Rita Ora On Rob Kardashian Split: "It Didn't Work"

4 December 2012, 14:53

The 'R.I.P.' singer admits the two were "close for a while" but were never in a relationship.

Rita Ora has denied she was ever in a relationship with reality star Rob Kardashian, in the wake of a stream of claims about their short-lived romance.

The 'Shine Ya Light' singer says the two were "close for a while" but insists it didn't work because of her hectic work schedule promoting debut album 'ORA'.

"I'm not going out with Rob," Rita confirms in the January issue of Glamour magazine. "We were close for a while, but it didn't work because I was never there.

"I was like a ghost," Rita explained. "I used to get so frustrated with myself and then wonder why I was angry, so I decided it was best to keep it friendly - especially at the moment when there's so much going on."

The 'Party & BS (How We Do)' singer went on to explain that she has never been in love, and finds it hard to let her guard down in romance.

"Im 22 years there's been nothing," Rita added. "I have had young fascinations but never love. I think it's my only weakness. 

"I'm scared of letting my guard down and if I feel in love with someone now, he'd have to try ten times harder to break it down."

The reality star has since been criticised by Professor Green after posting a string of Twitter messages about the split.
