Rita Ora has opened up about her split with Scottish singer/DJ Calvin Harris. The 24-year-old singer and X-Factor judge who dated the 31-year-old DJ for about a year spoke to Marie Claire magazine about what caused their breakup.
"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," she said. "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."
In June 2014, Harris confirmed that the two had split up on Twitter. He tweeted: "To address speculation - myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best."
Ora also took to her account to address the reports. She wrote: "I don't usually address speculation but I've had an incredible time w Calvin,& i will treasure the memories."
Harris has moved on in his love life, and is dating American singer/songwriter Taylor Swift. Reports that Harris and Swift are dating started earlier in March, when the two were pictured shopping in Nashville, dressed similarly. Later, the two were spotted at a Kenny Chesney concert, getting cosy in the audience. The couple made their relationship public when Swift kissed Harris during the Billboard Music Awards 2015, held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on 17 May.
Previously, during an interview with Kiss FM UK, the music producer gushed about the 25-year-old Bad Blood hitmaker. "It's going absolutely fantastic. 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," Harris said.
