Rita Ora cuddles up with Thor director Taika Waititi at Stan premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race

Rita Ora has continued to set tongues wagging over her bond with filmmaker Taika Waititi. 

The British pop singer 30, and the New Zealand-born Thor director, 45, stepped out together on Friday night, attending the Stan premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under in Sydney. 

Daily Mail Australia can reveal that the pair snuck into the venue and took their seats side by side at the front of the audience, after avoiding being photographed together on the red carpet.

As they awaited the start of the event, Rita and Taika talked closely together, whispering in one another’s ears as the singer appeared to lay her hand on Taika’s shoulder. 

The outing is the latest in a series of meet-ups between the pair, who have ignited romance rumours. 

Rita recently sent fans into a frenzy when she shared an incredibly cosy photo with Taika to Instagram.

In the image, Taika sported a cap, partially concealing his identity as Rita penned a revealing caption: ‘Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love..’ alongside a heart emoji.  

It’s also been reported the two stars have been ‘dating for over a month’ while the songstress has been in Sydney filming The Voice.

According to The Sun, Rita and Taika have made no secret they are together among their famous friends and things could be getting serious.

‘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,’ a source told the publication.   

The rumoured couple were also spotted exiting a private jet with Chris Hemsworth, his wife Elsa and Matt Damon in Sydney recently, following a trip to the Gold Coast.   

A listener of the Who? Weekly podcast fuelled further romance speculation as they reported seeing the couple kissing inside a restaurant.

Yet on Tuesday morning, the pop star expertly dodged questions about her love life during an appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

At the end of the interview, radio host Kyle Sandilands asked Rita: ‘I know you don’t want to talk to much about this stuff, but are you able to sneak lovers in and out of your joint or are you finding that difficult?’ 

After a long pause, the Body On Me singer responded carefully: ‘I think for me I’m just focusing on getting fit to be honest.’

‘That’s fantastic, I can read between the lines,’ Kyle jokingly replied.

Rita split from French director Romain Gavras earlier this year. 

It is believed that Taika split from his wife, Chelsea Winstanley, in 2018 following seven years of marriage. They share two daughters, Te Hinekāhu, eight, and Matewa Kiritapu, five. 

Taika is currently directing the Thor sequel and last year scooped an Oscar for best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit 

RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under will premiere May 1, only on Stan, with new episodes weekly. 

New love interest? It is believed that Taika split from his wife, Chelsea Winstanley, in 2018. He is currently directing the Thor sequel and last year scooped an Oscar for Jojo Rabbit
