From surprise weddings to couples you didn’t know were dating, it’s been a wild week in celebrity couples news, and it seems like we could be adding Taika Waititi and Rita Ora to the list. On May 16, the duo were seen grabbing breakfast together in Sydney, Australia, where Rita is in town to film The Voice Australia and Taika was most recently filming Thor: Love and Thunder. They were spotted laughing and holding hands across the table before the 45-year-old director planted a kiss on the 30-year-old singer’s hand. Taika was later seen with his arm around Rita as they went for a walk around town.
The couple first sparked romance rumors after Rita posted a pic of the pair in a gallery on Instagram alongside the caption, “Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love.” In the photo, the two appear to be in an intimate embrace while wearing matching Gucci cardigans. On April 30, they further fueled rumors by attending the Sydney Opera House premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under together. Rita has been romantically linked to filmmaker Romain Gavras, actor Andrew Garfield, and Rob Kardashian, while Taika and wife Chelsea Winstanley split in 2018 after seven years of marriage.
