Bruno Mars and Rita Ora secretly dated before they both found fame, according to a report.
Britain's The Sun newspaper reports the R.I.P. hitmaker made the revelation during an interview with German magazine Bravo.
Ora is quoted as saying, "It was love at first sight, such a great experience. We met in 2009. I was 18 and starting out at Roc Nation. Bruno was unknown back then too.
"He was a struggling songwriter hired to write songs for me. I thought, 'Wow, that's just the world's greatest guy!'
"Our time together was wonderful. But once we got famous, work got in the way. We ended it last year. But we remained close. And when we were together we were so happy."
