Famous Greek-origin TV personality Tulisa Contostavlos is reportedly dating Cypriot millionaire Costas Panayiotou.
According to the Mirror, the former X Factor judge has been on several dates with the 24-year-old son of Greek-Cypriot property tycoon Andreas Panayiotou, whose fortune amounts to £400m.
“They really hit it off. They have a lot in common and share several friends and interests, as well as a Greek-Cypriot background. Costas is a bit younger but that doesn’t seem to matter. It’s exciting. They’ve had a great time,” an unnamed source told Mirror. Contostavlos and Panayiotou met after the collapse of her drug trial earlier this year.
In a recent interview, the 26-year-old TV persona revealed that her X Factor colleagues stood by her side through the difficult times.
“I lost touch with a lot of my friends, people I’ve known for years, when things were at their worst. They disassociated themselves from me and that really hurt,” she said.
Tulisa said that Louis Walsh was one of the people that helped and supported her the most. She also thanked the whole X Factor team including Simon Cowell, for being supportive.
