London: Singer Rita Ora is reportedly dating David Beckham`s best friend and sports agent Dave Gardner.

The 22-year-old `RIP` hitmaker, who previously dated US reality TV star Rob Kardashian, is said to have enjoyed a string of dates with Gardner after they first met late last year, then really hit it off when they ran into one another at a party in February, reported Contactmusic.

"Rita and Dave seem to really like each other. She`s told pals she could fall for him. They were very flirty the first time they met and this time the chemistry was electric," a source said.

Ora and Gardner, who has a five-year-old son, Grey, with ex-wife Davinia Taylor, have been pictured out shopping together, as well as seen at London nightspots.

"Dave is a breath of fresh air for Rita. He`s incredibly stable and shuns the limelight. Rita`s friends are hoping this could be the first love she`s been hoping for, wile Dave`s friends say they haven`t seen him like this since Davinia. Now that Rita`s in LA, she`s counting down the days before she can come to the UK and see Dave again," the source added.
