US$50,000 DATE NIGHT KATY PERRY BUYS BACK ORLANDO BLOOM
She seemed to be ok with it when a fan, Laura, bid US$20,000 for a date with her boyfriend Orlando Bloom but then in a surprise twist, Katy Perry fought back.
The two California natives and philanthropists were participating in the One Love charity show in aid of those affected by the recent fires in the American state, with the Lord of the Rings lead offering up a lunch at the starry event.
The Roar singer, who sang three songs at the benefit, emceed the bidding process as Orlando’s lot came up, said: “So, I just wanted to start and say that he’s going to do a motorcycle ride… and then you can have lunch. That also means, that when you are on the motorcycle with him, you’re holding him in a way that I am not excited about!”
The expert salesman, 34, added: “You’re holding his pecs and his six-pack! And it’s so glorious!”
As the price reached a crescendo and the bidding stopped, Katy threw down her ace: “I’m sorry, I’m buying it for US$50,000.”
The two stars first started dating in 2016, after being spotted together at a Golden Globes after-party. Their split in 2017 was shortlived as they got together again that New Year, celebrating the incoming 2018 in the Maldives.
