Just weeks after it was confirmed that Australian filmmaker Taika Waititi is dating British singer-songwriter Rita Ora, the couple is now making headlines once again for being seen kissing Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder co-star Tessa Thompson. I repeat, both Waititi and Ora were captured kissing Thompson while relaxing in the sun after an all-night party in Sydney. That’s what I call an after-party situation.

Apart from leaning over for kisses, the throuple was also seen smiling and embracing each other over drinks. The photos have since gone viral on Twitter, with many people speculating the exact nature of their relationship. “Are Rita Ora and Taika Waititi in an open relationship with Tessa Thompson?” a Twitter user asked. “They seem happy…good on them,” another cheered them on.

Soon after the initial viral tweet was posted, a series of users tweeted the tweet with their own reactions. Here are some of the best ones:

It was reported that Ora was in Sydney to film the upcoming season of a singing show while Oscar-winning director Waititi is there shooting his widely anticipated Marvel superhero movie Thor: Love and Thunder.

Last month, rumours surfaced that Ora and Waititi were dating after she shared a collection of pictures on Instagram. One of the images showcased Waititi hugging her, accompanied with the caption: “Good times, memories, random things on my phone and the ones I love.. #midweekupdate.” Thompson also made an appearance in Ora’s Instagram post.

Ora and Waititi also attended the RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under premiere together in Sydney.

“They’ve been a couple since early March but kept things low key. However, all their friends know about the relationship—they’re really into each other,” a source told The Sun at the time.
