Rita Ora gifts house to parents

Rita Ora has gifted a house to her parents because she's "never really in one place".

The 24-year-old star has revealed she's decided to hand the keys to her £1.3 million house in North London to her parents, Vera and Besnik, because she doesn't have the time to spend in the six-bedroom mansion.

Rita told Free Radio: "I think I've ended up giving the house to my parents, actually. They need it more than me. I'm never really in one place.

"I'm back to square one but at least my parents have a place."

Meanwhile, Rita was recently forced to defend her collaboration with controversial singer Chris Brown, saying "no one cares" about his criminal record provided he makes good music.

Rita lauded Chris despite him being convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend Rihanna after a pre-Grammy party in 2009.

She said: "Chris Brown is strong, powerful and someone that is important to me personally and professionally.

"The discrimination and all what people think? If you have a great song then no one cares."

What's more, Rita insisted he's fundamentally a "good person" and had no qualms about working with him.

She said: "I love him on different levels. I see how he treats his people and he's a good person with a good heart and a lovely family.

"It's really nice that we finally got together because, regardless of what's happened, the song is just amazing."
