Rita Ora slams Cara feud rumours

Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora

Rita Ora has slammed the "stupid" stories surrounding her friendship with model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne.

The pair were once inseparable, regularly hanging out together and calling each other 'wifey'.

However, their relationship was said to have become increasingly strained over the past few weeks, amid speculation that a number of factors have played a part.

Rita has now hit back at the claims on social networking site Twitter.

"I don't know what all these stupid stories are about but Im always going to have my best friend @Caradelevingne I love you! (sic)," she gushed.

Cara has not yet replied to the message.

Earlier this month, reports of a feud between the pair started when Cara, 20, allegedly made her 22-year-old pal feel uncomfortable at a DKNY fashion event.

The model-of-the-moment grabbed Rita's microphone mid-performance and performed sexy dance moves behind the singer.

“There’s a lot of hurt on both sides, but Rita’s been working towards her singing career and carefully crafting her image for four years and it was all in danger of being a joke after that shabby performance,” a source told British newspaper The Mirror at the time.

“Rita’s been advised to distance herself from the model.”

The friendship is also said to have come under strain after Rita embarked on a relationship with DJ Calvin Harris.

Rita and Cara both attended Glastonbury music festival two weeks ago and despite staying near each other, they partied separately the entire weekend.

The tension between the pair was said to have come to a head at the star-studded event.

"Cara was under the weather after a day of dancing and drinking, so was being helped back to her Winnebago by her sister Poppy when Rita walked past. Rita thought Cara had deliberately ignored her and started shouting, 'Sort yourself out, you’re a mess.' It was really feisty and nasty. Poppy was livid. There’s no chance of reconciliation any time soon," a source told the Daily Mail.

Recently Rita referred to designer Stella McCartney as “my new wife” on Twitter and has been spending time with Kate Moss, while Cara has been partying up a storm with Rihanna recently.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
