Rita Ora and Dakota Johnson have become the center of lesbian rumors lately. First, there were the rumors about a possible lesbian scene in the new Fifty Shades Darker film. Now, the rumors are swirling that the co-stars are secretly dating.
Dakota Johnson and Rita Ora made the romance rumors swirl with their flirty social media posts. Ora was recently spotted on the set of the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise where she plays the role of Mia Grey, Christian Grey’s sexy and vivacious younger sister. Some onlookers have noticed that Ora has been spending most of her break time with Johnson than with their other co-stars. This has even led the fans to speculate that the two are just more than good friends.
On the official Fifty Shades of Grey Instagram account as well as Ora’s personal account, Ora has taken several photos of Johnson. She even shared a photo of Johnson kissing her cheek, and the two of them enjoying the great outdoors. That photo showed the two hugging each other as they looked at the beautiful scenery in front of them.
However, it’s possible that these two are just enjoying their blossoming onset friendship. It’s not an indication that Ora and Johnson are having an affair. Johnson was rumored to have had an affair with a very happily married Jamie Dornan in the past, but it turned out to be buzz for the movie. In addition to the Instagram posts, Ora has also taken to her personal Snapchat account to share some cute clips of her and Johnson goofing around on the set of the film.

There are also reports surfacing that Johnson has split from her on-and-off boyfriend, Matthew Hitt, after two years of dating. A source confirmed to Us Weekly on Tuesday, June 7 that the two have decided to go their separate ways. During a September 2015 interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Johnson revealed that she was single at the time. In addition, Us Weekly previously reported that Johnson and Hitt split back in February 2015 since Johnson’s career has been taking off.
“Her life was getting too crazy and it wasn’t something that he wanted to be a part of,” the source told the outlet.
Johnson and Hitt then briefly reunited in May, but appear to be over for good. Ora has been the center of lesbian rumors before. The Daily Mail reported back in January 2015 that she looked very cozy with her former BFF Cara Delevingne at the Golden Globes.
“Rita copped a feel of the model’s derriere in a cheeky photo wearing a Zac Posen Spring 2015 Ruby Red Crêpe -bonded-Neoprene Architectural Gown taken at the Weinstein Company and Netflix after-party sponsored by Heineken in Los Angeles.”
Ora has supposedly spoken out about her close relationship with the openly bisexual model. She joked that she has taken Delevingne “off the market,” and she had “strictly no time” for men, according to Pink News.
“She’s officially mine. She’s, like, untouchable. I’ve taken her off the market. We call each other ‘wifey’… You know what a wifey means? It’s like your other half. Like when you get married, like, that’s your wife! Cara’s in New York for Fashion Week so she couldn’t make this week. I’m a bit sad. Of course, we talk all the time – she was just texting me now.”
She went to explain how the two friends met, saying, “I met Cara a long time ago at a festival. We hung out because we have a few mutual friends.” But Ora and Delevingne haven’t been seen together since last year. And both have deleted the photos of each other on their respective Instagram pages.
Ora is also rumored to be dating Justin Bieber. Although the two artists have reportedly been secretly recording music together, the pair has been sparking the dating rumors since their last outing in Hollywood. An insider told Hollywood Life that the Biebs wants to do more than just make music with the pop star. He’s hoping that they could have a friends-with-benefits type relationship.
“Justin is mixing business with pleasure hanging with Rita. They have been working on a secret collaboration for a while and sparks have been flying. Rita is open-minded and not looking for a commitment from Justin or anything like that. Justin is always down for a good time with Rita too. They enjoy spending time together. Making good music is just a bonus.”
Meanwhile, a source told People that the pair looked “super friendly” and “not romantic” during their night out together.
Filming for Fifty Shades Darker will end on July 8, while Fifty Shades Freed will begin shooting in Vancouver in a few months. What are your thoughts? Do you think that Rita Ora and Dakota Johnson are dating, or just good friends? Sound off below in the comments section.
