Singer Rita Ora has spoken out for the first time about her “secret” marriage to Taika Waititi. It turns out they tied the knot last year in a private ceremony.
The news comes just days after the singer addressed those viral photos of her, Taika Waititi, and Tessa Thompson…
In early 2021, photos of the 3 celebs getting pretty close with each other blew up online, and this ultimately sparked a lot of speculation about them forming a throuple.
Fans have been discussing this rumour ever since, coming up with their own theories behind the photos.
As fans will already be aware, Ora and Taika Waititi met way back in 2018, and the two of them have been openly together since April 2021, when she posted a picture of herself alongside her beau on Instagram with the caption: “Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love.”
They were said to have tied the knot back in August, and Waititi was spotted wearing what appeared to be a wedding ring last year in a snap posted to Instagram by Ora’s sister, Elena.
Speaking out about how she knew Waititi was the right guy for her, Ora has previously said: “When I didn’t feel a change, like my life just became better.
“We were really good friends for 6 years, and I went to Australia and we both had separate jobs, and we didn’t really know that many people out there.
“It was nice to see a familiar face and our universes just collided. That was it.”
Around this same time, pictures of the couple with Tessa Thompson began to flood the internet, showing the three allegedly locking lips with one another.
But Rita Ora finally addressed the viral photos, putting the speculation to bed once and for all.
She told GQ Hype: “I just chose to not acknowledge that because it’s ridiculous. I think when some things are so absurd, and it’s hard to fathom any sense of it, you just have to ignore it.
“I’ve taken that approach for a lot of things, because you don’t want to put energy towards something that’s nonexistent. It’s like trying to explain something that didn’t happen means you’re feeding into nothing.”
She went on to say the photos that were snapped were just of “a bunch of friends having a good time.”
Now Ora has revealed that she did in fact marry Taika Waititi last year in a “private” ceremony.
“Yes [I am married],” she said during and interview with Heart Breakfast on Friday: “I am officially off the market people. I chose to keep it more private and keep it to myself more but with my new video I am playing on what could have been. When the rumours came out is she, isn’t she? I wanted to play on it. I wanted to do a wedding that didn’t go to plan… that’s not to say that is actually what happened.”
Discussing the wedding, she added: “It was perfect. It was exactly, exactly how I wanted. It was nice and perfect. It is nice to keep some things just to myself sometimes it was nice and sweet… Sorry it’s not that interesting. One day I will throw a big party.”
Revealing why she chose to open up about her wedding, she explained: “I knew putting music out that was inspired by where I am at [in my life] – I knew the questions were going to come. I just thought I may as well put it in my music so this is the first time where the music does all the talking. It explains my love story which is on the album.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
