Melanie Vondrau – who was married to the singer’s father Plato for ten years until 2009 – is clearly determined to get her fifteen minutes out of the whole situation and she doesn’t mind twisting the knife to do so.
“I’m appalled. Tulisa doesn’t respect herself because of the way she was brought up – especially when it comes to men,” she told The People. “A young girl who respects herself would choose her partner very wisely. She is clearly not making the right partner choices.”
“She is not seeking out a healthy relationship – a genuine and honourable man,” she continued brashly.
Vondrau admitted that Tulisa was the ‘victim’ in the whole situation, but went on to warn her former step-daughter that “she needs to stop being so careless with herself and her career. She is so talented and has the chance to make it big. She can’t afford for stuff to come out like this.”
“She needs strong loving parental guidance. Unfortunately for Tulisa, her mum is not very well and she has got a father who is a distant character.”
“I feel she is a victim of her childhood – the classic little girl who wants her father’s love.”
