Rita Ora relaxed about Kardashian romance

Rita Ora says her romance with Rob Kardashian "isn't really" a relationship.

The up-and-coming singer has been linked to the reality TV star for the last few months, having been spotted with him on several occasions.

Although she admits they had a double date with Rob's sister Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Rita insists they aren't serious.

"I mean, it's not really a relationship. It's not that intense," she told Complex magazine. "He's a cool guy. We're close. We're good friends. I got his back and he's got mine. To me, it doesn't matter who you are or where you're from - if you're a good person and you got my back, I got yours. It's that easy for me."

Rita is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label and has been working on material for years.

She can vividly remember when she landed a record deal, admitting things didn't go exactly as she expected.

"I was thinking my whole world was going to be turned around. I thought I was gonna be on Oprah next week with a new single. Three years later I'm just starting to come out," she laughed.

Jay-Z stopped Rita from releasing music too soon as he was adamant it wasn't good enough. She's since scored a UK number one and her live performances have been a hit.

"I get nervous before shows and then I'm just like, OK let's go," she said. "It's like, you can't f**k it up now because everybody's watching you. It's more of a rush - like an adrenaline high."
