Ooh, la la! On Sunday, Dec. 23, Rita Ora and Spiderman actor Andrew Garfield were spotted linking arms down the streets of London. Now don’t get us wrong, these dashing Brits would make a gorgeous couple. However, we’re a bit confused.
After all, it was only a few weeks back that the 28-year-old was spotted with her most recent ex-boyfriend, Andrew Watt, in West Hollywood. Hmmm, perhaps Rita is keeping her options open?
According to The Sun, however, the songstress only has eyes for Mr. Garfield. “Rita let slip to pals about her brewing romance about a month ago,” an insider revealed to the publication on Nov. 29. “But in recent days things have started to heat up and she says what they have is the real deal,” the insider continued. “It is still very early days but they like each other and are seeing what happens.”
The insider went on to explain that despite having “a real connection,” Andrew and Rita’s busy schedules make it “difficult” to foster a relationship. Well, that’s Hollywood for you. Even so, based on these new pictures, the celebrity pair definitely appears to be more than just friends.
We wonder what Andrew’s ex-girlfriend Emma Stone would have to say about this. Though they called it quits back in 2015, Emma and Andrew have continued to maintain a relationship and have consistently spoken kindly of one another in the press.
“I’m nothing but supportive and her biggest fan,” he gushed to an E! News reporter of his feelings on Emma during the premiere of his movie Breathe in October 2017. Beyond that, back in May, the former flames were photographed out to dinner in NYC.
“They were talking and sitting very close,” an onlooker told Page Six at the time. “They were laughing and smiling. They both seemed happy.” Sigh. We don’t know what to think! At the end of the day, a lot can change in the course of a few months and it’s entirely possible the Rita and Andrew have officially moved on… together.
