Singer Rita Ora Tries To Silence Critics By Posting Photo With New Boyfriend

If you haven't heard, people aren't a big fan of British singer Rita Ora at the moment. The 27-year-old managed to stir up some classic social media hatred with just two words: 'Date Night'.

The 'Anywhere' artist uploaded two snaps of her sitting next to MMA champion Conor McGregor while at the British Fashion Awards in London. While it seemed to some to be tongue-in-cheek, her post on Twitter and Instagram was flooded with angry comments.

Critics are mainly upset at the idea that, because they both have partners, it's wrong to sit next each other and look like they enjoy their company.

But Rita has tried to chill everyone out by uploading another picture on her Instagram page. This time it is with her actual boyfriend, Andrew Watt.

Rita also chucked up an image of her with Donatella Versace with the caption, 'Last night with my real date'. But that didn't stop the comments from being piled onto her accounts.

Julie wrote: "Oi mate, you've got a woman at home who's stuck by you from day one, gave you a kid and devotes her life to your sport. Stop messing around." (sic)

Klaudia added: "He should have a respect for his wife at the first place and don't look at Rita like she's a piece of meat or something."

Even McGregor's teammate, Artem Lobov, said: "Sorry Rita, Burgers are nice but not when a man has steak at home."

One thing that probably doesn't sit well with some about Rita is the rumours that she once had a fling with Jay Z behind Beyonce's back. When Beyonce dropped her album, Lemonade, she referred to 'Becky with the good hair' in the song 'Sorry'.


Immediately, people started trying to find out who this mysterious 'Becky' is, and the masses settled on Rita. She tried to shut down the haters by writing on social media: "I never usually address tabloid gossip but, let me be clear, these rumours are false.

"I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let's continue enjoying Lemonade."

A source close to the star told the Mirror that she was 'mortified' at being labelled a home wrecker and that the allegations against her were completely 'unfounded'.

But that didn't stop her social media accounts being filled with people leaving bee emojis in the comments section.
