Gerard Butler, one of Hollywood’s male heartthrobs and notorious playboys, is apparently back at the game again. This time the actor is apparently hooking up with British singer Rita Ora.
Rumor has it in the recent release by Life & Style that the Gods of Egypt actor parted ways from his girlfriend of nearly a year, Ms. Morgan Brown, because things were reportedly getting a bit too serious for the actor.
An apparent source close to the actor relayed info about the recent break up between the two to the gossip publication.
“Gerard broke things off with her. Gerard really thought this was it. [But when talk turned to marriage] he just started dragging his feet about proposing, and then he just got a major case of cold feet.”
As noted, it hasn’t taken long for the handsome star to move on from his recent break-up and woes that may have accompanied. Wonderwall shares that Butler may be enjoying his time with Rita Ora, although claims are yet to be verified.
The publication shares on the apparent development between Butler and Ora.
“Gerard and British singer Rita Ora hooked up in mid-January at a Los Angeles hotel. The two, the magazine said, had an intimate dinner at the hotel before heading up to a room together. ‘They drank wine and she hugged him when he returned to the table from a break,’ an onlooker said. ‘Gerard paid the bill.'”
A pal of the actor also shared that Gerard is far from heartbroken over his recent split from Brown.
“He’s totally single and ready to get back out there.”
Ora seems to be as well after ending a number of relationships in the recent past — two of which include those with Rob Kardashian, who is now linked to Blac Chyna, and D.J Calvin Harris, who has been dating Taylor Swift for a little less than a year’s time.
Us Weekly further perpetuated the latest rumor about Butler and Ora, sharing reasons that the two are actually quite suitable for one another and sharing details about their most recent hook up.
” [T]he British X Factor judge is just his type. While Ora has claimed previous suitors have been ‘intimidated’ by her, Butler has said he’s attracted to ‘confident’ women.”
As convincing as this recent “hook up” story that has been relayed by a number of tabloids and gossip magazines seems, the celebrity gossip police, Gossip Cop, has done what it does best and relays that there is actual no truth to the rumor that the pair actually hooked up at the hotel that evening. The only truth is that Butler did, in fact, pay for dinner that night. The celebrity news site shares on the facts of the interaction between the stars.
“[There] are no sources who have any details beyond Butler paying the bill for dinner. Gossip Cop, however, checked in with several sources, and not one could confirm that Butler and Ora “shacked up,” as Us Weekly alleged. In fact, one source close to the actor exclusively assures Gossip Cop there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s report.”
Therefore, the insinuation that Rita and Butler followed their dinner at the Hollywood hotel by hooking up is not at all verified. Perhaps the two are simply dating and working towards a more consistent relationship as a result. Although Butler seems a bit of a playboy, he did manage a full-year relationship, and maybe this time Rita will be the one who gets Butler past the cold feet. That being stated, the two could simply be enjoying one another’s company in the short term.
