We’re friends: Bloom after split from Perry
English actor Orlando Bloom’s (right) love life has been the subject of public scrutiny for some time, but the actor has proven he can handle break-ups with grace. Bloom, 40, recently said he and his ex, singer Katy Perry (above), remain on good terms.
“We’re friends, it’s good. We’re all grown up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares about what I’m up to. Nor should they. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that (breakups) don’t have to be about hate,” he said.
Bloom began dating Perry shortly in January 2016. However, the couple confirmed their split in March 2017. This is not the first time when Bloom has asked for privacy in his personal life. He had similar thoughts when he split from former wife and supermodel Miranda Kerr in 2013. “With Miranda, there was a sense that I don’t want my son to go back through the internet where people made up lies. Miranda and I have a remarkable relationship. We co-parent really well,” said Bloom.
