British pop star Rita Ora is a married woman. The 31-year-old singer married New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, 47.

They reportedly tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in her native London, England.

Rita will not take her husband’s last name. She will go by Rita Waititi-Ora.

A source told The Sun, Rita is planning “A big, showbiz-style bash to celebrate.”

“Rita’s already back in the studio working on her third album, with her latest session being with Ava Max and Noah Cyrus’ writer Rollo,” the source said.

The marriage surprised Rita’s fans since she and Waititi became engaged in September 2021 after dating less than 6 months. They announced their engagement 2 months ago.


Fans are concerned about the age difference, and they fear Rita is moving too quickly into marriage with a much older man.

Waititi finalized his divorce from his wife of 11 years, Chelsea Winstanley, a few months ago. They share two daughters.

Waititi also dated New Zealand actress and writer Loren Horsley for 10 years until 2011.
