Dua Lipa has hit out at Channel 9 entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins over a report this morning in which he appeared to claim that the singer lied about her recent cancelled Australian performances.
Last week it was announced that English singer Dua Lipa was being forced to cancel two of her Australian concert appearances due to needing some emergency dental surgery back home. This meant that Lipa had to cancel her two performances in Brisbane as the support act for Bruno Mars’ 24 Karat world tour.
“I’m so sorry to have to cancel some of my support shows with Bruno Mars,’ Dua Lipa wrote on Twitter at the time. “I’ve been performing with an awful pain due to my wisdom teeth and as advised by my dentist and oral surgeon I have had to have them imminently removed.”
“I have been enjoying this tour so much and i’m so upset that life has gotten in the way but hopefully i’ll have a speedy recovery and make it back as soon as possible.”

However, Richard Wilkins seemed to take issue with this explanation, noting on Channel 9’s Today this morning that Lipa seemed to have double-booked her engagements.
