A$AP Rocky doesn’t often beef with other celebs, but he gave his fans a major shocker this week when his new album At.Long.Last.A$AP was released and listeners heard a scathing Rita Ora diss on the record. Now, Rocky is explaining exactly why he took those shots at Ora.

In the now-infamous song “Better Things,” Rocky blasted Ora for kissing and telling about a sexual encounter they had.

“I swear that b—- Rita Ora got a big mouth/Next time I see her might curse the b—- out/Kicked the b—- out once cause she b—-ed out/Spit my kids out, j—– up all in her mouth and made the b—- bounce,” Rocky rapped.

Unsurprisingly, listeners around the globe were shocked by the revelation, and in an interview with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, Rocky explained why he threw such devastating shade at Ora.

“I just want to clarify, this isn’t me saying, people don’t go listen to Rita Ora, or she’s an ugly person or nothing, I’m not saying she’s a terrible person. I’m just saying that when I was in a relationship and I did things with her that I wasn’t supposed to do, she had a big mouth,” Rocky explained.

It’s safe to say that the relationship Rocky is referring to is his former romance with supermodel Chanel Iman, whom Rocky split from last June with the explanation, “I knew that—she deserves better than me.”

Despite whatever issues Rocky had with Ora, he explains the pop singer really isn’t a bad person. Read what Rocky had to say about Ora after the cut.
