Fast and fuRIHousn Beef: Rita Ora grabs Rihanna movie role
The Bajan — whose new album Unapologetic went straight to No 1 this week — had been lined up to play the villain in upcoming blockbuster The Fast And The Furious 6.
But now it’ll be Rita in the limelight in supercars, alongside VIN DIESEL and DWAYNE “THE ROCK” JOHNSON.
A source said: “Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in Battleship. But schedules didn’t work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude.”
Rita’s spokeswoman refused to comment last night. But it’s another thing for Rihanna to whinge about when she has a meeting with their boss, JAY-Z.
A source said: “At first Rihanna thought Rita’s ‘copycat’ act was sweet. But she kicked off after seeing the red dress Rita wore to the VMAs. The umbrella prop annoyed her too.”
If I were Rita, I wouldn’t give two hoots what Rihanna thinks — especially as it’s Rita’s birthday today.
The Jigga Man doesn’t seem worried either. He’s given Rita a personalised Rolex watch worth about £30,000.
Beats a box of wine as a Christmas bonus.
