It looks like British actor Orlando Bloom and US singing sensation Katy Perry are officially, um… official!
While the couple has been spotted together here and there over the last few months, stirring up speculation of a romance, news sources have gone crazy this week as a series of pics showing the couple hiking together in sporty attire hit the tabloids, confirming, they are an “official couple.” Oo-er!
“Katy likes how down to earth Orlando is,” one insider said. “They seem to be getting serious and are an official couple. She calls him her boyfriend.”
This all makes sense considering the amount of time they’ve been spending together recently. Not only did they go on a Hawaiian vacation together last week, but upon their return, they’ve been staying together in New York City.
In fact, last Tuesday night, the couple was photographed leaving a romantic dinner date at The Polo Bar in Midtown Manhattan.
Perry literally dazzled in a sparkly black dress with drop earrings and bright red lipstick, while Bloom opted for a more casual style in gray pants and a black and leather jacket.
Another onlooker said, “It looked like Katy was very comfortable being her self in front of Orlando…They were sitting close to each other, [and] Orlando was a gentleman.”
During their two-hour date, the source told E! News, “Katy was smiling during their dinner, and Orlando could not keep his eyes off her while they were eating. The way it looked seemed like they had been dating each other for sometime now. They were very relaxed.”
One interesting point, was, the duo was notably absent from the 2016 Oscars as they embarked on their tropical vaca. The insider explains, “Katy and Orlando wanted to get away on their down time so they decided to go to Hawaii. They had known reason this year to attend the Oscars or the festivities around it.”
Instead, Perry and Bloom hiked along the Napili Coast over the Oscar weekend, holding hands as they took in the views. The singer donned a pink bikini with a pair of palm tree-printed shorts while the actor opted for a pair of red swim trunks that showed off his toned abs.
The photos of their dinner date in Hawaii show Bloom with his arm wrapped tightly around the “Roar” singer, both looking very happy and (dare we say it) in love!
But their recent photographs are only the continued proof of their blossoming romance.
Not only did the pair attend several 2016 Golden Globes after parties together, they also met up with each other at Stella McCartney‘s Autumn 2016 Presentation during fashion week and then enjoyed a fun night out in Los Angeles shortly after.
Most recently, they were photographed getting cozy at singer Adele‘s concert in L.A. and then again at a Grammys party the same weekend.
Another source added, “Katy and Orlando are doing really well. They have been hanging out a lot over the past two months. They are a very chill pair…They both communicate great and laugh when they are around each other.”
She must have a thing for Brits I reckon, after being married to Russell Brand… Let’s hope this one lasts!

An unlikely British trio descended on Hollywood the other night when scruffy funnyman Russell Brand held court with a couple of his muso buddies – former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher and singer Morrissey.
The three were all smiles as they posed for Brand’s twitter pic.
He tweeted the snap with the caption: “Victimized by heroes. Me with Moz and Noel G. Quite badly bullied.”
A fun pic… Strange it was however, seeing Morrissey struggle a smile. He and Victoria Beckham have a lot in common that department!

Pop Superstar Katy Perry has revealed how her former hubby Russell Brand cold heartedly dumped her by TEXT.
The singer claims she hasn’t heard from the lothario funnyman since he messaged her more than a year ago to say their 14-month marriage was over.
Katy told Vogue: “He’s a very smart man, a magical man and I was in love with him when I married him.
“Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.”
Although the 28-year-old star accepts her hectic touring schedule was partly responsible for the failure of her marriage, she cryptically hinted there was more to the split than meets the eye.
She said: “I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day.
“I let go and I was like, ‘This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me.’ So I have moved on from that.”
Since the split Katy has dated musician John Mayer, but has confirmed their on/off relationship is over for good.
She is currently linked to tween heartthrob Robert Pattinson. Oo-er!

Despite his past battles with sex addiction, comedian Russell Brand insisted he never cheated on his ex-wife, pop star Katy Perry during their marriage, which ended in December 2011.
Adamant he was faithful, Russell told Esquire magazine: “When I’m in a relationship I’m diligently monogamous and stick to the principles agreed on within that relationship. You’ve got to, I think.
“But it’s going to be hard if I go into a monogamous relationship.
“I live a life where I have a lot of freedom, so if I meet someone and I go, ‘Right let’s be monogamous,’ that’s a f****** change.
“But I tried it and I loved it.”
Explaining the reasons behind their split, he added: “Some of it’s the fame, but I think getting married is… you’ve got a whole other person that you’ve got to make as important as you.
“It’s just hard isn’t it? She’s got a lot of options, I’ve got a lot of options, so you’ve got to really, really want it (to make marriage work).”
This is true Russell my dear… But clearly, Katie didn’t want it…(Ouch!)

Oh dear, poor ol’ Russell Brand is in hot water again.
This time the 37-year-old British funnyman is being sued for allegedly hitting a pedestrian with his car.
According to court documents, plaintiff, Victor Sneed alleges that he was struck by Brand’s car in Los Angeles last January .
The documents continue to claim that Sneed incurred hospital and medical expenses as well as a “loss of earning capacity” following the alleged accident, but does not specify as to Sneed’s alleged injuries.
In the lawsuit Sneed is seeking compensatory damages worth more than $25,000.
Easy target I’d say…
I reached out to Russ for a comment and so far, no reply!

I’ve heard it all now… Apparently, Russell Brand is said to be smitten with Geri Halliwell, AKA “Ginger Spice”!
What a pair!
The couple met weeks ago at the summer Olympics closing ceremony, when Geri reunited with the other Spice Girls and we saw Brand go all acid-trippy-Wonka-Godspell meets the Beatles. Since then, they have been inseparable… Er, Allegedly…
A close source to Russell said: “Things are getting very serious between them — they’re a proper couple now. They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics.”
He added: “People thought Russell was joking at the time, when he said he had a crush on Geri all over again, but it was true. They just clicked — they have so much in common.”
Another pal revealed: “He ended his relationship with Isabella Brewster, and is now dating Geri properly. They’ve exactly the same sense of humor and are serious about clean living.”
Neither 37-year-old Brand nor 40-year-old Halliwell have confirmed their union as of yet. Although I did leave a message on one of Gerri’s MANY cell phones to get some first hand juice, but still haven’t heard back from her…
I anxiously await her call. I know Ms. Halliwell loves reading this column too!

Russell Brand has always rather reckoned himself… Here’s the latest outrageous statement spouting from the scruffy funnyman’s very annoying mouth…
Russ believes the Queen of England should knight him. Oo-er!
The silly ex-hubby of pop superstar Katy Perry has convinced himself (for some bizarre reason) that he DESERVES to be awarded this honor… Um, not likely, Russ!
Brand was overheard saying: “They can’t ignore me for much longer. I should have a knighthood.
“Otherwise the people will revolt.”
Amusingly, the Hollywood wannabe, who is currently promoting his latest film, Rock of Ages – appearing with an all-star cast including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta Jones, went on to say, “It hurts my heart. It’s a great time in our country and I’m devastated not to be there.”
“I love the Queen and have never been so in love with her since I came to America,” he said. How patriotic!
After hearing these comments, I guess all we can do is laugh along with Brand (or at him)… I mean seriously, Russell Brand receiving a knighthood is about as funny as one of his stand-up comedies… Er, not very!
Here’s how Brand might look as a knight in my mock-up picture…

Its been four-and-a-half months since Russell Brand and Katy Perry filled for divorce, and now it seems the last tiny part of their attachment has gone at the push of a button!
Yes, that’s right, Russell Brand has finally blocked his ex-missus from his follow list on the popular social media site – Twitter!
The scruffy British comic-turned-actor is thought to have made the complete break after sexy popstar Katy was pictured getting rather cozy with Florence and the Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd as they partied at the Coachella Music Festival together. Since then, according to rumor, Perry and Ackroyd are now dating.
So, it’s not surprising Brand pushed the ‘unfollow’ button, because let’s face it, Perry didn’t hang around, she unfollowed the ex-hubby immediately after their split was announced.
And I doubt that the 27-year-old songstress will even noticed the dip in numbers; she still has another 19.2 million people following her!
