X Factor star Rita Ora's romance with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker may have only just been confirmed, but it seems the pair have now split.

According to the Daily Star, the two stars have already decided to call it quits thanks to "bad timing" and the long distance between them putting pressure on their relationship.

After falling victim to a plane crash seven years ago, Travis no longer likes flying. As a result, he is forced to stay in the US, meaning spending time with Rita can prove tricky.

While Rita is based in the UK, she is constantly travelling due to the nature of her work. And along with being on the road, in the next few months, Rita will need to be in London thanks to her X Factor commitments for the competition's live shows.

A source told the paper: "There's no doubt Rita and Travis have clicked. It's just bad timing and Rita totally understands with all of Travis' commitments and why he can't travel to the UK.

"They may try to pick up where they left off next year!"

News of the couples split comes nearly two weeks after a rep for Travis confirmed he and Rita were dating. Although, there was no talk of how serious their relationship was.

The pair first met back in September, after being introduced at a celebrity basketball match in LA. Us Weekly had reported it was 'Body On Me' singer Rita that had made the first move, supposedly seeking out Travis and passing on her details.

They claimed: "Rita and Travis have been together every day since."

Reveal has contacted a rep for Rita for comment.
