Kim Kardashian West reportedly refused to sit next to Rita Ora at the MTV VMAs because she still blames the singer for her messy split from her brother Rob Kardashian in 2012.
The 33-year-old star is said to have asked producers to find her a different seat at the event last week when she discovered her chair was next to the 'I Will Never Let You Down' hitmaker's because she still blames the singer for her messy split from Kim's brother Rob Kardashian in 2012.
Sources told TMZ that while Kim wasn't a ''diva'' about the request, she wasn't interested in speaking to the 23-year-old star at the Californian ceremony, and fortunately for the raven-haired beauty she was re-seated next to her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Rob and Rita infamously endured an ugly split two years ago when the sock designer took to the social networking site to allege the pop star cheated on him with 20 men.
He wrote: ''She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together... But I mean 20?!!!! (sic)''
Rita went on to date Calvin Harris but the pair recently split after a year of dating and that also got messy when she revealed in an interview that he had refused her permission to sing her latest single, 'I Will Never Let You Down', which he wrote and produced, at the Teen Choice Awards in August.
Following the revelation, Calvin hit back at Rita, tweeting: ''You'll only know 1 side of the story RE Teen choice awards because I choose not to talk to the papers about every aspect of my personal life (sic)''
Prior to dating Rita, Rob was in a two-year relationship with Adrienne Bailon but following their split the singer claimed their romance had hindered her career.
This did not sit well with Kim who later lashed out at the 30-year-old beauty for her comments, but they have now buried the hatchet.
Asked if she would prefer to have Adrienne or Rita as a sister-in-law, she told 'Watch What Happens Live' last month: ''I would say Adrienne Bailon because she was in our lives for a long time and I know she's a really sweet girl, she has good intentions and she has a good heart.''
