Katy Perry is not having a "meltdown" because Orlando Bloom was photographed acting "flirty" with women on a Malibu beach, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can correct this falsehood. The singer's relationship with the actor is solid, and more importantly Bloom wasn't acting inappropriate in any manner.
According to the latest issue of Globe, Perry is feeling "tortured" because her on-again boyfriend was "caught canoodling" a "beach bunny." The supermarket tabloid alleges the singer even "flipped out" and "suffered a secret meltdown" after seeing photos of Bloom getting "flirty with beach babes" in Malibu. A so-called "insider" is quoted as telling the magazine, "Orlando may have been playing a game of cornhole with his buddies, but he was clearly checking out the hotties between tosses."
"Katy believed what she and Orlando had was special, but this must have thrown her for a loop," continues the supposed source in language that tips off he or she isn't actually an "insider." Then, after rehashing how Perry recently announced she's taking a break from music for her own "spiritual and emotional side" and "mental health," the tabloid speculates that Bloom's "latest antics could send Katy off the deep end." "Katy's taking it as a betrayal, and she's devastated," adds the ill-informed or seemingly made-up tipster.
Clearly, the singer doesn't feel betrayed or "devastated" by the benign photos in which he wasn't actually "flirty," because on Thursday Bloom was by Perry's side when she was honored in Los Angeles by amfAR. Even though they walked the gala's red carpet separately, inside the event Perry posed for several photos with Bloom, who she praised as her "anchor" in an interview about two weeks ago. Additionally, the far more reputable magazine People recently reported that Bloom may be close to proposing to Perry after the two rekindled their romance earlier this year.
It also bears mentioning the innocuous beach pictures weren't used to portray the Lord Of The Rings star being unfaithful to Perry anywhere else other than by the Globe. In the photos from the beach that day, the actor can be seen hanging out with a few pals and giving an innocent peck on the cheek to a female friend, who was playing in the sand with his son and even took several pictures of Bloom and Flynn having fun. While certain magazines and websites often publish wrong rumors about Perry and Bloom, Gossip Cop spends a lot of time investigating reports, and the latest tale about the singer having a "meltdown" over her boyfriend acting "flirty" with "beach babes" is simply tabloid fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
