Rita Ora previously filed a lawsuit to get out of her contract with Jay-Zs Roc Nation, after accusing them of neglecting her in favour for other artists.

Now shes spoken out about leaving the label in 2016, claiming they discriminated against her because she is female.

The 27-year-old has insisted that the label was amicable in their split, when they counter-sued and then settled the case, but the singer believes she would have had a better outcome if she was a man.

She said: I want to find the right word here, and maybe this is my interpretation, but I do feel I got discriminated against because I was a woman.
