Rita Ora linked to rapper

Pop star Rita Ora has a new man in her life after moving on from rocker Travis Barker, according to a U.K. report.

The R.I.P. singer has previously dated stars including DJ Calvin Harris and Ricky Hil, son of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, and was most recently linked to Blink-182 drummer Travis.


However, a new report suggests Rita has moved on from Travis, who she was linked to last year (15), and is now dating rapper Yoni Laham.


The pair was pictured together in Los Angeles last week (ends24Jan16), and Yoni was snapped cuddling up to Rita


"Rita and Yoni have been getting on really well and she loves his company," a source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper. "He is a bit of a socialite and they have a lot in common... A lot of her mates are saying that she and Yoni are officially an item but it's still early days. Knowing Rita, she will be taking things slow, she won't rush into anything too quickly."


Last year (15), Rita admitted she fears her high-profile love life is overshadowing her music career.


"The work is forgotten overnight if you're seen with a person or something like that," she told the London Evening Standard. "It's more like, 'Give me the respect that I deserve as a hard-working independent female'. That's really the bottom line of it. The mental capacity that people have - don't fill it with nonsense. Again, maybe I just need to have no personal life."


Rita dated Scottish DJ Calvin for a year before they split in June, 2014, and he went on to strike up a romance with another pop star, Taylor Swift. The singer later admitted she was heartbroken by the split.
