arrested a 28-year-old man in Barnet on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs and possession of cannabis.”

The pair became close friends when he was a dancer for N-Dubz, before he was promoted to the role of personal assistant. Tulisa has described Gareth as her “best friend, mother and brother”. He even has a tattoo of her name on his leg!


Now we’re not saying Gareth wants to be Tulisa, we’re just saying their lives are becoming quite similar. All we need is a sex tape from her BFF and maybe Fazer and Dappy will put a wig on him and ask him to come on a N-Dubz reunion tour!

Police investigations are ongoing.
