After Rita Ora addressed the rumours for the first time, it was determined that there was no truth to the speculation that she, her husband Taika Waititi, and Tessa Thompson were having an affair. The singer was talked to for an article that was featured in the most recent issue of Hype from British GQ, which came out on January 23. During the interview, she talked about those photos that went viral in May 2021 and showed the three of them kissing and hugging one another. 

The photos were taken by her boyfriend.
After her wedding to the director, which took place in August of 2022, Ora stated, "I just chose to not acknowledge that because it's ridiculous." Ora made this statement after the wedding. "I think that when certain things are so absurd that it is difficult to comprehend how they could possibly make any sense, the best course of action is to simply ignore those things. 

Because you don't want to waste your time or effort on something that doesn't exist, I've found that this is the best strategy for a lot of different situations. [Citation needed] When you try to provide an explanation for something that never took place, you might as well be adding fuel to a fire that already isn't there."

She described the occurrence by saying it was like being in a "situation where you've had a lot of drinks and everyone's your best friend." This was an analogy she used to explain the event. "To put it succinctly, this [photo] shows a gathering of close friends who are laughing and having a good time together. Despite the hectic schedule that Taika and Tessa had put together for everyone, it seemed like everyone was having a good time. That is absolutely wonderful. It's up to the individual to decide " she explained it.

Ora expressed that it made her "really happy" to unintentionally normalise different types of relationships, despite the fact that she did not want to add fuel to the "absurd" rumours that were circulating. Ora stated that she did not want to add fuel to the rumours that were circulating because she did not want to add fuel to the rumours that were circulating. 

" The encouraging news is that when I was on Twitter chatting with my fans, each and every one of my incredible LGBTQIA+ fanbases said something along the lines of "actually, whether this is true or not, I'm so inspired that this is being normalised publicly."... You are clueless about the person who is being affected by it."

The first time that Ora and Waititi were romantically linked was when they made their relationship public on Instagram in April 2021 and then went on to attend a premiere together at the same time. At that point in time, the two were not previously romantically linked. Waititi and Thompson, who had previously worked together on the films "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Thor: Ragnarok: The Sequel," were shown engaging in an affectionate embrace in photographs that were posted online one month later. 

Soon after, Waititi gave an interview to The Sydney Morning Herald in which he stated that he did not think the rumours were "that big of a deal" and that he did not believe they were true. He added: "The world of the internet is one in which, in my view, everything vanishes rather hastily, so don't get too attached to anything. On my end, there was no dishonesty whatsoever. It has turned out well."

Ora disclosed in another segment of the cover interview that she will be reclaiming her history and regaining control of her life in conjunction with the release of her upcoming third studio album. After gaining complete ownership of her masters and falling in love with Waititi, she was inspired to take this step forward in her career.
