Rita Ora's team offered a restaurant £5,000 to break lockdown rules for her 30th birthday, according to police.
The pop star's security team also asked for CCTV cameras to be turned off during the party at Casa Cruz, in Notting Hill, on 28 November, amid the second virus lockdown, police said.
CCTV hard drives were wiped two days later, a licensing hearing at Kensington and Chelsea Council heard.
Ms Ora declined to comment. She has previously apologised for the party.
The 30-year-old flew to Egypt for a private performance on 21 November. On her return the following day, she should have isolated for two weeks.
Instead, she threw a birthday party in London, which violated lockdown rules that prevented households mixing indoors.
