Rita Ora has opened up on her past relationship with Bruno Mars.
The rising star revealed all to German magazine Bravo, stating that the pair met back in 2009 when both acts were somewhat more unknown than they are now.
Ora confirmed that they split last year but said that it was “love at first sight” and proclaimed that the couple were “so happy” together. She said:
“It was love at first sight, such a great experience. We met in 2009. I was 18 and starting out at Roc Nation. Bruno was unknown back then too. He was a struggling songwriter hired to write songs for me. I thought, ‘Wow, that’s just the world’s greatest guy!’.”
The ‘Hot Right Now’ singer continued: “Our time together was wonderful. But once we got famous, work got in the way. We ended it last year. But we remained close. And when we were together we were so happy.”
