Rita Ora Discusses Secret Relationship With Bruno Mars
Singing sensation Rita Ora has revealed that she secretly dated Bruno Mars.
Rita discussed the unknown relationship with The Sun newspaper, explaining that fellow singer Bruno was her ‘first love’.
The pair first met shortly after Rita got signed to Jay-Z’s record label, Roc Nation in 2009, when Rita was just 18. Bruno, who was an unknown struggling songwriter at the time, was enlisted to write material for upcoming Rita.
It seemed it was love at first sight, as Rita admits she instantly thought: “Wow that’s just the world’s greatest guy!”
Rita went on to reveal more details about her relationship with Bruno: “Our time together was wonderful. But once we got famous, work got in the way. We ended it last year, but we remained close. When we were together we were so happy.”
Despite dating for over 2 years the relationship between the two stars was never public knowledge. Whether or not Bruno’s hit love songs Grenade, Just The Way You Are and Marry You were written about Rita, is not known, however it does seem the pair were together at the time, so is more than likely the case.
Since rising to fame, Rita has been linked to a number or famous names including Drake and Tinie Tempah.
Rita is currently dating reality star Rob Kardashian, brother to the Kardashian sisters and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Rita however seems keen to play down the romance, discussing their relationship as a friendship, despite Rob’s public announcements of being head-over-heels in love with the star.
