Rita Ora hits back at claims she had an affair with Jay Z

Rita Ora has hit back at claims she had an affair with Jay Z.

The 'I Will Never Let You Down' hitmaker took to Twitter to insist she has "nothing but the utmost respect for Beyoncé" after she was romantically linked to the 'Empire State of Mind' rapper.

She wrote: "I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyoncé. Let's continue enjoying Lemonade."

The 24-year-old singer was accused of having an affair with Jay Z after Beyoncé appeared to hint on her new LP 'Lemonade' that he had cheated on her with a "Becky with good hair".

Fans believed Rita had been dropping hints the songs were about her after she posted cryptic pictures on her Snapchat account.

One saw her don a skimpy outfit with the bikini with a lemon print hiding her modesty. She also posted a snap of herself wearing a gold necklace with the initial 'J' on it.

Fans of the 'Run The World' hitmaker sided with their idol over the weekend as she appeared to open up about her marriage in a HBO show to promote her new LP.

In one song, she sang: "Looking at my watch he should have been home. I regret the day I put that ring on ...

"My daddy warned me about men like you cause every promise, don't work out that way. Nothing seems to hurt like the smile on your face."
