British R&B star Rita Ora has played down rumours of a romance with rapper Drake, insisting they are just "really good friends".
Jay Z's singing protegee worked with Drake on her debut single R.I.P. and supported him on the U.K. leg of his Club Paradise tour, and reports suggested their professional relationship had turned personal.
One source even claimed they had been caught kissing backstage at a gig in Newcastle, England last month (Apr12), but Ora has brushed off the love lies.
She says, "We're really good friends actually... He has my back so it's really nice to know I have a guy that's a good friend like that."
The Best I Ever Had hitmaker has since sparked rumours he's moved on with supermodel Tyra Banks after they were photographed enjoying a date at Disneyland in California.
