‘American Idol’ Judge Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are Officially Dating!

The American Idol finale was talk of the town last night. Not only for crowning its American Idol 2018 winner, but also after one of its judges confirmed her relationship status. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are dating! This is what the “Swish Swish” singer seems to have hinted at last night’s episode. 

As the top three contestants took turns to wow the crowd and the judges, several stars also graced the Idol stage. Among the guests was The Bachelorette star Becca Kufrin. Interestingly, Perry happens to be a big fan of the reality star. 

The singer made sure to let Kufrin know that she is a fan, jokingly telling her that she wants to join the dating show. “Can I be in the running?” Perry asked before getting down on her knees and kissing Kufrin’s hand. 

“Yes, I’ll give you all my roses,” the reality star answered. Then the 33-year-old singer dropped the bomb, confirming that she is indeed not single anymore. “I’m not single but I still like you.”

While she did not reveal who she’s dating, it’s believed that she is pertaining to Orlando Bloom. She and the actor have recently been spotted spending time together again after calling it quits last year. 

The rumors of the couple rekindling their romance started swirling in January when it was reported that the two took a vacation in Maldives. Then in February Katy and Orlando were spotted cozying up in Prague. Photos of the couple showed them in high spirits as they strolled along the city with Bloom’s pet, Mighty. 

Then in April, the singer visited the Vatican in Rome with Bloom. The “Bon Appetite” artist was a speaker at the United to Cure event, a conference on cancer cure. She was accompanied by her mom and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor who she called “darling.”

“Happy Saturday, everyone. I’m here in Rome at the Vatican about to speak on meditation,” Perry said, before showing off her “mama,” Mary Hudson, and her “darling,” Orlando.

News of Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom dating should be a welcome news for fans who have been waiting for a confirmation from the two. They may be spending time apart though as Perry is currently on tour for her Witness: The Tour.
