Singer, Rita Ora does not totally believe a friend leaked details of her private rule-breaking 30th birthday party to the press and will investigate the true source of the leaks, according to a new report.
The British singer apologized to the public this week and paid a fine of £10,000 after holding a bash with a gathering of around 30 people at a London restaurant to mark her 30th birthday.
Rita and her friends were caught on camera entering the Casa Cruz restaurant in Nottinghill on Saturday night, November 28.
Sources claimed Rita had a ‘plan’ to uncover the mole inside her group, who she thought informed the public of the party’s details.
‘Some of her closest friends have been suggesting someone on the guest list with a guilty conscience or a scorned friend who didn’t make the cut may have informed the public.” A source told the Sun UK.
’It was suppose to be a secret gathering, but due to the police and photographers finding out it was happening has really made Rita disappointed.’
‘She’s now devising a game plan and setting traps in a bid to expose the whistleblower, like Coleen did in the Wagatha Christie drama.’
It is believed stars including Vas J Morgan, Cara and Poppy Delevingne were in attendance at the party. Rules in place at the time of the party stated that restaurants and pubs should only be open for takeaway and delivery, while people were not allowed to mix indoors, or outdoors in groups larger than six.
Rita issued an apology saying:
‘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 going 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. ‘I feel particularly embarrassed knowing first-hand how hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help keep us all safe. Even though this won’t make it right, I want to sincerely apologise.’
Sources claim that Rita voluntarily paid a £10,000 fine to the council as a gesture of goodwill for the rule breach.
