Cops raided the set of singer Dua Lipa‘s upcoming music video after concerned locals reported the star for violating lockdown rules.
According to British tabloid The Sun, the “New Rules” star was accompanied by a large crew on the set in Shoreditch, east London, on Wednesday night.
According to onlookers, Dua and her crew didn’t adhere to social distancing regulations.
“Dua and her entourage were having the time of their lives, but for those living around them it was a nightmare,” the locals said. “It looked as though the people on the shoot were breaking rules and social distancing was totally out of the question.
“There were extras and what appeared to be dancers swarming around. Some people looked as though they were drinking too, so it ended up being quite rowdy,” the source added.
“People in the area are respecting the law, so to see a pop star openly break it was poor form. Someone called the police. It was late at night and deserted there but, ultimately, it’s a smack in the face for locals who had to listen to it going on.”
It’s not the first time the artist has been criticized for not following coronavirus rules. In August, the “Physical” hitmaker came under fire for attending a large social gathering in California during the pandemic.
Dua, a 25-year-old Libra, worked as a waitress in London while living on her own at age 15. She gained fame by posting cover songs on YouTube.
The two-time Grammy winner began dating Anwar Hadid, Bella and Gigi‘s little brother, in 2019. Anwar and Dua are seen strolling in Soho in New York City on September 29, 2020.
