Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Top Goss! -

Apri­vate de­bate over Katy Perry’s for­tune is prov­ing to be the ma­jor stum­bling block from stop­ping the singer an­nounc­ing she’s of­fi­cially en­gaged to Or­lando Bloom.

Woman’s Day can re­veal delays in pre-nup­tial ne­go­ti­a­tions to pro­tect the 34-year-old pop diva’s $350 mil­lion for­tune – and her bruised ego – is driv­ing a rift be­tween the pre­vi­ously bliss­fully happy cou­ple.

Still sting­ing from her mar­riage break­down to Bri­tish fun­ny­man Rus­sell Brand, 43, Katy’s said to be en­forc­ing a $2 mil­lion cheat­ing fine for her next hus­band. What’s more, she’s ap­par­ently adding a $1 mil­lion penalty if he leaves her within the first year of mar­riage.

A source tells us Or­lando – whose net worth is 10 times less at $35 mil­lion – is “hurt” and “bewil­dered” by the songstress’ sud­den busi­ness-like de­meanour and ice-cold clauses.

“Un­til this point, Or­lando and Katy were in an un­touch­able bub­ble of hap­pi­ness,” says the in­sider.

“But Katy’s sud­den about­face has left a rift be­tween them. While they’re still iron­ing out their dif­fer­ences, Orly’s hes­i­tant to an­nounce their en­gage­ment.”

Katy’s de­mands have caught Or­lando off-guard, says an in­sider.
