“It was Love at First Sight!” Rita Ora Admits she Used to Date Bruno Mars

Sorry Rob Kardashian, you might want to cover your ears because Rita Ora has said that the time she spent with Bruno Mars was amazing...


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you’ll know that there have been a lot of rumours flying around the place about Rita Ora and Rob Kardashian. He says they’re a couple – she passionately denies it. Are they together? Are they not? Who knows!

But it seems as though Rob isn’t the only man who has his eye on Rita Ora. Apparently, Bruno Mars was once the singer’s main squeeze. Yes, really.

The Irish Independent reports that Rita Ora has revealed that yes, she did used to date Bruno Mars. Apparently it was “love at first sight” as soon as Rita laid eyes on Bruno – and who said romance was dead, eh?

According to reports, Rita divulged some details about her time with Bruno to a German magazine recently.

“We met in 2009. I was 18 and starting out at Roc Nation. Bruno was unknown back then too,” said Rita.

“He was a struggling songwriter hired to write songs for me. I thought, ‘Wow, that’s just the world’s greatest guy!’” she said.

Rita’s famous ex: the one and only Bruno Mars.

The good news is that Rita and Bruno didn’t end things on bad terms. In fact, they actually managed to remain friends once they split up.

“Our time together was wonderful. But once we got famous, work got in the way. We ended it last year. But we remained close. And when we were together we were so happy,” she added.

Hmm…we wonder if Bruno’s song Marry You is about the R.I.P singer? Who knows!

And as for those Rob Kardashian rumours? Well, Rita blasted the fake reports in Glamour magazine and confirmed that she isn’t dating Rob, she’s just “really tight” with him, Kim and the rest of the Kardashian clan.

“They’re not true, but we’re good friends. Really…like, we’re tight,” said Rita, when she was asked about Rob.

“Kim’s a cool girl. She’s so pretty. I was a fan of her show, I love reality TV. The first time I met her was at a ‘Watch The Throne’ show, and I liked her bum. I was like, ‘Kim, I love your show.’ We had some dinner when she was over recently with Kanye. It was nice to catch up,” she added, speaking about Rob’s older sister.

What do you think ladies? Do you think Rob Kardashian and Rita Ora would make a cute couple?
