Zayn Malik is crushing hard on Rita Ora but the “X Factor” judge doesn’t want anything to do with him. At least not for now.

Rita had no words and silence took over when she was asked about the One Direction star while playing a game with Capital FM. Then she said:

“Zayn, he’s gorgeous, but, I just…That can’t happen,” Rita told Capital FM.

Both Zayn and Rita are currently single and were spotted at a West Hollywood Japanese eating joint, KOI. Although they tried to keep it as low profile and casual as possible, the fact remains the two were on a secret dinner date.

“They were both at a dinner organised by a member of their management team. There was a group of artists and staff from Turn First at the get together.There is nothing going on between Rita and Zayn,” a source told the Daily Mail.

While Rita already clarified she won’t be dating Zayn, the former One Directioner revealed that he would date the singer in a “heartbeat”.

“Zayn would date Rita in a heartbeat,” an insider told Hollywood Life.

“He’s always had a crush on her and thinks she’s super sexy. He would also love to collaborate with her on a song. He likes that Rita is bold and speaks her mind. They have the same management team, but that won’t stop Zayn from pursuing her romantically.”

Aside from the “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress, Zayn is also linked to Indian model Neelam Gill.

“The two met after running into each other at a recording studio in London, where Zayn was working on his solo music with Naughty Boy, and Neelam was hanging out with her friends Krept & Konan, who were also doing some recording at the time,” Hollywood Life wrote.

After leaving One Direction, Zayn broke up with his girlfriend, Little Mix singer, Perrie Edwards.

Now a solo artist, Zayn is expected to release his own music soon.
