Riyad Mahrez’s wife says she was ‘fined for being too hot’ as police raid party
Riyad Mahrez's estranged wife claims she was fined for "being too hot" after breaking lockdown rules in a video which shows her asking police: "Don't you guys like to party anymore?"
Footage shows model Rita Johal being surrounded by officers as they handed her a fine for partying at a flat in London during the coronavirus pandemic.
The 27-year-old was with at least half a dozen people at the party on Friday night, where she posted videos to her half-a-million followers on Instagram.
She captioned the videos: "Fine for being too hot. Look we all got fined don't worry about it sweetheart."
At least 10 Metropolitan Police officers can be seen grilling the revellers as Rita asks: “Guys is this what life is? Don’t you guys like to party anymore, guys?”
A female officer can then be heard telling her: "Not during lockdown."
To which she responded: “Guys, you can’t be all depressed in this world, we have got to be happy.”
Rita then continued on her bizarre rant by claiming “the one per cent is controlling us” and shouting “we are all in this together!”
An officer is then instructed to give her a fine for the lockdown breach.
The Manchester City star’s partner claimed the police were “heavy handed” when handing her the fine.

She told The Sun: “Oh for God’s sake. There wasn’t a lot of people there, there was like five people.
“Why is this being run, what’s its purpose? To try and make my name look bad? Is that your guys’ plan?”
It is still against the law to meet socially with family or friends outside of your household or support bubble.
Anyone caught breaking lockdown regulations faces a £200 fine, which doubles for further offences up to a maximum of £6,400.
Rita, who has two children with Mahrez, separated from the Premier League footballer in 2019.
