British R&B/pop singer Rita Ora didn’t want COVID-19 spoiling her 30th birthday last November. Details are just now coming out about the party she threw at a popular London restaurant where the MTV Award winner allegedly tried to pay her way out of following coronavirus protocols.
Rita Ora’s Rule-Breaking Birthday Bash
Rita Ora celebrated the big 3-0 with a few of her celebrity friends at Casa Cruz in London. According to a (now former) restaurant manager, the singer and her team offered to pay about $7,000 (US) to let them slide on COVID policies, and security cameras were turned off during the event.
“The 30-year-old flew to Egypt for a private performance on 21 November. On her return the following day, she should have isolated for two weeks. Instead, she threw a birthday party in London, which violated lockdown rules that prevented households mixing indoors.” (BBC News)
