The singer, 24, was criticised after releasing her new single, ‘Body on Me’, which features Brown, last week. Ora has defended him in the past as “strong, powerful, and someone that is important to me personally and professionally” and said she “loved him on different levels”.
"I see how he treats his people and he's a good person with a good heart and a lovely family,” Ora told The Sun in June. "It's really nice that we finally got together because, regardless of what's happened, the song is just amazing.”
Ora's decision to defend Brown and promote their single on her Twitter page saw many accuse her of abandoning her feminist values and of condoning domestic vicolence.
Brown was sentenced to five years probation for the 2009 attack on Rihanna where he hit, choked and bit the singer in a car. His career slumped after this incident but Brown has gradually rebuilt himself, releasing five albums in the following six years.
The Independent has contacted representatives for Ora and Brown for comment.
