Pop princess Katy Perry has broken up with Orlando Bloom as a joint statement is released announcing their split after one year of dating. Did you see it coming? The showbiz couple were lasted pictured together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party. But the not-so-happy couple has said that they are taking “respectful, loving space at this time.”
Their full statement to US Weekly states: “Before rumours or falsification get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando, 40, and Katy, 32, are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”
Fans are shocked by the revelation after getting the impression that things were running smoothly between the pair. Just last weekend, they spent time together at the Oscars backstage. Katy even threw a lavish 40th birthday party for Orlando back in January, plus she organised for his own mother Sonia, to make a surprise appearance.
Katy and Orlando first started dating last year and confirmed the rumours by attending the Golden Globes together in Los Angeles. That same night, the two were spotted kissing at an Adele concert. Since then, the pair has travelled the world together, visited sick children in fancy dress and paddle boarded during romantic holidays to Italy.
Back in November 2016, rumours circulated that the pair were engaged as Katy Perry was spotted out with an engagement ring.
Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom, previously told People Magazine that he sees a future with Katy Perry, including marriage and kids. This could get awkward! He told them: “[We’re] not engaged yet, but seem to be heading that way.” A friend of Orlando even says: “[He] always gushes about Katy and thinks she is amazing in a million ways. He would love to settle down with Katy and have more kids. He hasn’t been this serious about a girl since Miranda.”
Maybe Orlando liked Katy Perry’s dog Butters more than her, as he recently posted a selfie with the caption ‘a mighty heart’. Aww- what a cute couple! Orlando and Katy’s dog, together.
Orlando Bloom was also pictured at the Global Green pre-Oscars party last Wednesday, getting cozy with a brunette hospitality worker, named Erin McCabe, flirting through the whole evening, so let’s just say that Orlando isn’t slowing down in finding a new love interest, before and after Katy Perry.
Orlando Bloom was previously married to Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr from 2010 to 2013. They have one 6-year-old child together, named Flynn.
The ‘Rise’ singer has previously dated other Hollywood A-listers such as John Mayer and rapper Travie McCoy. She was then married to Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012. The breakdown of her marriage to Russell had really taken a toll on her emotionally. A friend of Perry’s said: “Katy’s divorce from Russell [Brand] really messed her up emotionally.”
But, can they really blame Russell Brand for her break up with Orlando Bloom? Hmmm. Seemingly, there’s a pattern of break-ups with Katy Perry, isn’t there?
Even though, Katy and Orlando have broken up, they are apparently still very good friends. Could they reunite in the future?
Either way, we think that a number one single from Katy Perry with a classic “break up” song, will soon be approaching us.
Hold onto your seats, Katy Perry’s love life is a bit of a bumpy ride!
