'X Factor' wannabe Tamera Foster has apologised to fans after it emerged she took drugs, insisting she is "ashamed" of her behaviour
'X Factor' wannabe Tamera Foster feels "ashamed" about taking drugs.
The 16-year-old hopeful has apologised to fans after it was revealed she had smoked marijuana with the Class A narcotic PCP -- which can cause hallucinations - and has vowed to be a better role model to her supporters.
She said: "I'm very ashamed of the drug use.
"I do really want to be a good role model for my fans.
"I'm upset and ashamed by my actions and realise how stupid I was. I never meant to encourage or endorse the use of drugs."
The brunette beauty has also apologised following revelations she previously assaulted Holly Wilks and a friend, but she blamed the drugs for her behaviour.
She added to The Sun newspaper: "If I saw Holly I would apologise and make it clear I am remorseful.
"I am really sorry for what happened. I lashed out when I shouldn't have. It was a really stupid move.
"I do think the marijuana I took could have contributed to my behaviour.
"I was in a bad place when that happened and I'm in such a better place now.
"The police being involved made me realise it was serious what happened. I was stupid.
"I'm not a violent person. The police weren't called to the scene. Their involvement came a few months after the incident. I'm not sure what sparked that, but I got a phone call from the police asking for an interview."
