It’s been a wild ride for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. After about three years of dating on and off, the celeb couple got engaged on Valentine’s Day. The two couldn’t look happier, however, their relationship wasn’t always as picture perfect as it seems. Keep scrolling to see how it all came together.
Not ready to confirm their relationship just yet, Katy and Orlando sat at different tables at amfAR’s 23rd Cinema Against AIDS Gala. However, a source told Us Weekly that they whispered to each other throughout the night.
While vacationing in Italy, the actor was caught paddleboarding naked as Katy sat in front of him. Eventually, he spoke about the incident. “Yes, it was extremely surprising,” he told Elle UK for the magazine’s May 2017 issue. “I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen. I’ve been photographed a million times in a million ways. I have a good radar.”
They made it through their first year together and were all smiles at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. However, that changed in the following month. In March 2017, they took a break. “Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time,” their reps told Us Weekly. Two days later, Katy tweeted, “U can still b friends & love ur former partners!”
Showing no sign of reconciliation, the “Fireworks” singer got candid about her exes’ performances in bed. During a live-stream, she ranked the following exes from best to worst: John Mayer, Orlando and Diplo. That changed over the summer though. The two reunited and went to an Ed Sheeran Concert in August 2017.
The new year inspired Katy — she gave her man a very sweet and public birthday shoutout. “Happiest 42nd birthday to the kindest and cutest man I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with,” she wrote on Instagram.
Orlando popped the question on Valentine’s Day, and they both shared the same pic on their Instagram accounts. “Lifetime,” wrote Orlando. While Katy captioned the pic with, “Full Bloom.” Congrats to them both!
