Rita Ora Threatens to Kill Burglar During Emergency Phone Call
Rita Ora reportedly became overwhelmed with emotion during a court appearance today (June 22), when she was forced to relive a home invasion that took place last November. Two men reportedly broke into her house and stole over $200,000 worth of items — all while Ora and her sister Elena were in the house upstairs, according to the Daily Mail.
The court played Ora's 999 call, which she made after her sister ran to Ora's bedroom and told her she had a close encounter with a burglar: "I need you to come to the house right now, there's a burglary in my house. I have just locked myself in my room, my sister saw him in my room. Can you just send them right now? How long are you gonna be?"
Panicking, Ora reportedly shouted at the burglars, “Don’t f—ing come up these stairs. I will f—k you up, you f—ing hear me.”
The BBC reports Ora later told the operator in a panic, "Oh my God I don't have a knife, I know they're going to come upstairs...What do you want me to do now? I will kill him."
Ora told the court she needed to take a break after she heard the recording: “That phone call freaked me out, just give me a minute.”
"I was woken up by a scream,” she said, after regaining her composure. "I wasn't sure at what time it was, about 5:30AM or so, about around 5:30AM but I didn't look at the time. I was half asleep and then I heard my sister running up the stairs. She just ran up the stairs and she just jumped into my bed and started screaming."
26-year-old Charaf Elmoudden has been named as one of the alleged burglars, though the case is ongoing. He maintains he is innocent, but Ora’s sister Elena identified him as one of the invaders, saying, “I wouldn’t forget that face ever."
