Rita Ora at the lavish 30th birthday bash in London where she was fined £ 10,000


Rita Ora apologized for a "grave and inexcusable error of judgment" after meeting friends in a fashionable London restaurant for her 30th birthday.

Pop star Miss Ora, whose mother returned to the NHS frontline after the pandemic broke out, said: “I am particularly embarrassed to know firsthand how hard people have worked to fight this terrible disease. Even if this doesn't get you right, I would like to sincerely apologize. "

It is alleged that she voluntarily agreed to pay a fine of £ 10,000, although any fine imposed would be against the owner of the premises and not the person hosting the party.

Supermodel Cara Delevingne, her sister Poppy and Miss Ora's sister Elena were also at the Notting Hill hotspot Casa Cruz on Saturday evening.

Pictures from The Sun showed guests arriving at the back of the restaurant.

It was originally reported that she invited 30 friends to party "until the wee hours of the morning", but sources close to her have only said seven.

At around 9 p.m., Met officials were seen looking in the windows after being called but were unable to access.

After receiving more information, the police continued their investigation today, but to no avail as the restaurant staff seemed unaware of the officers' efforts to get in this morning.

Nicholas Fallows, listed as the sole director of Casa Cruz London Ltd, insisted he was unaware of the event.

The Prime Minister's spokesman said: "It is important that everyone in society set an example by following the rules – including celebrities."

The breach was a far cry from Rita's actions earlier this year when it launched coronavirus safety items adorned with the “Stop the Spread” logo.

But in her apology this morning she admitted, “Hi everyone, I attended a small gathering with some friends to celebrate my 30th birthday.

& # 39; It was a spontaneous decision made with the misguided view that we were going to get out of lockdown and that would be fine. I am very sorry for breaking the rules and I understand that doing so puts people at risk.

This was a grave and inexcusable error of assessment. Given the limitations, I understand how irresponsible these actions were, and I take full responsibility.

As police continued their investigation today, Miss Ora took to social media to admit that she attended the "little gathering" with the "misguided view that we would get out of the lockdown and that it would be okay".

“I am especially embarrassed to know firsthand how hard people have worked against this terrible disease and to understand the sacrifices that people and companies have made to protect us all. Even if this doesn't get you right, I would like to sincerely apologize. & # 39;

A source close to Ora told MailOnline: "Rita knows her actions were wrong, which is why she voluntarily paid the £ 10,000 fine to the council. She hopes this will somehow make up for her mistake in judgment. & # 39;

It came when Kensington and Chelsea Council confirmed that the party was also under investigation.

A spokesman said, "We are aware of the reports and will investigate them with the premises."

Meanwhile, residents who now lived near the restaurant told of their anger at the "selfish" singer, who apparently ignored government restrictions to celebrate her birthday.

A man in his fifties whose house overlooks the restaurant said, “I was hoping the council would put the maximum on you. What's the point of having rules when they're broken just because someone wants to throw a party? & # 39;

Another close neighbor who lives on a community property next to the restaurant added, “It's a rule for the rich and the rest of us can stay in line. I didn't hear anything on Saturday but they shouldn't have held the party.

It came when it was confirmed that the billionaire of the restaurant where the star allegedly had the party had no idea the event was about to take place.

The 43-year-old Francois Perrodo, who, along with his mother Carrie, is one of the richest managing directors in Great Britain with assets of £ 5.8 billion, is the majority shareholder in Casa Cruz.

Mr. Perrodo is a businessman and racing driver and has participated in several races in his native France.

His fortune comes from the oil and gas industry and he is chairman of the Anglo-French company Perenco, founded by his late father Hubert.

A source told MailOnline this morning, "He had absolutely no idea this was going to take place there."

The restaurant's director also said they were in the dark about who approved the party and deepened the mystery of who gave it permission.

Allegedly, 30 people attended the secret bash on Saturday, named after the Chile-born Juan Santa Cruz who originally stood behind the restaurant.

The director of Casa Cruz, Nicholas Fallows, insisted on Sunday that he also had no plans for an event and that the restaurant was "owned by the shareholders".

MailOnline may disclose that it is owned by a company called Casa Cruz London Limited.

At least 75 percent of them belong to Casa Cruz Holdings Limited, whose majority shareholder is Francois Perrodo with three quarters of the shares.

His brother Bertrand and wine tycoon sister Nathalie are the only other people who have significant control over the company.

The government reiterated the importance of complying with restrictions on Sunday before the UK's second national lockdown ends on December 2nd.

In pictures from The Sun, Cara and Poppy Delevingne as well as TOWIE star Vas Morgan (31) and Rita's sister Elena (32) can be seen at the venue.

During the night, police officers were pictured outside the restaurant peeking in windows and trying to open a metal door.

Rita was also seen leaving the building wearing a stealthy wrap skirt and black face mask.

A source told the publication: “Rita and her sister came to the restaurant first, everyone pimped up and clearly looking forward to a good night.

"There were a number of guests, all dressed very glamorously, and they all entered the building from the back, with security watching the front to make sure no one else went in. It lasted until the wee hours of the morning."

MailOnline has asked representatives from Rita Ora, Cara and Poppy Delevingne, Vas J Morgan and Casa Cruz for a comment.

The restaurant's director, Nicholas Fallows, told The Sun that he was not aware of any plans for an event and that the restaurant was "owned by shareholders."

Previously, the Met Police confirmed that they had been called on Saturday night over reports of a possible violation of COVID-19 regulations in the area.

The guidelines, introduced with the national lockdown on November 5th, also state that people “are not allowed to socialize with family or friends indoors unless they are part of your household, the people you live with , or your support bubble ”.

On Sunday, she took the opportunity as an opportunity to look back on decades past as she went on Instagram to share a ton of photos of herself as a child.

While on Saturday the star was given an impressive keepsake – a video with a comprehensive list of stars wishing her a happy birthday.

The singer took to Instagram to share the stunning clip, which featured performances by Mariah Carey, Naomi Campbell, Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, Lionel Richie and Vjosa Osmani, the incumbent President of Kosovo – to name a few.

She was also surprised by her parents, Besnik and Vera, who began the process by sharing snapshots of the star as a young girl as she celebrated various past birthdays.

With Stevie Wonder's timeless classic Happy Birthday in the background, celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Chelsea Handler, Idris Elba, Paris Hilton, Davina McCall, Liam Payne, Sam Smith and Jonathan Ross also welcomed the star.

After watching the clip with her parents, the birthday boy said, “This is a bad video! Impressive. Thanks to everyone who made this video. You made me the happiest girl in the world. Thank you very much. & # 39;

Rita also took the opportunity to look back on the past few decades on Sunday as she went on Instagram to share a ton of photos of herself as a kid.

The girls' singer looked adorable in the pictures she showed at different ages as teenagers, posing with her father Besnik and 32-year-old sister Elena.

Rita wrote, “I think I was addicted to clothes as a child. So grateful that I can share this with you guys.

"Life goes by so quickly, so live your BEST LIFE even in these times and try to find joy in something like a photo too."

Rita was partying last Thursday and was seen tucking into a creamy two-tier cake with the words "Happy Birthday Rita" iced in pink font on the front of the cake.

The media personality also appeared to have been given some flowers by Dior, measured by a bow that adorned the bouquet.

"Also watch the hairspray on the table lol lol thanks anyway for everyone who showed me endless love on the day I was born I'm forever grateful that you all know who you are."

Rita later shared a video of herself the same day she was chatting to the camera with the sound turned off so what she was saying was inaudible.

She titled the clip: "I want to post this, I can't tell you what I'm saying but I look cute."
