Actor Orlando Bloom has opened up about his split from singer Katy Perry, saying he is still friends with the singer and that her bears her no ill will. “We’re friends, its good. We’re all grown up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don’t think anybody cares about what I’m up to. It’s between us. It’s better to set an example for kids and show that don’t have to be about hate,” Bloom told Elle magazine.
Bloom began dating Perry shortly after the 73rd Golden Globe Awards in January 2016. However, the couple confirmed their split in March 2017. This is not the first time when Bloom has asked for privacy in his personal life. He had similar thoughts when he split from former wife and supermodel Miranda Kerr in 2013. “With Miranda, there was a sense that I don’t want my son to go back through the internet where people made up lies. Miranda and I have a remarkable relationship. We co-parent really well,” said Bloom while talking about their 6-year-old son Flynn Christopher Bloom.
