Tile separates from tub

We have a large soaking tub in our master bath which sits right into the corner. There is a single row of tile that goes up the wall on each side and along the top of the tub. I have noticed that when the tub is empty, the tile is flush against the tub. However, when the tub has water in it, the tile on one wall (nearest the faucet) starts to separate from the tub. It doesn't look like the tiles are level, even at a glance without using my laser level to check. But why would only one side of the tiles separate and what do I need to do for this? Do I just need to take off that tile and reapply it? Or is there a bigger issue here?

because they use it on TV doesnt make it a real tool.........
Now to the issue at hand. Yes ,yes, yes, there is a much bigger issue here your floor is moving......or you tub is flexing because it was not seated properly, is it fiberglass? If its not fiberglass chances are your floor is moving from the filled weight of the tub....the tiles are not moving......call back you plumber...

There are some that suggest filling the tub with water before tiling from it.
