Rita Ora was trying to start a beef with Dua Lipa at the Met Gala

I’m sorry to say that we didn’t cover Dua Lipa or Rita Ora at the Met Gala. Dua wore Versace and it wasn’t really campy, but I liked her look a lot (probably because I’m a Dua stan). Rita wore Marc Jacobs, as did Kate Moss. Kate and Rita posed together on the pink carpet for a while. While I’m a Dua stan, I realize that many people around here don’t really care about her. And maybe you care even less about Rita? I know that’s true for me – as much as Rita is a thing in the UK, she really never translated in America. I’m sure she has some American fans and all, but really… not many people care. Rita has tried to break into the American gossip world with a few controversies here and there, but people can’t even muster enough energy to care about her private life or private beefs either. So imagine my lack of shock that Rita is now trying to get headlines off of up-and-coming superstar Dua Lipa.

They were two of the most glamorous guests at the A-list Met Gala — both looking typically stunning as they worked the red carpet in New York. But beneath the glitzy surface I can reveal a secret feud has driven a wedge between once close pals Dua Lipa and Rita Ora — who both went to the same school in the UK after moving from their native Kosovo.

I’m told Dua quietly turned on Rita over constant comparisons between the pair — and relations are now so strained they avoided each other at Monday night’s big charity ball. An insider said: “It’s a shame, as they used to be very close and Dua spoke a lot about how much she admired Rita. Dua even said she wanted to be just like Rita in the future. But now things have gone south dramatically and she is trying to distance herself — and she’s making no secret of it in the industry. Rita is desperate to avoid confrontation and went out of her way to make sure they didn’t come face to face.

“She hates the drama but really wanted to go to the Met Gala and didn’t want a row to stop that. She went with her designer friend Marc Jacobs and Kate Moss, so she still had a great night — as did Dua, who was there with her boyfriend Isaac Carew.”

Rita is 28 years old and she’ll likely never really become a force in the American pop music mainstream. Dua is 23 and becoming a bigger deal in American and international pop music every day. It feels like… Rita is the one who has more to gain from attaching herself to Dua’s name, really. Dua has tried to make “beefing with Rihanna” or “beefing with Jay-Z and Beyonce” into a thing, except few people even cared about that. Now she’s trying to make it about a Dua Lipa beef. Leave Dua alone!

    Do you want us to actually believe something from The Sun?

    • Mei says:

      Lmao right? Same trash as the Daily Sh*t. This is tame/inoffensive ‘news’ but really not worth the (little) brainpower. It’s still not sold in Liverpool and other places across North West England because of their effed up reporting of the Hillsborough tragedy.

    yayyyyyy Kate!!!

  3. T says:

    I think you mean *Rita tried making beefing with Rihanna/JayZ/Beyonce a thing, not Dua.

  4. BlueOrange says:

    Rita Ora looks so full of Botox or fillers and it actually looks like it’s ages her. Kate moss is still stunning!

  5. Tasha says:

    I dunno if she’s even considered that famous in the UK. I can only ever remember one or two songs. She’s in the tabloids more than the charts. Her 15 minutes are dragging on a bit for my liking….

  6. Alissa says:

    Rita has been trying to be a thing in America for a longtime and the only thing I know her for is dating Rob Kardashian and that she keeps trying to get noticed.

  7. clairej says:

    Rita does NOT belong at The Met Gala. Most guest didn’t. My friend stood next to Kate at the bar at the Q Awards a year or two ago and said she is really rough. Don’t care as I think she is amazing.

  8. Chrissie says:

    Has anyone ever seen a photo of them together? They’re hardly ‘close pals’ and probably didn’t even got to school at the same time with that age gap.

    I’m thinking this is just bs from The Sun…
