Rita Ora breaks her silence and comments on an alleged threesome photo with husband Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson

January 24, 2023

Rita Ora has finally broken her silence and spoken out about the couple rumors surrounding her, her husband Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson. Since the picture of the three of them having fun together appeared on the internet, there have been many questions about their relationship.

In an interview with Britain’s GQ, Ora opened up about the controversial snap, admitting that she chose not to speak out because she believed the news would just fade eventually. So were the rumors true?

The 32-year-old found the claims absurd and hard to make sense of, so she chose to ignore them. She took this approach to a lot of things because she didn’t want to put energy into something that didn’t exist.

The Poison hitmaker explained that addressing something that doesn’t exist felt like she was going nowhere. She then revealed that the moment captured in the picture was a binge drinking on a Sydney balcony.

She called it a drunken night where everyone became best friends. She even compared it to a moment she recalled spending hours talking to someone in the smoking area the next day, who she had no idea who it was.

In the truest sense of the word – that [Foto] was just a bunch of friends having a good time, Ora said. At the time, she added that Waititi and Thompson had a crazy schedule so everyone could let loose for themselves, which the singer-songwriter also loved.

But despite the talks, the For You singer found solace from her LGBTQIA+ supporters, who praised her for normalizing same-sex epidurals. While they weren’t sure if the photo was real, they were thrilled that something like this was publicly normalized.

Alternatively, Waititi also responded to the discussions about her alleged couple photo. He said via BuzzFeedthat everything can disappear very quickly in the world of the internet.

He also asked if what they were doing in the snap was a big deal. I did nothing wrong. It’s okay, he said.

Meanwhile, a source confirmed opposite Peopleannounced that Waititi and Ora tied the knot in a very small ceremony in August 2022, following rumors and reports that they were already married. In some snaps on social media, the director was seen wearing what appears to be a wedding ring.

The couple went public with their relationship after being first linked in April 2021. At the time, the Your Song singer posted a photo together of them hugging.

In her caption, she called it good times, memories, random things on her phone and the one she loves. Waititi and Ora then made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Los Angeles premiere of The Suicide Squad.
