As a result, Dua was forced to fork out a huge amount in an attempt to convince the council to give her permission to make the change.

Her plans include the creation of a megabasement with a swimming pool and a recording studio.

A source said, “Dua applied for the job last August.

“She is almost a year old and nothing is happening.

“Conservationists have expressed concern that, while not uncommon, it is slowing things down.

“Since then, she has paid experts to study the effect of the basement on the connecting properties and other small details.

“Dua has already received three reports, and it is hoped that this summer she will finally be able to get down to business if no more wrenches are thrown into the work.

“Most of her work seems low-risk, but she was told that if she got permission, her pool should be quieter than a whisper.

“Dua just wants to start renovating because this is her dream home.

“In addition to the studio and pool, she plans to place a gym in the basement. It will be incredible when it’s finished.”

Dua is not the only celebrity who has had to go through all the hurdles to complete a major job at the London facility.

Robbie Williams is also restoring his £17.5 million Grade II listed capital mansion.

Because of the council and his neighbor, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, some of the work has to be done with hand tools to keep it quiet.

I wouldn’t want to be a laborer who has to dig this basement by hand.

KNOT A TOP LOOK, JESSICA

JESSICA CHASTEIN is rarely wrong.

But I guess the actress will be wondering if she should fire her stylist after appearing on the red carpet in this unflattering outfit.

Jessica Chastain wore a cream tie over a black halter-neck dress to the premiere of her latest film, The Forgivens.

At the premiere of her latest film, The Forgivens, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, she wore a cream tie that looked like it had just been taken from my kids’ costume box over a black halter-neck dress.

Apparently, it was a custom-made dress from Ralph Lauren and not available to the public.

Maybe it’s for the best, because I don’t see it flying off the shelves.

If it’s a new trend, I have a lot of ties to look fashionable, but I won’t be wearing a dress anytime soon.

KSI: MY THERAPY FOR RESILIENCE

STOP and start a family is a big decision for most people.

But KSI, posing here for a photo shoot for the new issue of Wonderland Magazine, finds the prospect so intimidating that he had to seek help.

KSI said he was in therapy to prepare for his degree.

The British rap star told the magazine: “I want a wife and kids and I want all of that.

“I don’t want to work until I’m 50, and then I realize that I want all this.

“I’ve been through a lot and I’ve been through the other side.

“I’ve been seeing a therapist for the last few months to make sure I’m in the right place and I’m ready for the year ahead – and even a few years from now.”

ROMEO AT THE HOT CONDITIONS ON THE HEEL OF THE BOWL

Romeo Beckham is following in the footsteps of David Bowie.

For a new Yves Saint Laurent ad campaign, the young model wears a pair of high-heeled boots identical to those worn by David, who died in 2016.

While they looked great on David and looked equally good on Romeo, I’m not sure if they would fit me. . . as is the £1,105 price tag.

CHARLIE READY FOR REVIVAL

CHARLI XCX and Paolo Nutini lead a special series of concerts in small venues.

The pair are part of the National Lottery’s Revive Live Tour, which spans 200 massive concerts across the country this summer.

Other artists on the bill include Sleaford Mods And Lianne La Havas.

Singer James Skelly, who will play Blackpool Bootleg Social with his band The Coral, said: “Mass venues are the real beating heart of the music industry.

“The first time we sold out the 200-seat hall, we really thought, ‘We’re doing something here.’

“A place like this is important not only for artists and fans, but for the entire community.”

Tickets go on sale starting June 17 – and if you play the lottery, you’ll get a two-for-one ticket.

Considering the skyrocketing ticket prices for decent concerts these days, this seems like a good deal to me.

Bizbit

MEGAN THEE STALLION has criticized fellow rapper Tory Lanez, claiming he should go to jail after she claimed he shot her in the leg.

She said, “I thought we had a real connection. I thought he knew me.

“I never did anything to him. There was a dispute.

“People fight every day. Friends fight every day. I couldn’t walk.

“I still have bullet fragments in my legs.”

Meghan, who claims the incident happened after a party in July 2020, told Rolling Stone that it felt like she was being framed as a villain.

She added, “I want him to go to jail.”

Tory denies assault and weapons charges related to the incident and is expected to appear in court in September.

EXTEND TO 1D RECONNECT

Asked if they would reunite, he said, “I don’t know. I mean, I think the thought of it is really nice.”

Speaking on the Spout podcast, Harry added: “I think we’ve all been through something really special together, and there’s a lot of love in that.

“So yeah, I think if we had a moment to get it right, I think that would be great.”
