Roc Nation’s Rita Ora is not losing any sleep over past rumors about having a romantic relationship with boss Jay Z and immediately shut down the gossip this week.
Appearing on New York radio station Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” Ora put an end to the dating chatter once and for all.
“Don’t you dare disrespect Beyonce like that ever again in your entire life. You should know better than that,” Ora said. “That’s just straight up disrespect. You can’t even go there.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Last year, Ora discussed what she had learned from Jay since joining the team.
“Ever since being plucked from a night club in London in 2009 by Roc Nation, Rita Ora has been in the studio crafting her untitled debut album, which has been a learning experience in itself. “When I signed to Roc Nation, I was 18. At 18, I was basically singing anything [and] talking about something that I didn’t really know. When we recorded a few songs… the good thing about having a musician who is also your boss, is [having him] say, ‘Are you happy with it?’ Rita Ora said of Jay-Z and recording,”I was like, ‘I don’t know.'” (Billboard)
She also credited Hovi for helping her slow down and letting creativity develop naturally.
“He taught me about patience and they [Roc Nation] taught me how to find myself. i came back one day, and I swear, and I was like, ‘You know what? We need to do something else. And we flipped it.” Three years later, her full-length opus, featuring Ester Dean, The-Dream, Tinie Tempah, Drake and more, “is nearly done,” and Rita Ora is charming the media all the while marking her name in red on the Billboard charts.

Earlier this year, the UK singer reportedly teamed up with sneaker giant Adidas.
Another celebrity has joined ranks with adidas, this time it’s British singer and style icon Rita Ora. She posted the announcement on her Instagram account. The image contained the following caption: “We’re coming for you world!! [email protected] family HELLO! #designerlife#icantwait #excited #RitaBotsUniform.” There’s no word what the collection will contain, but this will be a switch-up from Ora’s days with Superga.
