What’s Going On with Orlando Bloom?

Since he first offered Frodo his bow in The Lord of the Rings, Orlando Bloom has been the “teenage dream” for many fans of the glorious Elf from Mirkwood. He later gained even more fans starring alongside Johnny Depp as blacksmith turned pirate Will Turner throughout the Pirates of the Caribbean films. After starring in two of the biggest trilogies of all time, Bloom went on to star in a few period pieces such as Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven and Troy. He later took a break from the Hollywood scene to star in several independent films and even do a rendition of Romeo and Juliet on Broadway.

Personal Life

Things seemed to be going really well for the actor. He married Victoria Secret’s model Miranda Kerr on July 22, 2010 and the couple was seen everywhere together. They had a son, Flynn Christopher Bloom who was born on January 6, 2011. The couple was married for only three short years until they divorced in 2013. Miranda is now reportedly in a serious relationship with Evan Spiegel, a billionaire and co-founder of Spapchat. And all interviews say that Orlando and Miranda are on good terms with each other after the split for the sake of their son.

But it seems like Orlando may not be taking the break up as well as everyone thinks.

The Bieber Incident

There was the incident on the Island of Ibiza back in 2014 when news came out that Justin Bieber had allegedly become friends with Kerr before she and Bloom had officially divorced. He later added more fuel to the fire by posting a picture of Miranda in a bikini on Instagram. When Bloom confronted Bieber, the actor threw a bunch at him, which caused the other patrons at the restaurant they were at to clap and cheer.

Then there were images appearing online of Orlando chatting (or so we think) with Bieber’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, in the pictures Bloom looks shocked that the two of them were “caught” together. It could have been a friendly encounter or a way to retaliate against Bieber’s behavior.

Tamagotchis and Nudie Shots

But life goes on and now Orlando has found love once again with pop singer Katy Perry. What seems to have started out as a whirlwind romance is slowly turning into something that could end up being very serious for the pair. The two attended the MET Gala ball earlier this year wearing matching Tamagotchis (yes the virtual pets from the 90s). While that all seems normal for Perry, it is a bit out of character for Orlando. However, love makes you do crazy things.

Like…paddleboarding nude on their recent vacation in Italy. While Katy remained fully clothed in a cute bikini, Orlando decided to spend most of his time on the beach in the nude. Of course, the majority of his fanbase is not complaining however it still seems a bit unusual along with the constant PDA moments that they shared together while out in the water. It was as if they wanted to be photographed or were putting on a show for the paparazzi? The recent rumors about Miranda getting engaged to her billionaire boyfriend wouldn’t have anything to do with these pics would they?

Nevertheless, Orlandaty? Katlando? Seem to be very happy together so maybe it’s just the fact that he is caught up in a brand new, loving relationship that is causing Orlando to do strange things. I guess we’ll just have to keep an eye out for new and er…interesting photographs to make their way online.
