Yet on Tuesday morning, the pop star expertly dodged questions about her love life during an appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

At the end of the interview, radio host Kyle Sandilands asked Rita, “ I know you don’t want to talk too much about this stuff, but are you able to get lovers in and out of your joint or do you find it difficult? ‘

After a long hiatus, the Body On Me singer responded intently, “ I think for me I’m just focusing on fitness to be honest. ”

“It’s fantastic, I can read between the lines,” Kyle replied jokingly.

Rita split from French director Romain Gavras earlier this year.

Taika is believed to have separated from his wife, Chelsea Winstanley, in 2018 after seven years of marriage. They share two daughters, Te Hinekāhu, eight, and Matewa Kiritapu, five.

Taika is currently directing the sequel to Thor and last year won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for Jojo Rabbit.
