Ruh roh Rita Ora!
Apparently, RiRi was being considered for a position in the flick, but the diamond encrusted singer just couldn't work filming into her extremely busy schedule…
And when Rita auditioned for the part, the film execs apparently LOVED her!
"Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in 'Battleship'. But schedules didn't work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude."
Ooo but this is just ANOTHER example of how Rita could be seen as trying to steal RiRi's style!
Whispers are floating about that Rihanna is getting a tad irritated by the British singer imitating her signature looks, moves, and sound…
Ah well, we just can't wait to see Mz. Ora totally bring her passionate fury to the Fast & Furious franchise!
