Rita Ora claims she's never dated Nick Jonas.

The 'RIP' hitmaker has shot down rumours she's been in a relationship with the 21-year-old singer after he name-dropped her in his band's song 'What Do I Mean To You'.

Speaking on 'Watch What Happens Live!' last night, Rita explained: ''I never dated him. I actually met Nick through a friend and it was a very weird situation because we were close, but it never went to that level and then I read the lyric and I kind of messaged him and was like, 'I have no idea where this came from. If you want to talk about it, call me'.

Although, despite insisting they never became an item, the 23-year-old star admits the hunk did have a crush on her.

She explained: ''He was like, 'You know what, I just obviously didn't put out how I felt across to you properly'. And it was one of those situations.

''He never really told me that I think, but regardless we're still friends and I still have a lot of respect for him.''

Meanwhile, Rita is currently in a relationship with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris and is looking forward to going on holiday with him after she's wrapped up 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

She said previously: ''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.''
