Katy Perry reportedly doesn’t think Orlando Bloom cheated with Selena Gomez, but she was still left embarrassed by flirtatious pictures of the pair.
The Roar singer, 31, has been dating British actor Orlando since February (16), and things have moved quickly for the pair. As well as vacationing together and piling on numerous public displays of affection, it’s been rumoured they’ve even swapped house keys.
However a spanner was thrown into the works when 39-year-old Orlando was recently spotted looking cosy with Selena, 23, during a trip to a Las Vegas night club.
“They left separately, but there is definitely a flirtation there,” a source divulged to Britain’s Grazia magazine. “Despite vehement denials, it’s widely believed that they’ve hooked up in the past. Katy believes that Orlando didn’t cheat, but found it humiliating that everyone has seen her boyfriend in such a compromising position.”
The photos in question see Selena leaning in close to Orlando and the pair hugging, at an after party for one of Selena’s concerts.
The pair was previously linked in 2014, after Selena had split from on-off boyfriend Justin Bieber, who had also been linked to Orlando’s ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
Katy has had her fair share of bad boy exes, included an ill-fated marriage to Russell Brand and a long term romance with ladies man John Mayer.
“Katy was particularly stung because Orlando was supposed to be the antithesis of her ex, John Mayer, who is one of Hollywood’s biggest players,” the insider said. “This thing with Selena isn’t a deal-breaker, but it’s definitely a setback. What doesn’t help is that Selena is best friends with Taylor Swift, who publicly calls herself Katy’s ‘Straight-up enemy’.”
Katy has publicly stuck by Orlando, and the pair were recently seen looking happy in Cannes abroad Roman Abramovich’s yacht.
