Rita Ora: 'There's no bad blood with Jay Z or Beyonce'

  Rita Ora: 'There's no bad blood with Jay Z or Beyonce' Rita Ora insists there's "no bad blood" between her and Jay Z or his wife Beyonce following her lawsuit against his record label Roc Nation. The 26-year-old signed on to the rap mogul's imprint in 2008, but things turned sour when she sued them for neglecting her career and company executives sued her for breaking her recording contract and failing to deliver the albums she was meant to. They reached an out of court settlement with them in June (16). She has since signed with Atlantic Records, but said in a new interview that the developments in her career have not led to any friction with her former mentor. "I mean, the truth is, it was a respectful separation. It is a very respectful separation and there is no bad blood whatsoever, 150 per cent," she told Britain's The Sun newspaper. Rita also hit headlines with her relationship with Jay's spouse Beyonce, after fans speculated she was the "Becky" the singer referred to in her song Sorry, which hinted at allegations of her husband's alleged infidelity. However, the Hot Right Now star, who strenuously denied any claims of an affair with Jay, insists she and Beyonce are also still on good terms. "I’d hug Beyonce if we bumped into each other. There is always just smiles and love, I mean, from every direction, honestly," she said. Rita is now gearing up to release her first offerings with Atlantic, with single Your Song being her comeback track.

The robbery drove the Poison singer to seek therapy as she attempted to deal with the invasion of privacy, which could have been so much worse, and now in an exclusive chat with The Sun's Bizarre Life podcast, Rita reveals she's still haunted by the fact she had an unwelcome visitor in her home.

"It still affects me, even today, going to sleep and things like that because just knowing that there was a stranger in your home is never really a nice feeling," she says.

The 26-year-old singer is gearing up to release her second record five years after her debut Ora, which boasted singles How We Do (Party), R.I.P. and Shine Ya Light. During the period in between, Rita’s personal life made plenty of headlines, including relationships with Rob Kardashian, DJ Calvin Harris and a rumoured fling with rapper A$AP Rocky, but the star hopes the focus will return to her musical skills now she has released fresh material, such as new single Your Song. “With this album, I improved as a songwriter and I was able to explore myself. It's not just about, ‘Oh, who is Rita dating?’ anymore,” she told #legend magazine. Rita had time to explore other areas while working to get her music back on track after a dispute with her former label Roc Nation and she dipped her toes into acting with a role in the Fifty Shades franchise and Jake Gyllenhaal movie Southpaw. She also took on judging roles on TV Show The X Factor, The Voice U.K. and America’s Next Top Model,and enjoyed some down time with her loved ones. “I spent time with my family. I went home, went back to scratch and I ate what I wanted. I just enjoyed myself,” she added. However, she has no plans to quit acting now she’s returned to her pop career and will next be seen in upcoming movie Wonderwell opposite the late actress Carrie Fisher. Rita revealed she spent time with the Star Wars legend last December (16) just hours before Carrie boarded the flight and suffered a heart attack which led to her death days later. “I was with her the day before she got on that flight and it's just crazy,” the singer recalled. “She drank a lot of Coca-Cola and we were, like, loving life on Coca-Cola. We were laughing, the scene was amazing and she helped me a lot.

Rita Ora still suffering sleepless nights after 2015 break - in The singer has discovered that talking about the ordeal helps.

"It was harder for my sister also because she had the actual face-to-face encounter with the robber, so it was difficult to get over that and we did the court cases and things..., which was really scary.

"It was awful and you're in a home that you've made yourself that you now know isn't safe, so I've definitely upped my security about 200 per cent."

The burglar, Charaf Elmouudden, was jailed for five years in June (16), and Rita admits talking about the break-in lately has been a big help.

"It’s helped me actually talking about it to be honest, to kind of like get the scariness away from it," she adds.
