Rita Ora finally clears up speculation that she was once in a throuple situation with Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson.

Rumors first began swirling in May 2021 after paparazzi photos caught Ora and the Thor: Love and Thunder The director, whom she married in August 2022, appeared to cuddle with Thompson on a Sunday morning after a late night party at Waititi’s home on a Sydney balcony. The trio appeared to be quite pals and intertwined at the time — leading people to speculate the couple had opened up on their relationship with Thompson, who previously admitted she’s attracted to both men and women.

However, as Ora tells now British GQ, these photos were nothing more than the result of friends blowing off some steam and having a good time. The 32-year-old says the reason she hasn’t addressed the rumors until now is because they were just too absurd to comment on.

“I just chose not to acknowledge that because it’s ridiculous. I think when some things are so absurd and it’s hard to make sense of them, you just have to ignore them. I’ve taken this approach to a lot of things because you don’t want to use energy on something that doesn’t exist. It’s like trying to explain something that didn’t happen means penetrating into nothingness.

Have you ever been in a situation where you drank a lot and everyone is your best friend? And then the next day you’re like, ‘I’ve been talking to this person in the smoking area for four hours and I have no idea who they are?’ Literally – that [photo] was just a bunch of friends having a good time. she [Taika and Tessa] had a crazy schedule and everyone was letting go. I love that. To each their own.”

But if the rumors are any good, Ora says her LGBTQIA+ fans gave her their full support and thanked her for normalizing same-sex relationships — whether or not the photos showed exactly what was going on . “That made me really happy,” she added. “You don’t know who it touches.” Wording!

For his part, Waititi previously addressed the paparazzi snaps in an interview with the in June 2021 Sydney Morning Herald. “I think everything goes by pretty quickly in the world of the internet,” the 47-year-old said at the time. “And besides, is it such a big deal? No not true. I did nothing wrong. It’s good.”

Case closed, we suspect!
