Katy Perry ‘tried to avoid’ Orlando Bloom at Stella’s show: hookup gone wrong?

As we’ve been discussing all week, there seemed to be something going on between Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry. Katy was a presenter at Sunday’s Golden Globes, and she did the party circuit after the show. At one of the parties, Orlando Bloom – who was then a casual acquaintance for Katy, I’m assuming – was hitting on her, big time. Like, he was following her around like a puppy, and sources claimed that they left together. Then, Tuesday evening, both Katy and Orlando showed up to Stella McCartney’s LA show. They came separately but the tabloids were buzzing that they were “on” now. I said days ago that while Katy has a love life littered with douchebags, I still thought she could do better than Orly, who is definitely at the low ebb of his career/stardom. Turns out she thinks so too.

Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry’s mutual admiration appears to have already fizzled after their Golden Globes flirt fest Sunday. The duo, who were getting very close at Harvey Weinstein and Netflix’s Globes after-party, avoided each other publicly on Tuesday at designer Stella McCartney’s star-studded 2016 autumn presentation in LA.

Perry arrived first to vinyl mecca Amoeba Music for the event and quickly dashed over to her friends, including Nicole Richie, a spy said.

“Her face was packed with makeup, but she looked great. She seemed to be having fun,” said the source.

Bloom showed up later and was “four or five aisles away” from Perry at the record store. We’re told: “He made a beeline in her direction, but she seemed to try to avoid him.” Bloom instead hung with rockers Beck and Dave Grohl.

It sounds less like Orlando and Katy BOTH avoided each other and more like she avoided him because eager-beavers are a turn-off. Ten bucks says that Orlando came to the Stella McCartney event just to see Katy too. What’s weird is that his ex-wife Miranda Kerr was also at the event, and there’s no word about them having any interaction at all. Anyway… it seems like whatever Katy and Orlando had was very, very brief. Maybe it was a one night thing and she’s totally over it. Maybe they didn’t even spend the night together and he was just following her around at all of the Globes parties and she realized she wasn’t into it. I do feel sorry for Orly… sort of. I mean… at least he still believes that he has the kind of pull to score one of the biggest pop stars in the world, right?

    I hate turbans. That is all

  2. TheOtherViv says:

    That kitten on her boobs is a lil scary. That’s all I got.
    Oh, and she’s avoiding him only in order not to repeat those embarassing pics everybody and their mama wanted to talk about.

  3. Wentworth Miller says:

    Why would he and the ex need to exchange words?
    What in the whole f#^k is she wearing…all over?

    • Apple Tartin says:

      maybe because they share a child and would hope they have some sort of civil relationship for the kid.

      • Wentworth Miller says:

        I didn’t know they had a child together, that’s why I ask why they would need to speak. They’re also at a party. No need to always be in each other’s face n space whether they’re friends or not.

  4. ninal says:

    She’s harmless but her style game and instincts are atrocious. And Orlando doesn’t realize it’s 2016, not 2003 when he was at the top of his game.

    • zinjojo says:

      Her sense of style is always, always awful.

      And Orlando isn’t aging very well — he was lovely when he was younger (and Legolas) but his looks have faded, just like his career.

      • Antonym says:

        He’s starting to resemble Sheen. Something about the jawline and thin face. I dunno, but it’s not good.

    • StormsMama says:

      Even when he was at the top he was gross. I remember seeing him at a party ten years ago and he was scrawny and skeevy looking. I was actually physically repulsed by him. Ew.

  5. mia girl says:

    I’m going for the “she’s just not that into you” theory.

  6. chaine says:

    maybe she suddenly realized that he looks like a young Hugh Hefner, and that’s a turn-off for her?

  7. Chris says:

    Orlando Bloom really has been on one terrible descent, hasn’t he? Fighting with Biebs, following Perry around… Eeesh. What the hell happened?

    • Dani2 says:

      It’s kinda sad, I remember when the first Pirates movie came out, he was the hottest thing for a little bit.

  8. Little Darling says:

    Hookup gone stalker.

    All gossip evidence shows she flirted and left and he got a little bunny boiler on her?

  9. QQ says:

    is easy enough for these folks to shoot a quick: so, we’re on later? Text while giving each other an ESE nod from across the room so I don’t even understand why people are expecting them to be all over each other in public

  10. Crumpet says:

    He does look awful in that photo where he is beaming hungrily at Perry. But I like Orlando and can not abide Perry, so I am trying to ignore my instincts on this one.

  11. Embee says:

    I’m going with “he cries after sex”. Katy has no time for that lol.

  12. Tania says:

    It’s a little creepy. I think it’s time for Orlando to go into TV. As an aside, she looks like she’s wearing a dental plate in the photo on the main page, she’s smiling really big. You’d think with all the money she has, she wouldn’t need a dental plate? I dunno.

  13. Snowflake says:

    I think Katy likes to play with guys and flirts even when she’s not into the dude. She prob did that with Orlando, he thinks she likes him, but she’s just passing time. I think Orlando’s cute, and you never hear about him sleeping around. Can’t stand Perry.

  14. Squiggisbig says:

    But isn’t John Mayer at the low ebb of his career too?

  15. Insomniac says:

    He got to hang out with Dave Grohl instead? I’d say Orly came out of things OK.

  16. DenG says:

    He looks like Ted Cruz. Ick.

  17. lili says:

    I thought she’s still with John Mayer ?? —went to a Dead & co ( 3 original Dead members with Mayer) concert in Nov. and she was there, sat beside the sound booth.

    Orly used to be the hottest heart throb back in the early aughts, he’s not aging well, maybe he should look for some tv jobs to revive his career.

  18. lile says:

    Eh. One good role and she will be punching his digits…

  19. Eru says:

    Its just so sad that he aged so badly. He looks worse and worse each year.

  20. Maca says:

    He hangs around with teen pop stars like JB’s ex, Selena Gomez. I get the impression he’d LOVE to have a thing with Katy and boost his fame. He seems like a nice guy but so devoid of substance and really a terrible actor. No hits and no serious roles like in ever. Yes, losing his looks too.

  21. vauvert says:

    Why does anyone think he is trying to boost his fame or anything? He does not have a history of trying to date the biggest names or being a fameho. Why can’t it be possible that he liked her, they had fun one night, and at the Stella event either they decided to hook up quietly later or she changed her mind. Nothing more than that. As far as I know he is one of the few guys who doesn’t kiss and tell. He never said one bad word about his exes, including Miranda. Whether he ages well or not is not relevant, if he were a woman those kind of comments would be frowned upon.
    He actually comes across as sweet and nice when it comes to relationships. Katy could do a lot worse, and has, given the douches she has been with. If she snubbed him, her loss.

  22. ElisaRiley says:

    You’re kidding me right- He thinks he still has the pull – Of course he does! Look at him wearing a lovely suit and just generally being a nice person and look at her, wearing god knows what! Look I like Perry as much as any other girl but come on! This is nothing to do with looks. Crawl out of your own arse and take a look that maybe they just didn’t have a ‘Thing’ to start with! Tabloids are too quick to put celebs together – ever heard of being friends with another person?
