In a new biography about Rita Ora, it's revealed that the pop star was in a sexual relationship with a 26-year-old when she was just 14. New excerpts from what's being billed as her "definitive biography,"Hot Right Now, say she met her older boyfriend while still a drama student at London's Sylvia Young Theatre School. "It's child abuse, really, isn't it?" says Ora in quotes included in the bio from previous interviews the singer has given.

But in subsequent interviews included in the book, Ora goes on to deny that she was really abused, saying instead that it was "a boost to her confidence" at the time. "I was almost obsessed with having a man feel like he wants me," she explained back in 2013 in an interview with Lifetime TV. "It made me feel great and I didn't care what he did or how old he was. I wanted it. It's crazy," later adding that, "I don't want to say that I suffered it, because I wanted it...I don't want people to think I was abused as a kid but I was definitely more mature than I should have been at 14."

With the biography excerpts out and several tabloids running headlines that call Ora's experience sexual abuse and "grooming" at a young age, the singer's camp has yet to follow-up for comment.
