Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have decided to take some time apart. The couple, who were together for a little over a year, have been spending a lot of special moments with each other recently, but it looks like that was not enough to keep them together.
Both of their representatives released a statement to PEOPLE to clear up any rumors about the couple's split. Their statement read: “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”
The news came as a surprise since the couple was photographed together just this past weekend at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party and everything seemed fine between them.

A source told the magazine that even though they posed together for the shot, the couple did not hang out at the party. The source said, “Katy didn’t spend much time with Orlando. They got together for a photo, but that was about it.”
Not only that, but Orlando shared a photo on Monday from Snapchat of him holding Katy's dog Nugget that read, "a mighty heart," which means that although they may be taking a small break, they are still a part of each other's lives.
The couple spent the holidays together with Katy's family, they were at the center of engagement rumors earlier this year and looked madly in love with each other. It is unclear as to why they are taking some time away, but it is clear that the singer has been busier than ever promoting her new single "Chained to the Rhythm," and preparing for her new era. Orlando travels all over the world for work and for charity work, so perhaps it is the time apart that has affected them.
We take the photo with Nugget as a clear example that they have ended things on good terms and this might mean that a reconciliation is possible for the future. We wish them both the best of luck!
