One year after rumors swirled that Rita Ora was the "Becky" in Beyoncé's Lemonade album, the British beauty is being called a homewrecker again. This time, she is being accused of trying to steal Conor McGregor from his longtime girlfriend.
Rita, 27, shared a photo with the MMA fighter on her Instagram page, and captioned the too close for comfort snaps, "Date night." While she has since deleted the caption, her followers definitely remembered her flirty words. "What happened to date night? BECKY," one follower commented before another added, "Rob Kardashian was right about you… and so was Beyoncé! Oh so was many different rappers… you sleep your way to the top!"
Ouch. While we definitely don't think Rita had any bad intentions with the cheeky post (and Conor definitely looked like he didn't mind the attention), it is very well known that Conor is in a committed relationship with his girlfriend and mother of his son, Dee Devlin. “My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially nothing,” the 29-year-old athlete told the Irish Mirror of the brunette beauty he met at an Irish bar in 2008. "For me to be able to take her out of work, give her everything she’s ever wanted and to travel the world with, fills me with pride.”
He continued, “She’d drive me to the gym, and she’d listen to all my dreams. Dee is a lifesaver for me. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for her, and that’s for sure. I’m doing all of this for her.”
As for the Becky rumors, Rita has defended herself in the past. "I find it incredibly rude and disrespectful to women in general (when) we get accused of something that's basically against the important part — the music," she told Vanity Fair. 'First and foremost, JAY-Z is my inspiration and one of my idols — lyrically, musically, business-wise. I still look up to him and his wife every day. Beyoncé was one of my biggest idols growing up."
But seriously, can we stop calling Rita a Becky… It's getting old.
