Rita Ora’s Complete Dating History – Who Has Rita Ora Dated?

After appearing on DJ Fresh’s single “Hot Right Now”, which reached #1 in the UK and dropping her debut album ‘Ora’ which also peached at No. 1 in the U.K, British singer and actress, Rita Ora, has remained a name to reckon with in the industry as her songs have continued to top the U.K charts. In 2017, two singles from her upcoming album, “Anywhere” and “Your Song” reached the UK top-ten.

Her third single “Girls” from the upcoming album dropped in May 2018. Although the song which featured notable artists like Bebe Rexha, Charli XCX, and Cardi B was well received by many as a bisexual anthem, some lyrics from the song, didn’t go down well with American singer/songwriter Hayley Kiyoko.

“Girls” contains lyrics like: “I ain’t one-sided, I’m open-minded, I’m 50-50 and I’m never gonna hide it,” and Kiyoko who is openly a lesbian feels the message the song passes does more harm than good to the LGBTQ+ community. She added that a song like that fuels the male gaze and marginalizes the idea of women loving women.

The “Everywhere” artist quickly apologised to the LGBTQ+ community, stating that she never meant to harm or offend the community with her song but only hoped that her art will empower her fans to feel as proud of themselves as she is learning to feel about who she is.

The new single was Rita Ora’s way of clearing the air about her sexual orientation and this has got fans who didn’t know her as bisexual, wanting to know more about her past relationships and who she has dated over the years.
