Are Miranda Kerr & Orlando Bloom really on the verge of a split?

Miranda Kerr Orlando Bloom

Here’s a photo of Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr looking pretty damn happy as they walked through the New York City streets on 6/25. I know they’ve only been married for two years, but they really have always seemed like a solid couple ever since they started dating. Unfortunately, I have finally learned (thank you, Heidi Klum and Seal) that even the happiest looking couples (celebrity and otherwise) are vulnerable to the crumbling of a relationship. Now talk is swirling that Mirando and Orlando are on the outs and possibly headed for a divorce. These pesky rumors appear to have originated after Miranda was spotted on 7/11 in NYC while she headed out of a photo shoot. At the time, she was not wearing her wedding ring as she left to pick up her son, Flynn. No big deal, right? She was in a hurry.

But wait! Last week on 7/17, Orlando was spotted having a chat on his cell phone outside a London pub, and he wasn’t wearing his wedding ring either. Strange, right?

Orlando Bloom

Well there’s been no official word from Orlando’s camp, but Miranda’s rep has strenuously denied rumors of an impending split:

Supermodel Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom could be headed for divorce, according to reports.

The Victoria’s Secret model and the Pirates of the Caribbean actor have been spotted out without their wedding rings on, and friends reportedly say that their marriage could be on the rocks.

“She’s not wearing her ring, and she’s had a lot on her plate – it could be that somewhere along the way her relationship with Orlando may have slipped between the cracks,” a friend told Australia’s Famous magazine. Another friend said the relationship between Bloom, 35, and Kerr, 29, “might be on the rocks.”

But despite the missing rings and friend’s statements to the press, Kerr’s rep, Annie Kelly, has denied the claims. “There is absolutely no truth in the headline or story,” she said.

The couple have been married since July 2010 and have an 18-month old son, Flynn.

While most of us familiar with celebrity gossip will recognize that denials of marital trouble — whether or not problems truly exist — are merely par for the PR course, but I certainly hope these rumors are just that. Especially because when I think of this couple, Kaiser’s words come to mind: “Orly loves Miranda so much, he’s just a flat-out dork with her.” My gut feeling says that Orly will keep being a dork, and Miranda will continue to allow him to do so for her and only her. But I could be wrong.

    I love them together, I hope this isn’t true.

  2. Zimmer says:

    I am always forgetting to wear my ring. My relationship is not on the rocks. If that’s the only proof, it is not enough.

    • Smokey blues says:

      Yes I agree, this is not proof enough. My parents have been happily married for 32 years, and I have never seen either one of them wear their ring lol.

    • phlyfiremama says:

      Exactly! As a Licensed Acupuncturist, I take my wedding ring off all the time so that it doesn’t get in my way when I am doing the needles, cupping, & Tui-Na (Chinese style massage). The only message there is that it is simply more convenient to have it off at certain times.

    • chaser says:

      Same, same. My husband never wears his.

      Anyway, Orlando isn’t wearing his ring (by the looks of it) in the top photo when they are holding hands, so meh!

  3. brin says:

    I hope this is just “slow news week make up divorce rumors” because this would be surprising and sad if true.

  4. Nanea says:

    In many other countries it’s no big deal if people don’t wear wedding rings on the job or while out e.g. shopping for groceries.

    (Many other countries also never gave in to DeBeer’s bullying guys into spending 3 salaries on average for an engagement ring)

  5. Julie says:

    i dont follow any celeb that closely but isnt it normal to take of your ring when you do a photoshoot or a movie where you dont play someone married?

    • RocketMerry says:

      That’s true, during photoshoots they often ask that models wear no wedding rings, and the same goes for actors.

      Also, they could be planning a wedding wovs renewal, and be changing rings or refashioning them. Gosh, please, anything BUT a split!!

      • KO says:

        I’d bet that the missing rings are totally work related. After shoots, I usually almost always forget to put my ring on right away, until I see it dangling on my key ring in the ignition. If I ever wake up the next day and realize that its STILL not on, I’ll feel a little bad, until I realize that my husband didn’t notice it missing either! :)

  6. Lizzie says:

    I too hope it isn’t true. But you rarely see pics of them together. It is either him or her with the baby. I know that is no proof, so fingers crossed it is just a another rumour.

  7. lisa2 says:

    I think they get more media coverage because of the cute baby and not because of their work. Other than the Hobbit what is Orlando doing? What happened to his career. Miranda is a model but why is she being covered so much? I don’t get it.

    they are a cute couple with a cute baby. I wonder if all the attention will last when Flynn gets older and is not the cute baby anymore.

    • Marianne says:

      I know Orlando did The Three Musketeers last year. Looking at his imdb page, and seems like he did a few indies.

      I think unfortunately he got replaced by the latest good looking actor…who will probably be replaced by the latest good looking actor and so forth.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I haven’t seen Orlando Bloom in anything for a while. If this rumor is true, that could be a contributing factor to the split-actors’ identities are so often tied to how much work they’re getting and how frequently their egos are being stroked. An out of work actor is probably a pain in the ass to deal with.

      • Mira says:

        Kitten – Reminds me Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. EH was being an asshole when Uma’s career was soaring and they split eventually.

    • Turtle Dove says:

      I agree, lisa2. To me, they are getting more and more known more for their baby pimping than their careers. Sure.. model… actor… and pap magnets with the child.

      • Mac says:

        Heaven forbid that a mother and father spend time outside their home with their kid.

        If we never saw the child people would complain that they are putting their careers ahead of the child

        If the only proof is a lack of rings then I wonder what could be said about my parents celebrating their 50th this year and Dad’s ring has been in storage for 40 years and Mom hasn’t worn hers for over 15 years.

  8. Micki says:

    If a ring is the only “proof” I call it BS.I don’t even know where my ring IS and my husband wears his only on official meetings at work.
    The rocks? Only in our afternoon cocktails.

  9. sarah says:

    Orlando, baby, call me and I’ll comfort you in this troubled time. ;)

  10. cody says:

    There are plenty of times my husband and I don’t wear our wedding rings, doesn’t mean our marriage is on the rocks.

  11. beyonce's bump says:

    color me uninterested….NEXT!

  12. Enn says:

    He isn’t wearing a ring in any of these photos, including the ones where they’re together.

    • Fatkid says:

      Was about to post the exact same thing. I’m calling bs on this story. Obviously the rings aren’t a big deal to this couple.

    • Brittany says:

      I was just about to say, he’s not wearing his wedding ring in the header photo or in the last photo. Just because people don’t wear their rings, that doesn’t mean they’re not happy. It’s not a sign that the end is here; it’s just that they didn’t happen to put on their ring. That’s life.

    • L says:

      +1 I noticed that as well.

      I don’t wear my ring in the summer (my hands swell like crazy). But commitment is in the heart, not on the hand.

  13. francesca1 says:

    The only thing that makes me wonder is that she hasn’t gotten pregnant again yet. She seems to be so into motherhood I would have thought they’d have another bun in the oven by now.

  14. Chris: now with 10% less negativity says:

    Meh. Bloom has always come across as a bit of a sleaze to me and I hate it when sleaze bags get their way. I would’n't be crying a river if she dumped his ass and took a big chunk of change with her.

  15. karen says:

    I’m waiting for the Miranda is pregnant with baby #2 announcement, but not a divorce one.

  16. really says:

    A couple trying to hide the fact that their relationship is on the rocks *would* wear their rings.

  17. Dredz says:

    Just because they’re not wearing rings, they’re heading for divorce? Gosh… Must be slow news day

  18. AnnieN says:

    We stopped wearing our rings during my last pregnancy because they no longer fit. I do wear mine sometimes but last time hubby tried to put on his, we almost had to cut it off :/

    A ring doesn’t make a relationship, people do!

  19. Vera says:

    Hey Bedhead,

    I recall you guys posted some pics of him leading her down the street, holding her hand angrily. Or was it another blog?

  20. Illconveniece says:

    They aren’t wearing the rings in any of the pics where they look happy either… c’mon people.

  21. Cathy says:

    I’ve been married 20 years and lost my ring at least 15 years ago. I haven’t worn one since. A ring does not a marriage make. I call BS on this story.

  22. Bubulle says:

    According to an old Ted Casablancas’ BV their relationshiop is an agreement, not sure if I believe it but MK sure loves the attention, she keeps parading around her baby like an accessory and is almost never seen with her husband.

    • says:

      This. Screw the rings, people should be questioning why they’re never together.

      And it seems like everyday there’s a new set of photos of her with the baby or him with the baby. Really why so much interest in these two? Just because they have a baby? She’s a VS model (not a supermodel) and he’s a washed up actor, they shouldn’t generate so many sightings, yet everyday there’s a new one? Who are the people requesting these photos?

      And as far as I can remember it’s never of the two together. She’s usually in NY/at LAX/Australia, and he’s in London. For a “happy family” they sure do spend a lot of time away from each other.

      • hoya_chick says:

        Wow, I said the same thing! I definitely think divorce is not too farfetched for these too.

    • Bodhi says:

      Believing TC is like believing in the tooth fairy.

  23. Birdie says:

    Look at the last picture posted with Orlando and Miranda, he is standing next to her and he is not wearing his wedding ring. So I guess it is not a big deal.

  24. kristiner says:

    I’m always thinking of divorce for them. They struck me as a stay together without the ring and paper couple and they were happy being all bohemian and carefree like that.

    They DEFINITELY rushed to get married because she accidentally got knocked up. And I always think simply having the ring and paper will be their downfall. Had they stayed just together with the baby they would last longer. I don’t see them lasting too much longer.

    Johnny and Vanessa called it quits but they stayed together for a long time and the whole just kids no ring and paper worked.

    • hoya_chick says:

      Totally agree! They got married because she got pregnant. That’s probably the worst reason to get married. I also, am generally annoyed when people who are already wealthy and accomplished don’t put their family/relationship first. You can tell (because she is always calling the paps to take her picture when she has Flynn) that they do not spend a lot of time together. Sometimes they are not even on the same continent for what seems like weeks! And for what? A crappy movie no one is gonna see or care about? A photo shoot for some mall catalog? If people would put half the effort they put into trying to be more famous into their families/marriages divorces wouldn’t be so rampant. Marriages don’t sustain themselves. And what’s more important especially when you bring an innocent child into the mix than trying to actively make it work!?

      • willjass says:

        @hoya_chick….you said it best.

        In showbiz, careers “come and go”. Even the biggest stars fade away. Just look at Julia Roberts, I hated her as an actress but she seems to be prioritizing her family and never used her kids as a way to enhance her image (*cough*TomKat*cough*).Kudos to her and also, to Nicole Kidman.

  25. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Meh, in their line of work it seems like you wouldn’t wear rings all the often. Also, what’s up with her inner thigh in the first pic? What a weird angle.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      What you’re seeing there is her bag,thru her thighs.

      I personally would never have to worry about an awkward photo like that. Because you can’t see between my thighs.

  26. lady_luck says:

    Well the “friends” seem to be very vague on details – for a start.

    They’re a lovely couple. Miranda is one very pretty lady – gorgeous dimples and killer legs.

    Let’s hope this ain’t true. And especially for little Flynn.

  27. TG says:

    I hope they are still happy together. Though, come to think of it I only ever see pics of her and the baby. Never pics of the 3 or them. he is cute but pocket sized I think. She is adorable.

  28. Pandora says:

    she just got spray tanned by the looks, she rarely looks that orange. Makes perfect sense taking of any bling, firstly so you don’t have white patches, secondly so you don’t get that gunk all over your jewellery. storms n teacups”……….

  30. Boromir's Bytch says:

    Orlando hasn’t worn a wedding ring on his hand since a month after their “secret” wedding ceremony. He usually wears a gold ring on a chain around his neck along with a couple other pendants so unless he’s shirtless you wouldn’t know if he’s wearing his ring or not. Miranda has a new PR manager, maybe she thinks this will get them some attention.

    • AnnieN says:

      I think the ring he wears around his neck is the one they all got for Lord of the Rings.

      • tina says:

        He did not get a ring from the Lord of the Rings. I believe only Elijah has one of the rings. The actors all got a tattoo but only Frodo has a ring.

  31. Louise says:

    He’s not wearing his wedding ring in the photo with Miranda either..Not a big deal

  32. VanillaFrosting says:

    I hope it is not true.

    Not wearing rings is really not good proof. I wasn’t wearing my ring for two weeks recently because they loosened a diamond while cleaning it. Also, my mom went years without a ring until too many men started hitting on her.

  33. G says:

    Maybe they are getting their rings upgraded geesh!

  34. Jess says:

    I’m rooting for them. Beautiful happy couple.

  35. Ally says:

    Funny, I’m noticing her orange nail polish, and I like it.

  36. Crystalline says:

    Seems like neither of them like to wear rings, as is shown in their happy couple shot up there. Its not a big deal, they are probably just fine.

  37. Amy says:

    “Now talk is swirling that Mirando and Orlando are on the outs and possibly headed for a divorce.”

    I think you just coined their couple name (unless it already existed).


  38. Roma says:

    Most models do not wear jewelry for photo shoots as they are asked to remove it and then it’s often unattended. I don’t recall OB ever wearing his ring.

  39. jferber says:

    If it’s true, I’d bet money it’s because Orlando can’t keep it in his pants. He was a notorious womanizer back in the day. As an acquaintance once said, “After a few years of marriage, the woman gets comfortable and the man gets bored.” I like her, but I neither like nor trust him.

  40. stellalovejoydiver says:

    I don´t like her. She´s trying so much to have this hippie organic image, when she´s clearly materialistic and she used to smoke or still does.

  41. jlw says:

    In the first pic, where they’re so happily holding hands walkin down the street….Orly doesn’t have a ring on then.
    So, no big deal.

  42. Shaboo says:

    They look like brother and sister

    • jes_sayin says:

      Thank you! They’ve never looked like a legit couple to me, they look and act like strangers.

      Something’s always been off about these two.

  43. The Other Katherine says:

    For some reason, all I can see in these photos is the fact that Orlando Bloom looks like an older version of Levi Johnston. ICK.

  44. puac says:

    I don’t believe the story, however this woman has always been married to the cameras and her shallow self in the mirror that’s for sure.

  45. Chris: now with 10% less negativity says:

    Yeah because by not wearing rings no one would know that these worlds famous celebrities aren’t together. Give me a break.

  46. GreyPhantom says:

    She has beautiful poise/posture. She is a beautiful women, she has positive energy and sweet unassuming charm, exceptional bone structure.

  47. A judgement says:

    This is pure judgement, I admit… but it seems, she is more into the baby than into him. I know, sorry. I told you I’m judging. But, she seems a bit spoiled and seems the type that has to have her way… She’s gorgeous, but with that I think she’s spoiled. And, I think he was infatuated at first, but then became jaded. My opinion, which means nothing. :)

  48. greenieweenie says:

    Orlando’s not wearing a ring in the photo where he is holding Miranda’s hand either. Where I’m from, it is not our culture for men to wear a wedding ring. And, I often don’t wear mine–it’s uncomfortable when my fingers swell and neither does my husband. Speculation seems premature.

  49. DaisyDarlyn says:

    Baby Flynn and Harper seven would make a cute ‘chubby’ couple!!

  50. Amanda_M87 says:

    I don’t really care for either of them, but if this is the only proof of a split, then I doubt it’s true.

  51. novaraen says:

    I’ve always thought they looked a bit alike…like siblings. Anyway…he’s sort of lost his hotness but slap a Legolas wig on him and some green leathers and I am in HEAVEN. lol
