Rita Ora Not Dating Drake, But They Are Good Friends

R&B star Rita Ora shot down rumors that have been circulating lately that she has been getting personal with Drake–according to her, the two are just “good friends.”

Ora, Jay Z’s protege, joined up with Drake to work on her debut single, R.I.P., which Drake wrote himself–but that’s not what got the rumors started. After recording her single, Ora reportedly supported Drake while he was in the U.K. for his paradise tour, sparking speculation that the two were getting close.

To fuel the fire even further, there were unverified reports circulating the internet in April that Ora and Drake were spotted kissing backstage at an event in the U.K. Ora insists that it’s all untrue, however.

“We’re really good friends actually,” Rita told the Associated Press. “He has my back so it’s really nice to know I have a guy that’s a good friend like that.”

On Tuesday, the 21-year-old singer threw a party in London to celebrate R.I.P. hitting the number one spot in the U.K. iTunes store. The AP went on to report that the paparazzi were hanging around outside of the party, and Ora seemed surprisingly thrilled about it.

Ora said, “I’m like, oh my God, they care!”
