Dua Lipa Shuts Down Richard Wilkins Over Jimmy Kimmel Jibe
Touring popstar Dua Lipa has clapped back at Richard Wilkins for accusing her of ditching her Australian tour to appear on US television.
“Dua Lipa cancelled her appearances last weekend, as a result of having to have immediate surgery to have her wisdom teeth removed. But get this, here she is last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!” he declared on the Today show, before claiming the US performance was recorded live.
But last night Dua Lipa was on stage at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney as part of Bruno Mars' 24K Magic Tour.
She was having none of Richard Wilkins' commentary.
"If you were a good journalist you would’ve done proper research instead of talking out of your ass," she tweeted.
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. I’ve been in Australia on bed rest and wouldn’tve cancelled my Bruno shows if I didn’t have to. @9NowAU pic.twitter.com/B991bDQkUs— DUA LIPA (@DUALIPA) March 21, 2018
