Rita Ora and X Factor UK winner James Arthur enjoyed a secret date at a strip club.
The Sun reports that the couple went to the Silks Gentlemen’s Lounge in Leeds, northern England where they stayed for four hours.
The pair then got into separate cabs but returned to the same hotel, the newspaper claims.
James and Rita, 22, met up after both performing gigs in the area and were “desperate” not to be spotted, a source told the publication.
“They entered the strip club via the back door and left separately to avoid being snapped together,” the source said.
“James made a big effort to spend time with her. He’s smitten.”
The Sun reports that their outing is the latest in a string of dates, with Rita joining James at an aftershow party for an X Factor show at the weekend.
James is then reported to have been photographed leaving the singer’s hotel the following morning.
Rita had a high profile romance and bad breakup with Rob Kardashian last year.
He claimed she had been unfaithful multiple times during their relationship, taking his wrath to Twitter and later deleting the posts.
Rita has moved on from the drama and claims that the tweets had no effect on her.
“No. Nooooo. To tell you the truth I don’t put energy toward things that don’t need light. You don’t need it,” she said.”
