Rita Ora's family affair

Rita Ora has hired her family.

The 'I Will Never Let You Down' hitmaker - whose older sister Elena already works as part of her management team - has recruited her parents Vera and Besnik Sahatçiu to help her manage her £6 million fortune.

The star's brother Don and sister Elena have also been hired by the 'Black Widow' hitmaker to help her make investments in property and steady firms.

A source close to the 24-year-old singer, who has a string of hits to her name, has revealed to the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper that Rita is even more focused than most about securing her fortune after her difficult and poverty-stricken upbringing in Kosovan capital Pristina.

Meanwhile, Rita previously revealed she has earned more money from her endorsement deals than her music sales.

Speaking about making the foray into fashion, she said: "I don't know if ad campaigns are people's priorities, but I think there are different types of artists nowadays.

"I would say there are Sam Smith and Adele and these amazing musicians that just stick to their music and it works for them. Then there are other artists like myself, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Pharrell who don't mind collaborating fashion-wise and still being in charge of their music."
