"Married him in spite of the last Thor movie? Must be true love': Fans Flood the Internet To Troll Taika Waititi as Rita Ora Officially Ties the Knot With Thor 4 Director

The sudden distancing of people in 2020 resulted in them coming crashing together over the next two years in newly formed friendships and budding relationships. And among the latter category are Taika Waititi and Rita Ora. First spotted on Instagram in April 2021, the couple would consecutively go on to make their live debut over the next few months and make themselves too busy being in love with each other.

With a perfect year and a half to their relationship, fans, and paparazzi soon grew obsessed with the idea of the two being secretly married, or at least engaged, at the very least. It looks like the online frenzy surrounding the two celebrities’ relationship status has finally gained closure when the singer announced that she’s now married to the Thor: Ragnarok director.

On April 21, 2021, the Fifty Shades trilogy actress, The Voice coach, and British singer-songwriter posted a series of pictures in a flash of nostalgic memorabilia of the things, events, and people she captioned – “Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love.” Among the latter belonged Tessa Thompson and Taika Waititi. The picture soon sparked rumors of the celebrity singer and Hollywood director dating each other which was to be confirmed in three months’ time when the pair debuted on the red carpet during the premiere of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.

The next 20 months have been a blessed joy for the audience to witness the quirky duo and their equally quirky shenanigans on social media and live appearances. The couple also went on to co-host the MTV Europe Music Awards in 2022 and followed up the eventful year with their Met Gala appearance, a Rolling Stones concert, Ora-Thompson-Waititi’s infamous three-way kiss, award shows, and Oscar parties.

As 2022 was drawing to a close, the new Rita Ora single was on its way to the surface. The You Only Love Me music video, released on January 27, features a wedding-themed song whose neon-colored visuals resonate with the personality of the singer, her Kiwi beau, and more prominently, served to rile up the rumors of her being married. During a promotional appearance on the Heart Breakfast Show, Ora claimed – “Yes. Here we are […] I am officially off the market, people.”

As soon as news of the secret wedding hit the internet, audiences have been up and milling about on social media to troll the British chart-topping singer. The wedding which took place in a very private ceremony and was held in December 2022 has occupied a certain niche interest among the public because of the two most unlikely people finding a happily ever after with each other.

While one has been crowned as the comeback queen (after numerous disasters threatened to bring her career down and Ora championed her struggles to rise to Billboard #1), the other has mostly faced the wrath of a billion-strong fandom for the disastrous turnout of Thor: Love and Thunder. The audience frenzy as of now seems to be engrossed to draw a comparison between the two artists and their contributions to the industry.

The Rita Ora single was released as a reaffirmation of her marriage to the filmmaker after speculations and rumors kept consistently hounding the celebrity couple with no end. The star-studded music video comprises a roster of the dynamic duo’s A-lister Hollywood acquaintances ranging from Kristen Stewart to Lindsay Lohan to a quick and rare cameo from Sharon Stone.
