So, here’s the thing about celebrities. We see all the photographs taken of them in public and all the posts they choose to share on social media, but we never really know what’s going on behind the scenes. Sometimes, something will catch us off-guard like a surprising friendship or a relationship that was totally off our radar. That’s why when we found out that actor Andrew Garfield and singer Rita Ora are allegedly dating, it came completely out of left field. Beyond being British and famous, we didn’t know if the stars had anything else in common but here we are.
According to The Sun, the pair have been casually seeing one another and it’s still relatively new. However a source claimed, ‘Rita let slip to pals about her brewing romance about a month ago. But in recent days, things have started to heat up and she says what they have is the real deal. It is still very early days but they like each other and are seeing what happens.’
It’s surprising that the Let You Love Me star has time for romance, given that Rita’s currently doing a ton of press for her new album Phoenix. She also just wrapped up one of her biggest gigs of the year: performing at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show on live television.
The source continued, ‘[Andrew and Rita’s] schedules make things difficult but they have a real connection.’
That said, they may have had a little more time together recently. The pair were both in attendance at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, but they sneakily avoided coming in together.
Previously, Rita was romantically linked to music producer Andrew Watt and the pair dated for 13 months before splitting earlier this October. On the other hand, Andrew Garfield was seen earlier this year having dinner with his former flame Emma Stone according to The Sun though nothing seems to have materialised there.
We’ll just have to wait to see how things play out between Andrew and Rita, if they say anything about it at all. The beginning stages of a relationship are always a bit weird and we bet it’s even weirder when it’s been thrown into the media spotlight, so here’s hoping they manage to stick it out.
