Rita Ora Calls Rumors of Throuple with Husband Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson 'Ridiculous'

Rita Ora is dismissing those "absurd" rumors that she was in a three-way relationship with now-husband Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson. Back in May

2021, the singer/actress was photographed kissing and cuddling with the Thor: Love and Thunder director and Thompson in Sydney, Australia. In a new interview with British GQ, Ora,

32, is explaining why she chose not to respond to the rumors at the time. "I just chose to not acknowledge that because it's ridiculous," she said. "I think when some

things are so absurd, and it's hard to fathom any sense of it, you just have to ignore it. I've taken that approach for a lot of things, because you don't want to put energy

towards something that's nonexistent. It's like trying to explain something that didn't happen means you're feeding into nothing." Ora added of the moment the photos

captured, "Have you ever been in a situation where you've had a lot of drinks and everyone's your best friend? And then the next day you're like, 'I was talking to this person in

the smoking area for four hours and I've got no idea who they are?' Literally — that [photo] was just a bunch of friends having a good time." "They [Taika and Tessa] had a

crazy schedule and everyone was letting loose," she continued. "I love that. Each to their own." RELATED: Rita Ora Denies Rumor She Was 'Becky' on Beyoncé's Lemonade: 'Take
