Television personality Rob Kardashian has stepped forward to clear the air on recent reports and speculation which have romantically tied him to Grammy-winning singer Rihanna and Roc Nation's Rita Ora.
Kardashian set the record straight this week in an interview with entertainment celebrity Ryan Seacrest.
"It was just me and a bunch of girls [at the go-kart place] and I was trying to go at my own pace, I really couldn't do much. It's because Rihanna's a friend, and she is friends with my friend Capricorn, and it was her birthday, it was Cap's birthday. We did a little birthday thing. We all went out to celebrate our friend's birthday. It was fun. It was a good night. ... Rita is in the U.K. I'm just a fan. That's all. I'm a big fan. She does have tattoos."

Rumors of a steamy Rihanna-Robert hook-up heated up the Internet last weekend.
Rihanna may view Chris Brown as the love of her life, but the singer considered Rob Kardashian the date of her Saturday this weekend, as photographic evidence points to the pair spending a whole lot of time together. TMZ has posted pics of Kardashian and Rihanna go-karting and then partying last night at Playhouse in Hollywood. (The Hollywood Gossip)
Speculation of Kardashian and Ora's relationship has remained in the air over the past few months.
Although Kardashian and Ora's relationship has never been confirmed, the pair has made it obvious that they were an item. A photo of the duo flaunting fake tattoos of each other's name on their hands fueled the dating rumors even more. "Rob's family make their lives public," Ora told Glamour last month. "Me? I'm very private. He's a great friend. But the only relationship I'm having now is with the tour bus." (Fashion N Style)
Last month, the Roc Nation princess addressed her connection to Rob.
Rita met Rob Kardashian through his sisters at a Watch the Throne show in the States. Although he's tweeted about how much he loves her, Rita's taking it slow. Asked if a long-distance relationship is hard, she replies, "I mean, it's not really a relationship. It's not that intense. He's a cool guy. We're close. We're good friends. I got his back and he's got mine. To me, it doesn't matter who you are or where you're from--if you're a good person and you got my back, I got yours. It's that easy for me." (Complex)
