Rita Ora says there was “a reason” she broke up with Calvin Harris, adding that things went a bit “weird” after they worked together.

The 24-year-old singer previously dated Calvin Harris and Rob Kardashian and is currently in a relationship with Ricky Hilfiger.

But when it comes to her personal life, Rita admits she thinks there is nothing worse than being single.

"I'm afraid of being alone… I'm not afraid to admit that, you know," she told Marie Claire magazine. "I just hope it's not a never-ending cycle. Sometimes love just makes you feel crazy. And that feeling that we have as girls, just to have that feeling, even for five seconds, it's like crack. I mean, don't compare it to that, but you know what I mean. It's like comfort eating."

Rita split from Calvin last year, and the Scottish producer is now dating Taylor Swift. In the interview Rita admitted it was after she worked with her former beau on hit track I Will Never Let You Down that things started to get “a bit weird”.

“I don't know if it was because business was mixed with personal or what,” she said. “There was a reason why I split up with him. And there was a reason why I'm at this point in my life where I feel like I have so much musical freedom, and I don’t have to explain myself to anybody.

“It was more of a thing where I was in awe. I was at that point in my relationship where I felt he could do no wrong. I thought he had my back and that he’d never steer me wrong."
