An Australian journalist has been forced to apologise after claiming Dua Lipa 'wasn't being entirely honest' about needing her wisdom teeth out.
It's after the 'New Rules' singer was forced to cancel a number of scheduled performances Down Under, where she had been supporting Bruno Mars on his current world tour.
Richard Jenkins made the claim after a pre-recorded performance of the 22-year old aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday.
Jenkins made the apology after the singer tweeted him with a picture of her swollen face, telling him that the performance on Kimmel was actually recorded back in February.
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
