Exciting news from the land of love: Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are very much an item.
After sparking rumours of a romance following a Golden Globes after-party in January and many other date nights, Perry and Bloom are officially dating, E! News has confirmed.
The couple happily missed out on the 88th Academy Awards that took place in Los Angeles and opted for a sun-soaked break in Hawaii. The pop star and the English actor stayed at a private house and spent a few days doing super couple-y activities like going on a helicopter ride, hiking with friends at the Napali Coast State Park in Kauai before cozying up for a romantic evening date at Barracuda restaurant.
The “Roar” crooner seemed to have captured all of Bloom’s attention as he placed a protective arm around Perry while looking dreamily at her face. The singer was dressed in a vintage-style maxi dress, giving off bohemian vibes, while her hair was tied into a braid across her head.
Bloom also opted for a heavy patterned top with his green Hawaiian collared shirt, a perfect choice since they were in Hawaii, and jeans. Their outfits were a stark contrast than the ones they were spotted in during their hike the day before.
Perry was certainly enjoying the breathtaking scenery in Hawaii. What’s not to enjoy, especially when you have a sexy hunk by your side? The pop singer was seen wearing a hot pink bikini top with a pair of beach shorts while a shirtless Bloom showed off his chiselled abs, proving why he’s Perry’s “Teenage Dream”.
“They looked very loved up and really into each other. They were comfortable letting everyone see them as a couple,” said an onlooker who saw the lovebirds holding hands while taking a sweet stroll during their tropical exploration. According to Hollywood Life, Hawaii has always been one of Perry’s preferred places to visit, so it’s a big deal that she brought him to her favourite holiday spot.
This is the first time that the lovebirds have been photographed engaging in PDA. Their recent holiday pictures show that the pair are clearly comfortable in each other’s company. Perry, 31, has also reported met the 39-year-old actor’s son, Flynn.
Both Hollywood stars are no stranger to high-profile relationships. Perry was previously married British comedian Russell Brand, and has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with John Mayer. Meanwhile, Bloom has a 5-year-old boy with ex-wife and Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr.
