‘R.I.P.’ to Rita Ora and Ricky Hilfiger. After dating for a year, the ‘How We Do’ singer and son of Tommy Hilfiger have ended their relationship. How sad! The two called it quits in an allegedly ‘mutual’ break-up.
Alas! The love between Rita Ora, 24, and Ricky Hilfiger, 25, was not meant to be. Despite being an item for over a year, the young lovers decided it was now time to consciously uncouple. Rita and Ricky have reportedly split up and have gone their separate ways.
Rita and Ricky’s break-up is reportedly a “mutual decision,” sources told E! News. Perhaps after twelve months, the relationship just ran its course? Sad. Ricky and Rita started dating in the summer of 2014, months after Rita broke up with then-boyfriend, DJ Calvin Harris.
Since Rita’s break with Calvin, she and Ricky seemed to make a cute couple. She even sparked speculation they were getting serious by wearing a silver band on her left ring finger on July 2. The “Black Widow” singer was reportedly thinking about marriage, and sources told The Sun that Rita thought Ricky was the one. Clearly, he wasn’t.
Well, on the bright side, Rita now has more time to focus on her work. She performed at the Radio City Summer Live 2015 in Liverpool on July 18, reports E!. She also is returning as a judge on Season 12 the U.K. version of The X Factor. While we’re sad to see any romance come to an end, we wish Rita and Ricky the best in their future love adventures.
It’s a bummer to see Rita and Ricky break up, especially after she said she hates being alone! While speaking with Marie Claire for their July issue, the singer opened up about her dating habits. “I’m afraid of being alone,” she said. “I’m not afraid to admit that, you know. I’m not embarrassed to admit that. I just hope it’s not a never-ending cycle.” Rita then went into further detail about her dating life, her rebellious nature and she even dished on her ex!
Are you sad that Rita and Ricky split up, HollywoodLifers? Who do you think Rita should date next?
