Rob Kardashian supports ex-girlfriend Rita Ora as she deals with criticism for 'Girls' lyrics and fans just can't keep up!
After a point, Ora's haters got so vocal about the song that she had to address the issue and explain herself on Twitter. Rob seemed to approve of her apology
It seems like Rob Kardashian has his ex's back, even if they have not been romantically linked for a long time now. The reality star, who once was furious with Rita Ora when they had a nasty breakup, now seems to be in full support of her in light of the massive criticism the singer is facing over the lyrics of her new song 'Girls'.
The 27-year-old recently released her new single that features other pop stars like Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX on Friday, but was struck with heavy criticism over some of the song lyrics.
A few lines of the song go like, “Sometimes I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls / Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls…” and “I am excited, I’m open-minded / I’m 50/50, and I’m never gonna hide it.”
Before the release, Ora had spoken about her new song in an interview, saying that she saw the song as a unifying anthem of sorts. “These past few years I’ve been so inspired by all the strong women I’ve seen who aren’t afraid to be themselves,” Rita told RapUp.
“For those who aren’t afraid to rule the world, this is our anthem. A celebration of love. And of course thank you to all the fellow boss women who so kindly graced this song with me — each representing who they are and where they are from. I hope you dance your socks off with us!”
Ok 2 things! My official new single Girls ft @iamcardib @beberexha @charli_xcx is out at MIDNIGHT! And I start my Sold OUT Girls Tour in Glasgow ALL at the same time!! I can’t wait to see you all, thank you to every single one of you who continues to support me and is coming to see a show!! Let’s go!! 💕💕💕#GirlsGirlsGirls
After a point, Ora's haters got so vocal about their complaints about the song that she had to address the issue and explain herself on Twitter.
"'Girls' was written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life. I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey," she shared with her fans. "I am sorry how I expressed myself in my song has hurt anyone."
After reading the heartfelt apology, poor Rob must have been feeling bad for his ex lover, and in order to show her that she still has his support, he retweeted the singer's apology with a set of six praise hands emojis.

All the people who have been Keeping Up With The Kardashians for the last decade are fully aware of the drama that took place with reference to the “Radioactive” singer and the Arthur George designer. Rob claimed at the time that he had gained 40 pounds while dating the singer and that she cheated on him with “nearly 20 dudes.”
The KUWTK star also revealed at a later point that he had bashed Ora online for the sole reason to make the split between them easier to bear, and more importantly, to stop him from taking her back. “I just had to do that to make her hate me.”
Ora, who moved on from the Kardashian and went on to date Calvin Karris post her breakup with the reality star, later gave her own explanation for all the ludicrous allegations she was facing from the sock connoisseur.
"I never mentally defined it as 'boyfriend, girlfriend'. When I split up with him, I said, 'It's because I'm never there, I don't know how to do it.' That's all I said, then ... the rest happened. He obviously felt that creating myths was the way forward."
On a slightly different topic. Can't believe Rita Ora and Rob Kardashian got their names tattoo'd on each other. pic.twitter.com/ZJs8gjzw— Ellen Harrison (@Ella_nora03) August 12, 2012
Well, Rob rising to the occasion and supporting his ex, fueled a lot of responses from fans on social media, and one of the most common concerns among them was: are the two past lovers getting back together any time soon?
This is the best thing that Rob has ever done, he is showing everyone that what happens in the past stays in the past and he keeps moving forwards and support great singer like @RitaOra well done Rob 🤗— Miranda Krasniqi (@MirandaKrasniqi) May 15, 2018
