The 'Hot Right Now' singer says her mum kept telling Jay-Z and Beyonce embarrassing baby stories about her.

Rita Ora has revealed that her mum and Jay-Z got on really well when they met up, but says she kept telling the 'Empire State Of Mind' rapper embarrassing stories about her childhood.

The 'R.I.P.' singer launched her debut album 'ORA' this week, after being signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label back in 2009, and recalls the first time her mum got to meet Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce.

"My mum is so embarrassing around Jay-Z and Beyonce!" Rita revealed to The Mirror this week. "She starts talking about when I was a baby and my nappy rashes!

"When they first met, mum mum said to Jay, 'Are you the one who sang you've got 99 problems and a b***h ain't one?'," Rita recalled. "He said, 'Yeah', and my mum goes, 'You've got the baddest b***h and points at Beyonce.

"After that it was, 'See ya later Rita' and it was all about my mum and Jay!" Rita added.

The 21 year-old singer-songwriter has previously described 'Love On Top' star Beyonce as a "superwoman" for managing to balance her career and family life so well.

Rita launched her brand new album on Monday (27th August) and performing song of her biggest hits at a G-A-Y concert in London on Saturday (25th August), which was also attended by One Direction star Harry Styles.
