Bebe Rexha says she doesn’t think Dua Lipa and Rita Ora’s feud will ever end

‘I’ve tried to always be the peace-keeper:’ Bebe Rexha says she doesn’t think Dua Lipa and Rita Ora’s feud will ever end even though she has tried to ‘bring the girls together’

Bebe Rexha has said she’s not sure that Dua Lipa and Rita Ora‘s ‘feud’ will ever end. 

The singer, 31, has claimed that she has ‘tried to always be the peace keeper’ and ‘bring the girls together’ but her efforts have failed.   

She added that she would ‘really love’ to do a collaboration with the pair of them, but isn’t sure ‘that will ever happen’.

Speaking about the pair’s relationship to The Sun, Bebe said: ‘I have really tried. I don’t know what’s really going on there or what the drama is. I’ve tried to always be the peace-keeper and bring the girls together.

‘For me, I would really love to do something together but I’m not sure that will ever happen. And I won’t say any more about that.’

Dua and Rita, who both have Albanian heritage, have never publicly spoken about their reported feud which is believed to have begun because the pair are compared within the industry.

Representatives for Dua and Rita have been contacted by MailOnline for a comment. 

Bebe told the publication she thinks that women sometimes become ‘competitive’ with each other within the music industry. 

She said: ‘It’s weird because I know how it is to be a girl and sometimes we can get really competitive. I’m not even talking about me, Dua, Rita and Ava, I’m just talking about females in general. What happens is there’s not enough women at the table.’

The star added that because she believes the music charts are so male dominated, it leaves women musicians with an ‘unspoken competitiveness’ between them. 

She went on to say that she knows both the ‘girls individually’ and that they are ‘all awesome chicks’ so she would love to work with them together one day.  

It comes after Rita and Dua reportedly avoided each other at the 2019 Met Gala and its subsequent spate of after-parties. 

At the time the singers were said to be locked in a private feud that reached boiling point at the event in May 2019, when both stars dazzled on the red carpet at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.

It was understood at the time that Dua had become frustrated with repeated comparisons to her contemporary as she endeavoured to be viewed as an original artist in her own right.  

A source told The Sun: ‘It’s a shame, as they used to be very close and Dua spoke a lot about how much she admired Rita. Dua even said she wanted to be just like Rita in the future. 

‘But now things have gone south dramatically and she is trying to distance herself — and she’s making no secret of it in the industry.

‘Rita is desperate to avoid confrontation and went out of her way to make sure they didn’t come face to face. She hates the drama but really wanted to go to the Met Gala and didn’t want a row to stop that.’  

The two stars followed their Met Gala appearance with separate visits to Katy Perry’s star-studded after-party at The Standard NYC. 

Rita was seen making her way inside with close friend Kate Moss, while Dua soon followed on the arm of her boyfriend, chef Isaac Carew. 

The two stars share similar backgrounds having both attended London’s prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre School after moving to the United Kingdom from their native Kosovo. 

MailOnline contacted a representative for further comment at the time.
