Rita Ora supported by boyfriend Romain Gavras amid illegal Covid party backlash

Rita Ora is said to be finding comfort in her boyfriend Romain Gavras as she came under fire after hosting an illegal birthday party during the height of the coronavirus lockdown.

Rita, 30, and Romain, 39, were first linked last summer but have tried to keep their relationship as low-key as possible.

Despite being snapped sunbathing in Ibiza, the duo have managed to avoid the spotlight.

Now insiders claims the producer has been a rock for Rita after the public turned on her.

Despite reports claiming lockdown has put a strain on their romance, other sources insist they are stronger than ever.

An insider claimed: "Romain has been really supportive of Rita over the last few months."

Rita has found herself at the centre of a furious public backlash after being caught breaking lockdown restrictions to host a birthday party for herself.

The I Will Never Let Down songstress decided that despite being in the middle of a pandemic, and with the infection rate spiralling out of control, she would party with some of her closest pals at Kensington haunt Casa Cruz.

The police were called by a concerned member of the public but upon arrival were unable to gain access to the venue.

A recent hearing held by Chelsea and Kensington council heard how CCTV had been deliberately turned off.

Case Cruz's manager claimed he was offered £5,000 by Rita's team to host the party – despite it being a blatant breach of Covid guidlines.

Rita is starring in Sky Original film Twist – a modern take on Dickens classic Oliver Twist – but it has been widely panned by critics.

Rita plays the role of Dodger alongside Rafferty Law as Oliver Twist.

While Rita recorded a new song Flame for the film's soundtrack, her record label are yet to put the track online forcing fans to listen to low quality rips.

Daily Star revealed earlier this year how Rita enlisted the help of MNEK and Dan Smith from Bastille for the song.

Her last single, How To Be Lonely was released in March 2020 but failed to make the UK Top 40.

The song, which was co-wrote by Lewis Capaldi, peaked at number 57.

However, in a glimmer of hope the song made it to number 8 in Scotland.

A rep for Rita Ora has been contacted by Daily Star for comment.
