We thought we were getting further confirmation that Rita Ora and Taika Waititi were an item. And we did. But then Tessa Thompson leaned in too (see the photos here).

Over the weekend, Ora and Waititi were spotted enjoying drinks on a Sydney balcony after Waititi’s all-night party. The couple who have been linked since April of this year were seen sharing a kiss and getting cosy with actress Tessa Thompson.

Thompson is set to star in the newest addition to the Thor franchise, Thor: Love and Thunder, which is being filmed in Australia this year. Many of the cast members have relocated to Sydney for the duration of filming, including director Waititi, who signed on for the project two years ago. While Ora is not starring in the production, she is rumoured to have moved into Waititi’s Sydney home with him while she appears as a judge on The Voice, Australia.

After her track “Girls” garnered backlash for seemingly making light of bisexuality in 2018, Ora confirmed she identifies as bisexual. The lyrics, “red wine, I just wanna kiss girls,” seemed to suggest that bisexuality is the result of alcohol consumption. She subsequently tweeted, “‘Girls’ was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life. I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey”.

Thompson has previously been linked to Dev Hynes and Janelle Monae and in 2018 told Porter magazine, “If people want to speculate about what we are, that’s okay. It doesn’t bother me.” But she has specified that she doesn’t care much for labels.

Neither do we. Whatever it is, the label doesn’t matter.
