Ellie Goulding, who celebrated her 28th birthday on 30 December, received a warm wish from Rita Ora through her Instagram account.
The "Fifty Shades of Grey" star posted a photo of herself with the "Your Song" singer, in which the celebrities are about to share a smooch.
While the image with the caption "Happy Birthday Ellie Goulding" sparked many rumours about their relationship, it did not really affect Goulding's boyfriend Dougie Poynter, according to Daily Mail.
He also posted a picture of his lady love with the caption, "Happy birthday to my very lovely and special lady."
Meanwhile, Goulding shared a video of her birthday celebration on Instagram along with one of her childhood photos.
Poynter and the "Lights" singer are in relationship from the beginning of 2014 and have been updating their fans about their union.
However, some of Goulding and Ora fans got angry over the bi-sexual rumours that has been doing the rounds ever since the "R.I.P" singer shared the photo on Instagram. They expressed their wrath over the speculations on the social media platform.
Here are few of the comments:
If anything she is bisexual, pansexual, or polysexual. And there is nothing nasty about this pic or any implications it may have. You're entitled to your own opinions, but there's no need to be rude or homophobic.
why is everyone hating on them! just leave them alone.
