Calvin Harris, the Scottish DJ-singer, and Rita Ora, the British singer-actress’ break-up news resurfaced as she came out in the open accusing him of sabotaging her hit single, ‘I will never let you down’ by not allowing it to be played in the Teen Choice Awards in 2014.
She told Mirror that she had got carried away and distracted by her soured relationship with Calvin Harris and that she sulked as she was very hurt. Hence, she put everything on hold including her second album on which she had started work when the split with the Scottish DJ was going through a bad patch, according to Belfast Telegraph. She told her fans that although her ‘personal issues’ made her career take a backseat, the rumor that her second album is not going so well is not at all true, she added.
Her hit single ‘I will never let you down’, a collaborative venture with her ex-boyfriend hit the charts last year; but Calvin Harris banned it from being played in the Teen Choice Awards in August 2014. He defended his action when he tweeted his reaction to the issue,’ you’ll only know one side of the story RE Teen choice awards because I choose not to talk about every aspect of my personal life. But just know I had a damn good reason.
The British singer told Marie Claire that there was a reason she split with Harris. It was a time when she was in awe of him, was very confident of their relationship and was under the impression that he was taking care of her. But when ‘I will never let you down’ happened, something seemed to go wrong, she added and said that maybe the reason was that their personal and professional lives got mixed up.
In June 2014, Calvin Harris took to Twitter to confirm their split wishing her happiness and the very best for her future life. Ora also tweeted the break-up confirmation as she wrote, ‘I don’t usually address speculation but I’ve had an incredible time with Calvin, and I will treasure the memories.’
The two singers have now moved on in their love life and while Calvin Harris is dating Taylor Swift, the American singer-songwriter. Swift and Harris started seeing each other in March when the celebrity couple was first seen together shopping in Nashville sporting similar outfits. The couple was then seeing getting cozy in the audience at a Kenny Chesney concert. The relationship was finally admitted to the public when Taylor Swift openly kissed Calvin Harris at the Billboard Music Awards 2015 at LA in May.
In an earlier interview with Kiss FM UK, the DJ-singer spoke about the ‘Blank Space’ singer in gushing tones, ‘It’s going fantastic. It’s interesting because obviously, there’re different things written about it every day and even if we don’t do anything public for a while, someone will make it 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.’
Rita Ora is presently rumored to be with Wiz Khalifa, and she is known to have dated Ricky Hil, the rapper and son of Tommy Hilfiger.
