Rita Ora ‘secretly dating’ former Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield

Rita Ora has been secretly dating Andrew Garfield, it has been revealed.

The pair are said to be in the early stages of their romance, after Rita split with partner Andrew Watt in September.

Rita and music producer Andrew were together for 13 months before separating.

Two weeks ago she was spotted attending the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London along with Oscar nominated actor Andrew.

A source close to Rita told The Sun: "Rita let slip to pals about her brewing romance about a month ago.

“But in recent days things have started to heat up and she says what they have is the real deal.

“It is still very early days but they like each other and are seeing what happens. Their schedules make things difficult but they have a real connection."

Mirror has contacted representatives for comment.

Andrew previously had a high profile relationship with his Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone.

Despite their split, the pair have remained close friends and were photographed catching up over dinner earlier this year.

Gushing about his ex, Andrew said: "I’m constantly inspired by her work. I’m constantly inspired by how she handles and holds herself.

"It’s been bliss to be able to watch her success and watch her bloom into the actress that she is."

While Rita has dated a few star men since launching into the spotlight – including Calvin Harris, Rob Kardashian and James Arthur.

When it came to Calvin, 33, – whom she dated for over a year in 2013 and 2014 – Rita was banned from performing any work they collaborated on post-split, including her hit I Will Never Let You Down, until the DJ lifted the ban last year .
