Update (June 11, 2014):
Was the breakup news to Rita? That’s what the latest round of rumors claims with sources saying Rita found out she and Calvin were done thanks to that tweet we mentioned in the original post. A source tells The Sun, “Rita was left embarrassed when he tweeted that it was all over. She didn’t think he was going to make the announcement, so she was shocked.”
We hope they’d talked about it all beforehand but if not, girlfriend is handling the surprise well. Just check out the risqué outfit she wore earlier this week!
Update (June 8, 2014):
Did Justin Bieber have something to do with Rita Ora and Calvin Harris's recent split? A TMZ source claims that Rita and the Biebs had been hanging out in a recording studio over the past few months and were getting "touchy-feely."
Calvin apparently got word that Rita would sit in Justin's lap and that Justin would rub her back, and these rumors are said to have led to Rita and Calvin's issues. If this is indeed true, it seems that Justin just can't stop causing trouble these days.
Original story (June 6, 2014):
Sadly, somebody let somebody down, because Rita Ora and Calvin Harris have split. The two, who collaborated on the hit song “I Will Never Let You Down,” have gone their separate ways, according to the DJ himself.
“To address speculation — myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best,” he tweeted June 6, acknowledging the gossip that’s been brewing in recent weeks, after Rita and Calvin were both frequently spotted flying solo.
The above-board conduct is a refreshing change of pace amid the kind of messy breakups we’ve come to expect from celebrities. We’re sure Rita in particular appreciates her beau of one year’s kind words after the nasty end she and Rob Kardashian went through when they broke up.
The British songstress and the reality TV star split in December 2012 after nearly a year together. In the months following the breakup, story after story percolated that things were anything but cordial between the two. Rob’s weight gain has even been tied to a depressing slump he fell into post-split.
Rita has yet to publicly respond to Calvin’s tweet or to acknowledge the breakup news. We’re wishing the best for these two as they move ahead!
