The winner of the X-factor series, James Arthur has confirmed that he had thing with Rita Ora. It all started when Rita came on to the series as a guest judge and the singing hunk caught her eyes.
OK! reports that James had been accused previously for “kissing and telling” on blonde bombshell, Rita, the former X-factor judge. In a rap, James Arthur referred to their fling. The song debuted on Radio 1Xtra.
The words in the lyrics included, “Some people’s auras [Ora’s] and demeanours can deceive us, what they really want is a piece of your penis” and also, “I’m giving 10 million f***s less than Rita does and that’s a lot of f***s.”
Since then, rumors of them two being together once circulated, but Arthur only confirmed this today.
James told the Evening Standard, “Me and Rita were seeing each other on-and-off for a few months,” and added, “then we just stopped talking. Maybe it was bad for her image to be seen with me”. He even talked about how it made him feel by saying,” I was a little bitter about that because she’d said she had a lot of feelings for me.”
He also recently told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford of “This Morning” about the darkest phases of his life. He explained, “There was a lot of pressure and a lot of judgement. I was just taking a chance and wanted make something better for myself.”, and continued, “Before The X Factor I was self medicating quite a bit just to get through that stuff.”
Nicole Scherzinger mentored James while he was on the X-factor show last weekend, where he received huge applause for his performance and for bringing light and brightness to World Mental Health Day.
