A Timeline of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s Relationship
If you haven’t head, I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Orlando Bloom is officially off the market. The Lord of the Rings star proposed to long-time girlfriend Katy Perry this past Valentine’s Day, in a spectacle that is said to be “swoon-worthy.” She was shown rocking a beautiful, flower-shaped engagement ring that Bloom had customized just for her.
In honor of their new engagement and in case you’re a little behind on your celebrity gossip, here is an extended timeline of Perry and Bloom’s relationship.
This is the first time that Perrybloom is rumored, as both attended the Netflix/Weinstein Company Golden Globes after party. For those in attendance, there was no question that the two were “a thing.” Apparently, the pair had a fun dance-off that left little to the imagination about the nature of their relationship. They were even rumored to leave the event together.
