Tulisa got teary as she confessed she feared her career was in tatters after an intimate video of the star was leaked online.
The X Factor judge and N-Dubz star took legal action after footage surfaced of her sharing an "intimate moment" with ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards, who denies posting the clip.
And the 23-year-old told Alan Carr on his Chatty Man show: "I'm thinking, Oh God, my career could be over - the whole UK thinks I'm a slapper."
The Young singer added: "I have been surprised by how nice everyone has been. I haven't done anything wrong, so any normal person would be like, 'She's human'."
Tulisa, who welled upo on the programme, admitted she'd be been worried about the tape's release for months.
"I've always said I wouldn't even do a bikini shoot, let alone something like that."
