One of Malta’s foremost musicians has publicly cleared her name as rumours spread that she had been involved in a violent incident.
Ira Losco was left with no choice but to take to social media to clear the air after people suspected that she was involved in a local street fight that was captured on video.
The video showed two women from two separate cars, one a Mercedes, arguing and fighting near Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq late at night.
It escalated to the point where one of the assailants approached the Mercedes and started attacking the woman through the window.
The video has been making the rounds on social media, with some keen eyes picking up on the fact that the Mercedes’ number plate started with the letters ‘IRA’, and making the incorrect conclusion that it belonged to the renowned pop singer.
In fact, so many people drew the same conclusion that the real Ira herself had to take to social media and clear the air on the matter.
“Just saying, there’s more than one Ira in Malta and that person in the car is not me,” she said.
“Some of you are so thirsty for a drop of gossip”.
One quick glance at the video shows a blonde woman emerging from the Mercedes, and last time we checke, Ira wasn’t blonde.
Lovin Malta contacted police who said they were unaware of the video.
