HER years of hard graft have seen RITA ORA become one of Britain’s wealthiest stars – and she’s putting her £18million fortune to good use.
The generous singer climbed to No9 on this week’s Sunday Times Young Musicians Rich List and I can reveal she’s treated her parents to a palatial mansion in their native Kosovo.
The new property is thought to have cost around £1.5million and is part of a luxury development in capital Pristina.
Mum Vera proudly posted a snap of the white house on Instagram, writing: “Home is where the heart is.
“Even though we live in London it is so important for us and our children and future generations to be able to visit our home town Pristina.”
It means Vera, who is a psychiatrist, and dad Besnik, an economist, have come full circle after being forced to flee Kosovo as war broke out in 1991 with Rita, her sister Elena and brother Don.
They escaped on the last flight out of Pristina before the airport shut, arriving in the UK as refugees and living in a council flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London.
An insider said: “Rita’s whole family have contributed to her success and she wants more than anything to give back to them and make sure they live a comfortable life.
'ROOTS' BACK IN KOSOVO
“She is eternally grateful that they gave her a chance in life by escaping Kosovo during the political uprising and is delighted they are able to lay roots back there.”
Of her gratitude towards her parents, Rita has said: “I never realised how much they had to sacrifice. I think my parents are the strongest people I’ve ever known.
“They made a life all over again, from scratch.”
She might have a big wallet now, but she has an even bigger heart.
