The pair separated in June and have since moved on to other people. Before the split, they worked on six songs for her upcoming album that have now been pulled altogether.
“Rita’s album has hit a bit of a road block after Calvin pulled all the songs he had worked on for the project before they split. He’d made a lot of songs for her but they’re now likely to go to other artists,” a source told UK tabloid The Sun (via Heatworld).
“Calvin wants a clean break personally and professionally. He’s already given her one massive hit so doesn’t feel he owes her.” Six new songs are affected, and record company bosses are worried she’ll have to start from scratch.
The source adds, it may have been spite, since Rita’s in a new relationship already, “[Calvin] doesn’t want to be linked with [Rita], especially now she’s in a new relationship with Rich Hilfiger.”
Previously, Calvin dumped Rita on Twitter without warning her about the announcement first. He wrote on June 6, “To address speculation – myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best.”
Rita reacted by posting, “I’ve had an incredible time with Calvin, and I will treasure the memories.”
They were together for over a year; however, with their busy schedules, they rarely saw each other. “Rita was left embarrassed when he tweeted that it was all over,” a source told The Sun UK newspaper. “She didn’t think he was going to make the announcement, so she was shocked.”
“It was Calvin’s decision to end the relationship. They had been arguing for months and had grown apart,” adds the source. “She was constantly posting snaps of her with other groups of friends… Calvin likes more privacy than Rita and he hated the extra attention that came with being her boyfriend.”
