IN TOUCH Weekly reported exclusively yesterday that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are done. I don’t love IN TOUCH as a source but what’s interesting is that it’s been a full 24 hours and, so far, none of the legitimate celebrity outlets, like E! News or PEOPLE or US Weekly or Entertainment Tonight or Access Hollywood have come out to kill or corroborate the story. Which means they’re all trying to find out from their sources whether or not it’s true.
Here’s Orly in Malibu yesterday. He and Katy haven’t been seen together since Halloween, so about three weeks ago. Since then, well, a lot has changed. As in an election. Katy was one of Hillary Clinton’s most vocal supporters. She took it hard. And everything on her social media after November 8 has been about taking action, staying focused, and continuing to advocate for the issues that matter to her, most importantly women’s reproductive health.
It's time to turn words into action❗️There are so many steps to take, but my first vow is to support organizations that may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government. I am making a public donation to Planned Parenthood for the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles, CA to educate myself on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing. I had no idea how things worked down there, and had no idea how to make a plan for them. Planned Parenthood educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family. Since then, I have been able to focus wholeheartedly on bringing messages of strength and becoming a voice for others. Without this education, I may have had a different life path. That is just my experience, but I know Planned Parenthood's broader range of services can sometimes be the only medical support low-income families ever see. I know what it's like to need help. I came from a lower- to middle-class family and never grew up with the option of health insurance. I remember having 13 cavities as a teenager, and the best option my parents could come up with was to try and take me to Mexico because we couldn't afford anything in California. I am grateful for and stand in support of Planned Parenthood for giving Katheryn Hudson the knowledge to plan, and for continuing to be a haven for women to learn all options for their future. Now, more than ever, we all need to protect and create safe places for each other. I hope I can help inspire you to make a gift as well, and become a member and an ally.

So, if Katy and Orly have indeed broken up, it would have happened some time after Halloween, and in and around the time of the election. Did political upheaval result in personal upheaval? According to IN TOUCH, Katy wanted to get more serious, and Orlando wasn’t ready for it. Other sources told the magazine that "they were on different life paths and as much as she likes him, it's time to move on”.
If the split is true, I’m more inclined to believe it was the “different life paths”. Orly really, really enjoys a certain lifestyle. Wouldn’t surprise me if she was over it.
