Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are not "secretly engaged," despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We're told the story, featured is one of this week's tabloids, is not true.
According to Life & Style, Perry and Bloom got "secretly engaged" a month ago. The magazine alleges, "Bloom got down on one knee and asked Katy Perry to marry him during a romantic getaway to Greece in September." The outlet contends their split in early 2017 was what the actor needed to realize he wants to spend the rest of his life with Perry.
A so-called "source" tells the tabloid, "Being apart from Katy was a huge wake-up call for Orlando." While Perry traveled the world with her "Witness: The Tour" and he performed in the play Killer Joe on the West End in London, Bloom "realize[d] that she's 'the one,'" maintains the magazine's tipster. Now that they're on "the same page," insists the outlet's insider, "Katy and Orlando don't want to wait around to get married."
While the tabloid claims Perry and Bloom are "engaged," its article offers absolutely no details or proof that the movie star popped the question to the singer. All the magazine alleges is that the purported proposal took place in Greece in September. It doesn't know on what date or specifically where in the Mediterranean country Bloom supposedly asked Perry for her hand in marriage. There's no mention even of an engagement ring. Of course, a legitimate "source" would have information about all of that.
It's true the reconciled couple is in a good place and were together in Greece. And, as widely reported, Bloom was proudly by Perry's side when she was honored by amfAR last Thursday in Los Angeles. Additionally, the generally reliable People recently claimed Bloom is "ready to settle down" with Perry. But they are 100 percent not engaged right now. A rep for Perry exclusively tells Gossip Cop the tabloid's story is not true, and a Bloom confidante also assures us the engagement claim is wrong.
Oddly, the tabloid doesn't say a word about its previous report that falsely maintained Perry and Bloom got engaged in Tokyo in April. That story similarly lacked any supporting evidence. The magazine also doesn't explain how it asserted in July that Perry and Bloom were "on the rocks," yet two months later supposedly got engaged.
Much like the aforementioned article, the latest from Life & Style is based on anonymous and unreliable sources. Conversely, as noted above, Perry's rep went on the record to exclusively tell Gossip Cop the tabloid's tale about her and Bloom being "secretly engaged" is absolutely "not true." Since the spokesperson vocally shot down the magazine's report, and a mutual friend of ours and Bloom's also threw water on the proposal piece, Gossip Cop is giving the repeatedly wrong publication's new story a zero out of 10 on our fact-or-fiction meter.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
