Dua Lipa hits back at journalist for questioning her cancelled tour dates
 Add to favorites

Dua Lipa has hit back at a journalist who questioned her reasons for cancelling tour dates with Bruno Mars.

Earlier this month, Dua Lipa cancelled dates in Australia with Bruno Mars to undergo emergency dental surgery.

“I’m so sorry to have to cancel some of my support shows with Bruno,” she told fans in a statement. “I’ve been performing with an awful pain due to my wisdom teeth and as advised by my dentist and oral surgeon I have to have them imminently removed.”

However, after her explosive performance on US TV’s Jimmy Kimmel Live was aired earlier this week, Australian journalist Richard Wilkins used this as evidence that Lipa had not been entirely honest about her surgery.

“Well get this — she was supposed to be in Australia opening up for Bruno Mars at his 24 Karat world tour, and had to cancel due to having her wisdom teeth out,” he said on Channel 9 News. “But here she is on Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Lipa then took to Twitter to hit back at Wilkins with a photo of her swollen mouth, telling him: “If you were a good journalist you would’ve done proper research instead of talking out of your ass. Jimmy Kimmel was shot in Feb in La and aired yesterday. I’ve been in Australia on bed rest and wouldn’t have cancelled my Bruno shows if I didn’t have to.”

Lol @RichardWilkins if you were a good journalist you would’ve done proper research instead of talking out of your ass. Jimmy Kimmel was shot in Feb in La and aired yesterday.

Wilkins soon apologised, admitting that he believed the show to in fact be live:

Sincere apologies @DUALIPA. Didn't mean to misinform. Assumed you were live with Jimmy K. your fans and my son have severely castigated me!

“They were sending me snake emojis for, like, three days straight,” said Lipa. “They’re like, ‘I hope you die.’ I’m like, ‘Yo! I literally didn’t say anything’”
