Rita Ora hospitalised hours after burglar is jailed

Rita Ora has been hospitalised for exhaustion. The 26-year-old singer was admitted into a facility just a few hours after intruder Charaf Elmoudden was jailed for five years after being found guilty of carrying out a £200,000 raid on her home.

Rita shared a photo from her hospital bed with her 5.6million Twitter followers in the early hours of Thursday morning. "Today was pretty tough but I'm getting through it. Thank you to all of you for the support! I love you! #exhaustionisreal," she wrote.

The image prompted the star's devoted fans to post concerned messages, urging her to get better soon. "Get well soon babe, we're thinking of you," one wrote, while another added: "Stay strong!"

A source close to Rita, who has just returned from Glastonbury, told the Mail:  "Yes, she was exhausted – a result of not having a break… Over the last few months she has been flying back and forth between Vancouver and LA – on 50 Shades set in Vancouver and then recording studio in LA.

"She then flew to the UK for the court trial and then went to Glastonbury for a few days partying, and then came back on Monday and shot a two day ad campaign in London this Tuesday and Wednesday."

The star had to give evidence in court following a £200,000 raid on her house

The stress of the trial was all too clear when Rita broke down in court. The singer, who gave evidence from behind a curtain, was in tears as her panicked 999 call was played to the jury.

The court had heard that Rita's four-bedroom property in north-west London had been deliberately chosen by Mr Elmoudden because he knew she lived there.

Prosecutor Mark Kinsey said of the raid: "That address was a property known to contain a large amount of valuable items because the property belonged at the time and was occupied by recording artist and actress Rita Ora and her sister. They knew whose address it was and that address was targeted."
