Rita Ora has already said that she would never date Zayn Malik, but does he feel the same way? The two were recently spotted grabbing dinner together in LA, and HollywoodLife.com has now EXCLUSIVELY learned that Zayn is looking for a lot more than just friendship!
Is there a chance that Rita Ora, 24, and Zayn Malik, 22, may happen after all? Despite the fact that the “Body On Me” singer just recently revealed they’re not dating, the two were spotted on a dinner date in LA on Sept. 9. While she may not be interested, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Zayn finds Rita “super sexy,” and has all intentions of pursuing her romantically.
“Zayn would date Rita in a heartbeat,” a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s always had a crush on her and thinks she’s super sexy. He would also love to collaborate with her on a song. He likes that Rita is bold and speaks her mind. They have the same management team, but that won’t stop Zayn from pursuing her romantically.”
Unfortunately for Zayn, Rita doesn’t same to feel the same way about him…for right now anyways. The 24-year-old gave an interview on Sept. 6, in which she discussed the possibility of a relationship with Zayn, and things got a little awkward. While playing a game with Capital FM, Rita got totally silent when her fellow Brit’s name was mentioned, and even when she found the words to say, it was hard for her to organize her thoughts!
“Zayn, he’s gorgeous, but I just…” she began, before going quiet again. “That can’t happen. We’re on the same management team — too close to home for that. But, no, he’s great.” We understand where she’s coming from — mixing business with pleasure is never a good idea — but wouldn’t they make a totally cute couple?!
Interestingly enough, Zayn has also recently been linked to Indian model Neelam Gill, 20, who has reportedly been flying to Los Angeles to spend time with him while he continues to work on his solo album. The two met after running into each other at a recording studio in London, where Zayn was working on his solo music with Naughty Boy, and Neelam was hanging out with her friends Krept & Konan, who were also doing some recording at the time. Zayn was said to be “smitten” with her, according to a source who spoke to DailyMail. If we were Rita we would act fast, because this bachelor isn’t like to stay on the market for too long!
Well, HollywoodLifers, what do you think — would Rita and Zayn make a good couple? Do you think they’ll actually get together?
