Ora brought up their relationship during an interview with Marie Claire and she isn’t holding back the dirty details of how the relationship ended.
She explained that while the initial breakup was amicable, things went downhill in the aftermath. “There was a reason why I split up with him. And there was a reason why I’m at this point in my life where I feel like I have so much musical freedom, and I don’t have to explain myself to anybody… it was more of a thing where I was in awe. I was at that point in my relationship where I felt he could do no wrong.”
But then her single, “I Will Never Let You Down,” which Harris wrote and produced, was released.
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest last August, Ora revealed that she wanted to perform the single at the Teen Choice Awards, but Harris wouldn’t let her. “For anybody who doesn’t understand how it works, he wrote and produced the song, so he has to approve anything TV-wise… and obviously he owns the rights to it and he didn’t approve the Teen Choice Awards.”
In the Marie Claire interview, Ora revealed that she felt betrayed because she “thought he had my back.”
But Harris responded to the accusations on Twitter following the Ryan Seacrest interview, explaining, “You’ll only know 1 side of the story RE Teen choice awards because I choose not to talk to the papers about every aspect of my personal life. But just know I had a damn good reason.”
And while Ora’s throwing some shade at Harris, she also said some things about dating that all women can relate to.
“I’m afraid of being alone,” she said. “I’m not afraid to admit that, you know. I’m not embarrassed to admit that. I just hope it’s not a never-ending cycle. Sometimes love just makes you feel crazy. And that feeling that we have as girls, just to have that feeling, even for five seconds, it’s like crack. I mean, don’t compare it to that, but you know what I mean. It’s like comfort eating.”
