Several months after a source confirmed that Rita Ora and Taika Waititi had tied the knot months ago, Ora is now going public with the details of her wedding to Waititi.
In a surprise announcement, she confirmed that she and her husband, Taika Waititi, have wed, months after reports first emerged that they were engaged.
In A Statement, Rita Ora Confirmed That She And Taika Waititi Have Been Married
The singer Rita Ora has confirmed that she is now married to the director Taika Waititi after appearing in her latest music video wearing a YSL dress featuring an attached wedding veil from the 1980s. As part of the release of her latest single, ‘You Only Love Me,’ the 32-year-old singer released the music video on Friday for the song. In the video, Ora acts as a bride getting ready for her big day, conveying that the video has a strong wedding theme.
It begins with several celebrities appearing on a vintage TV and giving their congratulations to the bride as they are shown in the video. “I just had the craziest dream that you were getting married, and I wasn’t there,” joked Kristen Stewart as she talked about her dream.
In an interview with Heart Radio Breakfast earlier on Friday morning, just before she released the video, Ora confirmed the marriage as part of her promotion for the song’s release. “Yes [I am married]. I am officially off the market, people. I chose to keep it more private and to myself, but with my new video, I am playing on what could have been.” She spoke.
In describing the nuptials, she told them as “sweet and nice” but did not share too many details about them. However, instead of talking about how she was unsure whether she would take her husband’s name, she expressed her uncertainty about keeping her own name.
She said it was perfect. The way Ora described her special day was exactly how she imagined it would be, exactly how she had envisioned it. Additionally, she said that she and Waititi planned to throw a big party to celebrate the wedding and the union at some point in the future.
“You Only Love Me,” the lead single from Rita Ora’s up-and-coming third album, will be released in May this year. However, it has yet to be announced what the name of Ora’s upcoming album will be or when it will be removed. Nevertheless, in the same interview, she explains that “my music does all the talking.”
Rita Ora And Taika Waititi Relationship
The rumored romance between Rita and Taika became official in August 2021, about three months after their initial sparks of dating rumors began to spread. Ora and Thor director Waititi were first linked as a couple in May 2021, when they were photographed together in Sydney, Australia, which led many to speculate they were dating.
Soon after, a picture of them kissing on a balcony was also captured. It was reported in June 2022 that the couple had become engaged, and plans were underway to start a family. However, after just a few weeks, rumors began to circulate that the pair had tied the knot secretly during the summer months after they tied it secretly.
