Rita Ora faced backlash after she uploaded pictures with Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor at the British Fashion Awards in London, captioning them ‘Date night’.
The songstress’ comment sparked backlash, as Conor has been with his childhood sweetheart Dee Devlin for nine years and they welcomed their first child together this year.
And it appears that Olivia Buckland was also not a fan of the cosy pictures.

Writing to her 4716k Twitter followers, Olivia warned the Everywhere singer to stay away from her fiancé, Alex Bowen.
She wrote: “I mean I loved Rita Ora but girl you about to put “date night” on a pic with my man and I would have to mark you six feet. Bye. #teamdev”.
She later said that she believed Rita and Conor’s ‘date night’ was just a publicity stunt.

She mused: “Although I do kinda think all of ‘em are sitting laughing at it as a publicity stunt or just bants. I reckon Dev took the pic or something.”
When a fan later questioned her on the threat issued to Rita, Olivia clarified that she didn’t actually mean it.
She said: “It’s all tongue in cheek my love… I wouldn’t actually hurt a fly I think it’s a publicity stunt.”
Conor has now responded to the backlash as he gave 27 year old Rita Oraa shout out while partying in London nightclub, Cirque Le Soir.
The Irish MMA fighter was filmed dancing and holding a microphone in the club’s DJ booth, before shouting: “Shout out to Rita Ora”, to the packed crowd.
He then placed his hand on his heart, as the club’s partygoers cheered.
