The 'Party And BS (How We Do)' star has been defended by the UK rapper this week.

Professor Green has defended Rita Ora over a torrent of online messages directed at the singer following her split from former boyfriend Rob Kardashian.

The 'Never Be A Right Time' singer said the abuse being posted about Rita in the wake of several messages tweeted by the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was "lame", and urged people to "drop the Rita hate".

"Girls need to drop the Rita Hate," Professor Green tweeted last night (3rd December). "One tweet from an ex she left and you're gassing? Begging for an excuse if you ask me. Lame.

"That's something I never expected… Rob K. 'fans' tweeting me," the UK rapper later added. 'Alright then… Back to my evening."
