Miranda Kerr’s cuddles with Justin Bieber allegedly led to the demise of the Australian model’s marriage with Orlando Bloom.
The 30-year-old is believed to possess a close friendship with the 19-year-old pop icon, and reports have started to emerge that the 36-year-old British actor was so furious with their relationship that it was one of the main reasons for the end of their marriage.
An insider has told the Sunday People, “Orlando heard that there had been some flirting going on and he wasn’t exactly thrilled about it. Miranda had always claimed that she was a fan of Justin’s music. She has taught her son how to say Bieber fever but it is supposed to have caused an issue.”
Bloom and Bieber were reportedly spotted flirting and talking throughout a showbiz soiree in New York, which was also frequented by other models and celebrities.
At the same event they were also spotted hugging while she was just wearing a scantily clad green corset at a Victoria’s fashion show as part of 2012’s New York Fashion Week.
Bloom is believed to have been outraged with his wife’s growing fascination with Bieber, despite the fact that his soon to be ex-wife is 11-years-older than the singer.
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom announced their split on Friday via a statement:
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months. After six years together, they have recently decided to formalise their separation.
Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.
Rumors have since started to circulate over the reasons for their split, and people have started to speculate over the closeness of Orlando Bloom’s relationship with his Romeo and Juliet co-star, Condola Rashad.
Bloom’s own comments have added weight to this theory, with the Pirates of the Caribbean star even discussing what it’s like to kiss the actress.
He remarked, “We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on. Sometimes I’m like, I’m not letting go.”
Bloom then admitted that he has grown close to Rashad since the start of their Broadway run, and they even go for drinks together after the show.
Rashad previously admitted that she has a connection with Bloom, stating, “What’s funny is that we didn’t have to force it. We had a connection from the minute we met… a sense of comfort with each other. Which was cool. We both loved the work. And he’s such a great guy.”
