She was the target of a venomous attack on Tuesday, as EuroMillions winner Jane Park branded her a ‘w***e’ for posing with Conor McGregeor at the Fashion Awards.
But Rita Ora fanned away the flames of controversy later that evening, when she quietly became ‘Instagram official’ with musician Andrew Watt, who has been rumoured to be her boyfriend for more than a year.
The 27-year-old singer took to the photo-sharing app to upload a black-and-white snapshot of herself posing with a hand on the rocker’s arm at Monday night’s glitzy event London, alongside the caption: ‘Last night,’ flanked by a pair of love hearts.
Despite the pair having been spotted enjoying a romantic getaway to Rome in October of last year, Rita has stayed mum about their relationship and had notably kept him away from her social media accounts until Tuesday night.
And a source tells MailOnline that it is all a part of her efforts to keep her romance under wraps, explaining: ‘Rita has kept her relationship with him very private and out of the spotlight… This is the first time she has posted anything about him.’
Her low-key Instagram revelation came hours after Jane Park – who found fame after scooping £1million on a EuroMillions lucky dip ticket – hit out after Rita was seen cosying up to the UFC-fighter-turned-boxer in a snap she captioned ‘date night’.
