Rita Ora may have had a messy breakup with Calvin Harris, but she’s admitted that she’s ready to move on. Except there’s one man she’s happy to not hookup with, and it’s the same man who collaborated with Rita on a song that is sure to be a hit – Ed Sheeran.
Ora, who recently premiered her latest single, “Poison,” revealed to Noisey that she was working with the guitar-playing ballad-writing Sheeran on a special song.

And apparently Ora wants to keep it that way.
“It’s amazing having a friend in this industry of the opposite sex that you haven’t hooked up with,” Ora added.
And if he hadn’t been friend-zoned enough by those comments, Ora had more to say.
“He’s such a legend. I respect him in so many ways.”
And according to Ahlan, “Rita Ora says she’ll never date Ed Sheeran.”
While she may never date him, Ora trusts him enough to write with him.
And part of what she’s written about includes her past relationship with former collaborator and Taylor Swift’s current beau, Calvin Harris. Rita stated that her latest musical efforts will feature “complaining about all [her] s**ty love stories,” but will also show “gratitude and appreciation” for everything she’s been through.
Perhaps it was her past relationship that has Ora a little gun-shy about turning her best friend into another hookup.
Rita accompanied Sheeran while he performed at Rock in Rio, and the two were seen having a good time well into the wee hours of the morning gambling in the casino.
