IT’S THE SHOCK re­la­tion­ship no one saw com­ing. Ru­mour emerged last week that Rita Ora is dat­ing An­drew Garfield fol­low­ing her split from her mu­si­cian boyfriend An­drew Watt.

They met through ‘the party set’ and have been to­gether ‘since Novem­ber’, a well-placed source told Grazia. ‘Rita is gush­ing to her friends about him, say­ing, “I can’t be­lieve I’m dat­ing Spi­der-man.”’

An­drew pre­vi­ously dated Emma Stone on-and-off af­ter they met on the set of Spi­der-man in 2011, be­fore even­tu­ally split­ting in 2015. Since then, he’s been pic­tured with ac­tor Susie Abromeit. Rita, mean­while, dated mu­si­cian An­drew for 13 months, split­ting in Septem­ber.

De­spite keep­ing her new re­la­tion­ship un­der wraps, ‘Rita let slip to pals about An­drew a month ago,’ said a close source. ‘ Their sched­ules make things dif­fi­cult but they have a real con­nec­tion.’ ‘It’s early days,’ another insider told Grazia. ‘ They’ve been on a few dates in New York, where An­drew is based. Rita was there for Thanks­giv­ing and also went to Soho House with him. She likes how pri­vate and un­starry he is. She’s been with peo­ple who are real fame-whores be­fore, but An­drew is not like that at all.’

In­deed, de­spite be­ing seen to­gether at the Evening Stan­dard The­atre Awards two weeks ago, Rita was ap­par­ently wor­ried about the story leak­ing. ‘An­drew is pri­vate too. They were hook­ing up but try­ing to keep it on the down-low. It’s go­ing well, though, and Rita is happy.’
