The pop babe and the film director hunk have set tongues wagging after Rita shared a photo of her hands with her engagement finger mysteriously covered – before swiftly deleting the photo
Rita Ora and Taika Waititi have sparked rumours they might be engaged after the pop babe shared a photo of her wedding finger online.
While the 30-year-old’s pink-manicured hands were covered in rings, the chart topping star drew attention to her wedding finger on her left hand as she covered it with a flame emoji – immediately igniting speculation she is engaged.
The star has been in a relationship with New Zealander and Hollywood blockbuster director Taika, 46, since March this year.

It has been reported that Rita moved in with Taika in his Sydney home in May – with Rita Down Under working on the Australian version of The Voice, and Taika filming Thor: Love and Thunder in the country too.
Rita had previously been dating French-Greek filmmaker Romain Garvais – with the couple confirming they had split back in March this year.
The duo had decided to split: “because of difficulties with their respective work commitments” they said in a statement – with Rita relocation to Sydney the month before their split was confirmed.
While Taika was previously married to New Zealand film producer Chelsea Winstanley in 2011 – but the couple broke up in 2018, with their split not revealed until 2020.
Rita and Taika’s romance was first uncovered back in April.
A source told The Sun at the time: “They’ve been a couple since early March but kept things low key. However, all their friends know about the relationship – they’re really into each other.”
Last month, the couple walked hand-in-hand at the premiere of The Suicide Squad in which Taika had a role.
The pair beamed on the red carpet as they confirmed their romance is going from strength to strength.
And reports emerged soon after that Rita is moving to Los Angeles to be closer to her film director boyfriend.

A source declared: “It’s become increasingly obvious for her that LA is going to be where she lives for the foreseeable.
“It feels a bit like there are some bad memories in London and she’s happy to start afresh in LA where there are loads of new opportunities.
“After her birthday bash last year, Rita left the UK and hasn’t been back since.”
