SINGER Rag n’ Bone Man has slammed “grasses” after police turned up to break up a house party – only to discover it was only the chart topper and his housemate.
The pair were celebrating Rag n’ Bone Man’s 36th birthday by blasting out a karaoke version of the 80’s hit “Waiting for a star to Fall”.
But a noisy neighbour mistakenly thought a party was going on in breach of coronavirus rules and called police.
The ‘Human’ singer and his mate, Chris, were stunned when officers from Sussex Police knocked at the front door to check if they were breaching the national lockdown rules.
The following morning the singer took to Twitter saying someone had grassed him up in a bid to get him in trouble.
The BRIT Award winning singer said: “Some c***chops tried to grass me up for having a birthday party last night.
“The old bill came in the house to find me and my housemate Chris doing a karaoke duet of “waiting for a star to fall."
One fan replied to the singer, writing: "Considering the song you were trying to sing both of you were probably gargling on each others mic when the cops entered!!”
Rag'n'Bone Man then replied: “Who doesn't like that song?”
Another follower added on Twitter: "Happy birthday, some people just like to cause trouble, the same thing has happened to me twice.”
A third cheekily added: 'Bet Chris carried you a bit.'
The singer jokingly replied: “Fully.”
However the singer, who is promoting a new single ‘All You Ever Wanted’ and has a new album out in April, later deleted the tweet.
A Sussex Police spokesperson said: "On Friday evening (29 January) Sussex Police attended a property in Heathfield after reports of an alleged house party.
"At the property, officers spoke to the occupant and established there was no party and there had been no breaches of the covid-19 legislation."
