Did Rita Ora & Calvin Harris split because she hooked up with Justin Bieber?

Rita Ora

These are photos of a newly single Rita Ora looking rather understated (for her) at Bootsy Bellows on Friday. Rita had been dating Calvin Harris for about 20 months. I don’t know much about Calvin other than he’s a celebrity DJ. Rita’s music gives me headaches, and her street style is Gaga-esque at best, but I don’t hold that against her as a person.

Calvin’s been stepping out recently with other women. He was spotted with a mystery girl a few days ago, and he dined with Rosie Huntington-Whitely on Friday (did Rosie break up with Jason Statham?). Calvin noticed the online speculation, so he announced his split with Rita on Twitter: “To address speculation — myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best.” He kept things respectful, which is the opposite of Rita’s breakup with Rob Kardashian. Thank goodness.

TMZ has a theory on Rita and Calvin’s breakup and says she’s been fooling around with Justin Bieber. They say Justin and Rita have been hooking up for months, which is the reason for her breakup with Calvin. Swaggy’s been hiding out in Mexico during his tear-filled, racist scandal, and Rita flew down to see him. Hmm:

Justin Bieber is at the center of the break-up of deejay Calvin Harris and Rita Ora … and let’s just say it wasn’t because Justin was into Calvin.

Our sources say … word got back to Calvin, Justin and Rita got “touchy feely” with each other while they were in the recording studio together over the last few months. Calivn heard they were very affectionate — she would sit on his lap, he would rub her back, etc.

Justin was down in Mexico for the last few days … and not coincidentally RIta was there as well.

For Calvin’s’ part … he was out in Hollywood earlier this week with a slew of women … and when we asked him about Rita hanging out with Bieber, he gave a very telling response.

Sources close to Harris and Rita tell TMZ … he’s already had her things removed from his L.A. house. We’re also told he produced a few songs for her, but now he won’t allow their release.

It’s all about the release.

Well … Calvin seems pretty bland, but Bieber would definitely be a downgrade. A serious downgrade. I wouldn’t put it past Rita to have a fling with Justin in the midst of her breakup trauma, but even that’s a stretch. C’mon. We’ve heard all sorts of stories about Swaggy hooking up with extremely hot models in Cannes. Those tales were ridiculous and sounded completely fabricated. Is this story about Rita and Justin hooking up in Mexico any more believable?

    Calvin Harris needs a stylist to help him learn his proportions – he’s a tall lanky guy but every time I see photos of him, he’s wearing shirts that are way too long and it looks like he has an extremely long torso, and then his pants are never fit right so his body looks off balance.

  2. Ali J says:

    Rita Rita Rita. What a mistake! Nexton the list will be an actor i guess. James Franco?

  3. maichan says:

    Even Franco would be better than the Biebs…. I guess…??

    • kri says:

      Oh, man. I cannot believe anyone other than a fan or a hooker would willingly bang The Racist Toddler. I would vomit if I saw him in person. He’s so tiny and oily all the time. Oh, gross.

  4. huh says:

    So she effed him for tracks and now it’s not even getting released? She has no game

  5. Lucretia says:

    Classy Calvin Harris tweet anouncing breakup. Unlike some other breakup tweets I’ve seen.

  6. boston says:

    Justin Bieber should stop feeding the press with stories about who he hooked up with. It´s ridiculous.

  7. Marieeeee says:

    This girl just always looks so trashy to me. I can never quite pinpoint exactly what it is that does it. Is it because her hair shouldn’t be blonde? The harsh red lipstick she loves? Her constant slightly-confused-yet-trying-to-look-pretentious expression? I don’t know, but I just can’t deal with her face.

    • whipmyhair says:

      I think it’s the wrong colour for her. With her tan skin (I don’t know enough about her to know if it is natural or an enthusiastic spray tanner.) with her almost platinum hair- it just screams tacky. A dirtier, darker blonde would look better on her.

    • Girl using brain says:

      Thank god I’m not the only one! Everytime I see a picture of her I think she’s in need of a shower.

    • Patty Cake says:

      I think the same thing when I see Kesha with greasy ass hair and hella glitter all over her face. I just wished Kesha would shampoo her hair and bath the stank off. Lately, she’s been looking a lot better though.

    • Jill says:

      I don’t think she looks pretentious at all. She does look a little trashy, but it reminds me of the 90’s, so I like it.

  8. Pri says:

    For some reason I feel bad this happened. They look good together. So what if she dresses a little freaky. The fact they both are soo different personality wise yet got together was something to me….
    But Justin the Beaver??? Sheesh. That’s just. SHEESH!
    So, I guess they both are kinda the same. She’s spotted with Beaver. He with a bevy of randoms. Huh.

    • Rose says:

      Yeah I liked Calvin and Rita together too. I hope these rumors aren’t true about her and Justin. I did notice she is a touchy feely kind of person bc she somehow always touches the person who’s interviewing her. She has a flirty nature. Maybe Calvin didn’t like that.

  9. Ag-UK says:

    I knew she was doomed when she started about how he made her feel this that and he made her feel real love etc . She seemed too needy and def a minimal talent. I doubt she hooked up with little man.

    • Julie says:

      She has a great voice, especially when she does acoustic stuff. She can’t really dance though, but she sings better than most of today’s pop stars.

    • Hello says:

      I agree with Julie, people might not like her, her look or her personal choices but Rita Ora CAN sing very well so it baffles me when people say she has not talent, and I am not even a fan.

      • Tyler says:

        I think some people just like to pile on the insults if they don’t like someone for whatever reason. She can sing. It’s not even an opinion.

  10. Dame Snarkweek says:

    Her name has been popping up a lot lately in the other woman department. Either she’s the victim of mean gossip or she’s been a busy girl lately. She reminds me of Keisha Cole in some pics.
    Something good…real boobs?

  11. nicegirl says:

    Does her LBD have pockets? That is very cute

  12. lisa says:

    Rita is developing quite the reputation. All of that and not an ounce of career advancement.

  13. Mojoman says:

    She looks like a VERY poor man’s version of Rihanna, if you tilt your head and cross your eyes.

  14. Side-Eye says:

    I still can’t name a track from her.

    • Reece says:

      Me neither. I only know of her because of Kardashian and her clothing choices.

      • minime says:

        I only know Rob Kardashian because of her…
        I’m not a fan, but she has one or two nice songs in a very personal style (that I know of). I mean, they want to make her the next Rihanna, but she sings a totally different kind of style, so I don’t get it.

        I also don’t get all the hate for her around here. Is that an American thing? She seems pretty harmless despite the bad fashion choices. She also never seemed to be very outspoken of her relationships, except with this last guy and just because TMZ says that she was with Bieber doesn’t really make it happen isn’t it? On the other hand, that Calvin guy has photos with several randoms all over the media, but she is the one coming bad mouthed out of this. Talk about misogyny.

        P.S. My comment is not directed to you, I just started with the Kardashian guy and it developed from there 😉

    • SpookySpooks says:

      She had a few hits in the UK. People can be successful outside of the US, you know.

    • Hello says:

      Very well said minime and spooky spooks.

  15. Catriona says:

    Sheesh.. I’m no Rita fan but I can’t help but feel bad for her, girl must be going through heck. I mean, Calvin moved on with Rosie Huntington Whitely already. 🙁

    • Kelley says:

      He is not with Rosie, he went for dinner with her because he is friends with Jason Statham who was in one of his videos. Rosie and Jason was pictured together just last night. Calvin has been papped with different club girls every night. It looks like he is partying every day and picking up random girls in clubs. He seems a bit desperate like she broke his heart or something.

  16. Ashley says:

    Calvin Harris is cute. Seems like major downgrade especially since being his girlfriend should have opened more doors for her with other producers (he and Diplo are good friends and Diplo has his hand in a number of hits).

    I’ve never heard her music before so I’m afraid I only know her as being a massive ho (according to the tabloids) and hanging out with Iggy. Seems like a stupid move to cheat on some producer, and not get the tracks when your career clearly needs it (as evidenced by only being known for sleeping with lots of famous men and a Kardashian).

  17. Tpaz says:

    Why is she famous? I’ve never ever heard her music, only heard about her hooking up with semi famous people. Why do we care about her?

  18. Patty Cake says:

    It seems like a lot of people dog this girl hard like they would dog Zoe Saldana. Only difference is, I readily know what Zoe does, but I’ve never seen Rita’s work, but she seems nice enough. Then again, every music artist won’t be big in the US just because their big somewhere else. I’ll check out a few songs of hers to make my own judgement as to whether she’s talented or not.

    • Julie says:

      You should check out her acoustic performances. That’s where she really shines. I don’t know why they’re marketing her as another pop star when she has a soulful voice that sounds much better with acoustic tracks.

    • me says:

      The problem is she was introduced to America as “Rob Kardashian’s girlfriend” way before we heard one single song of her. Associating with the Kardashians did not help her career in America.

      • Patty Cake says:

        me, I wasn’t aware of that. I see your point with where you’re headed. I just think Americans should give her more of a chance. Tbh, I don’t see why folks hate Zoe, I like her. She always seems to be laid back whenever I read one of her interviews or see one of her interviews on tv.

  19. Lauren says:

    I don’t believe Rita would do this for a second especially with Bieber. He doesn’t even have the body of a man! No woman would throw themselves at him who wasn’t a teen girl. I refuse to believe that any woman who has been with a real man (Adriana Lima etc.) would get with him ever!

    On another note the Ellie Gouding fans were having a celebration on his instagram and hers. Calling her all sorts of nasty names and pathetically praying that he will now be with Ellie like he was always meant to be etc. Just all sorts of crazy. I am sure it will all be deleted if it hasn’t been already.

  20. lrm says:

    Um, these ‘hookups’ [alleged] are basically all PR and not in real life. Just like taylor swift and many other celebs and even A listers…we ‘hear’ something about them hanging out and most of the time, there are no pics. Honestly, did bieber sleep with victoria secret models and who leaked that info? It’s just PR for both-makes bieber seem like an adult and transitions him from teen star, and gives PR to the models, etc.

    I don’t know why blogs seem to always report this stuff as though it’s real. Pics or it didn’t happen, 9 times out of 10. IMHO, of course.

  21. SpookySpooks says:

    I’m not a huge fan of her music, but just becauae she’s not big in the US doesn’t mean she’s not big at all. Most of the world hasn’t heard of any country singer, but I don’t go on every Miranda Lambert post and ask Miranda who? every two seconds.

    • word says:

      She’s had 5 number one hits in the U.K. She’s really big there. For some reason, she’s hasn’t been able to really break through here. I think the U.S. is more interested in who she’s dating.

      • Godwina says:

        Like Harris, then, I guess. Big in their homeland, but “underground” so far in the US and Canada. I’ll have to check her out.

    • Bridget says:

      You are also on a website based in the US. Its not like you’re on a .uk site.

  22. Tina says:

    I find this Bieber thing a bit hard to believe but as for cheating Its pretty common knowledge that she is rumored to have cheated on him. Allegedly she plays for both teams and there are rumors that she cheated on him with women. She supposedly hooked up with a very famous female DJ last year.

    • LAK says:

      For a few months pre- Calvin she was with Cara Delevigne – the one dating Michelle Rodriguez.

  23. Kelley says:

    She was in mexico for her friends 30 b-day she was there with tons of friends. She wasnt there with bieber alone like TMZ said. This seems like the bieber is a stud PR machine.

  24. Godwina says:

    Ironically/reversies, I have no idea who Rita Ora is, but I have a Harris album (I Created Disco) and it’s amazing. If this celebuzz stateside gets more folks listening to him, nice. His lyrics are anything but “bland” IMO and his beats are fine.

    • Leah says:

      that album is pretty old, he used to be good but his music and persona changed a lot in recent years, he used to be this dopey looking guy that made great dance music. Then he had a make over, got a tan, fixed his teeth and started working out and jumped on the EDM bandwagon. Nowadays his music sounds all the same i.e bland mass produced chart music.

  25. Jocelyn says:

    I wanted to post something like “who is this?!”, but I decided to check her out first. Her music is whatever, but I really like her voice.

  26. kitty-bye says:

    Not sure of her or his appeal?
