Taika Waititi, Rita Ora and Tessa Thompson were spotted snuggling up and kissing, and the internet is going crazy.
The trio were photographed on the balcony of Waititi’s home in Sydney after what Daily Mail reported was an all-night party. In the Mail’s exclusive snaps, we see Waititi relaxing with his arms draped around Ora and Thompson.
The Jojo Rabbit director and the singer can be seen kissing passionately in some of the images that have surfaced online. In one photo, Ora is seen sitting nose-to-nose with Thompson, while in another, she seems to be whispering something to her. In yet another photo, Waititi is seen sharing a kiss with Thompson.
Are Taika Waititi, Rita Ora and Tessa Thompson in an open relationship?
Rita Ora and Taika Waititi made their relationship public last month when they arrived together at the RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under premiere at the Sydney Opera House.
The Your Song singer is in Australia to shoot for The Voice. Sydney Morning Herald’s Private Sydney recently reported that she has even “moved in” with the director.
Just last week, they were seen out for lunch at the Chiswick restaurant in Woollahra.
While fans expected Rita Ora and Taika Waititi to indulge in PDA, their recent photos have sparked rumors that they are in a polyamorous relationship with Tessa Thompson.
Thompson is in Australia to film Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder. She’ll be reprising her role as Valkyrie from 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, which too was directed by Waititi.
In 2018, the actress had announced that she is attracted to both men and women. However, she declined to label herself bi******.
Meanwhile, Twitter users were quick to react to the photos. “Rita Ora being in a poly relationship with Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson wasn’t on my 2021 bingo card but here we are,” read a tweet.
Other users refused to believe the rumors and said the trio was probably just being affectionate. “Maybe they are just affectionate people showing affection to people they have affection for,” a user tweeted.
