Rita Ora's Past Loves: 'Becky' Candidate Once Romanced Rob Kardashian, Dated Calvin Harris
Rita Ora, who is currently embroiled in the drama surrounding Beyoncé's lemonade, once dated Calvin Harris and Rob Kardashian
The latest candidate for the woman allegedly responsible for Bey and Jay’s marriage drama? British singer Rita Ora. (Ora strongly denies any involvement, Tweeting, “I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”)
While Ora’s style causes speculation, let’s explore the men whose relationships with the 25-year-old are actually confirmed.
Ora and Rob Kardashian began dating in October 2012, but things fizzled just a short, two months later.
Shortly after, Kardashian slammed an ex for infidelity on Twitter, and although he never directly named the singer, many speculated she was the woman he accused of cheating with “nearly 20 dudes,” according to E! News.
Ora also dated Taylor Swift‘s current beau Calvin Harris, but the pair ended their relationship in the summer of 2014. Harris announced the split on Twitter at the time, according to E! News, calling her a “beautiful, talented woman.”
The breakup soon seemed to grow contentious, however, and Ora told Marie Claire in 2015 that mixing business with pleasure had contributed to the relationship’s end.
“There was a reason why I split up with him. And there was a reason why I’m at this point in my life where I feel like I have so much musical freedom, and I don t have to explain myself to anybody,” she told the magazine. “It was more of a thing where I was in awe. I was at that point in my relationship where I felt he could do no wrong. I thought he had my back and that he d never steer me wrong.”

She added of recovering from the relationship’s demise in an interview with Elle Canada, “There was a time when my friends were actually like ‘We don’t recognize you anymore.’ ”
Regardless, there seems to be no awkwardness between the “Body on Me” singer and Harris’ new love. “I think she’s one of the most incredible songwriters of our generation,” Ora told Vice of Swift in an interview last year. “I’m not even just saying it. I absolutely adore her music and love what she stands for.”
Just a few weeks later, however, Barker appeared on Larry King Now, clarifying that Ora was “just a friend.”
