Rita Ora Speaks Out Over Jay Z Rumours: 'It's Incredibly Disrespectful'

'It's incredibly rude when women get accused of something...'

Rita Ora has opened up about being at the centre of rumours suggesting she’d been having an affair with Jay Z, behind Beyoncé’s back.

Earlier this year, Rita made the headlines when it was suggested she was the subject of the Beyoncé song ‘Sorry’, in which the singer appears to hit out at her husband for sleeping with a mystery woman, dubbed “Becky with the good hair”.

The cause of the rumours that put Rita on the literal front page of one of the country’s leading tabloids? The fact that she had posted a photo on Snapchat, wearing a bra with lemons on it.

Rita has now addressed the “disrespectful” rumours that surrounded not just her but a string of other women at the time.

Opening up to Vanity Fair, the ‘Hot Right Now’ singer says, of her relationship with Jay Z: First and foremost, Jay Z is my inspiration and one of my idols - lyrically, musically, business-wise. I still look up to him and his wife every day. Beyoncé was one of my biggest idols growing up.”
