Rihanna Loses Out On Movie Role To Rita Ora

Posted: Updated:

Rihanna will be fuming when she discovers that Rita Ora has snagged a movie role that had been earmarked for her.

RiRi, who has just scored her third consecutive UK No.1 album with her latest release 'Unapologetic', was tipped for a villainous role in upcoming blockbuster 'The Fast And The Furious 6', but her busy schedule had movie bosses looking elsewhere.

And with her blonde bombshell looks and fiery personality, Rita fit the bill and will be cosying up to Vin Diesel and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson instead (sorry RiRi).

A source tells The Sun: "Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in 'Battleship'. But schedules didn't work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude."

The Bajan beauty has also become increasingly irritated at her pop star rival's copycat look, even using umbrellas as props, but this new move will surely push her over the edge.

The source adds: "At first Rihanna thought Rita's 'copycat' act was sweet. But she kicked off after seeing the red dress Rita wore to the VMAs. The umbrella prop annoyed her too."
