Rita rebounds with Ricky! Rita Ora is dating Richard Hilfiger, the son of legendary American designer Tommy Hilfiger.
Page Six, which first revealed the news, reported that the two have known each other for several years. A source confirmed that they only started dating recently after the singer’s split from mega-DJ Calvin Harris. In the last month, Ora, 23, and Hilfiger have been spotted out together on multiple occasions.
Like the “How We Do” songstress, Hilfiger, 22, is in the music biz: He’s an L.A.-based rapper, who goes by the stage name “Ricky Hil.” According to Page Six, he and Ora grew close after writing music together.
Unlike his sisters Ally,Elizabeth,Kathleen, and half-brother Sebastian, Richard also has a criminal record. Back in August 2010, at age 20, he was arrested and charged with marijuana possession.
While he’s made no mention of his new lady, Richard has been more than vocal on his Twitter about, erm, hating limousines. “Limos were cool in the 90s,” he tweeted last Friday, Aug. 1. “Limos aren’t cool. No limos. F— limos.”
His most recent tweet from Tuesday, Aug. 5, was more positive, as it alluded to his sex life. “P—- so good if u throw it up in the air it will turn into sunshine,” Hilfiger wrote.
Ora’s briefly single relationship status, meanwhile, was revealed in early June by her ex-boyfriend, “Summer” hitmaker Harris. “To address speculation—myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago,” the Scottish DJ, 30, tweeted. “She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best.”
One week later, Ora tweeted: “I don’t usually address speculation but I’ve had an incredible time w Calvin, & i will treasure the memories.”
The stunning Brit also previously dated Rob Kardashian.
