We’re friends: Bloom after split from Perry

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

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.
