Rita Ora claimed her birthday party would only have three people there

We’ve been discussing Rita Ora’s birthday party in which she and 30 people celebrated at a London restaurant, going against London lockdown restrictions. She “voluntarily” paid the mandatory $12,000 fine and wrote an apology which seemed sincere. Only later, we learned that she was already breaking health code protocol by not isolating for 14 days following a trip to Cairo. Apparently, prior to the party, Rita told The Sunday Times that it would be just her and her parents celebrating the big day. So how did 30 people end up in a closed restaurant instead?

Ora recently came under fire for breaking London’s lockdown to have a rumored 30-person birthday dinner for her 30th birthday. During the interview, which took place before the widely publicized gathering, Ora claimed she was having a small celebration.

“It’s going to be literally my parents and me,” she tells the Sunday Times. “I’m actually looking forward to it. To just hanging out with my parents. My reputation’s going to go down the drain.”

Is it possible that Rita’s friends surprised her with a party and she took the hit for them? I suppose, although I doubt it. Rita has a history of not taking blame, like when she tried to blame Roc Nation for her inability to put an album out, but Jay Z shut that down. Or maybe it was a last minute decision that she made upon returning from partying in Cairo. My guess is Rita and her friends planned the party on the down-low hoping lockdown would be over or at least loosened up. And when it came time to decide whether to go through with or not, she decided to go for it, thinking she wouldn’t get caught because she’d already thrown up so much deflection with her IG posts of her eating cake alone and quotes like the ones she gave to the Times. Only she did get caught, because Rita isn’t quite as clever as she thinks she is.

    1. She shouldn’t have been out in public or around her parents since she was supposed to be on a 14 day quarantine !

    2. She really should have married Rob Kardashian since she has so much in common with the Kardashians ! All selfish liars and fakes. Rita Kardashian shall be her new name.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I had the same thought. I bet she was copying the Kardashians since she saw them partying and doing whatever they wanted. She looks like a lost Kardashian sister a lot of the time anyway.

    • theothercleo says:

      What you said about the Kardashian part is spot on, we actually talked about it yesterday with one of my friends. She’s a Kardashian pretending to be a singer. Apparently in the Sunday Times interview she tries to act like she forgot about the relationship with Rob Kardashian because it was along time ago and did not last long. Rita please, you’re not better than this awful family,have a seat.

    She just makes it so hard to like her

  3. Laalaa says:

    And I just think she didn’t give a damn, she thought there was no chance somebody will make her pay because she is famous.
    And her apology did not seem sincere.
    She knew what she was doing, she just thought the rules don’t apply to her

    What a tangled web we weave.

  5. Annabel says:

    People like her are the reason why lockdowns exist.

    • SusieQ says:

      People like her make me stabby, as I sit here dealing with sciatic nerve damage from my bout of Covid that I contracted at work earlier in the fall. I just can’t with these fools.

  6. Penny says:

    I love how it never occurs to these people to just NOT have a gd birthday party. You’ll be ok without a party for one year! I spent my birthday alone this year and I survived, I promise you will too.

    Wow she has a whole new face!

    It’s not just her, but the 29 other people! I don’t know what they were thinking – except that they would get away with it, and they don’t care about the Covid risk. I understand the met police weren’t able to get in, and that they don’t give retrospective penalties- so if they don’t catch you in the act, that’s it. And to put it on Instagram? It’s mind blowing. The restaurant presumably got paid a lot. I know other venues are really worried about being caught not enforcing rules effectively now things are partially open- not that anything was allowed to be open at the time of this party.
