'I had a damn good reason' - Calvin Harris defends blocking ex Rita Ora from Teen Choice Awards
Calvin Harris had some choice words for his ex Rita Ora today.
Earlier this week it was reported that the superstar DJ blocked his ex-girlfriend from performing at the Teen Choice Awards the song they recorded together, I Will Never Let You Down.
When asked about the last minute cancellation, Ora told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show: “I was supposed to perform, but Calvin wrote and produced the song... he owns the rights to it. He has to approve anything TV-wise. He didn’t approve the Teen Choice Awards.”
As for the reason behind the decision, she said: “You should ask him. You write a song with somebody and I guess there’s some stuff that comes with it. The show was going to be awesome and ... I [even] put my own money into the performance, like I always do.”
But Harris has hit back on Twitter this morning, saying: "You'll only hear one side of the story re choice awards because I choose not to talk to the papers about every aspect of my personal life.
"But just know I had a damn good reason."
