Longtime Couple Calls It Quits After They Were JUST Seen at the Oscars Together
What the heck happened?! After over a year of dating, Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom are, as the cool kids say, “taking a break.” We all know what that means. After all, Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield did the same thing before eventually calling it quits all together. (We’re still holding out hope for them, though, especially after this Academy Awards season. But we digress…)
“Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” both of their reps said in a statement to People.
While it’s not uncommon for celebrity couples to split up — heck, Orlando & Katy are both divorced from other stars — the timing is awfully strange, considering the 40-year-old Lord of the Rings actor and 32-year-old “Chained to the Rhythm” singer were just spotted together at the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday. Guess they were simply keeping up appearances. But, then again, according to one report, “Katy didn’t spend much time with Orlando” at the event. “They got together for a photo, but that was about it.”
The Oscars event was four days after OB was spotted getting cozy with a woman named Erin McCabe at the Global Green pre-Oscars party in Hollywood. Supposedly, the woman swapped her place card to sit next to the famed actor, and they chatted each other up not so innocently. Hmm…
Of course, Orlando’s known to get close to other women, despite having a girlfriend. Remember when he was spotted getting touchy-feely with Selena Gomez last year? KP chose not to believe the buzz then, but, perhaps, Erin was the last straw.
Katy Perry now has the chance to add more names to her dating timeline:
