We may have only heard about Rita Ora and Calvin Harris’ split on Friday, but the DJ confirmed on his Twitter account that they had split “some time ago.” Rita has since been since out and about in West Hollywood wearing a racy black minidress and looking like a single lady on the prowl. Although neither Rita nor Calvin have explicitly said what the cause of their split was, TMZ have been reporting that it has something to do with Justin Bieber. Of course it does, if there’s any sort of trouble in celebrity land, let’s all just assume it’s got something to do with Bieber. In between getting baptised in New York hotel rooms could it be that he's a home wrecker too?

So, what exactly are TMZ saying then? Well, apparently Rita and Justin were getting pretty “touchy feely” while they’ve been in the recording studio together over the past few months. Calvin heard that they had been a little over friendly - apparently Rita would sit on Justin’s lap and he would massage her back, and the DJ, unsurprisingly, wasn’t happy about it.

She is a beautiful, talented woman and I wish her all the best.” It seems like a pretty amiable split from the message that he posted on Twitter, although reports are coming through that he very speedily had all of her belongings removed from his LA home and isn’t allowing the songs that he produced for her to be released.
While Rita was seen partying it up in Hollywood, Harris was spotted leaving another Hollywood nightclub, Hooray Henry’s, surrounded by a gang of girls, including a redhead and brunette who got into a car with him at the end of the night.

This isn’t the first time in recent months that rumours of Rita and another man have surfaced. When a radio host asked her about reports that had surfaced regarding an affair with Roc Nation boss Jay-Z, Ora replied, “Don’t you dare disrespect Beyonce like that ever again in your whole life.” Ora made this comment back in April when she also discussed Calvin Harris. It seemed like the pair were still together when she gave the interview as she told the radio host, “I think [he’s] ready for us to go away together, I haven’t been away with him in a long time. I want to take my weave out, so it will be nice to spend some quality time.” Right…
