'Scary' fan 'arrested' at Rita Ora's album launch party

A fan has been reportedly arrested at Rita Ora’s album party after ‘causing a huge scene.’

The incident is said to have delayed the event at Pryzm nightclub in Kingston on Thursday night by an hour.

The fan is reported to have started ‘behaving erratically’ in the crowd prompting staff to intervene.

After trying to calm the Hot Right Now singer’s, 32, fan down, the venue’s crew were forced to call the police to take over.

A source told The Sun: ‘Whatever his motivation, it caused a huge scene — it’s very scary when someone seems totally uncontrollable in a crowd.

‘They were already inside the venue but nobody was quite sure what he wanted to achieve — as soon as he started behaving suspiciously the police piled in.’

The publication reports that attendees witnessed officers handcuffing the man and removing him from the venue.

Rita, who married film director Taika Waititi in 2022, did not address the commotion in an Instagram post-gig, thanking fans for coming along to the launch of You and I.

She wrote: ‘THAT WAS AMAZING!! 😍😱 Playing these new songs live for you has been something i’ve been dreaming about for soooo long!! Thanks to everyone that’s come down to these intimate shows. YOU & I ❤️🔓.’

Rita’s performance comes just days after she performed to the Love Island cast in the villa.

Reflecting on the gig on This Morning, she told Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond: ‘It was so hot and I sweating in places I didn’t know I could sweat from, but I was so happy to be there.

‘I was supposed to stay on the stage but I wanted to get up and close.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Rita’s reps for comment.
