Paloma Faith was turned away from The Ivy Kensington Brasserie earlier this week after she rocked up with her friend’s dog in tow, according to a new report.

The singer, 41, allegedly arrived at the swanky London eatery carrying the little dog “she was looking after for a pal”.

However, the Daily Mail reports she was asked to leave by a member of staff on the door as “the restaurant only allow guide dogs and certified emotional support dogs”.

According to the eatery’s website, they state under their dog policy that, “the Guide dogs and certified emotional support dogs are allowed in all our restaurants.

“We do not allow dogs or any other pets inside our restaurant.” A spokesperson for the restaurant confirmed the policy with The Standard.

The Standard has contacted Paloma Faith’s rep for comment.

The singer’s reported dining faux pas comes as she described 2022 as “f***ing s***” following her reported split last year.

The singer, 41, was said to have announced her break-up with long-term partner Leyman Lahcine as she attended Jonathan Ross’ annual Halloween party.

Faith admitted she’s been left a “broken woman” in a recent post, months after the split reports, as she arrived in Rome, Italy, with her two young children, shared with Lahcine, 35.

The artist took to Instagram to write: “Omg I am a broken woman getting two kids to Rome alone but I’m here and I’m very dishevelled and I am grateful for everyone who supported me in 2022 cause it was f***ing s***!”

Faith shared her promise for 2023, however, as she added: “But I’ve got good feelings about next year! Good times are coming.”

The Only Love Can Hurt Like This singer and Lahcine were together for nine years, and went on to have two daughters, aged five and one.

Faith previously thanked fans for their support after the “most difficult” year in a reflective post shared on Instagram, days before Christmas.

Beside a montage of photos posted from her happier moments in 2022, Faith wrote: “Thank you all for supporting me during what was one of the most difficult years of my adult life!

“No matter what was going on you guys were there at the shows and watching the acting and listening to me do constant TMI on all platforms! #palomafaith #goodbye2022 #newyear #workingmum #onlylovecanhurtlikethis”.

Faith and Lahcine were reported in November to have split after a “strained” relationship, according to a source.
