Rita Ora confirms she married Taika Waititi in ‘perfect’ wedding
Rita Ora has confirmed she is married to Taika Waititi after months of keeping their wedding under wraps.
The singer, 32, shared the happy news while promoting her new single You Only Love Me on Heart Radio Breakfast on Friday.
Describing their wedding day as “perfect” and “special,” Ora said, “I’m officially off the market guys. I’ve chosen to keep it more private and to myself, but with my new video I’m playing with what could have been.”
The music video for her new song features a wedding scene with Ora wearing a rare vintage Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 1987 Rive Gauche dress.
Some of the singer’s famous friends make cameos in the video, including Sharon Stone, Kristen Stewart, Lindsay Lohan and Jodie Turner-Smith.
Ora said the video, which tells the story of a woman who seems nervous about her wedding day, plays on the rumors swirling around her and Waititi’s own nuptials.
“When the rumors started, ‘She is, isn’t she?’ I wanted to play on it. I wanted to do a wedding that didn’t go according to plan,” she said, adding, “It doesn’t mean that actually happened.”
While she didn’t share where or when the wedding was taking place, the “Body On Me” star revealed that it was “perfect” and “exactly, just how I wanted it.”

“It was beautiful and perfect. It’s nice to keep some things just for me sometimes, it was nice and sweet… sorry it’s not that interesting. I’m going to throw a big party one day,” she joked.
However, she said she was conflicted about whether or not to take Waititi’s surname now that they are married because she “worked very hard for this Ora name.”
It was first reported that Ora and Waititi had married in August 2022 after she posted a photo of herself with a wedding ring on Instagram.
They began dating in early 2021 and went public with their relationship in August of this year when they arrived as a couple for the California premiere of The Suicide Squad.
Last September she told Jaime Winstone Greatest night ever Podcast that she’s “very much in love” and that her romance with Waititi is a “fairy tale.”
“My parents have been together for over 30 years, so it was always about finding a partner. So I’m really glad I did it. I made that choice and it made me happy,” she added.
