Lana Del Rey seen for the first time since deactivating social media… amid drama with Lorde

Lana Del Rey looked happier than ever as she was seen for the first time since deactivating her social media channels just over two weeks ago. 

The singer, real name Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, was beaming as she was pictured at a church in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday, wearing a green floral sundress.

It comes as the Summertime Sadness hitmaker, 36, accused fellow singer Lorde of ripping off her songs in her new album.

The star looked beautiful in the thigh-skimming number, which boasted puff sleeves and a square neckline.

She paired her church dress with a light green cardigan wrapped around her waist and a red quilted handbag.

The Video Games star stepped out in a pair of light brown moccasin shoes which appeared to depict an image of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

The brunette beauty styled her hair in subtle waves, while she modelled a light makeup palette – showcasing her natural beauty.  

According to The Sun, the Video Games hitmaker was offered royalties from Lorde’s new track Stoned At the Nail Salon, after comparisons were made between the melodies of the song and Lana’s tracks Wild At Heart and Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Woman Like Me To Have.

Lana’s songs were featured on 2021’s Chemtrails over the Country Club and 2019’s Norman F****** Rockwell, respectively.

An insider has claimed Lana isn’t interested in receiving a percentage of the publishing rights to the 24-year-old star’s track. 

Instead, the Doin’ Time singer is said to want Lorde to admit to the world that she was influenced by her songs, in order to meet an ‘amicable resolution’ and to avoid a legal case.

The songwriting source told the newspaper: ‘The disagreement between Lana and Lorde has been quietly bubbling for a while.

‘But nobody involved wants it to escalate further if possible.

‘A lot of Lana’s fans had flagged one of Lorde’s new songs ‘Stoned At the Nail Salon’ online saying the melody mimicked two of her tracks – ‘Wild At Heart’ and ‘Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Woman Like Me To Have’.

‘Lana’s team agreed and after an expert got involved and some discussions were thrashed out between everyone involved, Lorde’s people came back and offered Lana a percentage of the publishing rights to the song.’

They added: ‘It means the only last course of action would be to sue – but everyone is very keen to avoid that if at all possible and hopes there can be an amicable resolution instead.

‘The forensic experts agree with the fans, so it seems to be quite a clear-cut case.

Neither artist has commented on the report.

Earlier this month the White Dress songwriter quit social media.

The brunette beauty posted an Instagram clip titled ‘On the record’ in which she explained why she was leaving multiple platforms, including Twitter and Instagram.

‘Hi, guys. I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow we are going to be deactivating our social media accounts, my social media accounts,’ she said. ‘That is simply because I have so many other interests and other jobs I’m doing that require privacy and transparency.’

In the black and white video she added, ‘For right now, I think I’m going to just keep my circle a little bit closer and continue to develop some other skills and interests.’

She continued: ‘I wanna say a heartfelt, just, thank you for, you know, continuing to kind of see me through the music. It’s always important to be witnessed and it’s also really important just to be witnessed by the people close to you that you know and who you trust.’

Del Rey’s next album Blue Banisters is set to be released October 22.
