Gems for Rita Ora worth $4 million ‘forgotten’ on Cannes flight

/ 06:24 PM May 25, 2019

A woman left jewelry worth more than 3.5 million euros ($4 million or P204.3 million) she was bringing for pop singer Rita Ora to wear at Cannes film festival on a plane, police told AFP Thursday.

The Kosovo-born star was loaned the gems by a luxury brand when she walked the red carpet at the festival last week.

But a courier sent from London with the jewelry forgot her cabin luggage and her coat when leaving her plane at Nice Airport.

By the time she realized her mistake, the aircraft had already taken off on the return journey to London Luton.


“Someone with their head in the clouds nearly lost several million,” a police sourced joked, saying the jewelry was recovered at Luton and send back to Nice via London Heathrow.

Ora, 28, later appeared at a party in Cannes in a striking diamond necklace and a white bustier dress. NVG
