The former X Factor judge will stand trial in July after being charged with helping supply an undercover reporter with cocaine.
Singer Tulisa Contostavlos has made her first appearance at crown court where she was told she will stand trial on July 14 accused of brokering a cocaine deal.
The N-Dubz star, 25, is charged with helping an undercover reporter obtain 13.9 grams of the Class A drug for £860.
She appeared at Southwark Crown Court alongside rapper Mike GLC, also known as Michael Coombs, 35, for a 10-minute preliminary hearing.
Former X Factor judge Contostavlos, of Friern Barnet, north London, denies being "concerned with the supply of 13.9 grams of cocaine" to the Sun on Sunday's undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood, known as the 'fake sheikh', between May 20 and May 24.
The pair spoke only to confirm their names and say that they understood the current timetable.
Contostavlos was initially arrested in connection with the incident with Coombs on June 4.
She was officially dropped as a judge on X Factor days before her arrest, with Sharon Osbourne returning to the show in her place.
