Gerard Butler and Rita Ora did not hook up in a West Hollywood hotel on January 17, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story. We’re told there’s “no truth” to the claim.

According to Us Weekly, Ora and Butler allegedly “shacked up” in mid-January after sharing an “intimate dinner” at an undisclosed hotel’s restaurant. The tabloid quotes a so-called “onlooker” as saying, “They drank wine and she hugged him when he returned to the table from a break.” “Gerard paid the bill,” adds the magazine’s supposed source.

The magazine further notes how Ora recently posed topless for the French magazine Lui, and that Butler has been “on the prowl” since breaking up with his last girlfriend, interior designer Morgan Brown. The rest of the article quotes unnamed sources as saying men in the past have been “intimated” by Ora, and Butler’s “single and ready to get back out there.”

One thing glaringly missing, however, from the tabloid’s story is any evidence that Butler and Ora actually “hooked up.” The outlet has no sources who have any details beyond Butler paying the bill for dinner. Gossip Cop, however, checked in with several sources, and not one could confirm that Butler and Ora “shacked up,” as Us Weekly alleged. In fact, one source close to the actor exclusively assures Gossip Cop there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s report.
