Rita Ora is allegedly single again after breaking up with Ricky Hilfiger.

The 24-year-old singer began dating Ricky Hilfiger, son of designer Tommy Hilfiger, a year ago following her public split from Calvin Harris. She and Ricky were thought to have briefly went their separate ways at the end of last year before getting back together shortly after.

However, MailOnline reports the couple mutually ended things for good a few weeks ago and Rita is now leaning on close friends for support

It's thought distance affected things, as well as their busy lifestyles. Rita has recently become a judge on UK The X Factor, meaning she has little spare time on her hands.

"Rita and Ricky have split for good this time. It is amicable between the two and they both made the decision to call it a day due to their work schedules," a source told the publication.

"They've been on and off for a while. He's based in LA and she's based in London. Now that she's doing the X Factor and has her new album here, she will be here for the rest of the year. But he has commitments to his music career and fashion line overseas, too."

A second source backed this up, adding that the pair found it "difficult" to keep their relationship going. But they are apparently insistent on remaining good friends after their amicable breakup.

Rita looked calm and collected as she performed at the Radio City Summer Live concert in Liverpool, UK, last night following the news breaking.

The star recently opened up to the Kyle & Jackie O radio show on KIIS 106.5 about her relationships with her exs, which also include Rob Kardashian. The blonde beauty admitted it's very rare she stays friends with them as there's always the reminder of what happened between them.
