The singer has attempted to end speculation.

Rita Ora appears to have responded to the huge backlash involving Conor McGregor after she was pictured with UFC star at the Fashion Awards. 

The ‘Love Song’ singer was slammed by fans after pictures of the pair looking cosy at the Royal Albert Hall went viral.

Rita Ora first sparked drama when she tweeted two pictures with McGregor alongside the caption: “Date night”.

As McGregor is happily married, fans were quick to label the images as “disrespectful”. 

However Ora has now appeared to clarify that her actual date was rumoured boyfriend Andrew Watt. 

She posted another Instagram picture of herself with Watt alongside the caption “Last Night.”

The couple were spotted together in Rome last year but according to reports, she had been trying to keep their relationship quiet. 

“Rita has kept her relationship with him very private and out of the spotlight,” a source told Mail Online. “This is the first time she has posted anything about him”.

The source added: “Date night is a figure of speech, Rita also posted selfies with Donatella Versace as her real date and one with Jourdan Dunn as her date.”

Conor McGregor and his girlfriend of nine years, Dee Devlin, welcomed a baby boy in May 2017.
