Last week, it was reported that Rita Ora and boyfriend of six months Ricky Hil had SPLIT after Rita supposedly dumped the rapper to focus on her hectic career.
But now the two have been pictured holding hands and generally looking pretty chuffed to be in each other’s company, and we’re starting to wonder whether the whole split thing was a giant lump of BS.
If this is what a split looks like, then we’ve clearly been going wrong our entire lives.
Rita and Ricky, both 24, were spotted arriving at On the Rox in LA, putting on a lovely united front as they arrived in some, erm, interesting ensembles ranging from Rita’s all leather EVERYTHING to Ricky’s bizarre denim top thing.
Each to their own and all.
The couple dispelled all the split rumours that have been doing the rounds as they walked along hand-in-hand, looking super sweet and loved-up in time for Christmas.
Guess you won’t need that gift receipt after all, Ricky.
Explaining the split last week, a source told The Mirror: “Rita is so busy she is just flat out at the moment.
“She’s recording The Voice on BBC1, she has campaigns for make-up, clothing and a perfume coming out.
“Not to mention featuring in a Hollywood film, performing for the Obamas this week and recording her second album.
“Realistically, she doesn’t have time for a steady relationship. It’s not acrimonious – they just sort of drifted apart.”
AOH this is sad. Although, thinking about it, we haven’t seen the two pictured looking loved-up in a while… until now, of course.
The source added: “They had a great time in Marrakech last month for her birthday but since then she has been working non-stop in the States.
“As much as she liked Ricky, her career is her priority at the moment, while he’s working on his own album.
“They do share a lot of mutual friends, though, so they’re bound to stay in touch.
“However it’s just not practical to be together right now.”
Fingers crossed they can keep things friendly and their split won’t get as nasty as Rita’s previous break-ups with Calvin Harris and Rob Kardashian.
We’re glad the two look like they’ve got their relationship right back on track for the most wonderful time of the year, because they look really good together don’t they?
Yes. Yes they do.
Good luck, guys!
