Orlando Bloom Opens Up About “Challenging” Relationship With Katy Perry
Orlando Bloom has admitted he and partner Katy Perry are in “two very different pools” when it comes to their creativity as a couple.
The Pirates of the Caribbean The 46-year-old star has been dating the 38-year-old “California Girls” singer since 2016. They got engaged in 2019 but have yet to get married.
Speak with Flaunt Magazine for its latest issue, Bloom said the couple sometimes “struggles” with their “emotions and creativity,” and at times their relationship can be “really, really challenging.”
He called: “Her pool isn’t a pool that I necessarily understand, and I don’t think mine is a pool that she necessarily understands.
“Sometimes things are really, really, really challenging. i won’t lie We definitely struggle with our emotions and our creativity, [but] I think we both realize how blessed we are to be uniquely connected in the way we were then and there’s definitely never a dull moment.
Bloom and Perry share their two-year-old daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. Perry was pregnant during the 2020 US Covid-19 lockdown and the couple have been quarantining in a two bedroom home.
The carnival series star also reflected on how becoming a father gave him an “invisible perspective” as he watched mothers flee Ukraine after Russia waged war on the country.
Bloom, who has been a Unicef representative for years, traveled to the Ukrainian border and saw women with children his own daughter’s age trying to get out of the war zone.
“It’s a perspective you can’t lose sight of,” he said. “You’re just like, ‘Wait, what? What are you going to do?’ You can’t fathom it. It leaves an imprint in your soul and heart that you hold on to, and then you navigate through the moment that’s right in front of you.
“It forces you to take a 50,000-foot view and look at everything and say, ‘What else can we do there?'”
Last year, the actor spent some time in Moldova, where he met and supported refugees from Ukraine fleeing the war.
On his Instagram account, he posted a photo of himself meeting a mother of three who evacuated herself and her children. Bloom wrote in the caption: “Today at the border I met a mother and her three children who fled Ukraine last night after their neighbor’s house was bombed.
“They don’t know where they’re going next but Mum just wants her kids to be safe. Today is a month since the start of the war and thousands of families are still crossing the border into Moldova every day. The services established by UNICEF and partners at the borders are vital for children and families in need of protection.”
Bloom is also a father to his six-year-old son Flynn, whom he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr. The couple were married from 2010 to 2013.
Perry was also married once before, to comedian Russell Brand from 2010 to 2012.
