Love could be in bloom for Katy Perry and her rumored new man, actor Orlando Bloom.
The “Roar” singer is dating the “Pirates of the Caribbean” alum, according to People.
The two have been “spending more and more time together,” a source told the outlet, and are said to be introducing each other to friends.
Rumors of the romance bubbled up in January when a close-talking Bloom, showing little regard for personal space, was photographed yapping inches from the pop vixen’s face at the Weinstein Co.-Netflix Golden Globes after-party. The two reportedly spoke at length, shared a drink and had a dance-off.
People reported that on Thursday the pair hit up his manager’s birthday party, where they hung out with fellow celebs Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman.
Then, over the weekend, the Grammy-nominated songstress reportedly accompanied Bloom and his 5-year-old son, Flynn, to a birthday party for Robert Downey Jr.'s son Exton, according to TMZ.
On Tuesday, they were both atop a list of guests expected to attend Global Green USA’s 13th annual pre-Oscar party.
Bloom, who split with supermodel Miranda Kerr in October 2013, has most recently been linked to stylist Chloe Bartoli and model Luisa Moraes. Perry has been linked on-again, off-again to singer John Mayer, whom she was last spotted with just last month.
After the purported couple’s weekend outing, E! News reported that the relationship was simply platonic. However, Us Weekly chimed in with a source saying that while Perry is having fun with Bloom, it’s just “a fun hookup thing right now” rather than a long-term romance.
Reps for the singer and the actor did not immediately respond to The Times’ requests for comment.
