Singer Rita Ora apologises after breaking UK lockdown rules

KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 2): British songstress Rita Ora (pictured) had to publicly apologise after she was found to have flouted Covid-19 lockdown enforcement in the UK by having a 30th birthday party in a London restaurant, reported AFP.

“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,” Ora said on an Instagram posting which was reported by AFP.

“I feel particularly embarrassed knowing first hand how hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness.

“Even though this won’t make it right, I want to sincerely apologise,” she added. She has volunteered to pay a fine.

The lockdown breaking event reportedly took place at a Notting Hill, west London restaurant.

Ora is famous for her hit songs such as “Let You Love Me” and “How to Be Lonely”.
