Rita Ora and Taika Waititi appeared to confirm their romance as they posed hand-in-hand together at the premiere of Suicide Squad on Monday.

The singer, 30, was all smiles as she graced the red carpet with the actor-director, 45, as they made their first public appearance together.

The pair, who have been linked since April, looked amazing for their evening outing, which comes after they shared a racy three-way kiss with actress Tessa Thompson.

The pop star wowed in an elegant plunging white dress, showing off her gym-honed physique.

Rita could not stop grinning as one hand was tightly wrapped around Taika's arm.

Meanwhile, the actor – who plays Starro in the movie – wore a dazzling grey suit with a crisp white shirt and black shoes.

Taika appeared to hype the songstress up as he pointed one finger at her, while pulling an impressed facial expression.

In May, Hollywood star Taiki stressed he did "nothing wrong" after he was spotted looking very cosy with Rita and Tessa.

The acclaimed director played down the controversial pictures after he was reportedly 'reprimanded' by Marvel executives.

When asked if he was upset by the amount of attention the photos received, the New Zealander replied: "Not really."

"I think in the world of the internet, everything goes away pretty quick."

In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, he added: "And also, 'is it that big a deal?' No, not really. I was doing nothing wrong. It's fine."

According to insiders, top bosses at Rita's record label weren't too impressed with the star's antics while spending time in Australia.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, a source who claims to have worked closely with the singer said: "They didn't like the behaviour, is what I heard."

However, a representative for Warner Music has quashed the claims, stating they couldn't wait to see her again.
