Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have been seen kissing – not just one other, but also Tessa Thompson, who plays Thor: Ragnarok.
The handsy trio was photographed by paparazzi on Waititi’s balcony in Sydney over the weekend following an all-night party, according to the Daily Mail.
Waititi can be seen in the Mail’s exclusive images with his arms stretched around Thomson and Ora, who at one point lean in to kiss in front of the Hunt for the Wilderpeople director.
Ora and Waititi, who have apparently been dating for months, showed off their PDA as usual, but the Kiwi filmmaker also kissed Thompson on the lips at another point during the festivities.
Thompson and Ora were also photographed face-to-face, gazing into one other’s eyes.
Some social media users have speculated that Ora, Thompson, and Waititi are in a polyamrous relationship as a result of the intimate photographs.
“I would’ve slapped you and called you a liar if you told me Tessa Thompson, Rita Ora, and Taika Waititi would be in a throuple a year ago,” one tweet says.
“Is there room in this Rita Ora, Taika Waititi, Tessa Thompson triumvirate for another? I’m looking for a friend (me) “another inquired.
“I didn’t have Rita Ora in a poly relationship with Taika Waititi and Tessa Thompson on my 2021 bingo card,” a third said.
Other observers, on the other hand, believed the “touchy feely” images were simply the result of a drunken night and close friendship.
One tweet reads, “Maybe they are just affectionate folks offering affection to individuals they have affection for.”
“Friendships like these exist in my life. Platonic, affectionate, and flirtatious at times. I adore it as well as them “another person stated.
Ora and Waititi originally fueled romance rumours in April when the ‘Your Song’ singer posted an Instagram photo of the two cuddling up together. Waititi is presently in Sydney filming Thor: Love and Thunder, while Ora is a judge on The Voice Australia.
