Katy Perry “blames” Taylor Swift for Orlando Bloom’s “hookup” with Selena Gomez? That’s the wildly off-base claim from a webloid on Tuesday. Gossip Cop can debunk the story.

According to RadarOnline, the “shocking reason” Perry “forgave” Bloom for his “steamy Vegas makeout session” with Gomez is because she “blames Taylor Swift” for the supposed dalliance. The nonsensical, and provably false, story says, “Perry continues to be nonplussed by the fact that Bloom was caught kissing Gomez in a Las Vegas nightclub just one week ago.”

“Perry does not believe that Bloom betrayed her with Gomez — even though there are numerous photos of the two kissing in a Las Vegas nightclub,” writes the site. It then quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “Katy is putting the blame for this on Taylor Swift. She said that Selena has wanted her man forever.” And Perry allegedly believes that Gomez “somehow being friends” with her “frenemy” Swift “inspired her to make her move.”

To recap: The webloid is claiming that even though Bloom was “making out” with Gomez, they’re still together because Perry believes Swift put Gomez up to it. This is the same ridiculous absurdity spewed by the clueless Wendy Williams last week, and it’s still far from plausible. RadarOnline is just trying to come up with an explanation (and quite the convoluted one at that) for why Perry is still with Bloom if he supposedly cheated.

Well, here’s the real reason they’re still together: There was no cheating. Not a single photo, despite the outlet’s sensationalism, has shown Bloom and Gomez actually “kissing.” She and Perry even hit back at such “dumb conspiracy” claims days ago. And Perry is not “blaming” Swift for Bloom and Gomez’s “hookup” because there was no “hookup” in the first place.
