Rita Ora Pays Covid Fine & Apologizes For Throwing 30th Birthday Gathering
Rita Ora has taken to social media, issuing a public apology for not following the coronavirus lockdown rules for her 30th birthday restaurant party. According to reports, officers were called to her West London dinner party, which took place at a restaurant in Notting Hill.
In a message to fans she said sorry for the ‘serious and inexcusable error of judgement’. The singer will also allegedly pay a voluntary fine for the event. Rita wrote on social media:
‘Hello all, I attended a small gathering with some friends to celebrate my 30th birthday. It was a spur of the moment decision made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown and this would be OK. 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. Given the restrictions, I realise how irresponsible these actions were and I take full responsibility.
Thirty people allegedly attended the secret bash.
A source told the Daily Mail.
‘Rita and her sister came to the restaurant first, all dolled up and clearly looking forward to a good night. There were a number of guests, all dressed up very glamorously, and everyone entered the building through the back, with security watching the front to make sure no one else went in. It went on until the early hours.’
Reportedly, restaurants are also currently closed except for takeaway meals, with any breaking of these guidelines possibly ending up with a fine.
