Rita Ora in quarantine after COVID breach

Superstar Rita Ora has entered hotel quarantine in Sydney after previously breaking COVID-19 rules at a star-studded London party.

Ora, 30, is in Australia to shoot the upcoming season of The Voice, where she'll be a coach guiding wannabe pop stars on how to achieve their singing goals.

The Brit was escorted from Sydney Airport to a hotel quarantine facility, unlike some other foreign A-listers who have been able to quarantine in homes, The Sun reported.

"There was nothing she could do to avoid having to properly quarantine," a source told the newspaper.

Ora previously caused a scandal in the UK when it was exposed she had hosted a birthday party at a Notting Hill venue that broke coronavirus restrictions.

According to UK media reports, the singer paid the equivalent of $9000 to rent out the Casa Cruz restaurant, where the CCTVs were turned off for the night. A recent licensing hearing by the local council heard the camera hard drives were wiped afterwards.

Ora hosted a crowd of around 20, including top model Cara Delevingne, despite returning from Egypt just a week before the November 28 party.

That overseas trip should have required her to self-isolate for two weeks.

The singer has apologised for the party. The Seven Network, which will air the new season of The Voice, has been contacted for comment.
