Tulisa Contostavlos has settled her legal action against ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards, who released a sex video of the singer on the internet.
Speaking outside London's High Court the X Factor judge, who turns 24 tomorrow, said her ex had "messed with the wrong woman".
Rap artist Edwards had initially denied being responsible for the tape appearing on the web, but has now admitted his involvement and offered his "sincere apologies".
Tulisa's solicitor, Jonathan Coad, told Mr Justice Tugendhat that the invasion of Miss Contostavlos' privacy "was of the most severe kind imaginable".
"She suffered and continues to suffer very serious distress at this wholly unjustified and unlawful interference with her rights.
"She has been particularly distressed by the wholly untrue allegation made by some that she was in some way complicit with the release of the footage. She was not, as this statement makes clear."
Mr Coad said that Edwards, who was not present but accepted all that was said on behalf of Miss Contostavlos, had also agreed not to speak further in public about their relationship.
