What is with Hollywood and the endless heart break? Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom became the latest couple to bite the dust just 48 hours after they were pictured together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party.

Rather than ghosting each other, however, a statement from the couple told fans that they were instead giving each other “respectful, loving space”.

It read: “Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”

The couple apparently started dating after the Golden Globes this time last year. They were plagued with break-up rumours in November after Bloom reportedly got cold feet over the prospect of yet another marriage and yet more children.

Now, the Evening Standard claims that a source close to Perry confirmed that she initiated the “respectful, loving space”, not Bloom. Perhaps she was having flash-backs from being married to Russell Brand all those years ago.

Still, she’ll always have that naked paddle board memory to see her through the dark times. And so will we.
