Emails from Dua Lipa's father show he DID try to get his singer daughter to ... trends now

Emails have revealed Dua Lipa's father contacted World Cup officials and put himself forward to help organise the tournament's opening ceremony.

In messages seen by the Mail on Sunday, Dukagjin Lipa, who runs communications agency Republika and represents his daughter, offered to liaise between organisers and musicians.

The documents detail how the singer's Kosovo-born father, known as Dugi, first approached Qatar's World Cup organising body, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, in 2020.

In the messages, which take place over the course of nearly two years, the 53-year-old says 'I represent my daughter' and boasts about the success of one of her live stream events.

He also talks about his connections with other chart-topping artists such as Calvin Harris, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendez and Camila Cabello.

Dua Lipa would later say she would refuse to play at the opening ceremony due to Qatar's human rights record, while Mr Lipa told the Mail on Sunday she was not aware of his contact with the organisers.

Yet emails reveal her manager father, Dukagjin Lipa, had been negotiating with the Qataris for two years to get the chart-topping star to play at the World Cup
