Rita Ora breaks all rules to celebrate illegal birthday party

The singer offered $7.000 to the restaurant owners, and cameras at the venue were turned off so no one attending was exposed.

Rita Ora is staying silent following the online criticism she received after news of her illegal birthday party surfaced.

It was revealed that the 30-year-old singer offered to pay a London restaurant around $7.000 to keep the place open, and celebrate her birthday with friends and family.

The authorities were quick to take action, intending to have the restaurant’s license revoked for breaking the lockdown rules, imposed after the increase of COVID-19 cases.

Close sources also said that not only was Rita Ora bribing the restaurant owners, but the cameras at the venue were also turned off so no one attending was exposed.

Although the list of guests is yet to be revealed, it was reported that supermodel and actress Cara Delevingne was present at the event.

This is not the first time the singer breaks the rules during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as she also posted a statement in November, apologizing for attending a private party during lockdown in Notting Hill.

“I’m deeply sorry for breaking the rules and in turn understand that this puts people at risk. This was a serious and inexcusable error of judgement.”

She also admitted to taking “full responsibility,” however fans of the artist are calling her out for doing it a second time, losing 220.000 Instagram followers in one day.

The deadly virus has taken the lives of more than 10.000 people in the United Kingdom.
