Rita Ora has opened up about her break-up with Calvin Harris.

The couple were together for a year before the DJ suddenly called time on their relationship.

More news!

    The X Factor judge has revealed that she was left completely devastated after the split.

    In a new interview with Wonderland magazine, the 24 year old confessed: “At the time I just wanted to crawl in my bed and die. But I got out of it the other side, I’m surviving.”

    It’s extra awkward because Rita worked with Calvin on her upcoming second album, which is due for release at the beginning of next year.

    “I kind of saw the light at the end of the tunnel and I just wanted to change the vibe of the whole album,” she further explained. “It was initially a really lovey-dovey album because that’s where I was, but then I obviously didn’t feel like that.

    “I was like, ‘OK, I need to get back in the studio and write some ‘thank God my friends are great’ kind of music.’”

    We actually prefer those kind of toons anyway, Rita…
