Did Rita Ora let Calvin Harris down once again?
When the singer-actress stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday morning, she revealed that her ex had blocked her from performing “I Will Never Let You Down,” the song he wrote and produced for her, at the Teen Choice Awards last Sunday.
“For anybody who doesn’t understand how it works, he wrote and produced the song,” Rita told Ryan and co-host Giuliana Rancic. “So he has to approve anything TV-wise for anybody who doesn’t get it. And obviously he owns the rights to it and he didn’t approve the Teen Choice Awards.”
But Calvin isn’t approving Rita’s side of things either.
Early on Wednesday, the “Summer” artist told his story over a series of tweets, which he ended with a waving hand emoji.
