Taika Waititi and Rita Ora seemingly confirm romance by packing on the PDA in Sydney

Taika Waititi and Rita Ora have seemingly confirmed their new relationship by holding hands and cosying up in public during a day out in Sydney. 

The New Zealand filmmaker and British pop star fuelled romance rumours after Ora shared a photo showing the Thor: Ragnarok director with his arms wrapped around her. 

It was unclear if the pair were just friends, but evidence has since been mounting they've been romantically involved for some time - and the latest paparazzi snaps of the two are perhaps the strongest proof yet. 

In new pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, Waititi can be seen with a protective arm draped around Ora's shoulder as they walk down the street together.

The couple were also seen holding hands over the table while enjoying a meal, with the Mail reporting that Waititi at one stage planted a kiss on Ora's hand. 

Late last month The Sun reported that the pair had been "dating for months", keeping their relationship lowkey after they met in Sydney where Waititi is filming the much-anticipated Thor sequel and Ora is starring on The Voice Australia

"All their friends know about the relationship - they're really into each other," a source told The Sun at the time. 

The pair were previously spotted together alongside Matt Damon, Chris Hemsworth and his wife Elsa Pataky as the group exited a private jet after a trip to the Gold Coast.
