‘ANTM’ Contestant Claims She Was Booted for Dating Rita Ora’s Ex, Calvin Harris
One America's Next Top Model contestant claims new host Rita Ora is anything but nurturing, and that Ora actually had her eliminated as revenge for dating Ora's ex, Calvin Harris.
Krislian Rodriguez, ANTM's requisite "too sexy" model, was booted from Season 23's sixth episode for failing to impress in a shoot with Chanel Iman, and told TMZ she was sure the fact that she dated Harris put her at a disadvantage. Further, she accused Ora of being a mean girl and routinely icing her own when the two would cross paths before the ANTM season had even begun filming.
"Definitely, going into the show, Rita already knew who I was, so I was at a disadvantage and it kinda sucks," Rodriguez said. "There was definitely some rivalry happening with her which I didn't understand, but it happens. It's not the first time we've bumped into each other since the whole Calvin thing happened. It's never been a nice interaction. I knew it was not good news for me. It was more like a mean girl situation."
"Rita Ora was more like a Regina George," she added.
Ora dated Harris from 2013 to 2014. She said the breakup was initially amicable, but that the relationship went south after the release of Ora's "I Will Never Let You Down," which Harris produced. Ora said he wouldn't allow her to perform it publicly, especially at the Teen Choice Awards, according to Us Weekly.
Harris cryptically tweeted in response "Just know I had a damn good reason."
