It looks like Blink 182 drummer and British singer/actress Rita Ora are officially an item.
The new couple were recently spotted having brunch in West Hollywood. TMZ reported that Ora has actually recently been staying at Barker’s home in Los Angeles every night.
Both Barker and Ora have had relationships with celebrities. Barker was married to model/beauty queen Shanna Moakler from 2004-2009 (they have two children together), and was with UFC ring girl and model Arianny Celeste. The “Black Widow” singer, on the other hand, has dated Rob Kardashian and Bruno Mars.
Barker, 39, and Ora, 24, first met at the Power 106 All-Star Game in Los Angeles in September. He recalled this day in an interview with US Weekly: “I performed there with Tyga and Kid Ink. We had just met through passing. We have a mutual friend named Willie T … I had walked up and he was like, ‘Yo, take a picture with Rita.’ And I was like, ‘Okay.'”
“We just took a photo together, but obviously she’s stunning and she’s awesome,” he added.
Barker also dismissed rumors that this new relationship left Moakler bitter, saying that they have not been romantically involved for six to seven years.
“One word for that: just thirsty. Thirsty. I have no connection to my baby’s mama except that she’s the mother of my children. I don’t know where those rumors are coming from. That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard,” he said.
Barker is clearly not hiding the relationship, as he has made an Instagram post with he and Ora getting cozy. He recently posted a photo of them in Universal Studios, captioned “At @horrornights with the mama” for all his 1.2 million followers to see.
