Rita Ora graces the cover of this month’s Marie Claire. The British singing sensation joined Jay Z’s Rocknation in 2009. Since then, she has dropped a host of number one singles on the UK pop charts. However, what she has to say about her ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, has most people talking. Considering Harris’ new girlfriend is Taylor Swift, could the next Swift hit just be a few months away?
Rita Ora and Calvin Harris dated for about a year. At first, it was thought that it was a mutual decision that the two stars part company. However, according to Ora in the recent interview in the October issue of Marie Claire, that might not be the case.
“There was a reason why I split up with him… 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. But then ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ came out, and everything started to go a bit weird. I don’t know if it was because business was mixed with personal or what.”
The latest from Rita Ora lends credence to the OK! Magazine report from July where some of Swift’s friends had thought Harris was making eyes at Gigi Hadid.
“Taylor’s friends started to notice that he was pursuing a friendship with her. They don’t trust him, but they’re trying to support Taylor because they know how much she’s in love with him.”
“Calvin has been liking Gigi’s pictures and her selfies on Instagram the minute they’re posted.”
OK! also mentioned that the attention Harris has been giving Hadid was enough to make Swift confront him about it. Harris claimed it was just him being excited about Hadid possibly appearing in a new video he was working on. It should be noted that Gigi has been seeing Joe Jonas as of late.
If Calvin does have his eye on another woman, he is keeping his cards awfully cost to the vest. He spoke with Entertainment Tonight in July. He was openly gushing about the time he gets to spend with Taylor.
“It’s interesting because obviously there’s different things written about it every day and even if we don’t do anything publicly for a while, someone will make something up. For me it could be a lot worse, and I’d still be, like, insanely happy with her so I’m good with it.”
What do you think about the comments from Rita Ora? Taylor Swift has been known to make hit after hit about her past relationship problems. Could Calvin Harris be the next man that she finds inspiration from?
