Dumped by Orlando Orlando Bloom Katy Perry
Katy’s Heartbreak ends things with — inside their painful breakup
They didn’t seem like a couple on the verge of breaking up. Katy Perry and boyfriend Orlando Bloom went all out for Kate Hudson’s annual Halloween party on Oct. 28. She donned prosthetics to transform into Hillary Clinton, while he dressed up like Donald Trump. But just one week later, the couple were spotted leaving Philadelphia’s Vedge restaurant looking somber. “They couldn’t hide their problems any longer,” a source tells In Touch. “They put up a good front when they showed up to Kate’s party, but behind the scenes they have been fighting for weeks. They both want different things.”
Now it’s over. Ten months after a flirtatious meeting at a Golden Globes afterparty ignited a passionate romance, the pop star, 32, and the actor, 39, have called it quits. “Not long after Halloween, Orlando confessed to pals that he’d decided to end their relationship,” says the source. “He claimed that he’s just not ready to get married and have babies.” But a friend of Katy’s insists the singer’s the one who did the dumping: “She said they were on different life paths and as much as she likes him, it’s time to move on.” Either way, Katy — who canceled a Nov. 11 performance in China citing “a family emergency” and was spotted out in LA alone on Nov. 17, the same day Orlando turned up alone at hot spot Craig’s restaurant — is devastated. “She’s at her lowest point right now,” says a Katy insider. “She thought this was the real deal. She’s heartbroken.”
She wanted too much, too soon. The two had been planning to spend Thanksgiving with her parents, says a friend of Orlando’s, then head to Europe to visit with his parents before making their way to Paris for a romantic getaway. But Katy is “starting to hear her biological clock tick,”
After barely a year of dating and just 14 months of marriage, British comedian Russell Brand, 41, told Katy via a text message on New Year’s Eve 2011 that he was filing for divorce. While Katy was dating producer Diplo, 38, in 2014, the Grammy winner, who’s also an electronic music artist, welcomed his second child, son Lazer, with on/off girlfriend Kathryn Lockhart.
