Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom split after less than a year
Singer Katy Perry and her actor boyfriend Orlando Bloom have parted ways after a little over a year of dating.
According to their representatives the couple are taking time off from each other, reported People magazine.
"Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time," statement from the representatives read.
The two stars were recently seen at the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday after weeks of jet-setting travels apart.
In the party the duo did pose together and cozied up for the camera, but according to a source they did not have much interaction aside from posing for the photo together and mainly mingled with their own friends.
"Katy did not spend much time with Orlando. They got together for a photo, but that was about it," the source said.
The pair began dating in early 2016 and Bloom, 40, celebrated Perry's 32nd birthday back in October at the singer's 1950s-themed bash. They even went all out for Halloween with the singer transforming herself into Hillary Clinton while Bloom dressed up as a cartoonish Donald Trump.
The reports of them planning to get engaged were also doing the rounds before they decided to part ways. Orlando Bloom has recently been pictured looking very close to the daughter of the Global Green President, Erin McCabe, just six days before announcing he has split from his popstar girlfriend.
