Rita Ora's Mum 'Embarrasses Her In Front Of Jay-Z'

As the singer admits to being scared of erm, toilets...

Rita Ora has confessed that her mother always embarrasses her in front of Roc Nation boss Jay-Z.

The How We Do (Party) singer, who unleashed her debut album ORA this week, has told The Mirror that her mum always tells Jigga and wife Beyoncé stories about when she was a child.

Rita explained to the newspaper: "My mum is so embarrassing around Jay-Z and Beyoncé. She starts talking about when I was a baby and my nappy rashes!

"When they first met, my mum said to Jay, 'Are you the one who sang you've got 99 problems and a b*tch aint one?'

"He said, 'Yeah', and my mum goes, 'You've got the baddest b*tch', and points at Beyoncé. After that it was, 'See ya later Rita' and it was all about my mum and Jay."

If that wasn't embarrassing enough, the R.I.P. hitmaker has also admitted to being scared of going to the toilet.

The 21-year old claimed to being more frightened of loos than being a guest judge on The X Factor, telling the newspaper: "I always feel that when I go to the toilet that something's going to come out of the bottom.

“I have this thing where I think this tunnel must start from somewhere and sometimes I think, ‘What if something comes out of the toilet?’

“That’s been one of my fears. I always make sure I put the light on when I go.”

She recalled: "One time I tried to use the bathroom in the dark and I missed the toilet and I fell on the floor.

“I was going out with someone at the time and I was trying to be all smooth and cool and didn’t want them to hear me going to the toilet.

“So I walked in and couldn’t find the switch, so I went to the toilet and I fell on the floor."

She added: “He woke up and he said, ‘What happened?’ and all you could just hear is a crash. I said, ‘Nothing!’”
