Rita Ora threw an illegal birthday party in London for her 30th birthday. The action cost her thousands of Instagram followers.

Singer Rita Ora (30, "For You") has lost around 220,000 followers on Instagram in a very short time. The reason for this is easy to find: Ora threw a party for her 30th birthday in London in November 2020 and got caught in the crossfire of criticism. It violated applicable corona measures, because the British capital was in the second corona lockdown at this time.

Ora is said to have paid £ 5,000 for the illegal party

According to the tabloid "The Sun", Rita Ora is said to have celebrated "until the early hours" with friends in the Casa Cruz restaurant in Notting Hill, West London. Until the police finally put an end to the party. Ora's team is said to have offered the restaurant operator almost 6,000 euros for the illegal opening. That comes from a report by the BBC. In a statement to the police, the restaurant manager said he accepted the offer "because he was greedy".

Rita Ora apologized to her fans

Rita Ora apologized for her illegal birthday party in late November. On her Instagram story, she wrote: "I am deeply sorry that I broke the rules and I understand that this puts people at risk". It was a serious and inexcusable error of assessment. "In view of the restrictions, I realize how irresponsible this action was and I take full responsibility," said the 30-year-old.

However, this was not the first time that Rita Ora violated applicable corona measures. Shortly before her milestone birthday, the singer is said to have traveled from England to Egypt on a private plane and did not go into the mandatory 14-day quarantine after her return, as the Daily Mail previously reported.
