Rita Ora has been slammed by fans after she posted a photo of herself and UFC champ Connor McGregor enjoying a "date night" together.

Attending the Fashion Awards in London overnight, the 27-year-old singer shared a snap of herself and McGregor looking cosy on Instagram and Twitter and writing, "Date night @TheNotoriousMMA".

However the photos didn't go down well with fans who soon labelled Ora as "disrespectful", especially given the MMA fighter and childhood sweetheart Dee Devlin welcomed their first baby earlier this year, after nine years together.

The Anywhere songstress has also reportedly been in a relationship with musician Andrew Watts since October 2016, according to The Sun.

"Major disrespect to his girlfriend," one social media user wrote while others added: "A little too cosy Ms Ora" and "Seriously disrespectful to his partner and mother of his child."

Even McGregor’s sparring partner, fellow MMA fighter Artem Lobov, had a dig at the singer.

"Sorry Rita, Burgers are nice but not when a man has steak at home," he said in a since deleted tweeted.

However the backlash didn't seem to phase Ora who has kept the post on Twitter but only included McGregor's own handle on the Instagram post.

Somewhat cryptically Ora also shared a cheeky tweet, writing: "That look of purely not givin a f**k... what’s goooooooood???"
