Tulisa Contostavlos's secret boyfriend Fazer says he fears making things public

Their relationship’s been nothing short of a guessing game for years.

But that was until Tulisa Contostavlos‘s N-Dubz bandmate – and secret boyfriend – Fazer, 24, confirmed that they’re actually in a relationship.

In a candid interview with Now, Fazer revealed the real reason he and Tulisa, 23, had kept their relationship under wraps: fears that the pressure of a public romance may tear them apart.

He told us: Cheryl and Ashley Cole spoke about their relationship and see what happened to them.

‘So I’d rather not talk about it.

‘We know what it is and that’s what matters.

‘Everyone knows about us, though.’
