“I Never Thought It Was A Relationship” Rita Ora Says She Didn’t Take Rob Kardashian Romance As Serious As Him

March 6, 2013  |  

Remember a few months back when we told you about Rob Kardashian going bananas on Twitter about Rita Ora after their split as a romantic item? The rant was pretty disrespectful whether the claims he put out there about her were true or not (since adults shouldn’t expose people’s sexual lives on social media…or at least they shouldn’t), and included him saying she slept around on him with 20 guys, and ended it with such statements as, “How can a woman who is so busy trying to start her own career have time to be with so many dudes all while in a relationship?!”

Ora was pretty quiet about all the online mess that Kardashian started, though prior to his rant she was open about the fact that because she was so busy, she couldn’t be fully present for him  or fully in love with him. But in an interview with the Australian magazine Sunday Style, homegirl didn’t hold back her disappointment in his behavior and thought she’d backtrack on the whole “boyfriend” and “relationship” talk thrown out there:
“I never actually thought it was a relationship in all honesty. I never mentally defined it as boyfriend/girlfriend. When I split up with him, I said, ‘It’s because I’m never there, I don’t know how to do it.’ That’s all I said, then … the rest happened. He obviously felt that creating myths was the way forward.”
She also of course said his form of therapy, whining to the public, is not how she gets down:
“When you are involved with someone for a while and they decide to express their feelings to the public, well, that’s not my personal way of therapy but I guess everyone takes split-ups differently. You should have to sit an exam before you go on Twitter. To see if you’re mentally stable.”
Ouch. Sounds like she was down for the idea of a relationship, but never really was ready for it. As she says, she didn’t know how to be there the way a relationship calls for people to be present physically and mentally. Could she have led your boy Rob on? Maybe, but he was still wrong for putting her on front street via Twitter. Talk about TMI. But despite the fact that she never really felt that Rob was her boyfriend, she wants a real live boyfriend now, preferably one in the industry. “It’s a terrible feeling, being lonely … I’m still a girl. I’d love a boyfriend. But it’s hard when they’re not in the industry. I wouldn’t care what he did as long as he made me laugh. I love laughing.” Here’s to hoping she’ll be mentally ready next go ’round…

    “Could she have led your boy Rob on? Maybe, but he was still wrong for putting her on front street via Twitter”

    C’mon now, if the genders were switched, and it was a woman putting the guy on blast on twitter after being led on, would you be saying “she was wrong for putting him on front street”? Highly doubt it.

  • Charla

    Umm she just confirmed what Rob said, she sleeps around. You’re with someone for months and months but you’re not bf/gf? Rob was right.

  • Nyame Adom

    Who is she? Really I remember reading the first article… Like who is she. Guess I’d better google it now. MN this doesn’t seem newsworthy in any case.

    I beg to differ. The moment that I saw on KUWTK tell me that they were in a relationship and Rita’s people wanted it to seem like she was single because that image sells better (or whatever). I believe it was a real relationship or else she wouldn’t have Rob’s name on her knuckles.

    Rob is just a young guy trying to fit in with his famous family, but says/does things that make him look immature. He feels left out and a little part of me feels sorry for him.

    I believe her..Im sorry I can tell from Body language when a person AINT FEELIN IT…or aint with you on all that lovey ish. Usually its the chick gushing and posting Love sonnets and it was ALWAYS ROB…HE WOULD GO ON AND ON!!! And Rita barely would take pics with him and when she did would be like “this me and Rob” She was even denying the relationship for the LONGEST! lmaoooo

    Chile please…I been said this. He was clearly more invested in a future and a relationship than she was. Stevie Wonders could have seen that. Kardashians all try and hook themselves with the hottest of the hot…but this one came back to bite them in the big a..

      Maybe her body language was off because she felt guilty for was around with 20-something other guys…

      And the reason (I believe) Rob seemed to be more emotional about the break-up was because he grew up in a household full of girls, where it was okay to cry and show your feelings…

  • Monica

    Oh Please!!! Who is she fooling?! Her actions were so trifling that she has no choice but to say that. Rob is better off. What goes around comes around.

  • CoCo Lee
