The world was shocked when Katy Perry and Orlando bloom announced they were going their separate ways over just under a year of dating.
But recent photos of Orlando Bloom cosying up to a mystery brunette just days before the Oscars may have caused strain in their relationship.
The Daily Mail published photos of The Lord Of The Rings star with the woman in question, Erin McCabe, at a pre-Oscars bash at Tao nightclub.
Also at the event was Jeff Bridges and Emily Ratajkowsk although Katy Perry was noticeably absent.
While there is nothing to suggest there was anything other than a friendship between Bloom and McCabe, it was no doubt a bitter blow for Perry to witness.
Just yesterday, the star couple called time on their romance.
A statement to WHO from both of their reps reads, “Before rumours or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.”
The two stars were recently seen at the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday after weeks of jet-setting travels apart.
