Rita Ora has finally broken her silence following her split from Calvin Harris.

The How We Do singer didn't comment when the DJ tweeted to confirm that their romance had come to an end.

But she has now opened up in her own message on Twitter, saying the couple had a great relationship while it lasted.

She wrote: "I don't usually address speculation but I've had an incredible time w Calvin,& i will treasure the memories.

"I've moved on from this topic so i hope people will respect that and do the same."

The 23-year-old later added: "Life can only be understood backwards but it must be lived forwards."

Rita and Calvin had been dating for several months after getting together last year, and neither has revealed a reason for the split.

Calvin recently tweeted: "To address speculation - myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best."
