Rita Ora maintains a low profile when it comes to the dating rumors and romantic endeavors, but the pop star has been caught snuggling up to one man in particular lately. In fact, Rita was getting cheeky with rumored new boyfriend Andrew Watt.
The 25-year-old singer was recently spotted on a romantic getaway to Rome with Andrew Watt. Rita Ora was seen walking around with the Watt around the city, with both of the musicians dressed down. Ora was recognizable in her getup, which consisted of a black-and-white baseball T-shirt and black pants with white stripes going down each side. Meanwhile, Watt wore a leather jacket with plaid pants. He was also seen grabbing Ora’s behind as they walked through the city, as reported via The Sun.

The two were then seen sitting on the steps of the Piazza di Spagna where they cuddled with each other in front of everyone to see. Andrew kissed Rita’s forehead as she rested her head on his shoulder. In case you didn’t know, the 25-year-old musician used to be part of California Breed alongside Deep Purple and Black Sabbath frontman Glenn Hughes and drummer Jason Bonham. The band has split since 2015, but Andrew has been working behind the scenes by co-writing DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s song “Let Me Love You.”

Over the summer, Rita Ora was making the rumor mill talk about her recent sighting with Justin Bieber. The two were seen leaving the same nightclub in West Hollywood while wearing similar outfits, with their hoods pulled over their heads. Ora has been linked to various men, including Formula One race car driver Lewis Hamilton and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker. Ora got out of a relationship with rapper Tommy Hilfiger’s edgy son Ricky Hil, who’s also a rapper. She also has dated Rob Kardashian and DJ Calvin Harris.

But her latest fling with Watt is making news across the pond. Earlier this month, Rita was seen holding an issue of the Sun as she arrived at Heathrow Airport with Andrew. The two are in Rome to celebrate Rita’s sister Elena’s 28th birthday, reports the British newspaper. Rita was seen wearing the same pants she wore while walking around the city with Andrew. During that time, she paired it with a leather motorcycle jacket, a black-and-white graphic print T-shirt, a black motorcycle hat, and black ankle boots. She kept her head down and maintained a low profile as she listened to music through her earphones while walking through the airport.

The pair were first linked together last month. According to Just Jared, Watt and Ora are just friends and have been busy making music together at various recording studios. It looks like their work relationship has since turned romantic since the Daily Mail cites their recent trip as a “romantic getaway.” Ora previously opened up to Vanity Fair about why she wants to keep her private life and relationships out of the news.
“I think in general I’ve learned my lesson to not talk about relationships and gossip because I’ve been at the center of it a few times and it’s not worth it. And I have been heartbroken … just once. Love is so great, but it can be the most dangerous thing on planet earth. People do crazy things when it comes to jealousy and love.”
Before when she was linked to Watt, X Factor U.K. winner James Arthur revealed he had a fling with the singer, as reported via Digital Spy. He wasn’t too shy about opening up about their brief affair. He told Evening Standard that he and Ora dated “on-and-off for a few months,” but there were genuine feelings between them. According to Arthur, Ora “had a lot of feelings” for him. Ora has not responded to the claims and it’s unlikely she will.
