Rita Ora, 30, has reportedly taken things to the next level with her Hollywood film director boyfriend Taika Waititi after she introduced him to her parents during a visit to London.
Smitten Rita Ora is said to be ‘totally serious’ about her boyfriend Taika Waititi and has introduced him to her parents.
The How We Do singer cosied up to New Zealand native Taika in a loved-up display at the MTV EMA red carpet in Budapest, Hungary at the weekend.
The pair are now back in London, and according to The Sun, the singer has introduced Taika to her family.
Sources also say that the couple are “really serious” after Rita made their relationship Instagram official when she posted a selection of snaps of the two of them at the award ceremony.
One of the snaps showed Rita laughing as Taika playfully hid behind her dress. Another showed the pair with Ed Sheeran in a pretend argument.
Director and actor Taika and Rita are saying in London for a few weeks while she has her new mansion renovated.
Rita, 30, and Taika, 46 have been in a relationship since March and kept it low key, however pals now say “they’re really into each other”.
A source declared: “It’s become increasingly obvious for her that LA is going to be where she lives for the foreseeable.
“It feels a bit like there are some bad memories in London and she’s happy to start afresh in LA where there are loads of new opportunities.
“After her birthday bash last year, Rita left the UK and hasn’t been back since.”
The couple appeared to have colour co ordinated as they stepped out onto the red carpet at the annual music event.
The gorgeous singer dazzled in a dress with feather features and her hair pulled effortlessly back into a messy bun.
She rocked a bright purple eye-shadow look which perfectly complimented her pink lipstick.
The Hollywood director kept it simple with a black corduroy suit over a black shirt as he proudly stood beside the singer.
Taika split from his wife of six years, Chelsea Winstanley, in 2018 after the couple had two daughters together.
The Kiwi couple tied the knot in 2012 after meeting when Chelsea interviewed Taika for a TV documentary series on Maori artists.
After the split, she told the New Zealand Herald: “I’m just sick of women portrayed as living in the shadow of their partners, that’s all.
“I made one film with him, I was a film-maker before I met him and I continue to do my own stuff.”
Rita had previously been dating French-Greek filmmaker Romain Garvais – with the couple confirming they had split back in March this year.
