Dealing with a breakup is never fun, but for Rita Ora? She’s had to handle it via Twitter. On June 6, her former boyfriend Calvin Harris tweeted that the couple was no more, although Calvin’s tweet was super sweet and respectful of his ex.
“To address speculation — myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago,” Calvin’s tweet said. “She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best.”
Now, Rita’s responding for the the first time since their breakup became public, and she’s handling the end of their relationship with the maturity and grace we’d expect of the 23-year-old songstress.
“I don’t usually address speculation but I’ve had an incredible time w Calvin, & I will treasure the memories,” Rita tweeted June 11. “I’ve moved on from this topic so I hope people will respect that and do the same.”
Reportedly, Rita didn’t find out that she and Calvin were officially over until she saw Calvin’s tweet last week, but we’re hoping that’s not the case. If it is, though, Rita deserves some major props for how well she’s dealing — and extra props for taking the high road with her sweet tweet. The reason behind their breakup is still unknown, although the rumor mill is churning out the idea that Justin Bieber may have had something to do with it. Yikes!
Now that the news is out, though, Rita and Calvin can officially take on the next stage of their lives. Good luck as you move on to the next adventure, you two!
