Rapper Ricky Hil has vowed to “never work” with his girlfriend Rita Ora after her bad break up with ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ DJ Calvin Harris.
The 24-year-old rapper – who has been dating Rita since July – revealed that while he likes to be involved in certain aspects of his girlfriend’s artistry, he won’t ever join her in the recording studio because of the way things ended between the ‘Black Widow’ singer and her ex-boyfriend Calvin.
Ricky explained: “Rita and I listen to each other’s music and tell each other what we think, but I’d never work with her.
“I think that always ends relationship. It’s the same with designing, you’ve got to do your own thing and support each other when you can.”
Rita, 23, dated the ‘We Found Love’ DJ for just over a year before they split in June 2014.
Following their split, the 30-year-old DJ banned his former love from performing the track ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ – which they worked on together – at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards in August.
At the time, he cryptically tweeted: “You’ll only know 1 side… but just know I had a damn good reason (sic)”
However, chatting at the Charlotte Simone and Kyle De’volle bag launch at Steam & Rye in London on Tuesday (11.11.14), Ricky – who is the son of the American designer Tommy Hilfiger – revealed that he and his pop star girlfriend are getting along really well, despite the long distance.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I’m not living in London, but I visit all the time. I love it, especially the weather. It makes me appreciate how lucky we are in LA.”
