WHEN SINGER ED SHEERAN launched into his hit “The Shape of You” at his Aug. 12 Los An­ge­les con­cert, only one thing could dis­tract fans from their mu­sic idol—watching singer Katy Perry cosy up to her ex Or­lando Bloom at the Sta­ples Cen­ter gig.

Fans tweeted they’d seen the cou­ple, who split in Fe­bru­ary af­ter 10 months of dat­ing, hold­ing hands back­stage and ex­it­ing the con­cert to­gether. One eye­wit­ness re­port­edly told E! News that Perry, 32, and Bloom, 40, were act­ing like a ro­man­tic cou­ple. “They

def­i­nitely seemed like they’re back to­gether,” the in­sider said. “They cud­dled most of the night. She sat on his lap most of the night and shared kisses.”

A source told WHO the cou­ple are still pals. “[Or­lando] and Katy have been in touch since they broke up,” the source said. “They ended things as friends. They con­tinue to be friends.” Good friends, it would seem. Af­ter the con­cert, the pair—who both wore sim­i­lar black base­ball-style hats—left to­gether, with Perry wrap­ping her arms around Bloom as they set off on his mo­tor­cy­cle.

Although the cou­ple had not been seen cosy­ing up re­cently, their close­ness is no great sur­prise. As Perry tweeted soon af­ter their split: “How about a new way of think­ing for 2017? U can still be friends & love ur for­mer part­ners. No-one’s a vic­tim or a vil­lain.”

Perry and Bloom out­side the Sta­ples Cen­ter on Aug. 12. In Fe­bru­ary the cou­ple said they were “tak­ing re­spect­ful, lov­ing space” from each other.

A source told WHO the cou­ple “aren’t back to­gether, but they have his­tory and are open to see­ing what hap­pens.”

Bloom—who has 6-year-old son Flynn with ex Mi­randa Kerr— first dated Perry in Jan­uary 2016. The Pi­rates of the Caribbean ac­tor was pre­pared with a spare mo­tor­bike hel­met. Sains­bury (out­side court on Aug. 9) “is good,” lawyer Or­lando Her­ran tells WHO. “Her fam­ily came for the hear­ing.”
