Rita Ora has squashed the rumors that she and Drake are dating. The 21-year-old songbird insists that she and the Young Money rapper are good friends and there’s no hanky panky going on. However, Drake did pen her latest single ‘R.I.P.,’ but their relationship didn’t go beyond the studio.

Rita is grateful that Drizzy is in her corner and someone that she can call on if she needs advice in the music biz. “He has my back so it’s really nice to know I have a guy that’s a good friend like that,” she says (via The Boombox).

Drake also denied that he and Ora were item back in March. During an interview with KISS FM (U.K.), he spoke fondly of the Kosovo-born singer and the gift that she gave him for writing ‘R.I.P.’

“One of the greatest gifts I ever received in my whole life — I wear it every day — is this ring right here,” Drake explains while showing off the gold-plated ring with a black ruby gemstone. “Rita actually gave me this ring. We’re dear friends. ‘R.I.P.’ is a song that I originally wrote for Rihanna [and she] actually didn’t take the song … Rita expressed interest in it and anything I can do for Rita, I will do.”

Friendships aside, Ora is now trying to figure out how to maneuver around the nagging paparazzi. “I’m like, oh my God, they care!” she grumbles.
