Recently, Rita Ora managed to stir up a bit of drama on social media after posting a picture of herself with MMA Champion, Conor McGregor.

But it wasn't the fact that she was conversing with him that caused the issue, people were furious that the singer captioned the photo 'Date Night', despite the fact he has a girlfriend.

The 'Anywhere' artist uploaded two snaps of the pair while at the British Fashion Awards in London. While it seemed to some to be tongue-in-cheek, her post on Twitter and Instagram was flooded with angry comments.

Critics are mainly upset at the idea that, because they both have partners, it's wrong to sit next each other and look like they enjoy their company.

The MMA fighter also came under fire after photos emerged of him looking a bit cosy with a 'Vegas stripper', however the video was reportedly dated from 2013.

Now, Conor's partner Dee Devlin has spoke out on social media for the first time since everyone royally kicked off, and she posted an adorable picture of their son with the caption "Bedtime Face."

While she hasn't actually responded to the fans questions themselves, people have been commenting on her social media 'warning' her about Conor's behaviour away from her.

One user wrote: "you need to hire a nanny and start going to events with your man because hes making you look dumbbbbb either that or hes being an attention seeker and all three of u are in.[sic]"

Another commented: "Girl you should put your man in place he's out there acting like a horny pubescent boy. Don't let him embarrass you like that your too god for him and he should be reminded of that."

Rita has since tried to calm everyone down about the situation by uploading another picture on her Instagram page. This time it is with her actual boyfriend, Andrew Watt.

Rita also chucked up an image of her with Donatella Versace with the caption, 'Last night with my real date'. But that didn't stop the comments from being piled onto her accounts.

Julie wrote: "Oi mate, you've got a woman at home who's stuck by you from day one, gave you a kid and devotes her life to your sport. Stop messing around." (sic)

Klaudia added: "He should have a respect for his wife at the first place and don't look at Rita like she's a piece of meat or something."

Even McGregor's teammate, Artem Lobov, said: "Sorry Rita, Burgers are nice but not when a man has steak at home."

One thing that probably doesn't sit well with some about Rita is the rumours that she once had a fling with Jay Z behind Beyonce's back. When Beyonce dropped her album, Lemonade, she referred to 'Becky with the good hair' in the song 'Sorry'.

Immediately, people started trying to find out who this mysterious 'Becky' is, and the masses settled on Rita. She tried to shut down the haters by writing on social media: "I never usually address tabloid gossip but, let me be clear, these rumours are false.

"I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let's continue enjoying Lemonade."

A source close to the star told the Mirror that she was 'mortified' at being labelled a home wrecker and that the allegations against her were completely 'unfounded'.

But that didn't stop her social media accounts being filled with people leaving bee emojis in the comments section.
