Azealia Banks‘ unexpected feud with Roc Nation singer Rita Ora has left fans and media confused and speculating about what could have possibly happened to turn the two stars into enemies. They are both playing the Future Music Festival in Australia and they seemed chummy enough at first, until Banks suddenly blasted Ora on Twitter.
“Ever since I arrived on this tour Rita’s been going out of her way to try and intimidate me,” tweeted Banks. “Taking all these candids of me when I wasn’t looking, then posting and deleting them like a weak b—h.”
Ora responded with an angry text, which Banks then posted on Instagram and she continued mocking Ora by referring to her as “Rihanna’s understudy.”
Now, of course, Azealia Banks has become notorious for randomly feuding with other celebrities. In just a year, she’s had words with T.I., Iggy Azalea, Jim Jones, Perez Hilton, Angel Haze, Kreayshawn, Lil’ Kim, Nicki Minaj and others. But no one quite understood what sparked her ire toward Ora.
That is, until now.
SUN is reporting that one source of animosity between the two could be Ora’s close “friendship” with British supermodel Cara Delevingne. An “unnamed source” alleged as much to the publication. “Azealia and Cara were close until Rita came on the scene,” they shared, and added, “Rita actually told people she’d wanted to work with the rapper.”
“But when she started calling Cara ‘wifey,’ Azealia got possessive and has held a grudge ever since,” they claim.
There could be some validity to the story, as Banks and Delevigne were very close as recently as late 2012, only for Rita to now claim that she and Cara are BFFs.
