It’s no secret that Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry were a thing after supposedly getting together back in January this year.
But after Bloom was pictured getting cosy with Selena Gomez earlier this week, are things already over for the celebrity couple?
According to the Daily Mail, six days ago, these pictures of Orlando Bloom and Selena Gomez cuddling up to one another in a Las Vegas nightclub went absolutely crazy over social media, with many claiming that the two were just a little too close for a taken man.

Since the incident, not one member of the threesome has commented on the photo, but a recent tweet by Katy Perry suggests that the topic of relationships is still fresh on her mind:
Now, of course, at first it just looks like a normal boring tweet – and, who knows, for all we know it could be. But if you delve a little deeper and look at the lyrics of the Peggy Lee song posted, then it suggests a hell of a lot more.
At one point in the song, written by Leiber and Stoller, it goes:
I fell in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world. We would take long walks by the river. Or just sit for hours gazing into each other’s eyes. We were so very much in love.
Then one day, he went away and I thought I’d die. But I didn’t. And when I didn’t I said to myself, is that all there is to love?
Inspired by the novel Disillusionment, by German novelist Thomas Mann, the dark and poignant lyrics chronicle a series of depressing events in a person’s life which lead them to become incredibly disillusioned.
Perhaps it’s merely a coincidence but I think it’s fair to say that the recent photo evidence of Gomez and Bloom have almost certainly drove the ‘I Kissed A Girl’ singer to disillusionment.
