Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom seemed like the perfect couple. They first met at the 2016 Oscars earlier this year and were on a whirlwind romance ever since. Katy and Orlando even made headlines when the Lord of the Rings actor infamously got on a paddleboard nude on his Italian beach getaway with the pop star.
It’s all over now. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have gone their separate ways, according to reports. The couple called it quits after 10 months of dating, In Touch Weekly was the first to report the shocking news. Perry, 32, and Bloom, 39, have taken the news well, but there seems to be a simple misunderstanding as to why the relationship ended. The couple seems to have confused their own friends, who have no clue why they split.
“Not long after Halloween, Orlando confessed to pals that he’d decided to end their relationship. He claimed that he’s just not ready to get married and have babies,” says an inside source.
Meanwhile, other sources close to Katy claim she was the one who decided to end their relationship.
“She said they were on different life paths and as much as she likes him, it’s time to move on,” a second source added.
Perry has since kept her relationship with Bloom private. In an interview with WWD, Perry bemoaned about driving to see her boyfriend in Malibu.
“My boyfriend lives in Malibu and getting used to that [drive] was like, ‘Are you kidding me? What kind of life is this?’ There’s no pop-over and I never really get used to Malibu ’cause it’s halfway to Santa Barbara, so I’m always just going to Santa Barbara then. I get the whole coming to L.A. and living by the beach thing. But it’s really … it’s so far, nobody [who lives in town] is going to come see you.”
Bloom has a 5-year-old son Flynn with ex-wife Miranda Kerr. The pair separated in 2013. Before dating Bloom, Perry ended her on-and-off relationship with John Mayer after New Year’s Eve 2015. The couple started their hot and cold relationship back in 2012. Perry was also married to comedian Russell Brand on Oct. 23, 2010. The pair finalized their divorce on July 14, 2012, that same year she started dating Mayer.
The “Rise” singer just celebrated her 32nd second birthday with a 1950s-inspired theme in the later part of October. According to People, the bash included an Elvis impersonator, a Marilyn Monroe lookalike, a game of Twister, her BFF Kate Hudson, and Bloom. In her latest Instagram post, Perry thanked CoverGirl for making her special night happen.
She also shared one video of Bloom shooting hoops at the event, which was called Hudson High. Before she became international pop superstar Katy Perry, she was known as a Christian rock singer named Katy Hudson. Other guests at the event include Jessica Chastain, who also shared some photos from the bash.
Perry spent her actual birthday – Oct. 25 – voting for Hillary Clinton. In an Instagram video, she revealed it was the “best birthday present” that she ever gave herself. On Halloween, Perry and Bloom dressed up as Bill and Hillary Clinton. They quickly became real-life relationship goals.
Perry even reportedly delayed the release of her next album so she can write songs about Clinton’s win in the U.S. election, but, of course, that did not happen. Perry’s fans may have to look forward to breakup songs instead.
